Nearly 30 years after their debut album, long-haired hard rockers Tesla are still bringing the goods to their legendary live shows. Taking the stage with an energy that belies their veteran status, Tesla thrilled fans on their Lazy Days, Crazy Nights tour in 2013, performing marathon sets of hits like "Love Song" and "What You Give." With a highly anticipated new album in the works for 2014, Tesla is well-oiled and ready to deliver another electric round of performances on the road.
Formed in Sacramento in the early '80s, Tesla spent several years trying to appeal to record labels with a poppy sound before a sage piece of advice from a Geffen exec led them to return to their roots in hard rock. The result was 1986 debut full-length Mechanical Resonance, an impressive collection of muscular rock songs that landed in the Top 40 and went on to sell platinum. 1989 Sophomore album The Great Radio Controversy further boosted the band's growing popularity with '80s power ballad "Love Song," a Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. After a hiatus in the late '90s, Tesla made a triumphant return to the stage in 2000 with a passionate reunion show in their hometown of Sacramento, paving the way for their renewed popularity both in the studio and on the road.
