imagine24You won’t have to imagine an Imagine Dragons tour this year.. The “Radioactive” alt rockers just announced a nationwide trek in support of their upcoming seventh studio album “Loom.” stopping at Jones Beach on Friday, Aug 2 - tix:

Imagine Dragons fans! The alt pop-rock legends have not mentioned any supporting acts as of yet. The band has been a bit mum about the entirety of the tour and where they will be headed, but they have announced the North American tour dates for what will likely become a world tour...

While fans will likely hear cuts from their sizable stable of hits — as well as tracks from the new record which is due out June 28 — the band wants their audience to attend shows for the communal experience.. “It’s just a lot of people in a room together realizing they’re not alone in their feelings,” lead singer Dan Reynolds told AP News. “I don’t necessarily need them to feel happy or sad or anything. I just want them to look around them and see that other people are also feeling something.”

Alternative rock band Imagine Dragons, which has never scored a No. 1 single but has sold some 75 million albums primarily on the strength of radio play, lands at Jones Beach as the second stop on its 2024 tour supporting the upcoming album “Loom.”

Imagine Dragons, formed in Las Vegas in the late 2000s, has earned a near-record four RIAA Diamond-certified singles, meaning sales of at least 10 million units apiece, behind only Bruno Mars’ five. “Radioactive” (2012), which reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart to become the band’s first hit, has sold 16 million units, making it also Imagine Dragons’ biggest song to date. It also reaped the band’s only Grammy Award, for best rock performance, out of four nominations total. Its other Diamond records are 2012’s “Demons” (2012) with sales of 11 million; and 2017’s “Believer” and “Thunder,” with 13 million and 12 million, respectively... A longtime quartet consisting of lead singer Dan Reynolds, guitarists Wayne Sermon and Ben McKee and drummer Daniel Platzman, the band as seen on its website’s official photo is a trio not including Platzman. He likewise does not appear with the other three on-screen in the music video for the new album’s first single, “Eyes Closed,” released April 3.

"working on this record was a rollercoaster - just as it always is. some days the songs came from a place a sadness and heartache and others joy and jubilance. loneliness. searching. wanting. anger. love.. the beauty of songwriting is that it has always simply been my journal. it has documented decades of my journey through this strange life. and I’ve been lucky enough to create it with my best friends in a band and have you share it with us.. thank you for letting me feel less alone here on this planet. for singing with me across the globe. reminding me that we all truly are one and in this together. falling and failing. and then getting back up and trying again. and singing about it along the way..
you have given me purpose and a place to sing and dance. you have continually stood by our side now for over a decade. in return we will always be here singing along with you. I always and only hope that it helps you feel less alone. It brings you joy. makes you cry. makes you angry. makes you dance. makes you FEEL something.

may your days be a bit brighter. may the things that loom in the future and distance be a beautiful tapestry of joy and pain that you can hang on your wall to reflect on as life passes us by. may you see this art for what it is - a sunset or a sunrise? the end of something or just the beginning? it all looks the same to me. I love you and will see you on the road soon.
