Arena rocker Peter Frampton makes his way to the intimate The Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort on Friday, September 18, 2009 at 9:00 p.m.
Peter Frampton has been a legend on the rock scene as far back as the late ’60s and early ’70s when he performed with bands like Herd and Humble Pie. His debut solo album Wind of Change was released in 1972 followed by Frampton in 1975 which reached #32 on the U.S. charts and included career defining hits “Show Me The Way” and “Do You Feel Like We Do.”
Frampton Comes Alive was released in 1976 and quickly became the most well-known Frampton album featuring hits like “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Show Me The Way.” “Do You Feel Like We Do” was also featured on this album and showcased his famous talk box guitar effect. It became the largest selling live album of its time and went multi-platinum selling more than 6 million copies in the U.S. and 16 million worldwide.
Frampton released his latest album Fingerprints, an amazing 14-tune collection of guitar genius that combines musical influences from R&B and rock to blues-infused country and jazz. In a surprising move to his fans Frampton decided to focus on instrumentals for this album instead of his vocals. Fingerprints landed him the 2007 Grammy award for Best Pop Instrumental Album and featured artists from bands such as Pearl Jam, The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers and many more.
