REO Speedwagon will appear on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night (May 4) along with Imagine Dragons in an exclusive, one-time-only supergroup performance, being dubbed “Imagine REO Speedragons.”
“I talked to Wayne from Imagine Dragons yesterday, and both our bands are totally psyched about doing the ‘Mash Up Monday’,” said REO’s Kevin Cronin. “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 f*ckin’ rock!”
Kimmel launched “Mash Up Mondays” in February to bring together big name acts to perform their classics in “pun-happy” combinations. Previous performances have included Weezer and ZZ Top as “Wee-Z Top,” “Kenny and Warren G,” “Morris Day & The Haim,” and Blackstreet and Aloe Blacc as “Aloe Blaccstreet.”
Tune in to Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night at 11:35 / 10:35 pm CT on ABC.
