Peter Frampton Reveals Muscle Disease Diagnosis, Announces North American Farewell Tour

Monday, 25 February 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Peter Frampton has announced initial dates for a North American farewell tour.

The news comes after the 68-year old rock legend confirmed during recent interviews with Rolling Stone and CBS This Morning that he is to cease touring after being diagnosed with a rare, degenerative muscle disease called Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM) three and a half years ago.

The singer-songwriter and guitarist, whose 1976 record 'Frampton Comes Alive' is one of the best-selling live albums of all time, also confirmed that he's planning a double album for release around the start of the tour this summer, as well as a single album that he hopes to complete in the coming weeks. He said:

"Between October and two days ago, we've done like 33 new tracks. I just want to record as much as I can, you know, now, for obvious reasons.

Going upstairs and downstairs is the hardest thing for me. I'm going to have to get a cane... and then the other thing I noticed, I can't put things up over my head.

What will happen, unfortunately, is that it affects the finger flexors. That's the first telltale sign is the flexors, you know. So for a guitar player, it's not very good."

Frampton believes that the muscular issues will eventually force him to retire from the road but not before he gets chance to bid farewell to fans in North America with over 45 dates throughout the summer, commencing on June 18 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and currently culminating in Concord, California on October 12. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on March 1.
