Imagine Dragons rocked a packed TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota Saturday night.

The Grammy Award-winning band opened the show with the song "Fallen." The Dragons also played their hugely popular "Radioactive."

The band threw the fans a curveball with a rendition of "Take me out to the ballgame." The concert was put together by Major League Baseball as a part of several days of All-Star Week festivities.

The Las Vegas foursome is no stranger to the Twin Cities.

Just two years ago, before the band made it big, it played the Triple Rock Social Club on Minneapolis' West Bank followed by a set at the Basilica Block Party. Saturday was Imagine Dragon's sixth Twin Cities appearance since April 2012.

The band had to travel quite a ways to get to Minneapolis. It performed in Scotland just 24 hours prior to Saturday's event.

Minneapolis hip-hop band Atmosphere opened the night's music.

More than 25,000 free tickets were given away last month. The free ticket giveaway for the concert was not without controversy.

Many fans complained after tickets were made available to the general public. Some of those tickets went to fans, but some went to ticket brokers who turned around and sold them on Craigslist for a big profit. Tickets later sold for $100-240.
