Peter Frampton Releases Royal Albert Hall Concert Album

Share This:

Peter Frampton’s 2022 homecoming concert in London has been released as a live album. Peter Frampton at Royal Albert Hall, featuring such favorites as “Something’s Happening” and “Do You Feel Like We Do?” arrived on September 1, 2023, via UMe. Watch the official clips of “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Show Me the Way,” and listen to several others, below.

The concert was part of a brief European tour representing his first concerts in three years. The classic rock legend had cancelled the 2020 concerts due to the Covid-19 pandemic, of what was originally billed as his finale tour of Europe and the U.K. Frampton had completed the North American edition in October 2019 and at the time they were thought to be his final dates. Then in Dec. 2019, news arrived of five 2020 shows in the U.K. as well as concerts in many European countries, though they were postponed to 2022.

“Great news!! I am continuing my PF Finale Tour across the continent,” Frampton wrote at the time of the 2022 European and U.K. announcement. “My band and I have been chomping at the bit to play and can’t wait to keep our promise to play for you again. Thanks for your patience.”

On April 11, 2023, came the surprising news that Frampton would return with his “Never Say Never” 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,” said Frampton in the 2023 tour announcement. “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.” A new leg begins in November. Tickets are available here and here.

Frampton had announced the original cancellation of the Europe/U.K. 2020 dates on his Facebook page on April 21, 2020, writing, “I am so sorry to have to announce that at this time because of the COVID-19 virus my UK/EU tour has now been cancelled. All ticket holders should be in touch with their point of purchase for refunds. I couldn’t be more disappointed. My apologies to all.”

After the 2022 tour’s first concert, he wrote, “Thank you Stoke!! What a great first night with you. Much love to you all. Never say never, right?!”

On Feb. 21, 2019, a few months before he turned 69, Frampton revealed in an interview that aired on CBS This Morning: Saturday that he has a rare and incurable muscular disease that causes the muscles to weaken slowly.

The North American edition of Finale—The Farewell Tour began June 18, 2019 in Tulsa, Okla. Its final date was Oct. 12 in Concord, Calif., near San Francisco.

He published the 304-page Do You Feel Like I Do?: A Memoir in 2019, via Hachette Books.

    Peter Frampton’s music has been a part of my life since I was a teenager. Today at 58 years old his Live CD is one my all-time favorites!

    the timing of Alive And how he solidified and fulfilled everyone’s fantasy of being a rock guitar star Never has there been an album with so many crystal clear sweet solos Frampton is extremely underrated. Every guitar great is jealous but would never admit it. It was so successful that he was basically punished for being too popular.

    I saw Peter Frampton with Gary Wright at the Miami baseball stadium back in 1976 and it was one of the best shows ever. I think it really sucks that the rock & roll hall of fame has not welcomed him. They notice performers that are not rock musicians but not him?

    I’m planning on traveling from Australia to see Peter before he retires. Looks like I’m heading to Netherlands in Jun 21 unless anyone has any other suggestions?
