About Peter Frampton

Hummingbird in a Box, the latest work from legendary musician and Grammy Winner Peter Frampton, was released in June 24 via RED Distribution.

The music debuted in April 2013 at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center for the Arts. Two of the Cincinnati Ballet’s spring production’s segments were choreographed to existing Frampton music—with Frampton and his band performing live—while a third section featured the new composition by Frampton and Kennedy. Of the project Frampton notes, “Writing for dance was a wonderfully freeing experience. There were no boundaries. We were able to push the composing envelope,” and Kennedy furthers, “Songwriters and musicians create music to move people. This was beautiful, graceful, and instantly gratifying!”

Following a massive year of touring, including 2013’s inaugural Frampton’s Guitar Circus, Peter Frampton is back on the road. This time Frampton will set out on a three-part catch-all tour including select solo dates, a co-headlining run with Grammy-winning American rock legends The Doobie Brothers and the return of Frampton’s Guitar Circus Kicking off in August, Frampton’s Guitar Circus will feature special performances with friend and celebrated guitarist Buddy Guy as well as other surprise guests. Last year’s Guitar Circus’ company included B.B. King, Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth, Steve Cropper, Dean DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots), Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles), Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Vince Gill, Roger McGuinn (founder/lead guitarist of the BYRDS) and many more.

Frampton has kept quite busy over the past year in addition to touring. He was recently inducted in the Musicians Hall of Fame, performed on-stage at the Grammy’s with Ringo Starr and also played an integral part in the 50th anniversary celebration of the Beatles’ arrival in the U.S. by performing on CBS’ “The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute to The Beatles.” Frampton also produced Humble Pie’s Rockin’ The Fillmore deluxe compilation with original member Jerry Shirley (available now via Omnivore Recordings). Moreover, he worked with the Cincinnati Ballet last spring providing and composing new music for their April production.

Grammy winner Peter Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes collaborations with such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.



What Passengers Think

We signed up for our first RLC Cruise (VI) 15 months in advance and counted down the days the entire time. I worried myself that it couldn’t possibly meet my own mountain-high expectations after that long wait. It absolutely did. Every band that we saw played at an amazing level (and some of them are over 70!). And they cared. These groups love playing this gig. It shows.

The ship and its crew were wonderful. Food was good. We had great weather. And to top it off, the people are amazing! Such a beautiful, hip, relaxed and respectful gathering of rock fanatics. This is truly my tribe and my vibe.

Can’t make RLC VII unfortunately but we’re just waiting for the announcement for RLC VIII later this year. This cruise is rock’s best kept secret.

We were first time cruiser’s. Definitely the BEST vacation ever!!! Five of the most relaxing, stress free, days of a fun filled vacation.. We cannot say enough… the ship was clean, well managed, and beautiful.. venues were excellent. Rock Legend’s did an excellent job with the line up…loved ALL the music we could see and the goodies with the Rock Legends Cruise were very well thought out.

Thanks to everyone for the memories..hope we can do it again someday soon.
