Sin City’s boundary-blurring alt-rockers return to the UK for a one-off stadium show
Following the announce of their Mercury world tour 2022 and in celebration of the release of their latest album, Mercury – Act 1, Imagine Dragons are announcing one UK show on their 2022 world tour. The show will be taking place on Saturday 18 June 2022 at Stadium MK, before continuing onto Europe, concluding the world tour in Paris.
In celebration of the release of their latest album, Mercury – Act 1, Imagine Dragons announce their Mercury World Tour. The 2022 tour kicks off on 28 May for the first two nights at Letnany Airport in Prague, Czech Republic making stops in stadiums and green fields across Europe in Moscow, UK and Berlin before wrapping up in Mönchengladbach, Germany at Sparkassen Park on 14 July. The 2022 summer run will also see the Las Vegas outfit top the bills at some of Europe’s most iconic festivals including I-Days, Rock Werchter, Pinkpop and Lollapalooza Paris.
With 46 million albums and 55 million songs sold globally, as well as 74 billion combined streams, Imagine Dragons remains one of the best-selling rock bands, reinventing the genre with their enormous breakout success across the 2010s. Billboard’s Top 3 rock songs of the decade belonged to the band – ‘Believer’, ‘Thunder’ and ‘Radioactive’. Formed in 2009, Imagine Dragons developed a grassroots following with a series of independently released EPs before making their major label debut on KIDinaKORNER/Interscope with the 2012 EP Continued Silence. Night Visions, their 2012 full-length debut, entered the Billboard 200 at No.2 and the lead-off track ‘Radioactive’ topped Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart, won a Grammy for Best Rock Performance, and achieved RIAA Diamond status.
2015’s Smoke + Mirrors debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200. EVOLVE, which followed in 2017, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and unleashed three No.1 Alternative radio hits: ‘Believer’, the Grammy-nominated ‘Thunder’ and ‘Whatever It Takes’. All three songs were also top 5 hits at Top 40 radio, with ‘Thunder’ rising to the No.1 spot. The band’s fourth album, ORIGINS, debuted atop Billboard’s Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts and lead single ‘Natural’ spent nine weeks at No.1 at alternative radio and set the current record for all-time ‘most spins in a week’ at the format.
Their highly anticipated fifth studio album Mercury – Act 1 was released on 3 September 2021. Teaming up with esteemed producer Rick Rubin and with its title drawing inspiration from the word ‘mercurial’, Mercury – Act 1 is a candid album that abandons metaphorically charged lyrics and instead embraces emotional extremities, holding nothing back. It marks the band’s first album since 2018’s ORIGINS.
‘Follow You’ and ‘Cutthroat’ were the first glimpses into the new record, released simultaneously in March 2021, with the former hitting No.1 at alternative radio and Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart, marking the band’s quickest ascent to the top of those charts. The album’s current single, ‘Wrecked’, is a confessional exploration of grief, written by lead vocalist Dan Reynolds after losing his sister-in-law to cancer in 2019.
