Guitarist Peter Frampton Friday announced a primarily U.S. “farewell tour” that will begin in mid-June and continue through the fall, with an Oct. 5 stop in Inglewood at the Forum.
Other Southern California dates on the “Peter Frampton Finale — The Farewell Tour” presented by SiriusXM include a Sept. 29 show at the Pechanga Casino in Temecula and an Oct. 2 concert at the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre at San Diego State University.
The tour will feature special guest Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, as well as son Julian Frampton on the West Coast stops, with additional “surprise guests” to appear on select dates.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning next Friday at 10 a.m. at LiveNation.com, but Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday.
