Hard rock veterans Tesla have announced a string of headline dates in the US for the months of February and March 2017.
Tesla‘s press release states (with slight edits):
“Following a massive summer arena tour with Def Leppard and REO Speedwagon, Tesla is hitting the road once again this winter. Beginning on February 1st in Saint Charles, IL, the band will play shows throughout the mid-west through March 4th. See full tour routing below.
Tesla concluded their summer tour with the release of their new album “Mechanical Resonance, Live!” (Tesla Electric Company Recordings/Mailboat).

Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its concert review of Tesla‘s last tour stop in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 16, 2016: “One thing about Tesla is that you know what you are getting which is a really tight sounding, hard rocking, no frills, blue collar rock n’ roll band. Once again, Tesla delivered the goods in strong fashion on this night.”
