As the last fans made their way into the venue, you could feel the excitement in the air. As soon as the band came out, all you could hear was a unison of cheers. The stage light changed from black, to blue, red giving the band that classic rock presence. As soon as they started playing Lowlife the band gained +1500 back up singers as everyone sang along. After a stellar opening performance, lead singer Tyler Connolly, would keep the energy flowing by playing Blow. There was a unique moment I must mention as Tyler pretended to blow his brains out with a finger, the dark yet humorous moment got a pop from the crowd. As the time for Bitch Came Back arrived, the crowd and myself were on the edge of our non existent seats. By far my favorite moment of the concert as everyone from young to old, women and men, would sing every word with such energy to dwarf most concerts experiences.
Taking a turn and making things feel a bit calmer, the band would make great use of a piano. With blue light illuminating the stage, Tyler sang All or Nothing, Straight Jacket, and Drown.
As a treat to the Chicago crowd, Wicked Games by Chris Is ask was covered. When all the songs were played, the band had left the stage, and the last fan had left the Apollo theater one thing could be made clear. Regardless of race, gender, and age, everyone had an amazing time watching one of their favorite bands. Theory of a Deadman is one of those bands I have been dreaming of seeing live and their performance, vocals, along with the crowds energy made this experience phenomenal.
