Peter Frampton is resuming his widely-acclaimed “Peter Frampton Raw: An Acoustic Tour” with additional March and April 2017 dates, including one at Champaign’s own Virginia Theatre on March 30th. Gordon Kennedy, Frampton’s longtime collaborator and co-producer of his Grammy Award-winning album Fingerprints, will be joining him on stage, alongside Frampton’s son, singer and guitarist Julian Frampton.
The new dates follow the spring 2016 release of Frampton’s latest album, Acoustic Classics, which received widespread critical acclaim from The New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, Billboard, and more.
“One of rock ‘n’ roll’s lifelong major players”—Rolling Stone
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 celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and remains one of the top-selling live records of all time.
On Acoustic Classics, Frampton brings us stripped-down versions of his hits including “Baby, I Love Your Way,” “Lines On My Face,” “Do You Feel Like I Do,” “Show Me The Way” and more.
