On March 2, Imagine Dragons fans will have the opportunity to see the band’s upcoming live concert and documentary in movie theaters nationwide, ahead of the DVD release. The show was filmed last July 4 in Toronto features the band’s thunderous live show and some behind-the-scenes moments. Watch the trailer above.
Frontman Dan Reynolds told Billboard that knowing the cameras were rolling made it a special night. “I remember walking offstage being very happy, like knowing this was a good night to capture and there was a special energy in the room,” he said. “I just hoped that it would translate on film, and I think it really captures it.”
The film will be the last time fans will get to see Imagine Dragons for a while. The band is currently taking some much-needed time off. Reynolds explained, “We haven’t stopped in, like, six years, so we’ve forced ourselves to at least take a year off.” He added that the guys are going to “try to learn how to be a normal” and “catch up with family, reconnect with friends and be social human beings and normal people again.”
Reynolds also noted, “I just think we need a break from Imagine Dragons and I think the world needs a break from Imagine Dragons, and I don’t blame them. It’ll be good to just take some time off and see where our heads are.”
