Third Man Records founder and American singer-songwriter Jack White made a special visit to the Tesla factory in Fremont, CA, earlier today, surprising the Tesla team with a free concert which was broadcast to employees around the world. Prior to the concert, White toured the innovative manufacturing plant and enjoyed a test ride in Tesla's new Model 3 Performance at the factory's test track.
"I am a huge fanatic and supporter of everything Tesla has been doing since day one," says White. "I'm proud to say I was one of the first Model S owners in Nashville, which I think is the greatest automobile ever made. It's been a thought of mine for a few years now that I would love to do a free concert for the employees at the Fremont factory. I believe that what Tesla is doing is so important for the future of how we look at car design itself. The added benefits of its help towards fixing climate change and taking the world away from the internal combustion engine are incredible. Making cars that are safer for the occupants and others on the road also fulfill the pioneered dreams of automobile entrepreneur, Preston Tucker, which ultimately is the definition of the American dream. I'm very excited to play for Tesla's employees who are doing so much good for the progression of technology and the world right now."
