The Rock Resurrection Tour Brought a Powerful Night of Rock Music to Huntsville, Alabama


The Rock Resurrection Tour from Skillet and Theory of a Dead Man made its way to Huntsville, AL on November 30th, featuring Saint Asonia. This trio of bands delivered an unforgettable night of hard-hitting music, making it one of the loudest events in Huntsville this year. With a 20-year catalog of music, the lineup kept the audience on their toes and captivated throughout the evening.

Saint Asonia, led by frontman Adam Gontier, kicked off the night with three powerful songs from their catalog, including “Better Place,” “Above it All,” and “Devastate.” They then treated the crowd to hits from Gontier’s past, such as Three Days Grace’s “Never Too Late” and “I Hate Everything About You.” The performance, which included the song “I Don’t Care” featuring Adam’s guest appearance with Apocalyptica, gained new fans and delighted existing ones.

Following Saint Asonia, local favorite Theory of a Deadman took the stage, opening with the title track from their new album, “Dinosaur.” The audience was immediately captivated as the band played a series of hits, with vocalist Tyler Connolly’s crooning voice leading the way. Surprises came in the form of an impressive cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and brief renditions of “Paradise City,” “Walk,” and “Song 2.” The set concluded with the crowd-pleaser “Bad Girlfriend,” leaving the arena eagerly anticipating the headliner.

Skillet, taking the stage with unmatched energy, closed the concert in a fury. The band’s stage presence was exceptional, featuring epic kicks and riffs from guitarist Korey Cooper and powerful vocals from John Cooper. The spectacle included memorable moments, such as John Cooper strapping foam cannons on each arm, spraying the crowd in a unique display. Guitarists Korey Cooper and Seth Morrison ascended above the crowd on moving platforms, adding to the visual excitement. The set reached new heights when Adam Gontier returned to the stage for a performance of “Finish Line.”

Towards the end of the evening, a medical emergency briefly halted the show. John Cooper led the crowd in a prayer while EMTs attended to the situation, showcasing the band’s care for their fans. Skillet’s performance at the Propst Arena created an unforgettable night for all in attendance.

The Rock Resurrection Tour featuring Skillet, Theory of a Dead Man and Saint Asonia, proved to be a phenomenal experience. This powerhouse trio delivered a night of spectacle and hard-hitting entertainment, showcasing their legendary status. Describing the night as phenomenal is an understatement!
