The Update | Led Zeppelin Evening at Packard; ‘Whose Line?’ Cast in Comedy Show

Bonham, the son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, presents a concert that celebrates his father’s life and career. The set list includes iconic hits from the band’s entire catalog.

After his father’s death in 1980, Bonham stepped in from time to time to help keep his  memory alive. In 1988, he took his father’s spot in the televised, first-ever Led Zeppelin reunion at the Atlantic Records 40th anniversary concert, which included Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones.

Later that year he went on to tour with Page and recorded the album “Outrider” with him.

Bonham represented his father when Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in January 1995.

In 2007, he played drums in the most anticipated concert of all time – the Led Zeppelin reunion at London’s O2 arena with surviving members Page, Jones and Plant.
