Led Zeppelin: Tribute Tour
Jason Bonham, son of deceased Led Zeppelin drummer John, is planning an audacious 30-date tour revisiting the songs of his father's band, accompanied by family photos, home movies and music from an as-yet unspecified tribute band. In the wake of the latest rumours of a Led Zeppelin reunion being quashed, Bonham Jr looks set to get his own project on the road. This is more than just a cashing in on his father's memory - the drummer filled in for his father for the band's 2007 reunion concert at the O2 Arena. Bonham told Blabbermouth, "I have always loved playing the music of Led Zeppelin and after such a great night back in 2007 at the O2 Arena, I took an opportunity to [begin work on] a very special show which would look at my life with the music of Led Zeppelin. "Old photos, home movies and videos would help take you on a journey into my life from my earliest memories right up the O2 show." Bonham also said that the North American tour would be designed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of his father's death, in September of this year. The 43-year-old drummer has been among the loudest voices calling for a Led Zeppelin reunion tour, meeting consistent resistance to the idea from Robert Plant. Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.
