Jason Bonham presents an evening with Led Zeppelin at Louisville Palace

Calling all Led Zeppelin fans!

Jason Bonham, son of original Led Zeppelin member John Bonham, is bringing the Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience to the Louisville Palace Dec. 4 to celebrate Led Zeppelin’s iconic music. After the unforgettable reunion of Led Zeppelin in 2007 at London’s O2 area in which Jason played the drums, he decided to embark on the journey that is the Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening.

At the age of only 5, Jason could play the drums, at least a scaled-down set of them, with skill. When he was 17, he joined the band Air Race. The group signed a record contract with Atlantic Records, recorded one album, and opened for big names like Queen, Meat Loaf, Ted Nugent and AC/DC. John Bonham died in 1980, but Jason, who has marked a few places in music history himself, has stepped in from time to time to help keep his father’s memory alive. In 1988, Jason took his father’s spot in the televised, first-ever Led Zeppelin reunion at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert, which included Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones. Later than year, he went on to tour with Page and recorded the album Outrider with him.

By 1989, he completed the album The Disregard of Timekeeping with his new band called “Bonham.” One of the tracks from this first effort, “Wait For You,” earned him a gold record. By 1992, with partners like Canadian vocalist Daniel MacMaster, guitarist Ian Hatton, and bassist and keyboardist John Smithson, Jason finished another album: “Mad Hatter.”

Jason represented his father when Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in January 1995, with his sister Zoe by his side. He soon put together another solo project that culminated in “In the Name of My Father — The Zepset,” which featured the songs of Led Zeppelin. Proceeds from the album went to charity. The album followed up with “When You See the Sun.”

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and range from $25-$75. All ages are welcome. Service charges are not included on ticket prices. Tickets are subject to price increases. Tickets may be purchased at www.LouisvillePalace.com or at The Louisville Palace Box Office, 625 South Fourth St. For premium seats, lounge access, parking and more, contact Mindy Goff at mindygoff@livenation.com or call (502) 883-5804.
