Peter Frampton is back on the road, this time performing an acoustic only set for the first time ever. Gordon Kennedy, Frampton’s longtime collaborator and co-producer of his GRAMMY Award-winning album Fingerprints, will join him on tour as well as an added special guest, Frampton’s son, singer and guitarist Julian Frampton.


Frampton notes, “This is a first for me and I’m very excited about doing a whole show acoustically.  I couldn’t do it without the help of my writing partner of fifteen years, Gordon Kennedy who will be joining me for these shows. I see this show being me performing the songs just as I wrote them on acoustic guitar

or piano. I have done a lot of shows including 2 or 3 acoustic solo pieces and always enjoy the way it draws the audience and myself closer together.”


Peter Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes collaborations with such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive! is one of the top-selling live records of all time.


Moreover, Frampton’s latest work, Hummingbird in a Box, which was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, is available via RED Distribution. Rolling Stone explains, “…Hummingbird is fresh-sounding, sophisticated stuff; Frampton plays and sings as well as ever and, to his credit, his continually looking forward—rather than backward, for there’s quite a story there to be sure—only solidifies his status as one of rock ‘n’ roll’s lifelong major players. Excellent stuff here.”
