Fitz & The Tantrums, Garbage, Meghan Trainor Scheduled To Perform On “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Update: ABC ended up changing this week’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” schedule.

The Garbage performance aired on June 14 rather than June 15. Oprah, who was listed as the interview guest for June 15, will now appear on the June 16 “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” that precedes game six of the NBA Finals.

Instead of an original episode, ABC will re-run the 6/8 episode (Ghostbusters new and old, Post Malone) on 6/15.
ABC has confirmed three musical acts for this week’s string of late-night “Jimmy Kimmel Live” episodes.

According to the network, Fitz & The Tantrums will celebrate the release of its new, self-titled album with a performance on the June 13 episode. The broadcast will also feature Kevin Hart and Constance Zimmer.

Garbage, which will be supporting its new album “Strange Little Birds,” will play the June 15 episode. The episode features a marquee interview guest in the form of Oprah Winfrey.

Meghan Trainor is listed as the musical performer for the June 16 episode. The televised performance will be taken from the outdoor mini-concert that is scheduled for June 15.

The June 16 episode will also feature interviews with Mindy Kaling and Ben Mendelsohn.

The June 14 episode will be a re-run of this past Tuesday’s episode; ABC has yet to announce details on the June 17 broadcast. Official listings follow:
