Frampton Celebrates 35 Years
Live Nation will present Peter Frampton’s Frampton Comes Alive 35! Tour at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Thursday, February 16 at 8 p.m. Due to the success of the 2011 world tour celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Peter Frampton’s multi-platinum selling live album Frampton Comes Alive!, the tour was extended into 2012 to include stops in NYC at the Beacon Theatre (2/18) and at Westbury (2/16). The threehour show features a complete performance of Frampton Comes Alive! that the Montreal Gazette describes as “a highly-spirited and expertlyplayed recreation of the live album.”
Frampton will also perform other highlights from his catalog, including his Grammy® Award-winning instrumental album, 2006’s Fingerprints. Of the tour the Los Angeles Times says “…the British virtuoso is still making sweet music” while the Santa Barbara Independent describes Frampton’s set as “pleasing those who came to hear the hits and impressing the musicians in the crowd with his still-smoking guitar chops.”
Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was the lead singer and guitarist for British teen band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, the seminal rock act Humble Pie whose biggest hit was “I Don’t Need No Doctor.” Frampton released four studio albums between 1972 and 1975. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive! is one of the top-selliing live records of all time. Released in 1976 the album featured live versions of “Baby I Love Your Way,” “Do You Feel Like We Do” and “Show Me the Way.” His most recent studio album was the critically acclaimed, Thank You Mr. Churchill.
