Let me start by saying by tastes in music have evolved from going to seeing Boyzone, ( i love you Ronan banner in tow) to Girls Aloud in my late teens ( i still have slight soft spot for Love Machine) Calvin Harris and Tiesto (i’m sorry but it was amazing and i raved away) to now Imagine Dragons.
Was never really into them that much then i heard a couple of songs off their new album Evolve and was hooked, so much that i stole my brother in laws ticket and made my sister take me lol. He wasn’t fussed just to clarify.
The lead up to the concert on Sunday was a little nerve wracking. Central and East coast of Scotland got hit by the “beast from the east” weather front and the snow was atrocious, it was so deep and caused pandemonium every where, you’d think that we’d never seen snow before, deliveries weren’t making it to the shops and they were running out of bread and milk! People were panic buying the most random items, if nows the time for 35 frozen pizzas and 6 bags of frozen chips in your freezer then who am i to judge.
This was my sisters house. Where i live had virtually no snow, (hooray) but i had to make it to my sisters on Sunday.
The snow started on Wednesday and by Sunday it was still all there but the roads were clear and i made it.
We were staying in Glasgow after the concert and getting to Glasgow was met with some obstacles, our train broke down and we were left sitting for ages! When we got going again we shlepped through the snow and slush to get to our hotel. It was tempting to just stay in the room lol but no Imagine Dragons awaited!
We went for dinner at a bar called Striphouse where we had a couple of cocktails and we both went for burger and fries.
Striphouse burger and fries
The burger wasn’t great, but the cocktails and the tin cup my sweet potato fries came in were great. my idea of stealing the cup was frowned upon. Pfft.
Now onto the concert, it was just amazing, Dan Reynolds is great live, they started with I don’t know why and ended with Radioactive. In the middle they did an acoustic set where they also sung a Scottish classic, 500 miles by the Proclaimers! He sung it to perfection and the crowd went wild!
I wish i could put my videos up but they were just too large to send through and i’m not sure how else to link them up! Here’s a video from You tube someone else so kindly took:
Imagine Dragons 500 miles
So here are a couple of photos:
I honestly can’t recommend going to see them enough, if you get the chance please go you won’t regret it. There were so many people there of all ages, i was surprised to see so many kids there.
