Imagine Dragons to Perform on NBC’s 2/17 “The Tonight Show” (Updated)

Update: According to NBC, Imagine Dragons’ performance on “The Tonight Show” will take place on February 17. The network originally said the band was set to perform on 2/16.

Chris Brown is now listed as the February 16 performer.

Not part of the bill? Not a problem. A Target commercial was all the members of Imagine Dragons needed to steal the show during Sunday’s broadcast of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

That Imagine Dragons can resonate in such a manner does not, however, mean the band always needs to resonate in such a manner. Traditional performance bookings are also suitable.

To promote the February 17 release of new album “Smoke + Mirrors,” Imagine Dragons will engage in one of those traditional bookings.

NBC revealed Imagine Dragons as the musical act for its 2/16 edition of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

The episode, which will begin at 11:35PM ET on February 16 but ultimately extend into the “Smoke + Mirrors” release day, will also feature visits from Edward Norton and Craig Robinson.

NBC’s latest “Tonight Show” listings follow:

Tuesday, February 10: Guests include Dakota Johnson, Anthony Anderson and musical guest Mark Ronson. Show 207
