Ever since he was little, Jason Bonham wanted to follow in his dad’s footsteps.
For those who may not know, Bonham’s father is John Bonham, the drummer for legendary band Led Zeppelin. So, at the age of five, he taught himself how to play the drums, hoping to one day be able to play with his father in the famed band. Sadly, John died in 1980, and, as a tribute to his father, he stepped in and played the drums when Zeppelin played a televised show celebrating the 40th anniversary of Atlantic Records, the band’s label.
Today, Jason Bonham is taking the memory of Led Zeppelin on the road with his Led Zeppelin Evening tour. From November and well into the Christmas season, the younger Bonham will be drumming to the memory of both his father and his father’s band, playing all of the classics and some new material along the way.
The tribute band got going in 2007, when he played the drums for Zeppelin at their highly-anticipated reunion show in London, and from that point on, Jason knew that he wanted to continue to spread the gospel of Zeppelin to every ear that would listen Here’s the complete tour itinerary and ticket information, and keep in mind that all dates and venues are subject to change.
