Jack White served as the musical guest on this weekend’s Woody Harrelson-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live (SNL). The episode marked both White and Harrelson’s fifth appearances on SNL, placing them in the rarified “Five-Timers Club”—an honor for which they received their coveted five-timer jackets at the end of the episode.

During the episode, Jack White and his Supply Chain Issues Tour backing band—Dominic Davis (bass), Daru Jones (drums), and Quincy McCrary (keyboards)—delivered two high-intensity live performances. First, Jack and the gang tore through a pairing of “Taking Me Back” and “Fear of the Dawn”, the first two tracks on White’s first of two 2022 solo albums, Fear of the Dawn. The band returned later in the evening for a rendition of “A Tip From You To Me”, one of the many standouts featured on Jack’s second 2022 album, Entering Heaven Alive. Watch Jack White deliver both performances from on his fifth visit to SNL below.

Earlier this week, White fine-tuned all three songs that appeared on SNL (and plenty more) during an intimate underplay at Brooklyn, NY’s Brooklyn Steel. Read Live For Live Music‘s full review of the Brooklyn show here. With no further dates on his schedule following a busy year on the road in 2022, the immediate future is something of a mystery for Jack White. Considering his well-documented history of prolific creation, however, we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s already a new chapter of his ever-evolving story in the works.
