What a year for Peter Frampton! The classic rock legend, who had been overlooked for decades by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, was finally selected on April 21 as a member of the Class of 2024. (The induction ceremony will take place on October 19 in Cleveland, Ohio.) On June 25, he announced dates for a September leg of his newly renamed “The Positively Thankful Tour.” The U.S. concerts follow a spring run of his “Never Say Never” tour. Tickets are available here and here. On July 10, it was announced that Frampton will headline the New York City Parks Foundation’s annual benefit concert at Summerstage. The dinner and concert event, with Patty Smyth and special guest Steve Jordan, honors Smyth’s husband, John McEnroe and his brother, Patrick McEnroe.

The 2024 tour follows a series of 2023 shows that Frampton performed that summer and again in November. When he announced the latter, he wrote, “I can’t thank you enough for your love and encouragement at every show! I’m just a glutton for enjoyment and hope you can come see us!”

Watch Frampton perform earlier in 2024

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 his April 2023 comeback 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.”

Watch him perform “Baby, I Love Your Way” from his Royal Albert Hall album

The classic rock legend, who turned 74 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 recorded and released in 2023. After 48 years, Frampton Comes Alive! remains one of the top-selling live records of all time selling over 17 million worldwide. Despite his many accomplishments, including his years with Humble Pie, Frampton had continued to be overlooked by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s induction committee until his 2024 selection. His recordings are available here.

    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.

    Hey Peter! We have two great venues for you in the Quad Cities – Vibrant Arena in Moline, Illinois (large) and The Adler Theater in Davenport, Iowa (smaller and more intimate). We’d love to see you here!!! ❤️

    The Rock’n Roll HOF is such a pathetic joke. Abba, Madonna, Grandmaster Flash, NWA, and Jay Z are in, but a true rocker and master musician like Peter Frampton isn’t? Seriously? What a travesty that operation is.
