"We are happy to welcome Adam back to SNL in what is sure to be a special night," SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels said in a statement.

Sandler announced in March a new North American comedy tour that is set to kick off on May 31 at the Treasure Island Amphitheatre in Minneapolis before wrapping up June 30 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine, Fla.

The tour comes after Sandler released on Netflix a new comedy special titled 100% Fresh. Sandler was featured doing stand-up, telling real-life stories, performing original songs and paying tribute to the late Chris Farley who also starred on SNL.

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington will be hosting SNL on Saturday.
