Following the success of the 2011/2012 world tour celebrating the 35th Anniversary of his multi-platinum live album Frampton Comes Alive!, Peter Frampton is back on the road with Frampton’s Guitar Circus. Each night, Frampton’s set will be recorded and subsequently sold in digital format.

Kicking off in May, Frampton will perform several dates with five-time Grammy Award winner Robert Cray including Nashville, New York City and Austin. In July, guitarist/vocalist/producer Steve Lukather and praised blues artist Kenny Wayne Shepherd will open the show—performing in cities including San Antonio and Minneapolis. Then in August, Frampton will travel through Atlanta, Washington D.C., Los Angeles and more with acclaimed slide blues guitarist Sonny Landreth opening the show, followed by the legendary B.B. King.

The tour will feature the Grammy-winning musician performing with friends, celebrated guitarists and other special guests including Steve Cropper, Dean DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots), Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles), Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Vince Gill, David Hidalgo (Los Lobos), Davy Knowles, Robert McGuinn (founder/lead guitarist of the BYRDS), Richard Thompson, Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Vinnie Moore (UFO) and Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick). VIP ticket packages, including preferred seating and exclusive merchandise, will be available for purchase. For details, please visit

Frampton’s infectious live performance has been praised by Los Angeles Times noting “…the British virtuoso is still making sweet music.” St. Louis Post Dispatch furthers the acclaim by admiring “the purity of the musicianship from Frampton,” while The Herald Scotland lauds the guitarist explaining, “he delivered, with practiced ease, everything from jazz-inflected introductions to fierce, irresistible solos.”

FCA! 35 Tour: An Evening With Peter Frampton, a new live 2DVD/Blu-ray, and The Best Of FCA! 35 Tour 3CD set is available now via Eagle Rock Entertainment. He performed the best selling live album in its entirety, along with other selections from his Grammy-winning career.

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 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.
