After a successful summer tour, Peter Frampton has extended his “FCA 35″ tour into the winter months of 2012. The tour celebrating the 35th anniversary of his seminal live album, Frampton Comes Alive!, will swing through Massachusetts for three shows next month.
Frampton will first perform at the Lynn Memorial Auditorium on Friday, February 3. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $37 to $67, are now on sale through the venue’s box office and website. The following night, he’ll make his way to Worcester for a show at the Hanover Theatre. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $42 to $68, are now on sale through the venue’s box office and website.
The veteran English rocker will also perform at the Zeiterion Theatre in New Bedford on Tuesday, February 14. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $49 to $75, are now on sale through the venue’s box office and website.
For the tour, Frampton is promising a three hour show, complete with full performance of Frampton Comes Alive! in its entirety. The 1976 live album was major breakthrough for the English guitar virtuoso. “Show Me the Way”, “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Do You Feel Like We Do” were all released as singles and the album is one of the best-selling live albums of all time. Fans can also expect to hear additional favorites from throughout his catalog, as well as material off his most recent releases, 2010′s Thank You Mr. Churchill and the 2006 Grammy Award-wining instrumental album Fingerprints. Frampton has also been recording each of the shows on his tour for fans to later purchase in either MP3 downloads or CD sets on his website.
In related news, Frampton was recently reunited with his long-lost guitar that was discovered 32 years after its disappearance in a plane crash. In 1980, a cargo plane carrying Frampton’s equipment for an upcoming show in Panama crashed, supposedly destroying all of the instruments on board including his cherished 1954 Gibson Les Paul. However, someone pulled the guitar from the wreckage and sold it to a musician on the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao. Thanks to the work of two dedicated fans, Frampton was reunited with the guitar last month in Nashville.
