Farewell jam: Peter Frampton hits the road before retiring

It’s been quite the journey for Peter Frampton.

His contributions to rock ‘n’ roll are immeasurable, with timeless hits such as “Baby, I Love Your Way,” “Show Me the Way” and “Do You Feel Like We Do.” His efforts were recognized in 2014 with his induction into the Musicians Hall of Fame and, more recently, with the Les Paul Innovation Award at the 2019 National Association of Music Merchants Show’s 34th annual TEC Awards.

Frampton is now ready to retire but is not going out without a bang. He is on his Peter Frampton Finale – The Farewell Tour, which stops at the Sandia Resort & Casino Amphitheater on Tuesday, Sept. 24.

“Frampton will retire from regular vigorous touring at the end of this year due to his diagnosis of the autoimmune disease inclusion body myositis,” according to a Frampton news release. “IBM is a progressive muscle disorder characterized by muscle inflammation, weakness and atrophy.”

During the tour, $1 of every ticket sold, as well as any donations, will benefit the Peter Frampton Myositis Research Fund at Johns Hopkins.

“The production on this show will be amazing,” Debbie C. Ruddle, marketing event manager at Sandia Resort & Casino, said in an email. “… This is the largest production we have had in several years – if ever. Albuquerque – specifically Sandia – was one of the chosen spots (Frampton) wanted to perform.”

The tour features the Peter Frampton Band and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening.
