Peter Frampton Announces Acoustic Tour Dates
Peter Frampton fans will have a chance to see him in a more intimate musical setting this fall.
Frampton has scheduled what's being billed as his first-ever completely acoustic tour, starting Oct. 8 in Nashville and continuing through Oct. 24 in Van Wert, Ohio. He'll be joined on his trek by longtime collaborator Gordon Kennedy as well as his son, singer-guitarist Julian Frampton.
"This is a first for me and I’m very excited about doing a whole show acoustically," enthuses Frampton in a press release. "I couldn’t do it without the help of my writing partner of 15 years, Gordon Kennedy, who will be joining me for these shows. I see this show being ‘me’ performing the songs just as I wrote them on acoustic guitar or piano. I have done a lot of shows including two or three acoustic solo pieces and always enjoy the way it draws the audience and myself closer together."
"I couldn't be more ecstatic about the opportunity to support a legend while simultaneously spending time with family," adds Julian. "Two birds, one stone."
Frampton's fall dates come on the heels of a string of co-headlining shows with Cheap Trick, and find him working in support of his most recent studio release, Hummingbird in a Box: Songs for a Ballet. Check out the complete list of shows below.
