Tesla will make their return to the stage in early August on their Let’s Get Real! North American tour, which will run through November.
The modern-day cowboys will kick off their trek on Aug. 5 in Grants Pass, Ore., and conclude on Nov. 20 in Tupelo, Miss. They’ll be opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd on several dates, and in mid-August they’ll play one show apiece with Styx and Kid Rock. Full ticket information can be found on Tesla’s website.
The quintet will also sojourn in Quintana Roo, Mexico, for five days as part of the Sands festival at Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort. The sold-out event will also include performances by headliner Billy Idol, Cheap Trick, Loverboy and many more.
“We are so excited and anxious to get back to performing ‘real’ live concerts again,” Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon said in a statement. “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!”
