Jason Bonham credits Led Zeppelin reunion for new Experience setlist

6/26/2013

Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience is currently out on tour with Heart and Bonham is closing the night by sitting in with Heart during their 30-minute encore of Led Zeppelin classics. Bonham told us that the release last fall of Zeppelin's 2007 reunion tour collection, Celebration Day, made him reevaluate this summer's Zeppelin Experience setlist.

Bonham told us that that the new setlist reflects songs that piqued his interest during the reunion show -- as well as tried and true favorites: "Some of the other songs, which I've now since Celebration Day came out, that I was really proud of the way I performed and played on on that event. And then some of the others I wanted to put back in that I did in the first year that I haven't done since, which, like some old favorites, like 'Lemon Song' -- great blues sound with the up-tempo part. And then, y'know, a couple of surprises in there."
