Imagine Dragons made a stop in Indy on their 2022 tour in support of their 5th studio album Mercury – Act 1. The world tour started February 6 and continues through July 16 ending in Paris. The Grammy award winning quartet hails from Las Vegas and includes lead singer Dan Reynolds, drummer Dan Platzman, guitarist Wayne Sermon, and bassist Ben McKee. A great turnout of fans welcomed the group as they took the stage. Their high energy production got started with “My Life” off the new album complete with confetti and CO2 canons.  They never let up from there. They proceeded right into “Believer” which the captive audience sang together in unison. Frontman Dan Reynolds welcomed the crowd and expressed their joy of being able to perform live once again, seeing people and feeling their energy. Mid show the band performed an astonishing 4 song acoustic portion which included “Next to Me” and the Bob Marley cover of “Three Little Birds.”  The second half of the set ramped things back up to high octane with their hits “Whatever It Takes’” and “Radioactive.” They wrapped up the evening with “My Life” coming back full circle from where they began. Imagine Dragons put on another incredible performance not only for their music, but also for their message of compassion, love and tolerance in these trying times. Reynold poured his heart and soul into the performance. Their charismatic two-hour, 25+ song performance was appreciated by everyone in attendance and only smiling faces were seen as people exited the arena.
