The critically acclaimed JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE--an unforgettable night of rock n’ roll featuring the blues-rock of Led Zeppelin--will return this spring for a month-long U.S. concert tour beginning Sunday, May 3 in Hollywood, FL and wrapping up on Sunday, May 31 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.

JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE--described as “a band that recreates Led Zeppelin’s music to such a degree that one can’t help but close their eyes and simply listen” (Classic Rock Revisited, 11/2010)--celebrates the life and music of his father, the legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. The new show will encompass the band’s albums including their 1969 debut Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II  (also released in 1969) and many more Led Zeppelin favorites from the canon including Led Zeppelin IV and Physical Graffiti  as well as hits and deep cuts (see a partial set list below). In the cities where there are back-to-back nights, the show set lists will be completely different (see all dates below).

The last 18 months of JASON BONHAM’s life have been a whirlwind. He won a Grammy Award (“Best Rock Album,” Led Zeppelin, Celebration Day), performed for President Obama--when Led Zeppelin received the Kennedy Center Honors--worked with Phil Collins, joined The Circle with Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, recorded an album with California Breed alongside Glenn Hughes. Bonham also recorded an entire drum library for the legendary film composer and music producer Hans Zimmer and became part of a who's who of drumming drum orchestra for Hans Zimmer while recording the soundtrack to his film Man of Steel.

“After the release of Celebration Day in 2012, suddenly a lot of people who had never heard me play before started to call me and ask if I could play drums for them, and then to win a Grammy for my performance, wow,” explains JASON BONHAM. “One of those people was Hans Zimmer whom I am a huge fan of. In my work with Hans, we’ve painstakingly created an entire drum library.” JASON adds, “It’s been about a year since we last went out with the band and I’m excited to bring the Led Zeppelin Experience back out on the road with a new energy and a diverse set list. This time around we are doing more album work and including a lot of songs that Led Zeppelin never played live before. We have a few cities where we’ll do two consecutive nights. The second night will be different from the first night; therefore, if you come both nights, you won’t be disappointed. There will be giant screens with home movies and we are bringing back the ‘Moby Dick’ duet as I know it was missed on our last run. See you in May. JB”
