For 37 years, TESLA continues to write, record, and tour to the excitement of their fans. In 2014 they released a stellar straight-up, hard-rocking album, “Simplicity” and then in 2019 released “Shock,” a rock album but with a bit more polished and shine. It was written and recorded while on tour in hotels, backstage, and on buses with Phil Collen of Def Leppard at the production helm, and layered with tons of lush guitar work and smooth vocals and choruses.
TESLA – Frank Hannon [guitar], Brian Wheat [bass], Jeff Keith [vocals], Troy Luccketta [drums], and Dave Rude [guitar]– remains one of the most celebrated and enduring rock bands with a diehard, loyal fanbase. They have enjoyed international chart, radio, and tour success for nearly 37 years, with multi-platinum albums and global album sales topping 15 million.Together they have sold more than 25 million albums domestically and played globally to sold-out crowds.
The band is still kicking ass live, and this summer will be touring the US for their “Let’s Get Real Tour.” It kicks off June 11th in Lincoln, California, and finishes up in Concord, California. This round-trip jaunt of the US will take on 34 shows. Tickets are on sale now at www.teslaband.com.
