White Stripes set to make live return

Jack and Meg set for TV appearence this week (February 20)

The White Stripes are set to reunite for a live performance on US TV this week (February 20).

Jack and Meg White are confirmed as the musical guests on NBC’s ‘Late Night With Conan O’Brien’ this Friday.

The performance will mark the first time the Detroit duo have played onstage together since cancelling a slew of tour dates in September 2007 due to the drummer suffering from acute anxiety.

It has not been announced whether the band will perform new material on the show or not.

The pair’s last public appearance together was in June 2008, when Meg briefly ran onstage during a gig by Jack‘s ‘other’ band The Raconteurs in Detroit – although she didn’t play any music on that occasion.

The February 20 show of the ‘Late Night With Conan O’Brien’ is the presenter’s last before he takes over from Jay Leno on ‘The Tonight Show’.

In 2003 The White Stripes performed a week-long residency on O’Brien‘s show.
