Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening
In February 2009, Jason Bonham and James Dylan began working together in what would become Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience, a live homage to his father’s band. In the Fall of 2010, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience embarked on their first North American tour and toured worldwide during 2011. Bonham more recently played drums, along with sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson of the group Heart on vocals and guitar respectively, for a performance of Stairway to Heaven during the Led Zeppelin tribute at the Kennedy Center Honors in December 2012 while band members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones looked on.
In the Summer of 2013, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience joined forces with the band Heart for “The Heartbreaker Tour” celebrating the music of Led Zeppelin. Later that year, he teamed up again with Glenn Hughes to form a new rock band, which became California Breed, adding the guitarist Andrew Watt. In 2014, Bonham joined Sammy Hagar’s supergroup The Circle.
The band featured Led Zeppelin tracks along with songs from Hagar’s various career projects, such as Montrose, Van Halen, and Chickenfoot. From early March to late May 2015, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience toured extensively North America. On 4 December 2015, the band kicked off their North American Winter Tour in San Jose, California. In early May 2016, they embarked on a one-month / 22-date North American tour due to end in early June 2016.
