    The Smoke and Mirrors Movie did not disappoint!💥🐲

    🎵All I believe
    🎵Is it a dream that comes crashing down on me?
    🎵All that I hope
    🎵Is it just smoke and mirrors?

    I had to first get over a bit of disappointment over practically no one attending the one night only exclusive event of Smoke and Mirrors The Movie. This part of Ohio is very conservative and people tend to hate and avoid anyone or anything different. There is a reason they chose Lima, Ohio as the setting for Glee. The closed-mindedness in the area is real not fiction.

    Well, to make the best of the situation at least I was happy that I could dance in my movie seat and not offend anyone!😃
    I had bought my ticket in advance and there wasn't even an usher to tear the tickets!😂
    The nice lady at the concession stand asked me what movie I was seeing and I told her Imagine Dragons. "Magic dragons?" she asked! I bit my lip to surpress a fit of giggles.🍿
    I wanted to respond with somthing like....Why, yes! It is a classic children's story about a magical dragon from the land of Honali! But I just couldn't say it with a straight face!

    Of course, the movie was perfect and I tried to keep my singing along at an acceptable volume.
    I am fortunate enough to have seen Smoke and Mirrors live but for you firebreathers that missed either the concert or the movie, they promised at the opening of the show to release the DVD on June 16, 2016!
    There were no previews and the movie started just like the live show with the band in siholette behind a massive curtain and lots of fog. The intro to Shots started and the curtain dropped as Dan yelled, "Oh!"
    The lighting in the arena was definatley subdued and the quick camera shots of the alternating band members gave a realistic idea of the frenetic energy of a live show.
    Imagine Dragons definatley turned the energy up a few notches.
    It was the first time ever for them to play Theif live and you could see the emotion welling in Dan's eyes and hear the tears in his voice when he sang.
    Of course time flies when you are having fun and the movie seemed over in no time even though they sang about nineteen songs.
    1. Shots
    2. Trouble
    3. It's Time
    4. Forever Young (Alphaville cover)
    5. Smoke and Mirrors
    6. Polaroid
    7. I'm So Sorry
    8. Theif
    9. Gold
    10. Bleeding Out /Warriors
    11. Demons
    12. Amsterdam/Tiptoe
    13. Hopeless Opus
    14.Release
    15. On Top Of The World
    16. Friction
    17. I Bet My Life
    18. Radioactive
    19. The Fall (Encore)

    The concert was filmed at Air Canada Centere, Toronto, ON, Canada. It was impossible for me to watch the film without flashbacks to the live show that I watched. Thankfully, the firebreathers screaming in the audience did not deafen us quite the way they do at the live performance.
    I remember the film as lyrics and snapshots in my head. The camera holding on a rare quiet moment with Dan standing motionless while gently holding his hand over his heart.
    Dan lying on his back on the stage and serenading the arena with Hopless Opus.
    Wayne's epic guitar solo during Hopeless Opus!
    Ben and Wayne doing their dueling guitar dance during Shots.
    Will Well's electric million dollar smile!
    Platzman's epic drum solo during I'm So Sorry!😎
    Dan leaning against the barrier to reach as many fans as possible and then sprinting to the top of the arena during On Top Of The World , without missing a note or even losing his breath. His path back down occurred in total darkness with only a small glimmer of light from a bodyguard's flashlight but he was back on stage before you could miss him.

    The only thing I think was omitted from the film was Daniel Platzman pausing to take a picture from behind the drums with his cell phone. I looked forward to his Twitter posts all year! I wouldn't have minded some candid backstage moments either.
    The laser show during Radioative is worth waiting for and the seamless show was truly a beautiful production. All too soon, there were thousands of leaves falling from the ceiling during the encore of The Fall. The band only paused to quickly bow and wave and toss guitar picks and drumsticks into the crowd.

    Roll Credits!
    I think this Fangirl is almost speechless! So thankful tonight for Imagine Dragons taking the time and effort to share this special concert with us all over the world!
    Rock On!

    I'm sure that Ben McKee will get "thanked" later for suggesting that Fans bring Wayne mayonnaise!

    Thanks for your report of the Smoke + Mirrors Movie. I want to watch the show. But I live in Hong Kong, no Smoke + Mirrors Movie in Hong Kong

    Haha...... "Magic Dragons" just make me associate of my favorite folk song "Puff the magic Dragon" by Peter Paul & Mary.

    I loved it! We brought The whole family, and after a bucket of popcorn and about six or seven songs in both of my little children fell asleep!!! I know it was right about the time when they played gold because gold is Sedona's favorite song and I remember whispering in her ear, you sure you want to go to sleep because gold is on....

    She said I should've napped...

    I loved it it made me feel closer to the concerts that I've already seen, and I knew every note even which song was coming up next, and of course opening the shots is amazing but my favorite of all I think was gold or hopeless opus, but also the fall was just -wow!!

    Was pretty cool to see some firebreather's I follow on Twitter in the audience too!

    Here is my daughter Sedona supporting TRF!

    I never did get any pictures by a movie poster but they said they didn't get one

    Last but not least, all the kids could not handle such a late night. Obviously they aren't ready for concerts just yet!

    The Movie was AMAZING!!!

    I was sleepy and tired the whole day, but once the film started - I was brought back to life. It was a truly fantastic concert.
    First of all, concert in Toronto was huge comparing to mine in Cardiff, so I had a chance to hear so many songs live, which I didn`t hear before. Smoke and Mirrors was so mysterious, I didn`t expect it to sound THAT good in a live version.
    Then, believe it or not, we didn`t hear Polaroid in Cardiff And now I understand why - this song requires loads of loud singing, and Dan wouldn`t be able to do that with his throat infection probably
    Thief in acoustic version - is my new LOVE. I didn`t expect it to be performed, but it touched my heart so much, I`m totally in love with this song now...
    Bleeding Out almost made me cry.
    Hopeless Opus is just unbelievable!!! Really, me and my friend are slightly mad(in a kind way, of course) on Imagine Dragons for not playing this one in Cardiff. Omg, this song sounded and even looked like it came from another world. Fantastic!
    Release - something that I desperately wanted to hear for a loooong time. This song breaks my heart, and I can relate to it with so many aspects of my life.
    Friction, again, I didn`t expect it to be that good live, but it was extremelly powerful. I wish I could hear this one in Cardiff as well (((

    And, of course, The Fall. Although I`ve heard it during my concert, I can`t resist mentioning it. It is the most beautiful and the most magical ending of the show that I could possibly imagine.

    ***

    The cinema was 70% full with people for Imagine Dragons Movie(I was impressed!). Me and my friend were singing and dancing on our seats all the time, and we were not the only ones! After the concert have finished the whole audience CLAPPED! I had a fantastic time and I must say thank you to Imagine Dragons for giving a huge amount of energy and inspiration again.


    p.s. Remember I`ve told you that since my concert in Cardiff I wasn`t able to watch any live videos, because it was too painful and I always cried? Well, now I`m cured!
    Imagine Dragons saved my life.(c)

    I'm ready for the Fall

    I can't believe I finally couldn't go! I was so excited and I had already planned to go but I got flu I had to stay in bed thinking about how cool it would have been to see the film. All I can do now is wait till the dvd comes out (cause I really hope it finally comes out on dvd)
