One of the biggest acts in all of today's rock and roll music scene has announced that they are set to play their biggest show in the Detroit area ever. Imagine Dragons will be making a highly-anticipated stop at the Palace of Auburn Hills this summer on June 23.
The Las Vegas musical group has been one of the hottest groups over the last few years since they climbed all the way to the top of the charts with their 2012 debut album, Night Visions. Since then, the band has become one of the most in-demand acts in all of music, headlining a number of music festivals across the country and working alongside many other popular artists.
Imagine Dragons newest release, their sophomore effort, will be released on Feb. 17 and is titled Smoke + Mirrors. Tickets for the Detroit show at the Palace will go on sale the same day that the new album is released. As of right now, ticket prices have yet to be announced.
The Detroit show is just one in a massive new tour to promote the new record by the band. This time around, many of the venues that Imagine Dragons will be playing at are considerably larger than many of those that they have played in the past. In the Detroit area, the last show the group played was at the Meadow Brook Music Festival at the much smaller venue in Rochester Hills. That was also more than a year ago back in September of 2013. The group has arguably grown much more popular since then.
The "Smoke + Mirrors Tour" will kick off in the month of June in the northwest, starting out in Portland, Oregon on June 3 and making its way throughout North America until the final show in Boise, Idaho on August 1. For the duration of the tour, it has also been announced that Metric and Halsey will open for Imagine Dragons on each of their individual tour dates, including the Detroit show.
Almost immediately after the group had stopped touring to promote Night Visions near the end of 2013, the band announced that their new focus would shift from touring to the completion of their new album, which they will deliver with Smoke + Mirrors. For the record, lead singer, guitarist, and front man, Dan Reynolds, told the media that though the demand for a new album was high, he would not release anything until he felt that the album was truly done.
