Tesla to join Def Leppard at Buffalo Chip Monday, Aug. 8

Tesla, the Sacramento-based metal blues band, Tesla will join Def Leppard at the Legendary Buffalo Chip on Monday, Aug. 8, the official start of the 71st Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The multi-platinum-selling rock band has been playing to sell-out crowds since the release in 1987 of “Little Suzi” and “Modern Day Cowboy” from their debut album, Mechanical Resonance.

Bikers who attend the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally particularly appreciate the band’s electrifying stage show and musicianship, according to campground owner Rod Woodruff.
