You know how sometimes, you go to a concert, and it completely changes your perspective on the artist or band? This is definitely the case with Imagine Dragons. I mean, I always did like them, Demons and Radioactive, being two of their most well-known songs, are some of my favourite songs too. But the sheer amount of energy each member exemplified throughout the concert seriously made me fall in love with the band.
I always knew how much music could mean to someone, even though I was never one of those people. But yeh, Imagine Dragons is definitely something special. They changed my opinion about some of the songs that I didn’t really like all that much before the concert, Polaroid for example (no hate please). I am sad that they didn’t performs Dreams, Second Chance, and my absolute favourite song of theirs – America. But oh well, win some lose some right?
The crowd was great too, or maybe because I was second row hehe. Dan did come off stage for a bit, and literally everyone lost their shit. I TOUCHED HIS ABS OMG CANNOT STOP FANGIRLING. Seriously though, I may sound like I have my shit together now (not really), but all I could do was fangirl during the entire concert. Dan’s just so full of energy, and the song themselves really got the crowd going.
They’ve only released two albums, but to be honest, there’s not one song that I don’t like. Sure, there’s some I enjoy more than others, but they all have something special. Some of the lyrics though, really resonates with me.
This is one of those concerts that as it finishes, you start appreciating the band so much more, and you know you’ll be at the front row when they return. I seriously can’t wait until they release a new album, and comes back to Melbourne again!
If you haven’t listened to Imagine Dragons, give it a go, some of their songs do take a few rounds for you to get into it, but once you do, trust me, you won’t be able to stop. And if you’re going to a show during their Smoke + Mirrors tour, you’re gonna have an absolute blast!
