Peter Frampton is not only a talented guitarist; he’s also a singer, songwriter and producer. He was associated with popular British rock bands from the 60s and 70s, including Humble Pie and The Herd and his solo career has boasted 16 albums in total.
However, Frampton’s international breakthrough came in the late 70s with the release of one of his solo albums Frampton Comes Alive!, which happens to be one of the best-selling live albums in the United States to date. This hard rock album emphasized Frampton’s raw talent on the guitar, and catapulted him into fame selling more than six million copies just in the United States alone. This album spawned several hits including “Show Me the Way,” “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Do You Feel Like We Do.” These songs are still essential playlist material on classic-rock radio stations around the world.
This summer, Frampton decided to put aside his solo act and bring together a collection of brilliant guitarists. The show at Meijer Gardens will include Robert Cray and Steve Cropper in order to create the best of Frampton’s Guitar Circus. Cray is a multi-talented blues guitarist who’s won Grammy Awards for contemporary blues album and other recordings. Cropper is an American singer, songwriter, producer and guitarist. He is best known for his expert guitar work in the Stax Records house band and Booker T. & The M.G.’s. He also gained fame when he became a member of the Blue Brothers band in 1978. Cropper is also ranked 36th on Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is proud to present these talented artists all in one show, Frampton’s Guitar Circus on Monday, June 17! To learn more about Frampton’s Guitar Circus visit their Facebook and Twitter pages.
