Today’s Blimp Time-Hop
He was born in South London on April 22,1950. Happy 68th Birthday to the great Peter Frampton! This legendary guitarist was in the bands the Herd and Humble Pie, but found his greatest success as a solo artist with his international smash Frampton Comes Alive. That historic live album has sold more than 6 million copies, in the US alone.
Frampton will bring his amazing tenor voice and signature Talkbox guitar back to Blimpville this summer. He’s at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor with the Steve Miller Band on July 5th!
Frampton has 'Come Alive' in Maine on 5 occasions over the years. New Hampshire wins with 9 Peter Frampton shows since 1999. His first appearance in Maine was at Lewiston's Central Maine Youth Center in 1975.
The last trips to Blimpville were in the summer of 2017 at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion and at the Maine State Pier in 2015. He opened and closed his set with the same songs 1975 as he did 40 years later in 2015. Coincidence?
