Imagine Dragons Tickets
After their debut album, Night Visions, was released in 2012, alt rockers, Imagine Dragons, embarked on an epic two year 150 headliner 50 festival global tour.
The crazy schedule did not prevent them working on new material. In fact the act of writing helped them stay grounded says frontman Dan Reynolds.
“So many things were changing for us so quickly, the only way to feel some kind of stability was to keep writing.
Going up to my hotel room to work on new songs became something I looked forward to every night on tour.
There were definitely a few times when the person next door’s banging on the wall because it’s 4 a.m. and they’re trying to sleep and I’m in there belting out some song I just wrote.”
The result of all that late night creativity was, of course, Smoke + Mirrors which was the first of Imagine Dragons releases to be recorded in their own studio. Imagine being one of those hotel guests who had banged on the wall, only to recognise the song on the airwaves a year later!
Imagine Dragons were always superlative live performers. Even before Night Visions was released, their inventive work and stage presence had amassed a loyal following. They play to sold out crowds in the UK and their upcoming 2018 tour is likely to be no different.
The Imagine Dragons 2018 UK Tour kicks off in Birmingham Genting Arena on 24 Feb, 2018. Dates follow in Dublin 3Arena, London O2, Manchester Arena and then a final, epic, gig in Glasgow’s SSE Hydro on 4th March.
