A tweet lead to a welcome surprise for the mother and teammates of Maddie Potts, the Chariho High School soccer player who suffered a fatal brain aneurysm during a game last month.

Maddie’s mother Stephanie tweeted Thursday that Maddie was a fan of the band Imagine Dragons and would have wanted to go to their concert next month at Mohegan Sun, and that it would be nice if her teammates now could.

And then Mohegan Sun and Imagine Dragons responded.

They will make it happen, providing tickets for the whole team.

It’s the latest show of support for Maddie’s family and teammates.

“I am overwhelmed by the whole thing and that's the only thing that's really gotten us through any of this is that we all just need to work together,” Stephanie Potts told NBC 10 News on Friday. “The entire state and New England has been tremendous in their support. You just have to find the positives with that and make a god-awful nightmare turn into something positive.”
