Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening Rolls Out Fall Dates


Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Evening has announced a 16-date North American fall trek. The band, which kicks off a week's worth of shows next week, will hit the road again on October 8th at Indio, California's Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and wind things down for the year on December 11th at Hollywood, Florida's Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood.

Jason Bonham, who launched the band — originally known and Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience — over a decade ago, told us that at this point, the group is geared up to tackle any piece of music Zeppelin ever recorded and recreate it in a live setting: ["I don't steer clear of anything — we will try everything. There's definitely some things from Physical Graffiti, like 'Trampled Underfoot,' or 'Misty Mountain Hop' — 'In The Light' is just recently added, which is a huge epic from Physical Graffiti. And I just always find that you've got to represent every album for it to really work."] SOUNDCUE (:19 OC: . . .to really work)

Jason Bonham told us that playing drums is what keeps him tied to his father, the late-great John Bonham, who died when he was only 14: ["I have a helluva lot to live up to. A lot of people say, 'What's it like, y'know, you're the son of John Bonham!' And I say, 'Y'know, what? It's kinda cool, 'cause he was such an icon in such an iconic band.' It just gives me enough get up and go to say, 'Y'know what, I just wanna make him happy and prove to him and show him that, Dad, you've handed me down a business.' Y'know, like some fathers they hand them down their work — even though he wasn't there to hand it down to me himself, to me, I feel — if anything — he left me at such an early age, but he gave me a career."] SOUNDCUE (:37 OC: . . . me a career)
