On Saturday night, I had the pleasure of attending the seventh stop of the Rock Resurrection Tour at Roadrunner in Boston. The lineup featured three incredible rock bands, opening with Saint Asonia and Skillet and leading up to the headlining act, Theory of a Deadman.
The night kicked off with Saint Asonia, featuring former Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier and they did not disappoint. Their energy on stage was infectious, and the crowd was immediately captivated by their performance. They started and ended with two songs from their self-titled debut album, “Better Place” and “Let Me Live My Life”. The band played a great mix of their hits as well as two Three Days Grace covers, “Never too Late” and “I Hate Everything About You”, which ignited the crowd and set the tone for the rest of the evening. I was particularly impressed by Adam’s ability to engage the audience and keep everyone hyped up.
Next up was Skillet, who took the stage with a bang. Their heavy rock sound was a perfect transition from Saint Asonia’s performance, and they kept the energy level high. They played fan favorites like “Monster” and “Awake and Alive” as well as some newer tracks from their latest album, “Dominion”. The highlight of their set was when Adam Gontier joined the band on stage for “Finish Line”.
Finally, it was time for the headlining act, Theory of a Deadman. The band took the stage amid the cheers of the excited crowd and immediately launched into “Dinosaur”, the anthemic lead single and title track from their upcoming album. The song’s driving beat and soaring chorus had the audience singing along with the music. The band’s energy was infectious, and it was clear that they were there to put on a show.
As they continued their set, they played a great mix of their older material, like “Bad Girlfriend” and “Not Meant to Be,” which had the crowd singing along to every word. They also showcased some of their newer songs, which were received just as warmly. The band’s musicianship was evident in their seamless transitions between songs, and their stage presence was commanding.
The concert was an impressive display of the band’s talent and versatility and left the audience wanting more. Lead vocalist Tyler Connolly had a fantastic stage presence, and the band’s musicianship was top-notch.
Without a doubt, the Rock Resurrection Tour was an unforgettable night of phenomenal music. Each band brought their A-game, and the energy in the venue was electric. As a first-time attendee at Roadrunner, I was thoroughly impressed with the venue’s acoustics and overall atmosphere. I can’t wait to see what other great shows they have in store.
