    Imagine Dragons gave Las Vegas residents and visitors another reason love the band's home city when they performed earlier this week in front of an unsuspecting crowd at Bellagio Resort & Casino for the Crackle original concert series, called Playing It Forward, presented by Las Vegas.

    This episode of Playing It Forward will be available via Crackle on Friday, November 21 and it features the aforementioned secret show.

    The Las Vegas quartet performed for an amazed crowd in front of Bellagio in Las Vegas.

    Crackle's original music series Playing It Forward is a special documentary-style music series produced by Team Downey, an entertainment company founded by Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey, as well as veteran music producer/composer Tony Berg and Kevin Lake. The "Playing It Forward" music movement showcases surprise street performances by some of the world's biggest artists in unplanned, unexpected environments across the country benefiting music education and charities of the artists' choice.

    Everything about this concept is fucking cool.

    In addition to creating unforgettable content, Playing It Forward is committed to changing lives and supporting organizations dedicated to preserving music education. Crackle will donate $100,000 per episode to the charity of the artists' choice. This episode of Playing It Forward will benefit music education programs in four Las Vegas schools including: Bonanza High School (singer Dan Reynolds' alma mater), Valley High School, Sunrise High School and Bailey Middle School.

    Good music x good cause!

    "I will never forget Mrs. Thompson, my music teacher at R. Guild Gray Elementary School here in Vegas, who took the time to help me individually, or Mr. Roberts at Kenny Guinn Middle School," said Dragons' vocalist Dan Reynolds. "Our band wouldn't exist if it weren't for skilled, patient music teachers and every kid deserves that chance. We're grateful that Playing It Forward is working to fund music education at some of the schools here in our hometown that need it most."

    Additional unexpected performances from Playing it Forward will be announced at a later date.

    Anyone plan to Play It Forward?
