Legendary Californian rockers Tesla are throwing a special listening party for their new album, Five Man London Jam, which is out today, 27 March, via UMe. The album is a live performance of some their most iconic songs from their catalogue.
The listening party starts online at 10am PST/5pm BST and fans can join the band’s Brian Wheat for a Spotify Listening Party & Live Chat.
Five Man London Jam was recorded and filmed in 4K high-definition as an homage to their critically acclaimed and highly influential Top 20 platinum album Five Man Acoustical Jam. Five Man London Jam will be available in multiple formats including Blu-ray, 2LP vinyl, CD and digitally.
The recording of this live album took place when Tesla visited the famed iconic recording studio Abbey Road Studios for a one-night musical event capturing the band performing songs from their legendary arsenal including ‘Love Song’ and ‘What You Give’ along with their classic covers of ‘Signs’ and ‘We Can Work It Out.’ Additionally, the band performed live for the first-time-ever their new song ‘California Summer Song’ from their latest album Shock including ‘Tied To The Tracks’ and ‘Forever Loving You.’
Earlier this week, Tesla became the latest band to change tour plans as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, postponing a run of North American shows that were set to take place starting next month. The concerts were scheduled to run from 10 April to 1 May. The tour is now being rescheduled for the coming fall.
“Due to the current concerns regarding coronavirus, the health and safety of our fans, local venue staffs, as well as the health and safety of our band and crew, is of utmost priority,” Tesla said in a statement. They noted that tickets would be honoured for the new dates, which would be announced “very soon.” Visit the band’s official website for updates and further information.
