Veteran hard rock band Tesla is still going strong after 12 albums, more than 2,500 shows, and more than 16 million albums sold worldwide. The 25-year-old band is gearing up for its latest world tour that begins June 6 at the Sweden Rock Festival. After the European dates conclude on June 27, they will start a U.S. trek on July 12 in Boerne, TX, which will last through the summer and well into the fall.

Tesla’s 2008 world tour will support the band’s third DVD, “Comin’ Atcha Live! 2008,” scheduled to be released on June 24 on their Tesla Electric Company Recordings label (in partnership with Ryko Distribution). The DVD was filmed at the Myth Nightclub in Maplewood, MN on Feb. 22, 2008. At the sold-out show, fans were treated to numerous Tesla classics such as “What You Give,” “Signs,” “Modern Day Cowboy,” “Love Song” and “Little Suzi.”

“This DVD marks a new era creatively for Tesla because we put it all together ourselves, capturing the band’s concert and life on the road,” said lead guitarist Frank Hannon in a statement. “Nowadays, we are more involved in every aspect of our music career than ever before. We are very excited about the creative results and it really shows in the new DVD.”

“Comin’ Atcha Live! 2008” is filled with more than two hours of live music and more than an hour of special behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen material, including footage of Tesla interacting with fans. It also marks the world premiere of “Dear Pvt. Ledbetter,” a new song written in honor of the troops from the band’s forthcoming album, which is due out in September.
