Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience announce North American dates

Jason Bonham has some juggling to do this year: between his commitments with Black Country Communion and touring with Paul Rodgers, the drummer is also taking his Led Zeppelin Experience back out on the road.

Bonham will tour the UK with Rodgers in April, the US with the Led Zeppelin Experience in May, and then hit the US with Black Country Communion in June.

A new series of North American dates for Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience has been announced, with shows kicking off May 4 in Connecticut.

The band rocked its way across North America in 2010 to very positive reviews, giving Bonham the opportunity to return for more gigs.

Bonham and his band — James Dylan (Virtual Zeppelin) on vocals, Tony Catania on lead guitar, Michael Devin (Whitesnake) on bass and Stephen LeBlanc on guitar, pedal steel guitar and keyboards — blaze through the Zeppelin catalog, while historical footage and photos are displayed on the big screens around them.

“I have always loved playing the music of Led Zeppelin,” Jason said when he announced the 2010 tour. “After such a great night back in 2007 at the 02 Arena, I took an opportunity to do 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 to the 02 show.”

No word, yet, on how (or if) the show will differ from last year’s trek. Stay tuned.
