The California rock band TESLA will perform in Hard Rock Event Center at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa on Thursday, January 19, 2023, at 8 p.m.

Fans can access venue presale tickets beginning Wednesday, August 10, at 10 a.m. through Seminole Hard Rock Tampa’s Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook pages.

Formed in 1981, TESLA is ranked at No. 22 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hair Metal. The group has sold 14 million albums in the United States.

TESLA’s bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic, authentic,1970’s rock and roll. The same roots that produced bands like The Allman Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Aerosmith.

Their 1986 debut album Mechanical Resonance would eventually go platinum, nestled comfortably in the top 40, and produce the iconic hard rock hits, “Modern Day Cowboy” and “Little Suzi.” Today, Mechanical Resonance lives on as one of the most successful and acclaimed debuts of the era.

TESLA, who in 2020 celebrated the 30th anniversary of one of its most iconic albums, Five Man Acoustical Jam, has endured many of the same taste-changing challenges that affected many in the post-grunge world, but through it all, their blue-collar work ethic and dedication to their faithful fan base has helped them not just survive, but thrive.
