Review: Imagine Dragons rattle Tampa's USF Sun Dome with big noise, anthems



It seems these days that unless your band wears sepia vests and suspenders, you have no business crashing the Billboard pop charts.

No one, however, cc'd that message to Imagine Dragons, whose sweeping, dynamic radio rock has made them one of the year's breakout bands, with nary a banjo in tow.

On the strength of three platinum singles — It's Time, Demons and the blockbuster anthem Radioactive, all from their debut album Night Visions — the Vegas quartet has joined bands like Fun. and OneRepublic in an up-with-people coup d'état of America's pop-rock universe.

To quote Radioactive: It's a revolution, I suppose. And the 5,854 fans who packed the University of South Florida Sun Dome to see Imagine Dragons on Tuesday night were eager to play their part.
