Jason Bonham Definitely Moving Forward On This Whole “Tour As Led Zeppelin” Thing

3

In May, we reported that Jason Bonham was planning a tour called “Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience” that would feature Bonham and his band playing Led Zeppelin songs and touring with Led Zeppelin memorabilia. Well, dude is definitely doing it, as he is going to be launching the 30-show tour in October (the dates aren’t entirely firm yet). He also allegedly has Robert Plant’s blessing, which I guess makes this less egregious:

“I’m not going to hide it from them,” Bonham, who filled his late father John “Bonzo” Bonham’s spot and played with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones at the 2007 Zep reunion concert at London’s O2 arena, tells Billboard.com. “I will invite them to every show I can, because my goal and dream is, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if I did something that they thought was cool and they would get up and play with me?’ That’s what I’m doing (this) for. I’d love it.”

Ha! Good way to lure fans in with the false promise of John Paul Jones hopping up to do “Kashmir.” The odds of a Led Zeppelin member actually appearing at this: none. [Yahoo]
