Theory of a Deadman The Venue Horseshoe Casino Review

THE VENUE, Hammond, Indiana – Halloween ended six days ago, but the two finger devil horns were floating in the air to watch Satan’s music.

Theory of a Deadman’s music is nowhere being called satanic. In fact, their hit songs are either about romance, breaking up, being broken-up or songs that just shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

Rather than Theory of a Deadman running into seclusion by some angry mothers, they invoked their first amendment right of freedom of speech and performed “Bitch Came Back.”

The controversial song that angry mothers say, “is demeaning to women” and “It’s Satan’s music” was actually co-written by a woman. Women in the audience were even singing the song!

The song shouldn’t be taken too seriously and it’s not about all women, it’s about one woman. If “Bitch Came Back” is Satan’s music, the entire audience is going to Hell because they seemed to enjoy it!

Tyler Connolly seemed like he was once again on Comedy Central as he remarked on “Lowlife,” “What are you pointing at?” He tossed another quip right before “Out of My Head” with “Would you like the microphone?”

If “Bitch Came Back” is Satan’s music, the entire audience is going to Hell because they seemed to enjoy it!

The truth is the microphone would’ve never been passed around because it is Tyler Connolly’s show when he is in possession of the microphone.

Tyler even attempted to make the audience famous by recording on his Flip camera as he remarked, “[We’ll] put it on the Internet and make you famous.”

Unlike the Avalanche Tour, Theory performed an older song, “Santa Monica,” with Tyler Connolly on the acoustic guitar. Theory of a Deadman even tossed snake eyes with a cover of Eric Clapton’s “Cocaine” and “The Truth Is…”.

Tyler Connolly’s vocals have definitely improved, since the Avalanche Tour and Theory of a Deadman outshined their Eagles’ Ballroom performance back on March 25th.

An individual doesn’t need to drive to “Santa Monica” or be either a “Gentleman,” “Lowlife,” “Bad Girlfriend” or “So Happy” to enjoy Theory of a Deadman’s music.

You just have to enjoy a little humility in some of their lyrics without taking it too personal and you might just find yourself being a Deadman fan forever.

The Venue Set List:

1. “Gentleman”
2. “Got it Made”
3. “All or Nothing”
4. “So Happy”
5. “Bitch Came Back”
6. “The Truth Is…”
