HEART And JASON BONHAM To Pay Tribute To LED ZEPPELIN On Upcoming Tour
March 18, 2013
2013 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees HEART will take their critically acclaimed live show on the road this summer with very special guest JASON BONHAM'S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE. Ann and Nancy Wilson first met Jason Bonham, son of famed LED ZEPPELIN drummer John Bonham, when they performed "Stairway To Heaven" together at the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to LED ZEPPELIN in December 2012. Over 6 million fans have watched the performance online and purchased the track on iTunes. Now, in addition to a full set of HEART classic hits, including "Crazy On You", "Barracuda", "Alone", "These Dreams", "What About Love" and many more, fans can experience this historical pairing live when HEART and Bonham close each show with a special thirty-minute finale tribute to LED ZEPPELIN.
Ann Wilson promises fans an incredibly special event. "Nancy and I and the rest of HEART are thrilled to be playing with Jason and his band this summer," she says. "Awesome rock 'n' roll music everynight...miracles apt to happen any old time." Nancy adds, "It's not a tribute as we have the blessings of the gods themselves."
Jason says, "What a great night it was for us at the Kennedy Center awards, and now to be able to do it again on the road with Ann and Nancy is such an honor for me. I am really looking forward to taking my LED ZEP EXPERIENCE show out this summer with HEART and to join them in a ZEP-a-thon closing the show as well. Just fantastic!"
