Need a dose of the thunder of the gods? Â Jason Bonham’s Â Led Zeppelin Experience is coming to Southern California for two shows, November 21 in Riverside at Fox Performing Arts Center and November 23 at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.
The concert celebrates the life and music of his father, legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham and features Jason Boham whose inherited the mantle on drums, Tony Catania on guitar, Micael Devin on bass, Stephen LeBlanc on keyboards and pedal steel, and lead vocals from James Dylan. The band tears through more than 20 Led Zeppelin songs with a matching light show to create a multi-media tribute to the enduring legacy of Zeppelin.
The Fox Performing Arts Center is atÂ 3801 Mission Inn AvenueÂ Riverside, CA 92501. Showtime is 8 p.m. The Pantages, one of Hollywood’s legendary former movie palaces, has long been a venue for concerts, musicals and other stage performances. Â It’s located atÂ 6233 Hollywood Boulevardâ€¨Los Angeles, CA 9002. The theater is just across the street from the Metro Rail Red Line.
The Boston Herald’s Brett Milano wrote, “The show proved as much a father-son tribute as a Zeppelin homage. John Bonham was there in spirit all night.” While Jon Bream in the Minneapolis Star Tribune said, “â€œLed Zeppelin’s magic was in effect â€¦a rousing two-hour-plus set of classics from the Zep canon at the EnCana Events Centre. With state-of-the-art lighting and effects, dazzling video treatments and a crisp, thundering sound, the JBLZE offered a set of Led Zep gems that were strikingly faithful to the originals.”
