📷 An epic photo from Duncan Barnes 🙌

This was taken before the Concert! My Son was so excited to Meet him in person👍👍👍

Just having a nap😂

Felt every song in my heart and soul! Amazing! I love the honesty of their impassioned plea to understand depression and anxiety to help take away the stigma. ❤💚🖤

What a freaking party! Definitely one of the best shows I’ve ever been to (and I’ve been to a few)... They sounded incredibly amazing and as an avid confetti lover, I approve of the amount that was dumped in the Arena tonight 😍

Such an epic show 🤟

Absolutely mental, crazy best night ever. And thankyou Dan for the early mothers day pressie of taking your shirt off😍😆

Absolutely amazing!! And so interactive with the crowd, brilliant show.

I got home and found confetti in all sorts of places on my body 😂 is there such a thing called too much??? Glad I didn’t have to clean up just my body 😉

Great show indeed!

Was an amazing show! Best concert I have ever been too - I’m still singing the songs in my head and enjoying the adrenaline and endorphins that that concert brought! Money well spent for a life changing experience 😍

It was one the best concerts we have seen. Saw the Killers nearly 2 weeks ago and Imagine Dragons were by far the better band Los Vegas band. What a great night.

Best concert in years so talented so electrify so inspiring, took my 10 year old daughter and she absolutely loved it totally could identity with the wise words and love as she has seen me at my worst. Almost made me cry knowing that it’s ok to be me. Thanks for sharing the 💕. The Temper trap were awesome too. Wish we could do it all again. Thanks to all involved you Rock

One of the BEST concerts I have ever been too. So humble and no swearing which is so refreshing. Especially his talk about battle with depression and anxiety was so great!

Absolutely Brilliant, had us laughing hard and singing our hearts out. When he cracked up on stage that was so funny 👻😂 😂😍

Awesome concert! The Temper Trap were great but Imagine Dragons just brought it! The eye candy was rather delicious too, thanks for removing the singlet Dan 😉

Incredible! No words can describe this performance! Dan Reynolds input about depression and anxiety had me in tears. I was so overwhelmed and moved listening to what he had to say with it hitting close to home. Thank you to him (and the band) for using the stage to put out awareness for depression and anxiety and just an amazing amazing night.

Wow! What an amazing show. They are just so talented

That was memorable, Dan sings with emotion and he is an incredible human being trying to help those struggling with depression and anxiety. Will never forget! Thank you Imagine Dragons!!!!

I have seen a lot of concerts in my life, all over Australia and I didn’t know what to expect from Imagine Dragons. Well I was absolutely blown away by Dans vocals and the whole concert. Dans message to the audience was amazing... Please come back soon. 🙏🏻😁

The most amazing concert I have attended. And I've been to a lot of them! The show was amazing from start to finish. First concert I've ever cried at! I'm a sufferer of anxiety and it felt so good feeling so much love in one room 💞 Imagine Dragons are my absolute favourite band in the world and I'm so grateful I had the chance to see then live.

Best concert I have ever been to!! I was literally in tears when Dan and a heart to heart about depression and anxiety. They were so down to earth and really appreciated what they had. Love them so much!!!

What a concert one of the best I’ve been to
