Live in Concert: Frampton Comes Alive 35th Anniversary Tour
Peter Frampton toured his classic 1976 album Frampton Comes Alive! again in 2011. Hear a blistering set this Saturday night on Live in Concert.
It's the one with his biggest hits, but Peter Frampton was not a big star...yet. After some time in the band Humble Pie, Frampton released his first solo album in 1972 to little notice. Three more LPs followed with underwhelming success. Frampton Comes Alive! was his fourth album and the one that broke him to audiences worldwide and made him a phenomenon.
- The best-selling album of 1976
- One of the best-selling live albums in the U.S.
- Voted "Album Of The Year" in the 1976 Rolling Stone readers poll
- On Rolling Stone's "50 Greatest Live Albums of All Time" list
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of this groundbreaking album, Peter Frampton went out on tour. On the next Live in Concert, we’ll hear a legendary performance that was
captured live on July 5th, 2011, at Ravinia Festival- a beautiful outdoor theater in
the Chicago suburbs. You'll hear the hits, including a fifteen minute version of "DO You Feel Like We Do," and covers of "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," and "Black Hole Sun."
Also this week, another guitar player you may have heard of: Eric Clapton. We've got Slowhand performing "Layla" and two others from the Rainbow in London in 1973. You get The Pretenders' three biggest songs recorded in 2003 and Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey," "Red Rain" and "Sledgehammer" from his 2012 Back to Front tour.
Roll up your sleeve and cross your fingers as live in-person concerts may be returning soon. Until then, we've always got the classic shows from the vault on Live in Concert- Saturday nights at 8 on RKR.
