Music, Lights, and Tech! Imagine Dragons

The Imagine Dragons performed at The Forum in Los Angeles this Valentine’s Day. I loved the concert. Of course, I loved the concert because Imagine Dragons is one of my current favorite bands. But I loved the concert even more so because of the light and technology show that came with it.

Their “Into the Night” tour has an amazing audio visual component. A big “moon” behind the band displays the lead singer, the audience, and lyrics for the “sing-a-long”. During the song “Monster”, the display transformed frontman Dan Reynolds into a monster. Great animation! The technicolor lights flash across the floor audience, making them a part of the show for those sitting in the arena seats.

A show like this takes a lot of technical design and coordination. If I wasn’t already pumped up for the music, I was definitely enthralled with the overall atmosphere created by the technology. I was seated at the side of the stage, and I had a perfect angle to see the Audio Visual Technician’s computer screen. If only I was close enough to see what they were doing on the computer- it made me wonder what it takes to be an AV Technical Director for concerts.

Kudos to the Technical Director and AV team… oh and Imagine Dragons rocked, too!
