The story of TRF begins simply in 2011 when 16-year-old Tyler Robinson, then in treatment of Rhabdomyosarcoma, connected with Imagine Dragons at a very small concert in Provo, Utah, before Imagine Dragons even signed to a record label. Prior to attending the concert, the band learned of Tyler from a message sent to them by Tyler’s brother. The band dedicated a song that night to Tyler, who was in the audience, and a lasting friendship was born.
Tyler gained his angel wings on March 4, 2013. The following month, Imagine Dragons teamed up with the Robinson family and the Tyler Robinson Foundation was born. Tyler’s inspiring life and positive example as he fought through several bouts with cancer, forever changed the perspective of the band.
Take a peek at a new story about the first time Imagine Dragons and Tyler Robinson met at a small club in Provo, Utah.
