Peter Frampton's farewell tour and new album

Peter Frampton's farewell tour has begun. The singer/guitarist marked a first in his long and distinguished career as All Blues, Frampton's first-ever blues album with Peter Frampton Band, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Albums Chart in the U.S. The new collection, released via UMe, also is his best overall sales numbers and chart positions since the release of Fingerprints in 2006. All Blues is available HERE.

All Blues features Frampton and his longtime touring band made up of Adam Lester (guitar/vocals), Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums) doing some of Frampton’s favorite blues classics like “Can’t Judge A Book By Its Cover,” “She Caught The Katy,” “The Thrill Is Gone,” “I Just Want To Make Love To You,” and “Georgia On My Mind.” It features collaborations with Kim Wilson, Larry Carlton, Sonny Landreth and Steve Morse.

The vinyl edition will be available as a double LP and also as a limited edition translucent blue color pressing on Aug. 16 exclusively at The double LP includes the bonus track “I Feel So Good” (written by Big Bill Broonzy, originally performed by Muddy Waters).

After the current jaunt, Frampton will retire from regular touring at the end of this year due to his diagnosis of the autoimmune disease Inclusion Body Myositis. IBM is a progressive muscle disorder characterized by muscle inflammation, weakness and atrophy.

Frampton discussed his diagnosis with CBS “This Morning: Saturday,” watch the segment HERE, and also recently discussed on the Consequence of Sound Podcast, listen HERE.

The tour will feature the Peter Frampton Band, plus Steve Mackey on bass. Special guests include Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, as well as Julian Frampton Band on the west coast stops.
