Imagine Dragons: Security & Traffic Update

If you’re coming to see Imagine Dragons on Friday night, please give this a quick read. Your safety is our priority.

Your safety at our events is our priority and our teams will continue to remain vigilant. The national threat level remains at severe and advice from the government is to “be alert, not alarmed”. Those attending our events should also be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to our security staff or police. We have a number of security measures in place and will continue to review these.

No food or drink will be allowed into the arena itself and all bags will be searched.  Bags larger than a small laptop bag or handbag will not be allowed into the Barclaycard Arena. 

You should arrive as early as possible and allow more time for security checks when arriving at the venue.

Remember, be alert, not alarmed.

Traffic Update

Now, the show takes place on a Friday night which is typically always a busy night in Birmingham anyway. Add factors such as the arrival of the German Market and the road closures around the Paradise Forum redevelopment, plus thousands of Imagine Dragons fans then you’re going to get a lot of traffic.

For more information on routes and road closures surrounding the city, check this out here. Please take this into consideration when planning your journey.
