Backstage photography from the Manchester leg (November 13) of the Imagine Dragons European tour in 2015.
On December 16, 2014, Imagine Dragons announced that their second album Smoke + Mirrors would be released on February 17, 2015 and the tour was announced shortly later.
Imagine Dragons won two American Music Awards for Favorite Alternative Artist, a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance, five Billboard Music Awards, and a World Music Award. In May 2014, the band was nominated for a total of fourteen different Billboard Music Awards, including Top Artist of the Year and a Milestone Award, recognizing innovation and creativity of different artists across different genres.
Most well-known for hits such as Radioactive, Demons and I Bet My Life, the band has experienced an explosive rise into the spotlight following the 2012 release of their Grammy Award winning debut album Night Visions. To put a label on the group, consisting Dan Reynolds (vocals), Waybe Sermon (guitar) Ben McKee (bass) and Daniel Platzman (drums), would be a daunting task. When asked about influences, you'll hear the members naming the likes of The Beatles, Ben E. King, Willie Nelson and other pop/rock icons. Their discography lends itself to a perhaps more complicated line-up, as you'll hear blends of rock, pop, country, and electronics - but also folk, hiphop, r&b and metal and much more. But besides the music, Imagine Dragons is also known and loved for the incredibly energetic live shows, as well as their down to earth personalities and dedication to their craft.

'I started photography back in November of 2007. I had a little Fuji Bridge camera, which was a great camera from what I remember. So I just started taking photographs down at the local skate park and it basically spiraled out of control from there.' Louis Lander Deacon
