Peter Frampton Finale at Mohegan Sun Arena, Connecticut

Legendary guitar player Peter Frampton will perform with his band, the Peter Frampton Finale, at Mohegan Sun Arena on September 2, at 7:30 p.m. This performance is a part of the tour which is called The Farewell Tour with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening presented by SiriusXM.

If you are interested in watching this show, you can buy tickets starting on Friday, March 1, with the lowest price being $39, and the highest being $59. The tickets could be obtained via the platform called Ticketmaster. You can either log in online or call them in order to buy a ticket. Furthermore, people who live nearby will be able to buy the tickets for the show at the Mohegan Sun Box Office, starting March 2 at 10 a.m.

Apart from Peter Frampton and his band, the son of the late legendary drummer of Led Zeppelin, John Bonham, will also be a part of this performance. Jason Bonham has inherited a huge talent from his father who is considered the best rock drummer of all time.

Peter Frampton Is a Living Legend

Peter Frampton is a name which is often associated with two bands — Humble Pie and The Heard. However, Frampton became one of the most influential rock guitarists only after he had left his “group” career and decided to devote to his solo projects.

The first album he made as a solo artist was named Frampton Comes Alive, which sold eight million copies and was an instant success. This was pretty unusual at the time since it was a live album. After that, he continued on releasing successful albums and has collaborated with numerous other stars including Ringo Starr, David Bowie, Mike McCready, and Matt Cameron. Furthermore, Frampton also worked with or toured with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cheap Trick, Steve Miller Band, and more. At one point, he was the leader of the Peter Frampton’s Guitar Circus which included many famous artists such as Buddy Guy, BB King, Larry Carlton, Don Felder, Dan DeLeo, Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth, and many others.

Some of the popular songs that Frampton wrote include “I’m in You,” “Do You Feel Like We Do,” “Show Me the Way,” and “Baby, I Love Your Way.” These remained classic hits on many radios focused on rock music to date. Furthermore, Frampton also participated in a couple of TV shows and appeared as himself in Family Guy and The Simpsons.

This amazing talent and legendary artist has also won numerous accolades for his work. Recently, he has received the “Les Paul Innovation” Award which was given to him at the 2019 NAMM Show’s 34th annual TEC Awards.

Apart from being an amazing musician, Frampton is also a great colleague who respects other talented musicians, and one of them is the late singer Chris Cornell. Frampton was a part of the group called “I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell,” with whom he toured and actively performed in order to pay tribute to one of the best vocals in rock history.

Sadly, the reason why Peter Frampton has named this tour “The Farewell Tour” is due to the fact that he has received a diagnosis of inclusion body myositis. This is a disorder which causes muscle inflammation, weakness and eventual atrophy. In other words, people who enjoy classic rock, blues and guitar spectacles will have the last opportunity to see this amazing artist perform and Mohegan Sun Arena at Connecticut is one of his stops where he will say goodbye to his fans and rock followers!
