The son of the late, legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham will commemorate the 30th anniversary of his father’s death with a tribute tour across North America this fall.

Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience launches October 8 at EnCana Event Centre in Dawson Creek, BC, and concludes November 29 at the Centre for Performing Arts in Vancouver, BC. The musician has followed in his father’s footsteps as a drummer, even playing for Led Zeppelin’s one-off reunion concert at London’s O2 Arena in 2007.

The 31-date itinerary splits its time between U.S. and Canadian markets. National stops include October 20 at Riverside Theatre in Milwaukee, WI; November 2 at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA; and November 8 at the Nokia Theatre in New York, NY. North of the border, highlighted gigs include October 17 at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, MB, and October 29 at the Sony Centre for Performing Arts in Toronto, ON.

Public ticket sales for the tour begin August 20 in select. Ticket prices vary widely from event to event, though several dates have ducats beginning in the $40 to $60 range, according to current Ticketmaster.com event listings. More details about the tour and its ticketing are available on the official Led Zeppelin Experience site.

In a recent interview with Fox News, Bonham revealed that the tour will hinge around his personal recollections of his father and the other original Zeppelin members. “When I do a certain song, there’s a reason for it, there’s a story behind it,” Bonham explained in the segment. “My first memories as a child are of Led Zeppelin because they’ve been a part of my life.”

Bonham’s backing band for the venture has not been announced. In his segment on Fox, the drummer noted that he doesn’t want concert-goers to have any preconceived notions of what the live band will sound like.
