Heart and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience to Tour?
Heart gave their flawless rendition of Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven at the Kennedy Center Honors last year and now by the sounds of it, Heart may hit the road with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience.
At the Kennedy Center Honors last year, it was Jason Bonham on the skins as Heart did their version of Stairway to Heaven and apparently they all had so much fun, they’re going to be touring later this year.
The Heartbreaker Tour will feature only a 30 minute set with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience before Heart takes the stage, which I think don’t think is enough to show off all the talent they possess. I saw them in 2010 and it was incredible. Jason put together a great group of musicians who, when you closed your eyes could barely tell weren’t Led Zeppelin in the flesh. Jason’s group does get to close the show with another 30 minute set, but still, not enough time.
After the Kennedy Center Honors were all over, Jason Bonham, Ann and Nancy Wilson all talked about going out on tour and I’m so glad that it went just beyond talk because they gave me goose bumps and made Robert Plant tear up a little bit.
Ann Wilson is encouraging fans to come check out the show because, as she put it, it’s going to be special with “miracles apt to happen any old time”.
