On January 30, 2016, Arēna Rīga will host a sensational new live show from Grammy Award-winning US rock superstars Imagine Dragons. Pre-sale tickets are available for all Positivus registered users in all Biļešu Serviss box offices and online from April 30, 10:00am. Regular tickets go on sale from May 1.
Imagine Dragons create music that’s celebrated for being innovative and groundbreaking, combining various music genres and channeling them into intensely epic rock anthems. Ever since their international debut in 2012, leading global music critics have had nothing but praise for the Nevada-based rockers. After the release of their debut record Night Visions (2012) Billboard named the band "The Breakthrough Band of 2013," with Rolling Stone declaring their single "Radioactive" to be "the biggest rock hit of the year”. The proud winners of the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance, Imagine Dragons have also received the American Music Award for Favourite Alternative Artist, 5 Billboard Awards and a World Music Award, along with numerous other awards across different genres. Renowned for their continuous quality and creativity, Imagine Dragons first entered the Billboard Top 200 charts with their debut album, landing at number two, only to completely dominate the charts with their junior release Smoke + Mirrors (2015), which landed on the top spot of the Billboard Top 200, the UK Albums Chart, as well as Canada’s Albums Chart.
And now, after having played Baltic’s biggest music and arts festival - Positivus Festival a few years ago, Imagine Dragons return to Latvia with even more power and zest. During their breathtaking live shows, the rockers get to really display their full global rockstar potential, setting tightly packed stadiums and music arenas ablaze with raw, untamed energy. Their performances take the audience on a wonderful musical journey, where classical music meets hiphop, folk and electronica. Their music encompasses both heartbreaking ballads and dark epochal motifs, which are further accented by classic guitars, synth rhythms and gigantic drums — one of the band’s trademark sounds.
