Imagine Dragons is returning to Provo on Saturday, Feb. 21, to play at the venue where it started its career.
Because Velour has limited seating, tickets to the show are not available for purchase. Instead, tickets are being given away to a few lucky fans.
Provo mayor John Curtis has two tickets he will give randomly to one of the commenters on his blog.
Velour itself has tickets for 10 lucky people who can prove they are the biggest Imagine Dragons fans. Its Facebook page has instructions on how to win:
“HOW TO ENTER:
1) Show us in a 15-second video how you are the world’s biggest Imagine Dragons fan!
2) Follow @velourlive on Instagram and “Like” Velour Live Music Gallery on Facebook
3) Enter one of two ways (Please don’t double-enter) — Instagram: Post your video and tag @velourlive and use the #IMAGINEDRAGONSATVELOUR hashtag (make sure your profile isn’t private so we see your entry!) Facebook: Post to our Facebook Page (post, don’t share — in case your page is private) and use the same hashtag.
4) Entries open through 10AM on Friday 2/20. TEN winners will be announced on Friday at noon!”
The Daily Herald, Provo’s city newspaper, has two tickets as well. Contestants can enter to win on the paper’s Facebook page and get one additional chance to win for each friend who also enters.
The rest of the tickets are being given away by local radio stations. Mayor Curtis’ blog lists 107.9, 99.5, 97.1 and 96.3 as the stations that have tickets but doesn’t say when or what the contests will be. More information will be forthcoming.
For those dying to see Imagine Dragons perform but who cannot to get tickets to this show, the band will be playing at Energy Solutions Arena on July 28 for its Smoke + Mirrors tour. Tickets for that show are currently on sale at http://smithstix.com/events/item/root/imagine-dragons-jul-28.
