London, June 15 (ANI): Jason Bonham, the son of Led Zeppelin’s original drummer John Bonham, has admitted that he would tour with Led Zeppelin in a heartbeat.

Bonham took over his late father’s drum seat when the band reformed for a one off reunion show in London last year.

Since then, it has been rumoured the band will bow to fan pressure and announce some more dates.

Bonham said: “It’s up to them but if it was up to me, I’d love to.”

The concert, at the O2 Arena, was watched by 20,000 fans, although over a million people registered for tickets for the event.

It was the first time in twelve years that founding members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones had performed together.

“It was a fantastic night, it was emotional, it was everything I wanted, and hoped it would be, BBC quoted Bonham, as telling Newsbeat.

“I knew I could do it, but could I do it when it needed to be done, with the nerves and everything?

“It was phenomenal, he added.

Bonham, who said the reunion show was better than I could have imagined, said he hoped to be put into the loop regarding more shows.

“My fingers are crossed and I would do it in a heartbeat,” he said. (ANI)
