Tesla’s 2021 tour will see the band performing select dates with Kid Rock, Styx and Lynyrd Skynyrd

Classic rockers Tesla have announced an extensive, 29-date North American tour slated for summer and fall 2021. The trek is dubbed “Let’s Get Real!” and also features some one-off shows sharing the stage with bands and artists such as Kid Rock, Styx and Lynyrd Skynyrd, plus a few festival appearances.

“We are so excited and anxious to get back to performing ‘real’ live concerts again,” 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.”

He added, “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!”

The ‘Let’s Get Real!’ tour will kick off with an appearance Aug. 5 at the Josephine County Fairgrounds in Oregon and keep the band on the road through a Nov. 20 stint in Tupelo, Missouri, at the BancorpSouth Arena with Lynyrd Skynyrd. Most of the tour dates take place in August and September, with a handful set for October and November.

Tesla bass player Brian Wheat recently caught up with Audio Ink Radio to talk about his new memoir, “Son of a Milkman: My Crazy Life with Tesla.” In the interview, he said, that his hope for the memoir was that people would read it and say, “Look, he’s just like us. He plays in Tesla, but he has anxiety or he’s insecure about his weight or he has autoimmune disease or he was bulimic or whatever, and he’s not ashamed to talk about it. Maybe it’ll help some people.”
