On December 1, 2005, the White Stripes will make history on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Not momentous, earth-shattering history, but history all the same, as they will be the first musical act to play live on the popular faux news program. Fans may remember the notable week in 2003 when the White Stripes appeared for four nights in a row on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
In a press release quoted by MTV, Stewart said, “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. This will have to suffice.”
