On Tuesday night in the Midwest, Theory of a Deadman and Nonpoint brought out quite the crowd for a night full of a rock. Performing at the Clyde Theatre in Fort Wayne, fans lined the venue waiting to get in to finally see Theory after a few years. The last album they released was at the beginning of lockdown, arguably one of the most unfortunate times to release an album. But now they’re back getting to play shows for all their fans who have been waiting to hear songs from this album live. If you’re looking for a band who is going to talk to the crowd and play all the fan favorites, this is definitely the tour to attend.
Nonpoint opened the night with a bang. Playing some heavier rock and really getting the crowd excited for the night. This was my first time seeing them and the energy they brought was so much fun. With a red lit set, heavy breakdowns, and an overall rock vibe they complimented Theory’s set very well. It’s exciting getting to see different styles of rock tour together.
With only two bands performing, they both got to have longer set times than normal, so we got to hear a wide variety of both of their new and old music. Theory started off their setlist with a classic, “Lowlife”. They proceeded to play a couple more songs off their album The Truth Is…. They then played some of their newer music that fans have yet to hear. With a killer 15 song set and multiple fan interactions, they made the night fly by. I loved when Tyler (lead singer) brought out items that were hidden in the piano and tossed them to the crowd. You can tell how much this band really appreciates their fans. They announced a new album is being recorded and will be released soon. It’s amazing getting to see their encore with a newer and an older song that shows the variety of music Theory is able to do. It wouldn’t be a Theory show without them playing “Bad Girlfriend” but personally I was really excited to hear “Rx” live. When they came back out and did a two-song encore, it made my night. I moved to the balcony to get some wide shots of the venue and the crowd went absolutely crazy for the last two songs.
I’m very excited to see where they go with this next album and hopefully they will be coming back to Indiana. Make sure to check out their latest single “Strangers” and be on the lookout for a new album soon. And if they’re coming to your city on this tour, I highly suggest checking this show out!
