Live music is back in full swing, as Fiserv Forum fans enjoyed three gigs on Milwaukee’s biggest stage in just three nights. After great performances from Dua Lipa and Tyler, The Creator, the Imagine Dragons led by Dan Reynolds capped off the three-night stay with a huge, sold-out show.
Confetti and hit records fell from start to finish in the Las Vegas pop rock band’s massive 24-song list and loyal fans sang along throughout the show, whether it was a big single like “Thunder” and “Natural” or one of the band’s B-side tracks from their 2021 LP, “Mercury – Act 1”. If we’re being honest, though, you didn’t have to be a huge Imagine Dragons fan to sing along with the lion’s share of their set, since the group “Radioactive” has been churning out chart-topping tracks for 10 years. .
We could say a lot about the band’s latest world tour, but a picture is worth a thousand words, so we’ll let some of our best shots from the night do the talking.
Check out some of our favorite footage from Imagine Dragons’ Milwaukee stop at the Fiserv Forum on Friday night.
Dan Reynolds is one of the industry’s finest leaders in live performance. Sure, his voice is great and he’s an award-winning songwriter – but the man was sent to this planet to perform live music in sold-out arenas. Imagine Dragons has earned a solid reputation for excellence on stage and Reynolds’ stage presence is the reason for that. It’s no surprise that the Las Vegas native has become a major entertainer.
Why wait for the encore to flood the crowd with confetti? The Imagine Dragons can’t think of a plausible reason. After a video intro to kick off their set, Reynolds emerged at the end of the parade from the massive stage and shortly thereafter the confetti cannons fired to get the performance started on a high. Fans in attendance will find random pieces of confetti for weeks to come.
MØ is a talented singer-songwriter from Denmark who has built up a fan base in the United States and abroad since 2014, but the crowd was generally unfamiliar with the gist of her set. Although she still put on a great show and was chosen to support the tour for a reason, the highlight of her set came when MØ performed her collaboration with Major Lazer and DJ Snake “Lean On”. , one of the biggest tracks of 2015. Of course the crowd was more than familiar with his hit single, as MØ ended his set with a great selection.
Dan Reynolds was expected to land a 10-day deal with the Bucks, showing off his leaps throughout the night as he sprinted down the tour’s huge catwalk.
Although Reynolds is the star of the show, he’s nothing without the band behind him. And while lead guitarist Wayne Sermon wasn’t one of the founding members, he’s been a part of the Imagine Dragons since long before fame and records. Reynolds showed his appreciation to his longtime bandmate and friend at the start of the performance as he got down on all fours to bow to the talented musician.
While Dua Lipa and Tyler, The Creator, both brought thousands of fans to the Fiserv Forum for their headlining performance, Imagine Dragons capped the three consecutive gigs with the only sold-out show. Each gig was great on its own, but it was only fitting that the stint would end with the biggest gig at Fiserv in quite some time.
