Everything at the show was planned to the smallest detail, and designed for a big show, just Las Vegas. Imagine Dragons are loud, colorful and American – and very professional. Their voice is wide, and the words are sometimes vulgar, sometimes very personal. Music that inspires millions of people around the world: they buy their albums, stream their songs on Spotify and let the band record the chime.
