Peter Frampton Announces Surprise Return To The Road For ‘Never Say Never’ Tour

Peter Frampton has announced his return to the road for the Never Say Never Tour, which will kick off in June and sees the Grammy-winning guitarist, frontman, and songwriter on an extensive US itinerary into August.

Last year, Frampton headed out on the Peter Frampton Finale – The Farewell Tour, so called as he was expecting it to be his last such outing due to his diagnosis with the degenerative muscle disease Inclusion-Body Myositus (IBM). But he has been pleasantly surprised to find that he still feels able to schedule a new tour.

“At the end of every Finale Tour show I did say, ‘Never Say Never’ and I am always full of hope for the impossible,” he says. “I’m very pleased to let you know that I am feeling strong and my fingers are still roaming the fretboard. Every note I play now has more meaning and soul. I love playing live and this fighter wants to stay in the ring for as long as he can. I’m so happy to be able to see you all one more time this summer. Much love, Peter.”

Tickets for the schedule will be available from Friday (14) at peterframpton.com. The official card of the Peter Frampton: Never Say Never Tour is Citi, whose members will have access to presale tickets in select markets beginning tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10am local time until April 13 at 10pm local time, via the Citi Entertainment program. More information is at citientertainment.com.

Last year's tour by the 2014 inductee into the Musicians Hall of Fame included a sellout show back in his home city, at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Reviewing the show for Louder Than War, Simon Reed wrote: “Frampton plays a thirteen song setlist, plus the three encores. On paper, that might have seemed a little light, but with his easy conversation and these truly spectacular extended instrumental sections in some of the tunes it comes in at just under two and a half hours of inspirational music. They finish with ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps.’ It’s a fitting end to our time with one of the UK’s most iconic players.”

Frampton’s closing comments to that London audience chime happily with the new tour announcement. “Never say never,” he said. “I’m going to keep on fighting. Thank you very much everybody. This is a dream come true for me.”

The ballad song "Take Me By The Hand" (from 1979 "Where I Should Be") should have been a hit but ignored!! (audio only & album track) 


Good tune Matt but not a commercial hit.
