5 Standout Moments From Imagine Dragon’s Evolve World Tour In Singapore

By  January 8, 2018

Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons graced Singapore with a thunderous 105 minutes set at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last night as part of their Evolve World Tour. This would mark the group’s third visit to Singapore – after 2015’s Smoke + Mirrors Tour at the same venue and 2016’s Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix gig.

The spectacle of strobe lights, multi-coloured lasers and LED screen panels at the main stage illuminated frontman Dan Reynolds’s powerful voice so well. No doubt, the spotlight was cast primarily on him but his backing band didn’t seem to mind. However, Reynolds did take some time to appreciate his backing band amidst acoustic songs played at Stage B.

The sold-out strong crowd went through a rollercoaster of emotions, with feel-good tracks like On Top Of The World, empowering tracks like It’s Time and Demons and also sombre tracks like Bleeding Out.  

Here are our 5 standout moments of the night!

 

1.     Dan Reynolds’s Empowering Speeches

In between tracks, Reynolds took the time to shine a light on topics that have in recent years come up for discussion. For a start, he emphasised the importance of equality, spreading peace and love. Before going into Yesterday, he urged everyone to just live in the moment and that’s the most important. Just before Demons, Reynolds shared with the audience his personal experience with depression and empowered the crowd to not be afraid of judgement.

 

 

2.     Yesterday

This track brought the audience closer to the guys of Imagine Dragons. Sometimes, we get caught up with everything that’s happening or we worry too much about our future that we forget to live in the moment. The crowd roared after each line and it was almost like we’re all putting our past behind and only looking straight ahead.

 

3.     Demons

This track was magical for two reasons – what the song stood for and how the crowd lit up the entire arena. In light of recent tragic incidents, raising awareness about depression has become a hot topic. Demons does exactly that, it empowered everyone to not be afraid of judgement and to always speak out. Amidst the performance, the sold-out strong crowd lit up the entire arena with their phones. That was a sight to remember!

 

 

4.     The acoustic set at Stage B

A little bit of a shift from lasers and thumping tunes, the Las Vegas rock band toned things down for a couple of acoustic songs. First of all, they set everyone’s heart racing when they went through the standing pen to get to and fro Stage B. This gave concertgoers at the back a good glimpse of the band as they belted out tunes like Bleeding Out and Amsterdam.

 

5.     Radioactive

Close to eight minutes of a percussion masterpiece. The track begins with the band along with Reynolds playing on various percussion instruments, before the vocals actually start. Of course, the classic deep breath after “breathing in the chemicals” happens and the crowd erupts. Towards the end of the track, the band goes in for another percussion interlude and that marked the end of their third show in Singapore.
