Heart, one of the newest bands to be enshrined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will play the First Niagara Pavilion on July 21 with Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience.

The show will end with Heart and Bonham teaming up for a 30-minute tribute to Led Zeppelin.

Over the past few years, Heart has played Stage AE and the former Amphitheatre at Station Square, so this is a jump in size for the Wilson sisters Ann and Nancy.

They met Bonham, son of the late Led Zep drummer John Bonham, at the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to Led Zeppelin in December.

"Nancy and I and the rest of Heart are thrilled to be playing with Jason and his band this summer," Ann said in a statement. "Awesome rock 'n' roll music every night ... miracles apt to happen any old time."

Nancy added, "It's not a tribute as we have the blessings of the gods themselves."

A limited number of VIP experience packages with premium seating, exclusive music and merchandise, and a meet-and-greet with Ann and Nancy will be available for all shows. For details visit: www.vipnation.com.

Heart, best known for the rock classics "Barracuda," "Crazy on You" and "Magic Man," will be inducted into Hall of Fame on April 18. The broadcast will be on HBO on May 18.
