Jason Bonham, son of the late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, will bring his version of the band's classic songs to the road with a fal tour that will land the band in Hollywood on October 14, 2011. His group, Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience, will perform at the Greek Theatre.
The outdoor amphitheatre has long been a favorite destinations of music fans.
Many of those that buy tickets to the concert have previously seen Bonham's father playing live Zeppelin. For those who never saw that band live, they can experience Zep's music as presented and led by a younger generation of hard rock fans.
The group's performance is a spectacular rock concert with iconic Led Zeppelin rock songs, in memory of his father John Bonham.
Discussing the tour, Bonham notes, “The music created by John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and my father John Bonham is timeless, groundbreaking and pure magic.I always feel closer to him while I'm performing their music and the response has been overwhelming.” CONTINUE READING THIS ARTICLE BELOW THIS ADVERTISEMENT:
