White Stripes, one more time


One more time

Jack White and Meg White, the rock duo better known as the White Stripes, will perform for next Friday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” the band’s publicist said in an e-mail message. The band has appeared together infrequently since its 2007 album “Icky Thump.” The show is Mr. O’Brien’s final episode as host of “Late Night” before Jimmy Fallon, the former “Saturday Night Live” star, takes over on March 2; Mr. O’Brien becomes host of NBC’s “Tonight Show” on June 1. … U2 will be the musical guest for a full week on CBS’s “Late Show With David Letterman,” from March 2 through 6, The Associated Press reported. The band’s new album, “No Line on the Horizon,” will be released on March 3.
