Peter Frampton and Lynyrd Skynyrd Announce Tour
Peter Frampton and Lynyrd Skynyrd – two artists known for their classic live albums in the '70s – are hitting the road together this summer.
So far, a dozen dates have been announced, but more are promised soon. The tour will start on June 3 in Albany, N.Y., and is set to wrap up on Aug. 21 in Murphys, Calif., but the road trip could be extended. You can see a full list of show dates below.
Frampton and Skynyrd have toured together several times over the years, going back to the '70s, when each scored big with popular live albums. The band's 1976 concert set, One More From the Road, includes a 14-minute version of "Free Bird" that still gets tons of airplay. Frampton's live album, Frampton Comes Alive! (also from 1976), was pretty much a record-collection staple back in the day.
Lynyrd Skynyrd's most recent studio LP, Last of a Dyin' Breed, reached No. 14 in 2012 – the group's highest-charting album since their last with the original classic lineup, 1977's Street Survivors. Frampton recently released Acoustic Classics, an album of some of his best-known songs performed unplugged.
