Imagine Dragons fans, you will be glad to know that your favorite band is already returning to the Seattle area on their highly anticipated Smoke and Mirrors tour in 2015. If you were not able to catch Imagine Dragons during their last trip to Seattle for their Deck the Hall Ball appearance in December 2014, then be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible, to this upcoming concert at the Tacoma Dome on July 31, which will also feature opening acts Metric and Halsey. The Smoke and Mirrors Tour officially starts in June 2015 in Portland, Oregon, and is scheduled to visit various locations in North America, including cities in both the United States and Canada, through August 1.
Smoke and Mirrors is Imagine Dragons second studio album and was just released in February 2015 via Interscope Records and producer Alexander Grant's KIDinaKORNER label. Much like the success of the band's debut album, Smoke and Mirrors reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Canadian Albums Chart and UK Albums Chart. To date, it has sold more than 200,000 units and received positive ratings from Rolling Stone, USA Today, All Music, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly and The Daily Telegraph. So far, Imagine Dragons has won a Grammy Award, five Billboard Music Awards, two American Music Awards, a World Music Award and a Premios 40 Principales Award.
Opening rock band Metric first formed in 1998 and is from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The band's line-up includes Emily Haines on lead vocals, guitar, synthesizers, tambourine, piano and harmonica; James Shaw on backing vocals, lead and rhythm guitars, theremin and synthesizers; Joshua Winstead on backing vocals, bass guitar and synthesizers; and Joules Scott-Key on drums and additional percussion instruments. To date, Metric has released seven albums, with its latest, Synthetica, coming out in 2012.
Additional opening act Halsey is a 19-year-old female pop artist named Ashley Frangipane from New York. She has been compared to similar acts including Lorde and Chvrches, with her darker, electro-pop sound. Halsey is currently signed with the Astralwerks label, a division of Capitol Records. Her debut EP (extended play) album called Room 93 came out in October 2014.
