From a city that knows no sleep filled with talented entertainers, the Imagine Dragons, a band out of Las Vegas, emerged to great success in September 2012 after the release of their debut studio album “Night Visions.” The album peaked to number 2 in the weekly Billboard 200 chart and topped the year-end rock ranking for 2013. In just less than two years, the band’s popularity has exploded and now with two 2014 Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year and Best Rock Performance, the Imagine Dragons are only at the start of their amazing journey to rock fame.

Birthed by visionary Lead Singer, Dan Reynolds, the Imagine Dragons started making music in Provo, Utah in 2008 before moving to Las Vegas, Reynold’s hometown. They completed three EP albums before even signing a record deal. The Imagine Dragons got their big break filling in for Train at the Bite of Las Vegas Festival in 2009.

The continued success of their music has been nothing short of amazing. The band was nominated for three American Music Awards in 2013, including their winning award for “Favorite Alternative Rock Artist.” “Radioactive” was the biggest rock hit of the year selling nearly 5.5 million digital copies, making it the third bestselling digital track of 2013.  Selling over 1.8 million copies in the United States alone, “Night Visions” has gone Platinum in eight countries and Gold in other countries.
