Tesla bringing their Mechanical Resonance Live! tour to Denver’s Paramount Theatre

Heralded hard rockers Tesla will be hitting the road this summer to support their new album Mechanical Resonance Live!, a live recording of the band’s platinum certified 1986 debut album. To celebrate 30 years of Mechanical Resonance, Tesla will be making a stop at Denver’s Paramount Theatre on Tuesday, July 25. Tickets for Tesla at the Paramount go on sale Friday, April 14 at 10:00 a.m. You can find them here.

1986’s Mechanical Resonance rocketed Tesla to national as well as international success and established the band as a household name. At that time they also embarked on a tour with fellow hard rock legends Def Leppard, with whom they would form a lasting friendship, especially Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen.

Fittingly, it was on tour with Def Leppard 30 years later where Collen suggested that Tesla—known for their live performances—record a live version of Mechanical Resonance. Tesla took Collen’s advice and the result was Mechanical Resonance Live!, and in many ways the live album rivals the studio version. “Some of these live renditions are better than the performances on the original record,” bassist Brian Wheat said in a statement. The album also contains a new track, "Save That Goodness." You can check it out above.

35 years later and Tesla is still rockin’. Don’t miss your chance to see them live July 25 at the Paramount Theatre.
