For the first time, our family experienced a concert together. It was a summer request for Kelsey to see a live show, and Imagine Dragons and Macklemore did not disappoint. The outside venue was a perfect choice for a live, summer show, and the energy was electric. Perhaps we should say, Radioactive?
Macklemore’s set produced flames, guest singers, and fun. His messages about the Same Love and feeling Glorious were powerful. We did not know how Imagine Dragons would top this set and this positive atmosphere, especially after Thrift Shop and Can’t Hold Us. @macklemore
Yet, they did!
As the hits played on and the evening sky showed the beauty of the skyline next to the venue, Kelsey’s energy depleted. Young children around us danced until the show was over, but Kelsey sat out and needed to rest her legs. As Dan Reynolds sang,
“Whatever it takes
Yeah, take me to the top I’m ready for
Whatever it takes
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes,”
We were seated and enjoying the show. For all of Kelsey’s outward and energy and fight, whatever it takes sometimes means just taking that break or leaving early because that’s what it takes.
As Dan’s Follow You states, “I will you follow you way down wherever you may go
I’ll follow you way down to your deepest low
I’ll always be around wherever life takes you
You know I’ll follow you..”
Love and music connects us. It was special to be a part of such a great night with our kids. Imagine Dragons also sing without explicit lyrics, which was an added bonus for the family event.
Thank you to the artists who made this night one to remember.
