Performer Info

Peter Frampton: With a career spanning forty years and including sold-out tour dates and over a dozen hit albums, Peter Frampton has earned a place as a rock icon. After rising to fame with the groups The Herd and Humble Pie, Frampton became infamous through acclaimed tour dates and his masterful use of the talk box. Arguably his most successful and groundbreaking album was 1976's Frampton Comes Alive!, which is celebrating a 35th anniversary this year. In honor of the album's lasting legacy, Peter Frampton has a number of tour dates in 2011 where he'll play the album in its entirety to the delight of huge audiences.

Peter Frampton's interest in music began at a young age, becoming the lead singer and guitarist for The Herd at the age of 16. The popularity made Frampton a teen idol, but he left the group two years later and formed Humble Pie with Small Faces alum Steve Marriott. Frampton recorded five albums and performed numerous tour dates with Humble Pie before leaving to pursue a solo career in 1971. His first few solo albums were well received, scoring a hit with "Do You Feel Like We Do." It was Frampton in 1975 that brought the artist solo success with "Show Me the Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way", as well as showcasing his expert guitar work. It wasn't until these hit singles were featured on the double live album, Frampton Comes Alive!, that Peter Frampton was launched into superstardom

Frampton has continued to release great albums, but recognizes his fans' love for Frampton Comes Alive!. Peter Frampton's kindness towards his fans has led to live performances of the album on 2011 tour dates, which began on July 1. The tour will visit the US, Canada, UK, and a few European nations before concluding on November 23. Don't miss this opportunity to hear Frampton Comes Alive on these 35th anniversary tour dates in 2011.
