Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons coming to Tampa

Imagine Dragons is finally coming back to Tampa.

The Las Vegas rockers behind huge hits It's Time and Radioactive are coming to the USF Sun Dome in Tampa on Sept. 24, the venue announced Monday. Tickets are $34.50-$39.50, and they go on sale Friday.

It's a big deal for a number of reasons. Imagine Dragons' set at last year's 97X Backyard BBQ made Soundcheck's list of 2012's best concerts not just once, but twice. Then they played a sold-out show at the Ritz Ybor alongside Awolnation. And they were all set to be one of the biggest acts at last year's 97X Next Big Thing ... that is, before singer Dan Reynolds came down with a throat infection and had to cancel.

Since then, Imagine Dragons have played a couple of sold-out shows in Orlando, but this will mark their long-awaited return to Tampa Bay. The fact that they're playing the Sun Dome confirms what we suspected all along: This was an arena band just waiting to happen.
