Theory of a Deadman hits San Diego and Las Vegas!

I was a fan of Theory of a Deadman since their self-title album with Chad Kroeger from Nickelback sitting at the producer’s chair. This album spawned their biggest or should I say my radio favorite “Invisible Man.” Granted there are still many great songs on the album but that one is a great car song.

Pictures and review after the jump…

It was great to see these guys open for the Saints of Los Angeles Tour when it stopped in San Diego, CA. Mind you this review is from San Diego and the pictures are from Las Vegas at the Joint. This was Theory’s first performance in San Diego. The crowd appeared to be receptive of them although not many were actually in the arena yet. Many fans didn’t show up to the venue until 30 minutes before the Crue went on.

The sound in general SUCKED at Cox Arena but I am pretty sure it’s because a). where we were sitting b). the fact that the arena wasn’t even 1/3rd full. I could only hear Tyler’s vocals during choruses.

They played as Tyler said, “A song for shitty days,” “I hate my life.” Now this is an awesome song minus the fact they gripe about spending money on their wives. Men really need to invest in a sugarmomma. They also played “Bad Girlfriend.”

Their set was fairly short because they had to make room for Hinder and then the Crue. Plus they also had an opening act that I completely missed because they started at 6:30pm and that’s about the time I arrived at Cox.

Theory of a Deadman is out supporting their newest release Scars & Souvenirs. Visit their official website or their Myspace for more details.
