MARYMORE PARK CONCERT SERIES: FRAMPTON TO TOUR WITH CHEAP TRICK!

MARYMORE PARK CONCERT SERIES: FRAMPTON TO TOUR WITH CHEAP TRICK!

Following another year of non-stop touring including select solo performances, dates with The Doobie Brothers and the return of Frampton’s Guitar Circus, Grammy Award winner Peter Frampton is back on the road—this time co-headlining with American rock legends Cheap Trick! The tour will make a stop in the Pacific Northwest as a part of Maymore Parks summer concert series on August 28th.

“I’ve always loved Cheap Trick and their sound. Great band, great people! We played one show together last year and had so much fun we decided to do a whole tour together,” Frampton explains.

With over 5,000 performances spanning four decades and 20 million records sold worldwide, Cheap Trick is undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. The band was formed in 1974 and while it has evolved throughout the years, Cheap Trick has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as “I Want You To Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and “Surrender” have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time.

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. Moreover, Frampton’s latest work, Hummingbird in a Box, which was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, is available via RED Distribution. Rolling Stone explains, “…Hummingbird is fresh-sounding, sophisticated stuff; Frampton plays and sings as well as ever and, to his credit, his continually looking forward—rather than backward, for there’s quite a story there to be sure—only solidifies his status as one of rock ‘n’ roll’s lifelong major players. Excellent stuff here.”
