Peter Frampton Extends 2023 Never Say Never Tour

Peter Frampton isn’t ready to say goodbye to his 2023 Never Say Never Tour. Today (August 29), the 73-year-old rock guitarist and singer/songwriter revealed a new stretch of headlining shows set for this fall. The success of Frampton’s two-month-long stint of summer performances encouraged him to plan a rapid return to the road.

“I wanted to thank all who came to the Never Say Never Tour this summer. I can’t thank you enough for your love and encouragement at every show!” Frampton says in a press release. “*Breaking news* I am going to be continuing the tour in November. I’m just a glutton for enjoyment and hope you can come see us.”

Many fans assumed Frampton would take a hiatus from live performances following his diagnosis of degenerative disease inclusion-body myositis, which can affect muscle function. Before embarking on his Never Say Never Tour, the influential rock artist had performed only a handful of shows since going public with his diagnosis in 2019.

“At the end of every Finale Tour show, I did say, ‘Never Say Never,’ and I am always full of hope for the impossible,” adds Frampton. “I’m very pleased to let you know that I am feeling strong, and my fingers are still roaming the fretboard. Every note I play now has more meaning and soul. I love playing live, and this fighter wants to stay in the ring for as long as he can. Much love, Peter.”

This Friday (September 1), Frampton will also release a new live album documenting his sold-out 2022 performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
