Comedy’s Daily Show Shows Its Stripes


The White Stripes will become the first band to perform on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Thursday, Dec. 1.

The band just completed a 40-date U.S. tour in support of new album Get Behind Me Satan.

“We've never had a musical performance on the show before -- not because we haven't wanted one, but because we were holding out for a reunited Spandau Ballet,” Stewart said in a prepared statement. “This will have to suffice.”
