Throughout the first leg of the tour spanning 17 U.S. shows, Digital Seat Media offered VIP ticket holders an Imagine Dragons VIP card via mobile wallet, unique to their ticketing package, providing access to real-time updates leading up to their concert date and during the event.

The capabilities of Digital Seat don’t just stop at VIP purchased fan activations, and we can’t wait to roll out more full-venue experiences in music, much like we have done in sports.”
