(New Bedford, MA) – Following his summer co-headlining run with American rock legends Cheap Trick, Grammy-award winning rock guitarist Peter Frampton arrives at The Zeiterion Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, October 13, 8:00pm, with his “Peter Frampton Raw, An Acoustic Tour.” He performed to a sold-out crowd at The Z in 2014 and now he returns with his first acoustic-only-tour. He’ll be on stage with long-time collaborator Gordon Kennedy, and added special guest, Frampton’s son, singer and guitarist Julian Frampton. Tickets start at $49 and are available online at www.zeiterion.org, by calling The Z Box Office at (508) 994-2900.
Frampton notes, “This is a first for me and I’m very excited about doing a whole show acoustically I couldn’t do it without the help of, my writing partner of fifteen years, Gordon Kennedy who will be joining me for these shows. I’m performing the songs just as I wrote them on acoustic guitar or piano. I have done a lot of shows that include two or three acoustic solo pieces and I always enjoy the way it draws the audience and me closer together.”
Peter Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes collaborations with such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
