Overview: 'Smoke + Mirrors Live' is a multi-sensory production, but equally an intimate fan experience as the crowd sing along word-for-word with the band.

DVD Verdict: For those not in the know, here's what you should know about the highly inspiring musicians known as Imagine Dragons. The American band hail from Las Vegas, Nevada and have a line-up that consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.
The band gained exposure following the release of their debut studio album, Night Visions (2012) and first single 'It's Time'. According to Billboard, Imagine Dragons topped the year-end rock rankings for 2013; Billboard named them "The Breakthrough Band of 2013", and Rolling Stone named their single 'Radioactive' "the biggest rock hit of the year".
MTV also called them "the year's biggest breakout band". Night Visions peaked at number two on the weekly Billboard 200 and UK Albums Chart. The band's second studio album Smoke + Mirrors reached number one on the Billboard 200, Canadian Albums Chart, and UK Albums Chart.
