Imagine Dragons: Smoke + Mirrors tour.
Save the date! The Imagine Dragons will be around the corner from Montclair at the end of the month! What better way to spend summer nights than dancing and singing along with your favorite band at a concert? Music speaks to the soul and in a town filled with vibrant life and many different styles of sound, Montclair residents have many upcoming shows to look forward to. The beauty of the location in Montclair is that New York City is roughly 20 miles away, and the Prudential Center is located only a quick two towns over. One show people not only in Montclair but all booked cities have been anticipating is the Imagine Dragons Smoke + Mirrors tour. They’ll be at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. on June 29 at 7:30 p.m.
Imagine Dragons is a popular band that has won over the hearts of millions with songs like “Demons,” “I bet my life” and “Radioactive.” Their catchy soft-rock vibe has swept over the nation, gaining many loyal fans. Like all other artists and bands, their songs tell special stories and hold unique meaning. That being said, the lyrics are not simply the same old fairytale love story gone wrong. For example, their popular song “It’s Time” can be interpreted in a number of ways, and that is the point; any way it helps a listener is a win for the musicians. Most obvious, the lyrics in “It’s Time” represent hitting rock bottom and rebuilding life into what you want it to be and where you want it to go.
In an interview between the Huffington Post and Dan Reynolds (frontman to Imagine Dragons) the musician said, “I hate it when artists say what it exactly means. It really compartmentalizes it. I always like to leave art and music open to interpretation.” Music is a unique and expressive art form for every talent. Imagine Dragons have not gone the express route, releasing provocative music for top hits, but rather taken risks and making music that separates them from the crowd, which is an achievement in itself.
Their stop in Newark is awaited by thousands of fans. The Smoke + Mirrors tour tickets begin at very reasonable prices, starting at $39.95; a bargain for the esteemed performance the band puts on for their fans of all ages. Imagine Dragons will not be back in our area for a while, so take the opportunity now to see them live or forever wish you had witnessed the rockstars in action.
