Utah fans of Imagine Dragons have a reason to feel on top of the world, since the band will be playing at The Velour in Provo on Feb. 21 as part of the new Destination Dragons tour, presented by Southwest Airlines.

During this short tour, the band will visit Los Angeles, Provo, Las Vegas and Atlanta.

“Utah is the source of inspiration for the organic songwriting that is the backbone of the band,” the Destination Dragons website said. “Home sweet home at Velour in Provo is our second stop.”

The band got its major start in Provo when it won BYU’s Battle of the Bands as well as The Velour’s Battle of the Bands and “Utah Valley University’s Got Talent” in 2008.

Since the release of the band’s album Night Visions in 2012, the band has received a Grammy for Best Rock Performance for its song “Radioactive” and has played 130 headlined tour dates and 50 festivals around the world, according to its website. In February 2014, “Radioactive” broke  the Billboard Hot 100 record for longest chart life, beating out Jason Mraz’s record for “I’m Yours,” which was on the chart for 76 weeks, according to Billboard.com. The song would leave the list in May 2014, after spending 87 weeks on the chart. 

Details about how to purchase tickets for these concerts will become available on the Destination Dragons website.
