Peter Frampton is the latest classic rock icon to announce that his next tour will be his last. A extensive arena and amphitheater farewell tour – which will feature Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening as the opening act most nights – kicks off June 18th at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma and wraps up October 12th at the Concord Pavilion in San Francisco, California.

Frampton first came to fame as the frontman of the Sixties psychedelic band the Herd and then as the guitarist in the early Seventies rock band Humble Pie. He went solo in 1972, but struggled to find a mass audience until his 1976 live album Frampton Comes Alive! hit Number One on the album charts and produced the massive hit singles “Show Me the Way,” “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Do You Feel Like We Do.”

The success was relatively short-lived since he followed it up with the underwhelming I’m In You in 1977 and the notoriously awful Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band movie musical in 1978. By the dawn of MTV in 1981 he was dismissed as a has-been by much of the industry. Things took a turn in 1987 when his childhood friend David Bowie invited him to play guitar on his LP Never Let Me Down and the supporting Glass Spider tour. It put Frampton back in front of a huge audience and helped him slowly re-start his solo career. And while many of his new albums failed to chart, his concerts began drawing large crowds to his shows again. In 2011, he re-released Frampton Comes Alive! as a deluxe edition and played it straight tour on a long tour.
