Crossing the Pond
Frampton is a product of the English Revolution, and he came over to America in his late-20s. He was born in Kent, England in late-April 1950, and he showed a talent for music at a young age. He taught himself to play the first instrument he ever found, which happened in his grandmother’s attic. By the time he was 12, he was fronting youthful bands fall of huge ambitions. His first forays into music were in the 1960s as part of the band Herd, a group relegated to the realms of psychedelic rock during the early days of the genre. In 1971, Frampton served as a guitarist for Humble Pie, a rock band that had potential but never quite found their stride. By 1972, he was ready to embark on a solo career – and the rest, as they say – is history.
Interesting bar trivia is the fact that Peter Frampton went to the same high school as David Bowie, his three-year elder. Back then, global music success was achieved by a flight over the Atlantic Ocean and onto US soil, ultimately culminating in a record deal typically signed in the city and featuring agents with architecturally stunning houses in the hills of Los Angeles. Although he carved out a wonderful career, success in America didn’t quite come smoothly for a young Frampton.
If announcing a “Farewell” run and going on to perform in front of audiences on upcoming tours was a crime, several dozen American musicians would be in jail. But no one wants to see that. Instead, fans of musicians who rose to prominence in the 60s, 70s and 80s are welcoming reunion tours and farewell runs, which is exactly what is happening here.
Making it Big
Peter Frampton was in his mid-20s when he released Frampton Comes Alive! It was a proclamation of his talents and his ambitions in the music industry, and one of the most recognizable, popular and best-selling records of the 1970s. Vinyl was the only way to experience music in-house back then, and Frampton Comes Alive! spun round and round on the turntables of tens of thousands of free-thinking households throughout North America during this magical period.
The singles “Baby, I Love Your Way,” “Show Me the Way,” and “Do You Feel Like We Do” all became popular songs in the final years of the 70s. Frampton has released an impressive amount of studio albums, including three in the current decade, the most recent having come in 2016. But his classic hits are the crux of his performances, and fans interested in purchasing tickets are going to hear them performed live.
The decade was a wonderful and magical space in time in which America was transitioning from the 1960s to the 1980s. The 70s gave birth to a dozen or so incredible bands and soloists who had a major influence and place in a social movement. Many of the folks who will attend upcoming Peter Frampton Finale Tour Dates go all the way back to 1970s, but offspring of original fans are sure to attend, and any other fans are welcome to purchase surprisingly affordable Peter Frampton 2019 Tour Tickets now.
2019 Finale Tour
The fun begins on June 18 in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The Robinson Performance Hall in Little Rock, Arkansas will host Frampton and his band and opening acts on the evening of June 20. From there, the tour will touch down in Alabama once before three consecutive shows at theaters and an amphitheater in Tennessee. In the final days of June and the first week of July, the tour will linger in the Northeast, including three shows in New York and culminating performances at Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion in Boston on July 9 and The Met Philadelphia on the following evening.
The first Canada show will go down on July 5 in Montréal before the tour returns to northern soil for a performance at the Roxodus Music Festival in Stayner, Ontario on July 13. The Midwest will be visited in the final week of July, highlighted by a show at the DTE Energy Music Theater in Detroit on the 25th and the McGrath Amphitheater in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on the 29th. A performance in Morrison, Colorado on July 31 of the Red Rocks Amphitheater is going to be special, if for no other reason than the venue is the perfect blend of billions of years of nature’s movements and the incredible presence and professional glory of live entertainment in the modern era.
August only features a handful of shows, but they are going to be staged in huge cities such as Minneapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City, Cleveland and Charlotte. September features a dip back into the South for performances in Miami and Tampa, as well as a jaunt back up into the Northeast for performances in New York at Madison Square Garden on September 13.
