Gig review: Imagine dragons

Imagine dragons

On the 4 of July I had the pleasure to attend my first imagine dragons’ gig in the magnificent venue of Lucca.

As usual my concert didn’t start at 9:30 pm as the ticket told but so much earlier!

I queued for basically 8 hours because It is what you usually do in Italy when you are really interest in a show. I have been waiting for four years to attend a imagine dragons concert and damn if the waiting was reward!

The set list was a mash up between the 3 albums of the band, but a large amount of time was dedicated at the last one probably for promoting it.

The imagine dragons last album called ‘Evolve’ has a new sound which is more pop. While I was queuing I have been talking with the other fans and  I had the feeling that basically anyone missed the indie/pop sound from the earlier works.

This fact didn’t affect that much in the enjoyable of the gig at all.

As any festival, the scenography was not that sophisticated but everything was focused on the music itself.

The band performed a set list which was not that long but they did the same thing basically all around the world.

Set list:

Thunder
Gold
It’s Time
Whatever It Takes
Hear Me
Demons
Walking the Wire
Shots
Amsterdam
I’m So Sorry
I Don’t Know Why
On Top of the World
Believer
Radioactive

The Lucca concert was the second date they did in Italy this year. The first date in Verona was sold out as soon as the tickets came out.

The love that the Italian fans was so huge that the band announced that they will come back soon.

Lucca has a special place in Dan Reynolds heart because his girlfriend came from there and as he said that the crowd went crazy.

The band will perform in Czech Republic, Switzerland and all around the world. You can find the upcoming dates here: https://www.imaginedragonsmusic.com/tour

If you ever attend an imagine dragons let me know if you enjoyed it or you planning to buy tickets for the next show!

Lots of love!
