Headliner: Imagine Dragons
Imagine Dragons “Radioactive” has broken the all time record for the longest run on the Billboard Hot 100! Keeping you on your feet and fist-pumping to the music, they are selling 15,000 – 20,000 seats a night! Their performance with Kendrick Lamar was the hit of this year’s Grammys, where they also walked away with an award for Best Performance for their 6 time platinum hit “Radioactive.” They have also won an American Music Award, a Premiso 40 Principales Award and a Teen Choice Award.
Reynolds and his bandmates — guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman — independently released three EPs, toured extensively, earning a grass roots following. Then, earlier this year, the band made their major label debut with the release of their “Continued Silence” EP, which included the breakthrough single “It’s Time,” an anthemic foot-stomping track that perfectly encapsulates the band’s unvarnished emotional sound. The song, which reached #3 at Modern Rock radio and #2 at AAA, earned the group a 2012 MTV VMA nomination for “Best Rock Video.” With the groundswell of energy “It’s Time” generated, Imagine Dragons are now preparing for the release of their full-length debut, “Night Visions,” available on Grammy award winning producer Alex Da Kid’s (Eminem, Rihanna) label, KIDinaKORNER.
When the lights go down on the city, Grammy Award Winner Lenny Kravitz will take the stage to get the party started! Lenny has won the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance four years in a row from 1999 to 2002, breaking the record for most wins in that category as well as setting the record for most consecutive wins in one category by a male. He has been nominated for and won other awards, including American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Radio Music Awards, BRIT Awards and Blockbuster Entertainment Awards. On December 1, 2011, Kravitz was made an Officer of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. For fans of the Hunger Games film series – Lenny plays the role of Cinna.
We have some special Rock N Roll tricks for you during the 25th Anniversary “half time” show! You will want to be on the field or somewhere you can watch it after Lenny’s set.
