Following the success of the 2011/2012 world tour celebrating the 35th Anniversary of his multi-platinum selling live album Frampton Comes Alive!, Peter Frampton is back on the road with Frampton’s Guitar Circus. The tour will feature the Grammy-winning musician performing with friends, celebrated guitarists, and other special guests (to be announced). 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 August, he will travel through Atlanta, Washington D.C., Los Angeles and more with praised slide blues guitarist Sonny Landreth opening the show, followed by the legendary B.B. King. Each night, Frampton’s set will be recorded and subsequently sold in digital format.
Presale tickets and VIP ticket packages will be made available on Frampton’s website every Wednesday morning at 10AM local venue time. One fan per market that purchases tickets on the site will be drawn at random to win an autographed set list from the show they attend. VIP and Presale tickets can be purchased here: http://bit.ly/Framptontix.
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. Directed and produced by Pierre & François Lamoureux, the set features two February 2012 shows—one performance in Milwaukee at the Pabst Theater and another in New York City at the Beacon Theatre.
