Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience to Launch West Coast Tour
The popular and critically acclaimed concert Jason Bonham’s Led ZeppelinExperience (JBLZE)--which celebrates the life and music of Jason’s father, the legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham--will return to the west coast starting October 5 in Napa Valley, CA and concluding October 16 in Sacramento, CA. In November, JBLZE will head to the east coast and select dates in Canada. Tickets for the JBLZE shows are now on sale; see www.jblze.com for ticket links and more information.
"This is a personal trip through my life with the music of Led Zeppelin,” explains Jason, "and how the music influenced me."
Jason played with Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones at Led Zeppelin's "final" show at London's O2 Arena in 2007. The O2 Arena show was heralded as the most powerful Led Zeppelin performance since the group’s original disbandment. The band received uniformly rave reviews the epic night will finally see a worldwide theatrical release titled Celebration Day in 1,500 screens in 40 territories beginning October 17. Tickets will be available starting September 13 via www.ledzeppelin.com.
“Performing my father’s songs at the Led Zeppelin 02 reunion concert in 2007 was an honor that I will forever remember as one of the most bittersweet, yet greatest nights of my life,” says Jason Bonham. “I’m over the moon that the 02 concert will finally be available for all Zeppelin fans to enjoy. That special night was the original spark that ignited JBLZE.”
Bonham partnered with Annerin Productions--the critically acclaimed theatrical producers of "PFX-The Pink Floyd Experience" and "Rain, A Tribute to the Beatles"--to create a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience. Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience is a spectacular rock concert with the iconic blues-infused rock ‘n’ roll of Led Zeppelin, stunning atmospheric video and lighting effects, which highlight the unique history that JASON BONHAM shares–in commemoration of his father John Bonham–with the legendary rock n’ roll group Led Zeppelin. Jason and his band’s powerful live performance of over 20 iconic Led Zeppelin classics takes concert-goers through a mesmerizing visual and aural journey as giant backdrops display iconic art, and Bonham’s own historical footage, photos and stories are set to stunning atmospheric effects.
