    Highlights from Imagine Dragons at Velour

    My heart went out to Corey Fox and Dan Reynolds last night. Dan practically crawled to his seat on stage and wore sunglasses and a hooded sweatshirt covering most of his face, explaining that he had an excruciating migraine. During a bad migraine talking and singing are almost unbearable but just like the night last year when he fell an broke his hand Dan continued on in spite of his personal pain.
    "Hello, hello." Dan began. "First and foremost, I just wanted to say a couple of things. First of all, I woke up today and I have a migraine. I just don't want everybody to say, 'Look at this, like, he goes away for a while and comes back with sunglasses and a hoodie.' O.K? I just wanted to get that out of the way."
    "You've changed!" Wayne interjected.
    "And then,we're gonna play It's Time!" Dan laughed.
    Dan continued, "I do,want to say that this is a very special year. We have this whole year blocked out for the band. We've been touring, I don't know, for the last five to six years straight. We said this year we're going to do nothing, no matter what comes up. However, we found out about what's going on with Corey-who of course shared that with nobody because he's never looking to put attention on himself. He's always looked to put attention on others and in fact, Corey didn't even tell us. It was one of his friends who reached out and told us what he was going through."
    "Corey for years has stood in the shadows and helped artists fulfill their dreams. And, I can tell you 100% we would not be a band...nor only would we not be a band, I don't know what we would be doing with our lives."
    "It would be scary!" Wayne called out from the seat next to Dan's.
    "Yes, scary!" Dan echoed and continued, "This band started because Corey Fox had a vision to create an incredible and inspiring venue for artists to aspire to be able to play at. It was not just a place you could roll up to. You had to cultivate your talents to a level that he believed in you and he brought you in. He's a mentor to ever single artist here and all around him. We'll go to California and people will say, 'That's like that legendary venue in Utah!' This place exists because of Corey."
    "Tonight is about giving back to Corey and helping somebody-like I said would never ask for help. That being said, every single person in here paid way too much money for a show to come and support Corey. Every dime goes towards him and that's an incredible thing. A big thank you is to you guys for coming out here for literally saving someone's life by coming out here and supporting music and supporting Corey and supporting us through all these years. And, uh, we just want to say thank you. Thank you very much for being here tonight." (Lots of cheering and clapping from the audience)
    "And now..."Dan started.
    "And now what?" Wayne asked while strumming his guitar an laughing."Is everybody in tune...kind of?"
    Dan reached over and put his hand on Wayne's shoulder, "Wayne cut his hair as you can tell. This is Wayne. I know you were confused who he is, but he's Wayne.
    "I just needed a change, you know, somethings you just need a change," Wayne laughed again. Dan then put his other hand on Ben's shoulder and said, "This is Ben McKee right here. Ben is probably the best human being I know. Thank God."
    Ben shook his head, "You need to meet some me better people!" he quipped. Dan continued the introductions without introducing himself, "And over here, by the way tonight we're just kinda doing things differently. You know what I mean? We're just here. This is about Corey tonight, we're just hanging out, pardon the relaxed theme and the hoodie. Like I said, this is Daniel Platzman over here. Now we're going to play some music. Please sing along as much as possible-I would love it. If you don't, that's okay. I hate it when I go to concerts and they're like sing along!
    And, I just want to enjoy it! So do whatever you want"

    OMG!!! THANK YOU!!! Now I know why he was wearing sunglasses and a hoodie.... I feel so bad for him. What a great night and for such a great cause. I am so proud of them for the things they do!
