Frampton comes here to play 'Comes Alive'

frampton.jpgframptonalbum.jpgClassic rock fans may not get to admire Peter Frampton's flowing mane anymore, but they do get  a tour, which stops at Ruth Eckerd Hall in October, where he plays the legendary Frampton Comes Alive! album in its entirety.

The balding '70s guitar icon, now 61, is basking in new appreciation for his musicianship, having finally  won his first Grammy in 2007 for his instrumental album, Fingertips.

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of FM radio's 1976 prom king album,  Frampton will put on a three-hour show with a complete performance of Frampton Comes Alive! along with highlights from Frampton’s catalog.

Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British teen band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His fifth solo album, Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.

Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday at noon.

The show will be Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. at  Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 North McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.
