Blimp Time-Hop: Happy Birthday Peter Frampton
He was born in South London on April 22,1950. This was the actual date in history that "Frampton Comes Alive". Happy 69th Birthday to the great Peter Frampton!
Early on in his career, the legendary guitarist was in the bands the Herd and Humble Pie. However, he found his greatest success as a solo artist with his international smash Frampton Comes Alive in 1976. That historic live album has sold well over 6 million copies in the US alone.
Watch the full performance of Do You feel Like We Do from the Midnight Special in the mid 70s! It features close-ups of Frampton using the "Talk Box". Crazy good!
Frampton has 'Come Alive' in Maine on 6 occasions over the years. New Hampshire wins though with 9 Peter Frampton shows since 1999. His first appearance in Maine was at Lewiston's Central Maine Youth Center in 1975.
The last trip to Blimpville was in the summer of 2018 at Darling's Watyerfront Pavilion in Bangor with Steve Miller He opened and closed his set with the same songs in 1975 as he did 43 years later.
This is Peter's Farewell Tour so let's all go see him and show that yes, we do feel like he does, one last time in Blimpville.
