Hobart Arena                                       Troy, OH.  February 11, 2017

What a great night for a rock show! Normally the tempature is freezing in February in Ohio. Troy, OH. was on fire at Hobart Arena as 104.7 WTUE presented a Sold Out show as B-Man got the crowd ready for the only opener of the show The Cringe.


Most people in the crowd never heard of this support band on the road with Tesla. I knew who they were because I had the pleasure of covering them on their last tour opening for the Final Tour of Motley Crue. I knew Troy, OH. was in for an unexpected treat delivered by John Cusimano, and his band.


Half of the set was new songs of their new album "Blind Spot" out in stores, and on itunes now. James Rotondi is a beast on guitar, and Jonny Blaze rocked out some thunderous beats on bass. Andrew Meskin was killing it on drums through the entire set. They ended their epic set with the classic cover of "Jailbreak" by legendary rockers Thin Lizzy.


It was now time to rock to 30 Years of music from 80's icons Tesla! This band is still filled with electric, and still sound amazing! Jeff Keith's voice is still as strong as it was back in their prime days. Frank Hannon & Dave Rude are about as good as it gets as a pair of guitarists. After all these years Brian Wheat (Bass) & Troy Luccketta (Drums) still know how to have fun while keeping this epic band in line on stage.


The setlist covered pretty much all the key times of this band. They even threw in "Save That Goodness" in the set that Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen help write. Phil is also producing the new Tesla album that the guys have been working on. The setlist covered 16 songs with all the classic Tesla songs. The crowd was singing right along with the band.


If you get a chance to see this tour "GO"!! It is worth it. If you can make this tour be on the lookout in April when Tesla will go back on the road supporting the Def Leppard & Poison Tour.
