Led Zeppelin’s mix of blues and rock laid the roots for heavy metal and inspired a multitude of musicians. Jason Bonham, son of the band’s late drummer, John Bonham, is keeping Zeppelin’s legacy and music alive with his “Led Zeppelin Experience.”
This multimedia show brings Zeppelin fans some of this legendary band’s greatest songs performed live. In addition to admirable recreations of Zeppelin’s music, Bonham enhances this experience with home movies featuring his late father. The performance reaches an apex with a rendition of “Moby Dick” that features a drum collaboration between Bonham and his father — he performs live, his father onscreen.
Over the past couple of decades, rumors of a reunion have persisted — ideally consisting of the three surviving members with Jason Bonham on drums — but that has yet to happen … making this show a must for any Zeppelin fan.
