If you’ve been anywhere near a radio in the past few years, you already know that Imagine Dragons has been all over the airwaves since 2012 when they released their Grammy Award-winning single, “Radioactive.” I remember the first time I heard that song. Admittedly, I was pretty late to the game. In early 2013, my college roommate (whose taste in music differs drastically from mine) drove me to the convenience store. She was doing me a huge favor as I was a freshman without a car on campus and I was in desperate need of some late-night snacks for exams coming up. She put her phone on shuffle and among her usual hip-hop and R&B jams, “Radioactive” started playing. Needless to say, I was shocked. But I. Was. Hooked.
Six years, three albums, and numerous awards, accolades, and milestones later, they have gained a massive following and are currently on their Evolve World Tour, with 123 tour dates spanning five continents.
They began the tour on September 26, 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona, (we caught the Charlotte stop) and will end back in the USA over a year later on October 20, 2018 in Frisco, Texas. They are currently on the first European leg of their tour and will be playing the O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic, in just under two weeks on April 16. The show has been sold out for months now and posters have been pasted all over the city, getting fans excited for the big day.
So what can fans expect at the show? As this tour supports their third and most recent album, Evolve, the setlist is sure to be heavy on the new stuff. Bangers like “Thunder” and “Whatever It Takes” are givens for the setlist.
And of course, what’s a show without a little nostalgia? For those who have been there since day one, they’ll probably have a few of their early hits from Night Visions and Smoke + Mirrors (think “Demons” and “It’s Time”) mixed in, as well. Whichever Imagine Dragons era you’re most into, you won’t be disappointed.
Imagine Dragons is known for their giant stage presence. Their sound fills a room when you’re just listening to the record – their live show will take it to another level as an energetic and heart-pounding experience for fans. Between confetti, smoke, lights, epic drumming, intense and dramatic energy from all band members, and a few surprises up their sleeve for the audience, this sold-out show is sure to be unforgettable.
I haven’t seen Imagine Dragons live (yet…), but based on videos I’ve watched and other fans I’ve talked to, this tour is a treat for attendees who are looking for a concert experience bigger and better than they’ve ever seen before, while still achieving that intimate connection with the music that you would get at a smaller show.
If they’re coming to a city near you, be sure to check them out!
