Peter Frampton ill, announces farewell tour

Legendary singer and guitarist Peter Frampton announced that he has a rare inflammatory health condition which causes muscles to weaken.

The final U.S. Tour kicks off on June 18 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and ends on Oct. 12 in Concord, California.

“Frampton Comes Alive” (1976) is one of the best-selling live albums of all time.

In addition to his solo work, Frampton served as a session player for David Bowie (his childhood friend), Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, and Bill Wyman. He was lead guitarist and provided backing vocals on Bowie’s sublime “Glass Spider” tour in 1987.
