The multiplatinum, award-winning band Theory of a Deadman (abbreviated Theory) was formed in British Columbia in 1999 by lead guitarist/vocalist Tyler Connolly and bassist Dean Back. After catching the attention of Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger with a demo tape, Theory landed a record deal and dropped their self-titled debut album in 2002, which was certified platinum in the United States and Canada in 2006. Since then, the band released an additional six albums, and nine of their singles have entered the top ten of the US Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, including four songs that peaked at number one: "Bad Girlfriend," "Lowlife," "Rx (Medicate)" and "History of Violence." Built on the foundations of post-grunge and alternative rock, Theory also embraces elements of country and pop, lending to a multifaceted and approachable sound that continues to captivate fans and dominate radio airwaves.
Rising from their humble beginnings as a homegrown Christian rock group, Skillet is now recognized as one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century. The two-time Grammy Award-nominated, multiplatinum quartet features husband-and-wife duo John Cooper (lead vocals/bass) and Korey Cooper (guitar/keys) in addition to drummer Jen Ledger and guitarist Seth Morrison. When the band formed in 1996, they leaned into the post-grunge style of the era but have since adopted a nu-metal/alternative rock sound. Skillet’s lyrics often pay tribute to their faith, but their undeniably powerful melodies have managed to draw in secular listeners, as evidenced by their breakthrough single “Monster,” which accrued over 285 million global audio streams. The band has released eleven albums, two of which, “Collide” and “Comatose,” received Grammy nominations. By 2019, Skillet had sold over 12 million albums worldwide and secured an impressive collection of RIAA gold, platinum and double-platinum certifications. Recognized as one of the hardest working bands in the industry, Skillet has continued their unstoppable drive with the aptly named 2022 album “Momentum.” Doors open at 7 p.m.
