Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater Virginia Beach, VA. July 3, 2018

Really, there are no words….this show is truly incredible – a visual masterpiece that just needs to be seen! The music, the band, the production, the crowd energy – none of that can be conveyed through words to do it justice. Lets just say, I couldn’t get enough and had to listen to them all the way home!

IMAGINE DRAGONS BIOGRAPHY

A Grammy Award-winning alt-rock outfit with a knack for crafting stylish, stadium-ready anthems as emotionally charged as they are radio-friendly, Las Vegas-based Imagine Dragons had their genesis in Provo, Utah, where vocalist Dan Reynolds met drummer Andrew Tolman while the two attended Brigham Young University. In 2009, the group, which by this time included guitarist Daniel Wayne Sermon, bass player Ben McKee, and Tolman's wife Brittany Tolman on keys and backing vocals, had made a name for itself regionally and relocated to Reynolds' hometown of Las Vegas to record a pair of well-received EPs (Imagine Dragons and Hell and Silence) at the Killers' Battle Born Studios. A third EP, It's Time, arrived the following year and helped land the group a record deal with Interscope. The Tolmans parted ways with the group prior to the Interscope deal, and Daniel Platzman took over on drums.

In 2012, Imagine Dragons hit it big with the Continued Silence EP and their debut long-player, Night Visions, the latter of which debuted at the number two spot on the Billboard 200 and landed the group multiple awards -- it later went double platinum in the U.S., largely on the smash success of "Radioactive," which became the biggest-ever digital rock track in America. During 2013, two other hits followed: "Demons" in the U.S. and "On Top of the World" elsewhere. The group spent the bulk of 2014 finishing its second album. Co-produced by Alex da KidSmoke + Mirrors, the band's sophomore long-player, was released in February 2015 and debuted at number one, preceded by the singles "I Bet My Life" and "Shots." The band toured often between June of 2015 and February of 2016, eventually releasing the concert set Smoke + Mirrors Live, recorded in 2015 at a sold-out Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

The group took a well-deserved hiatus in 2016, making only a few sporadic forays into the studio to record three songs for soundtracks: "Not Today" for Me Before You, "Sucker for Pain" for Suicide Squad, and "Levitate" for PassengersImagine Dragons also recorded songs for their third proper album, releasing the lead single "Believer" in January 2017. The album, entitled Evolve, was released that June; as the name suggests, it saw the band continuing to evolve, emphasizing EDM-flavored pop and positive vibes. In January 2018, the band teamed with up with singer Khalid for a mashup of their hits "Thunder" and "Young Dumb & Broke."  [allmusic.com]

 

 

GRACE VANDERWAAL

New York's Grace VanderWaal is a heartfelt pop singer best known for winning the 11th season of NBC's performance competition America's Got Talent. Born in Kansas in 2004, VanderWaal grew up in Suffern, New York, where she first showed interested in music around age three, singing on a wireless microphone. Later, she played saxophone in the school band and, at age 11, taught herself to play ukulele by watching online videos. Soon, she was writing her own songs and performing at local open-mike nights. In 2016, she successfully auditioned for America's Got Talent, performing her original composition "I Don't Know My Name." A popular competitor from the start, VanderWaal ultimately won the series, becoming the second female and second child to do so. She signed to Columbia in 2016 and released her debut EP, Perfectly Imperfect, featuring her single version of "I Don't Know My Name." The album debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200 chart. She headed to the studio with a team of hitmaking composer/producers, including Greg Wells (AdeleKaty Perry) and Sean Douglas(the ChainsmokersDemi Lovato), for her more vibrant full-length debut. Titled Just the Beginning, it hit number 22 in the U.S. and the Top 20 in Canada upon its release in November 2017.  [allmusic.com]
