“HEY FELLAS, HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS?” JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE IS BACK IN TOWN

(May 15, 2013 – New York, NY) – In the most apparent case of following in your father’s footsteps, Jason Bonham is taking Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience on the road again.  The son of drumming icon John Bonham, known for his work in Led Zeppelin, created the experience as a tribute to the legacy his father left behind.  The Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience is teaming up with Heart for a summer tour they are calling The Heartbreaker Tour.  The 32 city run will kick off on June 17th in West Palm Beach, FL and run throughout July and August before wrapping on August 30th in Portland, OR.  The show will feature the Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience kicking off the night, followed by a set from legendary rockers Heart that will culminate with Jason and company coming together for an all out jam of Led Zeppelin classics.  The idea for the tour stemmed from the still-talked-about performance that Jason and Heart did in tribute to Led Zeppelin at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors.

“What a great night it was for us at the Kennedy Center awards, and now to be able to do it again on the road with Ann and Nancy is such an honor for me. I am really looking forward to taking my Led Zep Experience show out this summer with Heart and to join them in a Zep-a-thon closing the show as well.  Just fantastic!” exclaims Bonham.

Jason Bonham’s love of playing drums didn’t develop until late in his teen years.  His original love was in motocross, but after his father passed away in 1980, that attention shifted and he returned to drumming.

By 18 years old, he had signed a record deal with Atlantic Records and was playing tours opening for the likes of Queen, AC/DC and Meat Loaf to name a few.  In 1988, he stepped behind the kit to fill in for Led Zeppelin when they performed at the Atlantic Record’s 40th Anniversary Concert and later recorded and toured with his father’s band mate, Jimmy Page.  In 1989, he received a platinum record with his band Bonham for their debut album The Disregard Of Timekeeping.  Jason appeared on the VH1 reality show Supergroup and formed a band with Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Ted Nugent, Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Evan Seinfeld (Biohazard).  Recently, aside from the Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience, Jason was playing in the critically acclaimed Black Country Communion alongside Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonamassa and Derek Sherinian.  Last year, Jason played drums on the newly released Celebration Day by Led Zeppelin, which was the live one-off performance the band played in 2007 at London’s legendary O2 Arena.
