As Theory of a Deadman kick off their headlining run with labelmates Taking Dawn in tow, we caught up with Theory’s illustrious frontman Tyler Connolly to talk about what the band is looking forward to on this 31-city trek.

Jokester that he is, Connolly replied, “We’re looking forward to this run ending!” But Tyler contends more seriously, “I guess the answer would have to be probably that we get to play a full set. We’ll get to go to a lot of cities -- a lot of big cities -- we haven’t been to in a while. A lot of the tours with Motley Crue and Daughtry hit some secondary markets, which were great, but now we get to go to some of our favorite cities. And the headline thing’s going to be great.”

As for tonight’s inaugural show, Connolly explains, “Minneapolis, that’s one of our best cities. It’s going to be cold as hell there, but [it’s] good to go back.”

Don't miss Theory of a Deadman and Taking Dawn as they take the US by storm.
