Imagine Dragon fans, get ready. The American rock band is coming to Key Arena in Seattle later tonight. Unfortunately, the concert is already sold out, so fans will have to be creative if they want to find a way to see Imagine Dragons in concert. I don’t know about everyone else, but for me, this seems to happen a lot. The names of bands and artists coming to Seattle don’t come up until a few weeks or days before the concert and at that point it’s much too late to get tickets at a reasonable price. If this struggle is real for you, fear not. I’m about to give you fair warning about
the major concerts happening here in Seattle this year. If you’re interested in seeing Miley Cyrus perform live you’ll get your chance at the Tacoma Dome on February 16. That might even make a great Valentine’s date for avid Miley fans. At the end of February The Head and the Heart will be performing at the Paramount Theater in downtown Seattle. The Head and the Heart originated from Seattle, so if you want a chance to see a local band who’s become successful and has great music, this is a good concert to check out. In March, Seattle will be visited by new artist Lorde and long-time performer ZZ Top. If neither of those names excite you, Kings of Leon will also be making an appearance at the Key Arena on March 28. If spring quarter has you in a rut, take a study break and visit Young the Giant, Switchfoot, Franz Ferdinand, The 1975 or Bastille at the Showbox. Or wait until April 23 and find tickets to see English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding at the Paramount. In May, Ingrid Michaelson will be visiting the Paramount. And of course, May brings with it Sasquatch, or the first part, anyway. If you haven’t heard of Sasquatch then don’t worry, you’ll see plenty of Sasquatch publicity from The Spectator if you need to learn more. If you need something really grand to look forward to at the end of the school year, get tickets to see famous Lady Gaga at Key Arena on May 31. What better way to end the year than to just dance at what will surely be one of the biggest concerts of the year.
