Heart touring with Bonham’s tribute to his father – Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham –  is a natural for both bands.  During their days playing Seattle nightclubs during the early 70s, Heart’s blazing renditions of Led Zeppelin tunes amazed even the hipper-than-thou Zep fans.  In 2012, The Wilsons performed with Bonham when Led Zeppelin’s surviving members – Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones – were celebrated at the Kennedy Center Honors.

And the spirit of Led Zeppelin will be evident on the “Heartbreaker Tour” with Heart and Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience will close each night with a special thirty-minute tribute to the band that rocked the world.

“Nancy and I and the rest of Heart are thrilled to be playing with Jason and his band this summer,” Ann Wilson said.  “Awesome rock ’n’ roll music every night … miracles apt to happen any old time.”

Beginning in Florida in mid-June, the summer run will take place under the stars with stops including familiar seasonal venues such as Ohio’s Blossom Music Center, Michigan’s DTE Energy Music Theatre and Southern California’s Greek Theatre.

By the time the first show rolls around, Heart will be a freshly minted member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  The band will be inducted during a ceremony in Los Angeles April 18.
