CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is the biggest tech event in the world, and every time it comes to Las Vegas, attendees flock to see the latest and coolest innovations. These include the newest robots, TVs, drones, VR tech, and more. Audio is also an important part of the convention, and Dolby teamed up with Imagine Dragons for a first-ever live concert in Dolby Atmos at Dolby Live. It was a fun-filled and intimate night that showcased exceptional audio inside an indoor amphitheater that seats over 6,000.

The private live performance was held at Dolby Live at Park MGM on January 5, 2023. It benefitted local charities and Imagine Dragon’s nonprofit organization, Tyler Robinson Foundation (TRF), which supports families dealing with a pediatric cancer diagnosis. Tickets were given away to the organization’s team members, volunteers, and people that are helped by it.

Dolby Live is a venue that can seat over 6,400 people, and since it’s not a huge stadium that can seat over 40,000 audience members, it gives the company more control to produce quality audio. With Imagine Dragons utilizing Dolby Atmos, it was a treat for the ears.

Imagine Dragons performed hits such as “Believer,” “It’s Time,” “I’m So Sorry,” “Bones,” “Enemy,” “Thunder,” “Radioactive,” “Demons,” and more. Thanks to the venue and Dolby Atmos, guests could hear lead vocalist Dan Reynold’s powerful voice, lead guitarist Wayne Sermon’s boomy sound, Ben McKee’s complementary bass, and drummer Daniel Platzman’s monstrous beats. Dan would have uplifting speeches throughout the performance, exuding positive energy.

Each guest was given an LED wristband, and these shined bright during the concert. There was also confetti, laser shows, fireworks, etc, all dazzling the crowd. The stage was great for the frontman to get closer to the fans, and they went wild. Near the end, Wayne Sermon stood on top of a raising platform to bust out his solo in the middle of the ecstatic audience.

It was a large crowd, but since it was held at Dolby Live, it was more intimate compared to the band’s bigger concerts at big stadiums and large festivals. Overall it was a thunderous performance from Imagine Dragons as they performed in their home city of Las Vegas.
