|JBLZE dates scheduled for later this month in Australia and New Zealand will be rescheduled to May – June 2018 due to unforeseen circumstances. All purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates.
JBLZE is excited to finally bring their show “down under” in response to unprecedented demand from the legions of Zeppelin fans they lay claim to down here.
The band’s powerful live performance of Zeppelin classics team with Bonham’s historical, personal input to provide concert-goers on a unique story telling adventure. While huge backdrops display iconic art, Bonham’s own home video footage plays, including family-oriented clips from his late father’s archive.
This musical and familial link culminates in Jason’s live performance of Led Zeppelin II’s Moby Dick: on giant screens behind him, footage of dad Bonzo at Led Zep’s landmark Royal Albert Hall gig on January 9, 1970 rolls, while Jason pounds out one of the most legendary drum solos in history in real time.
“This is my story. It’s what my Dad and Led Zeppelin meant to me” says Jason, who despite his years touring with an enviable list of rock-greats, is still regularly “blown away” by the response he’s had from JBLZE audiences during the band’s 7-year lifespan.
“It’s become more than just me playing the songs. The audience are as strong a part of it as anything” he says. “You see generations of different people at the show, from kids to their grandfathers – people that saw them back in the day. It’s been a fantastic journey”
The rescheduled dates are:
Sydney – May 23 – State Theatre
Melbourne – May 24 – Palais Theatre
Perth – May 26 – Perth Concert Hall
Brisbane – May 29 – Tivoli
