Imagine Dragons has Previously Headlined the Event Twice
Dan Reynolds is the lead singer of the pop rock group, which also includes guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman. The group has performed at Summerfest’s Amphitheater twice before, in 2013 and 2018.
Their first performance at the event in 2013 is still regarded as a historic occasion since, just before the band took the stage, long lines of fans could be seen extending deep into the streets outside the arena. The gathering was so huge that security had to temporarily open the gates to let people in for fifteen minutes.
As a result, 5000–7000 individuals are said to have shown up without tickets. More than 117,000 people, according to Milwaukee police estimates, attended the performance that evening.
Regarding AJR, the group has performed at Summerfest before. The group, which consists of the Met brothers (Adam, Jack, and Ryan), gave a performance at this year’s festival in the American Family Insurance Amphitheater. AJR performed a special act for an audience of about 11,000 people with a creative and dramatic stage presentation.
