Route 66 Casino Hotel is pleased to announce the legendary American rock band TESLA will perform in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at 8 p.m. inside the Legends Theater. This will be an all ages show.
One of the world’s most celebrated and enduring rock bands with a diehard, loyal fanbase, TESLA has enjoyed international chart, radio, and tour success for nearly 35 years, with global album sales topping 15 million.
That they are still roaring and soaring should be no surprise. That’s just how they are built. TESLA may have been born in the mid ’80s eruption of leather, spandex and big hair, but this band has never been about those things. Their bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic, authentic 1970s rock and roll. The same roots that produced bands like the Allman Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aerosmith.
Thanks to their die-hard, loyal fan base and their younger generation offspring, TESLA continues to tour to sold-out crowds around the world. Celebrating 30+ years of kick ass Rock ‘n’ Roll gives their audience a musical journey that keeps the loyal fans coming back and has newcomers realizing, “Wow, I didn’t know they did that song! Such hit songs include, “Modern Day Cowboy,” “Little Suzi,” “Heaven’s Trail (No Way Out),” and “Love Song.”
TESLA’s music is often referred to as heavy metal but is better described as blues metal. The band’s lyrics also strayed from the themes popular in heavy metal, particularly in the 1980’s at the beginning of their career. During these early years, they often toured with David Lee Roth, Def Leppard, and Aerosmith.
