Peter Frampton in Long Beach March 14

Due to the 2011 success of the 35th Anniversary of Peter Frampton’s multi-platinum selling live album Frampton Comes Alive!, the tour has been extended into 2012. As part of the celebration Frampton will perform March 14 at the at the Long Beach Terrace Theater at 8:00 PM. This show is a production of Nederlander Concerts.

The three-hour show features a complete performance of Frampton Comes Alive! that the Montreal Gazette describes as “a highly-spirited and expertly-played recreation of the live album.” Frampton will also perform other highlights from his catalog, including his Grammy® Award-winning instrumental album and 2006’s Fingerprints.

In regard to the Frampton Comes Alive! tour, the Los Angeles Times says, “…the British virtuoso is still making sweet music” while the Santa Barbara Independent describes Frampton’s set as “pleasing those who came to hear the hits and impressing the musicians in the crowd with his still-smoking guitar chops.”

Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British teen band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
