Imagine Dragons

Thursday night I get a phone call from my co-worker. He apologizes for calling me after work hours and then offers me two free tickets to a private Imagine Drangon's concert. Please! No Need to apologize! Of course I will take them. I didn't know who I would get to come with me, but I had no doubt that I would be able to find someone.

I say private... but the concert filled up the entire energy solutions center. The concert was Vivint's (aka Apx when I used to work there) end of the year party. My co-worker's son is a manager there and had extra tickets, so he gave two to me and two to Lauren. So we got to sit next to each other at the concert which was a lot of fun.

I ended up taking my roommate MacKenzie which was a lot of fun. Love her. Doors opened at 6 and I think things started up at 7. We took the Front Runner (which was awesome) and we ended up getting there around 8. Ended up being perfect because the first hour was just Vivint stuff... we got there RIGHT when Imagine Dragon's started. Part of our ticket was a $8.50 voucher for snacks... which was awesome. We took advantage of that. :)

I only knew a couple of their songs from what I have heard on the radio... but it was a great concert. They are fantastic live! Not familiar with the band? Here is one of their most recent songs.

Imagine Dragons is an American alternative rock band from Las VegasNevada. They gained exposure after the release of their debut studio album, Night Visions, in September 2012. Since then, they have gone on a world tour, and gained exposure on major late night shows like The Tonight Show with Jay LenoJimmy Kimmel Live!and Late Night with Jimmy FallonBillboard named them "The Breakthrough Band of 2013", and Rolling Stonecalled their single "Radioactive" "the biggest rock hit of the year."

In 2008, lead singer Dan Reynolds met drummer Andrew Tolman at Brigham Young University, where they were both students.Tolman recruited longtime high school friend Daniel Wayne "Wing" Sermon, who had recently returned to his hometown of American Fork, Utah from the Berklee College of Music. Tolman later recruited his wife, Brittany Tolman, to sing backup and play keys. Sermon then recruited another Berklee music student, Ben McKee, to join the band, to complete the lineup. The members lived together in Las Vegas, the hometown of Dan Reynolds, where the band recorded and released their first three EPs.

It was such a fun concert. So glad I was given ticket's so that I could go. Glad that my roommate went with me. I had no plans... then was given AWESOME plans! Thanks Paul!

Ok, Apx is crazy. But free concerts? Always good.
