Fans packed the Brooklyn Bowl music venue in Nashville, Tennessee on March 7th, 2o23 as Theory of a Deadman and Saint Asonia bring the Rock Resurrection Tour to music city. This sold out show had fans wrapped around the building as they anxiously await the night ahead. Just walking by the venue you could hear fans talking about their favorite albums, songs, and how many times they have been able to see Theory live. One thing if for sure, the excitement could be felt for miles.
Rock band, Saint Asonia opened up the night with intense energy. Formed in 2015 this Canadian- American band graced fans with a ten song performance, including a few surprise hits. Vocalist, Adam Gontier, previously in the band Three Days Grace, provided electric stage presence, and quickly had the crowd on their feet, his powerful voice and undeniable love for performing left fans with chills. Saint Asonia has previously released two studio albums, and during the 45 minute set performed popular hits, and cover songs including “I Hate Everything About You,” “Never Too Late,” and closed out with “ Let Me Live My Life.” Once this performance was complete Brooklyn Bowl was buzzing with fans ready to see the headliner.
Canadian rock band Theory of a Deadman opened the night with new hit “Dinosaur” and fans were immediately screaming with joy. Vocalist, Tyler Connolly played his chromed out telecaster with great attention to detail, not missing a single note, and interacted with the crowd during the entire set. At one point during the night the band began playing Garth Brooks hit “Friends in Low Places,” while stating that Garth was going to come out to perform, once the crowd began cheering Connolly stated, “That joke never gets old” which left fans wiping tears of laughter. This four piece band is no stranger to live shows since forming in 1999 however, you could still feel the passion as they played, and the love for their craft was very evident. The showmanship was like no other with their tasteful solos and intense riffs, it made for a wonderful night in music city. During their 14 song set they played all their popular hits from several different albums, including songs “Not Meant to Be,” “Hate My Life,” and “Santa Monica,” before closing out with fan favorites “RX” and “Bad Girlfriend.” With a new album titled, Dinosaur, releasing March 17th its safe to say we have not seen the last of Theory. Although we hate the night had to end, Theory left us ready to rock the next time they come around.
