Arcade Fire will appear as musical guests on “Saturday Night Live” for the fifth time


Arcade Fire goes for five on “Saturday Night Live.”

The Montreal rockers were announced as musical guests on the May 7 show hosted by actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

It’s the fifth time they’ve performed on the show under their own name, and the sixth if you’re counting when they were Mick Jagger’s backing band in 2012, a role they shared that night with Foo. fighters.

This puts them among an elite group of musical guests who have hit the “SNL” stage at least five times, including Miley Cyrus, James Taylor, Kanye West, Rihanna and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Fellow Canadian Neil Young performed the show four times, while Paul Simon was the musical guest 14 times during his career.

Arcade Fire is gearing up to release their new album “WE,” which will be released the day before it appears on “SNL.”

The group also recently announced that they will replace the Foo Fighters at the Osheaga festival in Montreal on July 29.
