    Some highlights from the Imagine Dragons Question and Answer session.

    🎵Who knows how long
    🎵I've been awake now?
    🎵The shadows on my wall don't sleep
    🎵They keep calling me
    🎵Beckoning....
    🎵Who knows what's right?
    🎵The lines keep getting thinner
    🎵My age has never made me wise
    🎵But I keep pushing on and and on and on

    Imagine Dragons
    Nothing Left to Say

    The day of the Smoke and Mirrors Movie, Imagine Dragons tweeted...

    "U were expecting tricks and secrets, but U should know better than to expect the unexpectable ( new word)"

    After the movie in Regal Villiage Square in Las Vegas Dan Reynolds and Daniel Platzman held a question and answer session. Poor Arrow was tired literally bored to tears. Dan's finished the session with her cuddled in his arms. They ultimately ended the session because she said she wanted to go home. I'm sure it was past her bedtime but she sure was adorable in her pretty pink dress. Thank you to the Firebreather who posted the session on Periscope! I wasn't able to transcribe the entire chat but did try and capture most of the highlights.

    One lucky Firebreather, named Paris, was celebrating her 14th birthday that night so the entire theatre sang Happy Birthday to her and she got hugs from Dan and Platz.

    One young fan said that after seeing Imagine Dragons in concert, he knew what he wanted to be when he grew up.

    Another fan thanked the band. "I wanted to say thank you for being great examples. You guys are really humble and kind. And there's not enough of that today especially when it comes to being famous. You can tell your music really speaks and is not just about your ego. So I want to thank you for that because it's important to teach the world to be that way. You guys are amazing. Without you, where would all these people be? "
    She got a huge round of applause.

    They were asked about stage fright and Platzman said, " I always get a little anxious before I go on stage. But once I'm out there it's for all of us one of the most comfortable places you could put us is onstage. It's counterintuitive. I don't know why with all the lights and people staring at you? But put instruments in front of us and there's something natural about that for us.
    Dan interjected, "I'm uncomfortable right now! We just do it!"

    They were asked about their favorite books and Dan named Treason by Orson Scott Card and said that he had read it three times. Platzman named two books by Michael Lewis, The Big Short and Moneyball. He remarked that they were better than the movie version.

    Dan talked about his musical heroes. He said he listened to 90's grunge rock, Tupac and Nirvana. But he really likes singer/songwriters like Billy Joel, Paul Simon and Harry Nelson. "I love a good melody. To me melody is everything like Simon and Garfunkel."

    They asked Dan what his favorite thing was about having a daughter. He obviosly squirmed to find the right words. "She's just...like... the best thing ever. It's inexplainable. It's funny because once you have a kid you're like...this is so impossibly hard! It's so much harder than anybody tells you. You know? But you just love them on a level you can't put into words. It's next level." ( looking at his wife in the audience, he then back pedals a bit) "Well, except with your wife...(more verbal squirming)...it's equal. But it's next level."

    Dan completed the interview with Arrow nestled in his arms. "Believe in yourself. Everybody has a voice. When I was young my brothers told me I had a Cookie Monster voice." (He then changed that to "some" of my brothers because Mac Reynolds was standing directly next to him.)
    "And it honestly made me really shy and I almost didn't sing because of that. Then one day I was like, fine! Better to have a Cookie Monster voice than like, a silky voice like everyone else in the world!"

    "If you believe in yourself then people will believe in you!" Dan finished.
    Again, the room broke out in thunderous applause.

    I hope Imagine Dragons will share with us the total number of tickets sold? Not holding my breath though. I'd surely pass out while waiting!
