Peter Frampton Tickets for Sale

Peter Frampton started out with British pop-rockers the Herd in the mid-1960s before moving on to a harder sound with UK blues-rock legends Humble Pie. Singer/guitarist/songwriter Frampton started a solo career in the '70s that didn't really take off until he released a concert recording in 1976. His massive hit double album FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE! almost single-handedly re-popularized the live- album format for other rockers, and made the curly-haired singer a rock god and pinup boy overnight. Naturally, he could never equal that record's runaway success, but Frampton never stopped working. He even took a spot in David Bowie's band for a while in the '80s, ever the guitarist's guitarist.

Peter Frampton (born April 22, 1950) is a British musician, best known today for his solo work in the mid-1970s as an "arena rocker". He originally became famous, however, as a member of The Herd and became a teen idol in Britain. He then worked with Steve Marriott (of the Small Faces) in Humble Pie, as well as on albums by Harry Nilsson, Jerry Lee Lewis, and George Harrison. His solo debut was 1972's Wind of Change.

Frampton's solo breakthrough was the six-times platinum Frampton Comes Alive! (1976), which included "Do You Feel Like We Do", "Baby, I Love Your Way" and "Show Me the Way". After his follow-up, I'm in You, was released, Frampton was involved in a serious car crash in the Bahamas. Upon his recovery, Frampton played a part in the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band film, which failed spectacularly. In the 1980s, Frampton returned to recording, though he has never been able to top the charts since. His latest album is Now, and he embarked on a tour with Styx to support that album.

After the September 11, 2001 attacks, Frampton decided to become a United States citizen. He was active in the U.S. presidential election, 2004 in support of John Kerry. Currently he is recording an instrumental album which will feature special guests such as members of Pearl Jam.

Frampton seemed increasingly directionless as the '80s dawned. He cut his hair prior to the release of 1981's Breaking All the Rules, but the new image failed to send it higher than the lower reaches of the Top 50. The following year's The Art of Control was an unequivocal flop, and Frampton retreated from the music business for several years. He returned on Virgin in 1986 with Premonition, and though it wasn't a smash hit, he did get substantial rock radio airplay for the cut "Lying." The following year, Frampton played on onetime schoolmate David Bowie's Never Let Me Down album and accompanying tour. He recorded another new album, When All the Pieces Fit, for Atlantic in 1989, and had been planning a reunion with Steve Marriott not long before Marriott's tragic death in a 1991 house fire. Frampton subsequently started touring again, and cut an eponymous album for Relativity in 1994 that was later reissued by Sony Legacy. The following year, he issued the newly recorded live album, Frampton Comes Alive II, on IRS. During the late '90s, he recorded and toured with Bill Wyman & the Rhythm Kings and Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band. Frampton's first DVD, Live in Detroit, a newly recorded concert that was also issued on CD by CMC International, was released in 2000.
