Heart and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience will team up this summer for a North American tour.
According to an article posted today at USAToday.com, the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, fronted by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, along with the Black Country Communion drummer, son of the late Zep founding member John Bonham, will each perform sets with Bonham opening, then returning at night’s end for a half hour Led Zeppelin tribute.
The “Crazy on You” hitmakers, who are touring Canada this month, met Bonham when they performed the iconic Zep song “Stairway to Heaven” at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. last December in front of surviving bandmembers and were joined onstage by Bonham.
Their fiery live version has earned more than six million YouTube views.
Commenting on the upcoming tour, singer Ann Wilson says the show will feature “awesome rock ‘n’ roll music every night . . . miracles apt to happen any old time.”
The Heartbreaker Tour 30-city run kicks off on June 17 in West Palm Beach, Fla. at Cruzan Amphitheater and wraps up on Aug. 30 in Portland, Ore. at Sleep Country Amphitheater.
