Legendary rock performer and Grammy-winner Peter Frampton will make his debut performance at the Honeywell Center at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 14 on the Ford Theater stage. Corporate Sponsorship for this concert is provided by Market Street Grill.
Peter Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. Frampton is best known for such hits as “Show Me the Way,” “Baby, I Love Your Way,” “Do You Feel Like We Do,” and “I’m in You,” which remain staples on classic-rock radio.
“Hummingbird in a Box,” Frampton’s most recent album, was released in 2014 via RED Distribution. The new music was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, featuring seven original guitar pieces in Frampton’s virtuosic stylings. Frampton composed all songs on the mini-album along with Gordon Kennedy, who also co-produced the recording. The two previously teamed up for “Fingerprints,” which garnered them both a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album. In February of that same year, Frampton was one of several musicians to participate in The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles tribute to The Beatles on the 50th anniversary of their first appearance on American television.
Frampton discovered his talent for music early in his life. At the age of 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for the 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 and many others.
