They last stormed New Zealand two years ago in support of their chart-topping second album, Smoke + Mirrors. Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons will bring their Evolve World Tour to New Zealand this May.
Formed in 2009, Imagine Dragons – frontman Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee and drummer Daniel Platzman – have had a massive past 12 months thanks to their third album, Evolve. Released in June 2017, Evolve produced Billboard’s second longest #1 single run in the US chart’s history with ‘Believer’, also providing the band’s fourth Top 10 hit in the majestic, beat-heavy ‘Thunder’. What’s more, in 2017 Imagine Dragons were ranked the sixth most streamed band on Spotify worldwide!
The quartet initially built their grassroots following via an independently released string of EPs, before breaking out globally with multi-platinum debut album Night Visions back in 2012. It would see them embark on their first world tour, which turned into an extensive five-year run. Night Visions marked the first of several career highlights for Imagine Dragons, the album reaching #4 on the ARIA Album Chart and becoming Spotify’s most-streamed album, thanks to smashing hits including the diamond-selling ‘Radioactive’ – which took out ‘Best Rock Performance’ at the 2014 Grammys.
Joining the band on their arena tour is special guests The Temper Trap, who return after the success of their latest album Thick As Thieves, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart and became their second album to take out the top spot. Rumours of new music are circulating – don’t miss The Temper Trap at these epic shows!
Backed with a collection of fresh songs, and a set sharpened from rigorous touring on this current world run, don’t miss the chance to see Imagine Dragons breathe fire into every venue they hit on their upcoming Evolve World Tour in May 2018!
