Peter Frampton has announced a surprising return to touring with his “Never Say Never” tour. The U.S. run, announced today (April 11, 2023), begins in June and continues through August. Citi is the official card of the tour. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets in select markets beginning April 12 at 10 a.m. local time until April 13 at 10 p.m. local time. Tickets will be available to the general public on April 14 here.

In 2019, after the Grammy Award-winning guitarist revealed that he had a rare and incurable muscular disease that causes the muscles to weaken slowly, he played what he described as a farewell tour of the U.S. It was thought at the time that that was, indeed, the end of his touring days. Best Classic Bands even wrote a recap of the final show, headlined, “Thank You, Peter Frampton.” Later that year, he announced a short, European farewell edition for 2020. The tour was delayed due to the pandemic, but ultimately took place in 2022.

“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 April 11 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.”

The classic rock legend, who turns 73 on April 22, won a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album for Fingerprints in 2007. In 2020 Frampton was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and published his autobiography, Do You Feel Like I Do?: A Memoir. In November 2022, Frampton performed a sold-out show at London’s Royal Albert Hall that was filmed and is currently airing on PBS as part of their Pledge Drive. Most recently, Frampton announced Intervention Records will release Frampton@50, a numbered limited-edition vinyl box set, on July 28, featuring Frampton’s essential 1972-1975 studio releases Wind of Change, Frampton’s Camel and Frampton. After 47 years, Frampton Comes Alive! remains one of the top-selling live records of all time selling over 17 million worldwide. Despite his accomplishments, including his years with Humble Pie, Frampton continues to be overlooked by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s induction committee.

    Vegas, but no Phoenix? We have a/c here, too! Don’t let that 110 heat throw you off. It’s probably good for your circulation, Peter.
