“Frampton’s musical journey is a testament to his unparalleled talent and versatility, and last night its culmination was on full display.”
“Despite the medical setbacks he’s faced in recent years, it’s obvious that Frampton still has a lot of fight left in him and that he’s not ready to hang up his guitar just yet.”
“It was a performance that left no soul untouched.”
“Iconic Brit shows us the way to keep playing with grace, humor, and some damn fine music.”
“In an awe-inspiring evening flooded with timeless songs, Frampton – who really doesn’t have anything to prove at this point – shows us the way and demonstrates once again why he’s undeniably one of rock’s finest guitarists; one who defies the odds and continues to thrill audiences, while still very much at the top of his game.”
“Frampton is alive on stage again.”
29 AUGUST 2023 (TORONTO, ON) — Following his nationwide run of summer tour dates, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Peter Frampton will continue the Never Say Never Tour with a string of November shows. The tour kicks off in Louisville, Kentucky at The Louisville Palace and includes stops at Austin, Texas’s Moody Theater, Birmingham, Alabama’s BJCC Concert Hall, Nashville, Tennessee’s Ryman Auditorium and more.
“I wanted to thank all who came to the Never Say Never tour this summer. I can’t thank you enough for your love and encouragement at every show!” says Frampton. “*Breaking news* I am going to be continuing the tour in November. I’m just a glutton for enjoyment and hope you can come see us.”
Tickets will be available at 10 A.M. local time on Friday, September 1 at peterframpton.com. See below for full tour routing.
The upcoming performances add to yet another landmark year for Frampton, whose spring tour announcement was unexpected by fans. The legendary musician announced a farewell tour four years ago after a diagnosis of the degenerative disease inclusion-body myositis, but with the aptly named Never Say Never Tour, Frampton is back, appearing on stages across America.
“At the end of every Finale Tour show I did say, ‘Never Say Never’ and I am always full of hope for the impossible. 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. Much love, Peter.”
