Tesla are a band that I have had a long musical affinity with since I first saw them support Def Leppard for two nights in my home country in Belfast in 1987

The headliners are welcomed onstage with cheers and hollers as they launch head-first into ‘Brave This Storm’; the opening track fromVengeance Falls. Frontman Matt Heafy revels in the adoration, pulling his usual contorted facial expressions with tongue touching chin when it is not needed to deliver an impressive mix of melodic and growled vocals
