PETER FRAMPTON 'GUITAR CIRCUS' TOUR TAKING SHAPE

3/8/2013

Peter Frampton posted an announcement on Facebook about his upcoming summer tour, which is being dubbed "Frampton's Guitar Circus." The post read: "'Frampton's Guitar Circus' tour is just around the corner! There will be some very special guests joining Peter on stage on this tour including Robert Cray in May and June, and B.B. King and Sonny Landreth . . . in August."

Frampton also took time to post a tribute for Ten Years After guitarist Alvin Lee, who died on Wednesday (March 6th) at the age of 68, writing, "I still can't believe we've lost Alvin Lee. My day went into slow motion after I heard this. Been talking to friends about times we all spent together. It's very sad. He was a wonderful person and an amazing guitar player."

Although these days, Frampton is more than happy to celebrate his Comes Alive! era, he recalled a time when it was literally the last thing he wanted to do: "I remember being on one tour in '77 when I did not wanna go on. I had given it my all. I didn't want to play anymore -- for the moment. That's when I should've -- even before I'm In You was even thought of -- I should've taken two, three years off before I even attempted to make another record. But no one knew at that time; no one had an experience with a big seller like that. Now you realize; you reach that many people -- you can wait a couple of years, people aren't gonna forget you. But it was like, 'Let's take advantage of the situation financially, y'know?'"

Peter Frampton tour dates (subject to change):

April 26, 27 - Cincinnati, OH - Aronoff Center For The Arts (with the Cincinnati Ballet)
August 11 - Vienna, VA - Filene Center at Wolf Trap
August 20 - Morrison, CO - Red Rocks Amphitheater
