Heart & Jason Bonham tour to feature Led Zeppelin tribute

Heart and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience have announced a summer tour of North America.

The pairing’s “Heartbreaker” tour kicks off June 17 in West Palm Beach, FL, and will wrap August 30 in Portland, OR.

Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson first met Jason Bonham, son of famed Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, when they performed "Stairway To Heaven" together at the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to the band in December 2012.

Over 6 million fans have watched the performance online and purchased the track on iTunes.

Now, in addition to a full set of Heart classic hits, including "Crazy On You," "Barracuda," "Alone," "These Dreams," "What About Love" and many more, fans can experience this historical pairing live when Heart and Bonham close each show with a special thirty-minute finale tribute to Led Zeppelin.

"Nancy and I and the rest of Heart are thrilled to be playing with Jason and his band this summer," says Ann. "Awesome rock 'n' roll music every night...miracles apt to happen any old time."

"It's not a tribute as we have the blessings of the gods themselves," adds Nancy.

"What a great night it was for us at the Kennedy Center awards, and now to be able to do it again on the road with Ann and Nancy is such an honor for me,” says Bonham. “I am really looking forward to taking my Led Zep Experience show out this summer with Heart and to join them in a Zep-a-thon closing the show as well. Just fantastic!"

Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning on March 22.

Heart will be inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 18.
