Hold on, ’cause they’re about to light it up!

Rev Theory, formerly Revelation Theory, performed for thousands of fans at Thunder Field in Orlando, Fla. on March 30.

“We love what we do, and it was great to play for these WWE fans,” Rich Luzzi, Rev Theory lead vocalist, said.

The band was performing as part of World Wrestling Entertainment’s Fan Axcess Tour. Their new single, “Light It Up,” was one of the official Wrestlemania 24 theme songs, along with “Snow ((Hey Oh))” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

“I couldn’t think of a song that gets me more hyped for this event,” wrestling legend, Jimmy Hart, said when addressing the live audience.

Rev Theory played two one hour sets, one at 2:30 p.m. and another at 5:30 p.m. They performed across the street from the Citrus Bowl, the location of Wrestlemania 24.

“Those guys rock!” WWE Diva Candice Michelle, said when speaking to the crowd.

Rev Theory also did a meet and greet with fans following their performance. Fans had the opportunity to take pictures, get autographs and ask questions to the band.

“They were awesome to meet and totally into the fans,” Curt Reigert, a fan in attendance, said.

Rev Theory were not the only celebrities to help WWE out with Wrestlemania. Kim Kardashian served as a guest hostess to the event while Snoop Dogg got involved in the women’s match. Raven Symone was there to help represent the Make-A-Wish foundation, along with 50 kids who were having their wish fulfilled. John Legend performed “America The Beautiful” to kick off the show.

Rev Theory’s second album, “Light It Up” won’t be available until this summer but their singles “Hell Yeah” and “Light It Up” are now available on iTunes. Their first CD, “Truth Is Currency,” is also available. They will be touring with Flyleaf and Seether beginning this month.

“They really put on a killer show,” Matt Hawkins, a fan in attendance, said. “‘Truth Is Currency’ was a pretty good album, but I have a feeling that their new one is going to destroy it. They’re definitely going to light up the charts.”
