Following his critically acclaimed new release Thank You Mr Churchill, Frampton is currently on a world tour celebrating his multi-platinum-selling live recording Frampton Comes Alive!, performing the legendary album in its entirety.
The three-hour show features a complete performance of Frampton Comes Alive! that the Montreal Gazette describes as "a highly-spirited and expertly-played recreation of the live album."
Frampton also performs other highlights from his catalog, including his Grammy® Award-winning instrumental album, 2006's Fingerprints.
Santa Barbara Independent describes Frampton's set as "pleasing those who came to hear the hits and impressing the musicians in the crowd with his still-smoking guitar chops."
