WATCH: Tesla’s 1989 hit “Love Song” performed LIVE

“Love Song”was a power ballad written by Frank Hannon and Jeff Keith of the Tesla, originally released on their 1989 album The Great Radio Controversy. It would eventually go on to reach #10 on the U.S. charts, becoming the group’s biggest hit to date, as well as becoming a gold record. Tesla is an American heavy metal band formed in Sacramento, California in late 1981 by bassist Brian Wheat and guitarist Frank Hannon, but by 1986 morphed from its glam-derived sound to a more ‘rootsier’ direction.

We don’t know a lot about this video, so if anyone has any insight into where or when it was recorded (looks like late 89, early 1990) please let us know!
UPDATE:  A reader informed us this video is from Tesla’s 1990 Five Man Acoustical Jam Tour of 1990. Now if we could just pin down the location! Thanks though.

Here they are, Tesla, with “Love Song!”
