TESLA’s 2020 Tour Rescheduled
Wednesday, September 23, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm MST
TESLA’s April 15th Concert Postponed to September 23rd
PHOENIX— Due to the governor’s mandate to combat the Corona Virus, all shows in March and April are being rescheduled. Longtime Phoenix favorites TESLA have rescheduled their April 15th concert to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 23rd. Tickets already purchased will be honored for the new date. Every ticket comes with an album.
TESLA returns to the road in support of their soon-to-be released live album, Five Man London Jam. Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, it‘s obvious TESLA is still roaring and soaring. Over the course of their thirty plus year career, the critically acclaimed iconic Sacramento melodic hard rock quintet—Frank Hannon [guitar], Brian Wheat [bass], Jeff Keith [lead vocals], Troy Luccketta [drums], and Dave Rude [guitar]— have sold more than 25 million albums and performed to sold out crowds across the world.
“This is a band we started in Frank’s garage when I was 18, and Frank was 15,” says bassist Brian Wheat. “I’m proud we’re still standing this many years later.”
The California rockers’ bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic, authentic 1970s rock and roll. The same roots that produced bands like the Allman Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aerosmith. The ground started shaking up in Sacramento in 1984; gold country that would soon be producing some platinum. Their 1986 debut album,Mechanical Resonance, would eventually go platinum and produced the iconic hits “Modern Day Cowboy” and “Little Suzi.” Today, Mechanical Resonance lives on as one of the most successful and acclaimed debuts of the era. 1989’s The Great Radio Controversy brought in new legions of fans with “Heaven’s Trail (No Way Out)” and “Love Song.” The Top 20 album reached double-platinum status. In 1990, TESLA stripped down the Five Man Acoustical Jam, a loose, informal collection of their biggest hits peppered with rock and roll classics by the Beatles, Stones and others. TESLA’s daring experiment also produced their biggest hit single, a cover of the Five Man Electrical Band’s “Signs.” Another platinum album, Psychotic Supper, was released in 1991. Bust a Nut was released in 1994 followed by a four-year break. In 2000, they exploded back only on their own terms with their own label, in full command of their own destiny, in all its rugged, ragged glory.
