The concert drew an impressive crowd of around 60,000 fans, according to the production team. The show kicked off with the band performing their hit song "My Life" in a smoke-filled, dramatic stage setup reminiscent of a studio recording. From there, they transitioned seamlessly into "Believer," with lead singer Dan Reynolds even allowing the audience to sing some of the lyrics in his place, as he maintained an infectious energy throughout.

At the end of the second song, Reynolds unbuttoned his shirt and addressed the crowd with a friendly, "Hello! How's everyone doing?" He asked, "Are you ready to embark on this journey with us tonight? Leave everything behind. Tonight, it's just me and you. Are you with us?" He then launched into the band's hit "It's Time." After the third song, he removed his shirt to the cheers of the audience.
During the exhilarating concert, Reynolds, dedicated the hit song "Thunder" to all the young fans in the audience. He asked a 10-year-old girl in the crowd, "How old are you?" and inquired if this was her first concert. "Just you? What do you think? You can do anything. Achieve anything. You can be on stage, in space, whatever you want. This song is for you!" he said.

As the performance continued, Reynolds shouted to the crowd, "We love you!" and stepped down from the stage, shaking hands with fans who were standing nearby. He even sang a few lines personally for the young fan he had spoken to earlier.
"My heart is full; thank you for being here," Reynolds told the audience again before the band's performance of "Follow You." "Thank you for joining us and singing with us. Some of you have been listening to us for 10 years. We are nothing without you; we love you and hope to give you everything tonight. Here's to another 10 years!"

Reynolds engaged with the audience throughout the night, spreading love abundantly. Before the acoustic performance of "Wrecked," he said: "We ask questions all over the globe. I don't have all the answers." During the performance of "I Bet My Life," he once again descended into the crowd, receiving a bracelet from one of the fans. During "Sharks," large blue balls were thrown into the audience, adding to the energetic atmosphere.

Before the song "Demons," which speaks about "people who feel alone," according to the lead singer, he said: "Talk to someone, with your family, seek help. Your lives are valuable! It doesn't weaken you to talk to the people around you; it makes you stronger! Please stay with us, we need you, your uniqueness. Be with us, stay with us. We care about you!"
The lead singer continued to show warmth to the audience. "Tel Aviv, we love you!" he exclaimed during the hit "Bones," and at the end of the show, he signed autographs for fans and blew a kiss to those present.
