TESLA Singer's Bronchitis Forces Sacramento Concert Postponement

Known as the originators of the "unplugged" craze of the '90s, California rockers TESLA launched the 20th-anniversary tour last month of their legendary "Five Man Acoustical Jam" in full acoustic fashion in support of their new album, "Twisted Wires And The Acoustic Sessions".

Earlier today (Friday, December 2), the band issued the following statement:

"We are sorry to announce that [TESLA singer] Jeff Keith still has bronchitis and after singing [at The Fillmore] in San Francisco last night, we are unable to perform in Sacramento this weekend. These shows are being rescheduled to a later date as of now, until Jeff Keith can fully recover from being sick."

Affected dates:

Dec. 02 - Sacramento, CA - Ace Of Spades (rescheduled for Jan. 27)
Dec. 03 - Sacramento, CA - Ace Of Spades (rescheduled for Jan. 28)

Fan-filmed video footage of TESLA's December 1, 2011 performance at The Fillmore in San Francisco can be seen below.

TESLA released "Twisted Wires And The Acoustic Sessions" in Europe on July 25 via Scarlet Records. The CD, which came out in North America on July 12, features six songs that were recorded back in 2005 at bassist Brian Wheat's J Street Recorders studio which also serve as the last recordings with original member Tommy Skeoch and six newly recorded tracks, including acoustic remakes of songs from TESLA's entire catalog and two brand new songs, "Second Street" and "Better Off Without You".
