Tesla announces return to the concert stage, including two Iowa dates

After an 18-month hiatus due to the Covid-19 lockdown, multi-platinum rock band Tesla announced their return to performing live concerts with the “Let’s Get Real!” tour kicking off Aug. 5 in Grants Pass, Oregon and includes Iowa stops in Dubuque on Aug. 14, and at the Iowa State Fair on Aug. 18 with Styx.

“We are so excited and anxious to get back to performing ‘real’ live concerts again,” guitarist Frank Hannon said. “There’s nothing like the energy of being in the same spontaneous moment with an audience of people. Tesla has always taken pride in being a high energy live band relying on performances without any backing tracks or pre-recorded help. We are planning some surprises for our fans on this upcoming tour by playing some deeper Tesla cuts as well as a fresh brand new song we just wrote. Of course, we will play the hits as well, but introducing a fresh new track on this return is something we are very excited about.”

Tickets and special VIP soundcheck packages are on sale now at TeslaTheBand.com

Over the course of their 35-year career, the Sacramento hard rock quintet of Hannon (guitar), Brian Wheat (bass), Jeff Keith (lead vocals), Troy Luccketta (drums), and Dave Rude (guitar) have sold more than 25 million albums.
