Jason Bonham to perform at Drumfest in U.K.; date follows four other June/July appearances

Jason Bonham has been announced as one of the participants at Drumfest, to be held July 12 in Birmingham, England.

The day-long event comprises one part of the National Rock and Pop Festival '09, along with Guitarfest on July 11 and Stick It to Multiple Sclerosis on July 13.

Alongside Bonham, another big name appearing at Drumfest is Carmine Appice. As drummer for the Vanilla Fudge, he became a great friend of John Bonham's during Led Zeppelin's earliest concerts in North America.

The Drumfest Web site says, "The biggest names in drums will be performing on the main stage from 12am until 5pm." Other drummers announced for the event are Gregg Bissonette, JoJo Mayer, and Simon Phillips of Toto.

This summer date of Jason Bonham's takes place after his other scheduled performances in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. This includes one with Slash, Ozzy Osbourne and Ronnie Wood at the Quart Festival in Norway on June 30, and also three dates with the band Airrace on June 19, July 4 and July 5, all in England.
