Heart to tour with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Exp.!

Heart and Jason Bonham‘s Led Zeppelin Experience are joining forces for a 30-date joint summer trek, dubbed, the Heartbreaker Tour. The joint dates kick off on June 17th in West Palm Beach, Florida at Cruzan Amphitheater and wind down on August 30th at Portland, Oregon’s Sleep Country Amphitheater. In announcing the summer run, Heart frontwoman Ann Wilson said, “Nancy and I and the rest of Heart are thrilled to be playing with Jason and his band this summer. Awesome rock n’ roll music every night. . . miracles apt to happen any old time.” Guitarist Nancy Wilson added, “It’s not a tribute as we have the blessings of the gods themselves.”

Jason Bonham, who famously filled in for his dad , the late-John Bonham, during Led Zeppelin‘s 2007 reunion concert in London went on to say: “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. 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!”
