Led Zeppelin, Cheap Trick and Foreigner are on the bill this week on the WPDH Sound Check. Sunday night at 10pm on 101.5 WPDH and on the WPDH smart app.
This past Friday it was Foreigner and Cheap Trick plus The Jason Bonham Experience at Bethel Woods in Sullivan County. Bonham is featured on the Led Zeppelin set we are going to play. Zeppelin last performed at the 02 arena in London on December 10, 2007 as part of the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute show. Jason Bonham was filling in on drums for his late father John Bonham on this night. The show was released in November of 2012.
Cheap Trick was recorded in DeKalb, Illinois right near their hometown of Rockford. Foreigner's set, which featured original lead singer Lou Gramm, was recorded in Rochester at the War Memorial in 1985. The arena is still in use and the main tenant is the Rochester Americans a.k.a. the "Amerks" the AHL minor league affiliate of the Buffalo Sabres.
