Imagine Dragons Concert
There is something special about a date where you know you need to carb load as much as you can at dinner for your big run the next day, and you are going to see your current favorite band in one night. I think I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face or take the extra spring out of my step even if I wanted to.
We went to dinner before the concert at one of the greatest restaurants in Arizona, Oregano’s. It’s some seriously amazing Italian food, and there’s always at least a 30 minute wait despite the fact they’ve opened like 5 new ones in the East Valley just this year. Seriously the best place to carb load!
Not to mention portions are huge, so if you’re feeling cheap a $12 dish will definitely feed two, often with leftovers. Our favorite is Alfredo the Dark- Alfredo with some polano pepper in it for a slight kick. Whatever you do, get the chicken on top of it. It’s to die for!
After dinner we blasted the Imagine Dragon’s album in the car as we psyched ourselves up to head to the Marquee theater in Tempe. It was seriously hard to contain myself at this point and there were likely some giddy squeals as we walked to pick up our tickets. Frisking me twice didn’t even get me down!
Brace yourself, it was hard not to take pictures since every song had cool lighting and effects to help with their overall feel and album message. I hope you can get even a small idea of how sweet each song was visually as well as audibly, even though all photography happened on phones, with an ever-moving lead singer, and a whole lot of dancing was going on!
There is just something about live music that you can never experience in the recorded versions. We had such an amazing time at this concert and are excited we’ll get to tell our kids someday that we went to the very first headlining concert of this band I have no doubt will be completely legen……wait for it…..dary in the future.
And if the first movie wasn’t enough, here’s a few more:

I love Imagine Dragons! I can't wait until I get to go to their concert next month!!
I was going to say the same exact thing as Katie — the Alfredo the Dark pasta AND that garlic cheesy bread are my absolute favorite things to get at Oregano's (which is probably my favorite restaurant ever!!).
Alfredo the Dark (with chicken) is my absolute favorite dish at Oregano's! Oh man, now I really want some.
How fun! It looks like you guys do a lot of really fun date nights! So cute. I am excited for Friday! I love meeting other Az bloggers!! Excited to go through your blog some more! YOu two are adorable. -Brittany
That is SO cool that you went their their concert! I love Imagine Dragons! So last weekend when Scott and I were out on our date, we drove past the Hard Rock Hotel which had a big billboard for an Imagine Dragons concert – February 9th. It was that very night! I was so bummed that I didn't know about this earlier! I so would have gotten tickets. Oh well!
