Singer's illness prompts postponement of Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience shows

Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin reunion O2 Arena-Ross Halfin

Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience has postponed Friday night’s show at the Greek Theatre and several other dates because singer James Dylan is ill.

The Greek show has been rescheduled for Oct. 14. Other affected shows include a stop Saturday in Las Vegas, which has been moved to Oct. 15.

Dates that had been slated in Sacramento and Napa Valley earlier this week are still being rescheduled.

Tickets from the originally scheduled shows will be honored at the new dates, or ticket buyers can get refunds at the point of purchase.

Bonham put the act together after filling in for his father, John Bonham, at Led Zeppelin reunion concerts in London in 2007. John Bonham died in 1980, when Jason was 14.

In the Led Zeppelin experience show, Bonham’s band has been playing upwards of two dozen songs from the group's catalog. The Bonham band's 38-city North American tour was to conclude in Las Vegas this weekend.
