Tesla announce US tour

Tesla have announced dates for an early 2017 US tour.

The 5-week run will begin February 1 at the Arcada Theatre in St, Charles, IL and is scheduled through a March 4 show at the House Of Blues in Houston, TX.

The Sacramanto, CA rockers recently wrapped up an extensive North American tour with Def Leppard and REO Speedwagon as they hit the road in support of “Mechanical Resonance, Live!”

The project marks the 30th anniversary of their debut album if the same name by capturing the 1986 record in its entirety live; the set was rounded out with a new studio single, “Save That Goodness”, which was written and produced by Phil Collen of Def Leppard.

According to Collen, Tesla bassist Brian Wheat heard “Save That Goodness” and told the guitarist, “We should record this song and you should produce it.”

“From that moment, we’ve been writing, recording and getting totally inspired about making new Tesla music,” adds Collen, calling the single “an explosive precursor to the dynamic new Tesla studio album due out in 2017” that the Def Leppard guitarist will produce.
