Jimmy Kimmel will unite REO Speedwagon and Imagine Dragons to a one-time-only performance as “Mash Up supergroup” IMAGINE REO SPEEDRAGONS. Featuring a secret hit track, the performance will air on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC Monday, May 4 11:35|10:35c. REO Speedwagons’ Kevin Cronin said, “I talked to Wayne from Imagine Dragons yesterday, and both our bands are totally psyched about doing the ‘Mash Up Monday.’ We all love Jimmy, and we're gonna play one of our favorites like it’s never been played before. IMAGINE REO SPEEDRAGONS is gonna rock!”
In February, Jimmy Kimmel Live launched “Mash Up Mondays” (#mashupmondays), a series of one-of-a-kind musical performances that brings together two big name bands to perform one of their classics in “pun-happy” combinations. Previous “Mash Up Monday” include such stars as Weezer and ZZ Top, aka Wee-Z Top; Kenny G and Warren G; Morris Day & The HAIM; and Blackstreet alongside Aloe Blacc as Aloe Blaccstreet.
Watch Morris Day & the HAIM perform "Jungle Love" as part of Jimmy Kimmel Live's Mash Up Mondays:
