Peter Frampton Plays First Concerts in 3 Years

Share This:

Peter Frampton has performed his first concerts in three years with the start of the 2022 dates of the brief European edition of his farewell tour. The classic rock legend had cancelled the 2020 concerts of his finale tour of Europe and the U.K., due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 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.

For this tour, Frampton is seated throughout the concert. Watch several performances from the early November shows below.

In the news shared on his 72nd birthday (April 22, 2022), Frampton announced five November concerts across Europe. On March 28, he revealed dates in Stoke and Glasgow, and a third at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Tickets for the remaining dates are available here.

“Great news!! I am continuing my PF Finale Tour this November across the continent,” Frampton wrote at the time. “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.”

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 that first concert, he wrote, “Thank you Stoke!! What a great first night with you. Much love to you all. Never say never, right?!”

Watch him perform “Show Me the Way” in London on Nov. 8

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.

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?
