Yes and Peter Frampton announce tour

Peter Frampton and Yes, on tour together?  It's actually not as random of a combination as you might think - it turns out that the pair have some past touring history together.  Frampton and Yes played stadium shows together in 1976, and if you think about it, who didn't play together back in those days?

Peter Frampton - Thank You Mr. Churchill

Frampton will be promoting his new album Thank You Mr. Churchill (out April 27th via Universal on both CD and vinyl). Frampton and Yes will play 90 minutes each, co-headlining a total of 25 shows this summer.

The tour dates will start in early June and run through the middle of July.  Here's the initial list of dates (more to be added):

June 16 Mohegan Sun, Uncasville, CT
June 18 Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, Bethel, NY
June 19 Tower Theater, Upper Darby, PA
June 20 Meadows Racetrack and Casino, Meadow Lands, PA
June 23 Wolf Trap Foundation for Performing Arts, Vienna, VA
July 4 Lake Forest Venue, Blue Ash, OH
July 7 Sandia Casino, Albuquerque, NM
July 9 Greek Theatre, Los Angeles, CA
July 10 Harrah’s Rincon-Open Sky Theater, Valley Center, CA

I haven't seen Frampton (come alive) in a few years, so if this tour ends up coming somewhere near Cleveland (perhaps closer than Blue Ash), I would love to see it.  The last time that I saw Frampton was probably about 10 years ago, touring with Journey and John Waite.  I really enjoyed his 2004 solo release Now.

The Yes lineup will once again feature Benoit David touring in place of Yes vocalist Jon Anderson.

Of special note - Frampton's new album will be out two weeks early on vinyl, hitting the shelves on April 13th.

    The follow-up to 2006's Grammy Award winning instrumental album, 'Footprints', 'Thank You Mr Churchill' is a very autobiographical album starting with Frampton's birth after his father's return from the Second World War, as celebrated in the title track. With other highlights relating to his first musical experiences, his relationship with his son and his life before and after finding sobriety as well his take on events around the world that have affected him and his love of Motown. As you would expect his guitar playing is exemplary, perhaps nowhere more than on the 8 minute instrumental 'Suite Libert' which forms the centrepiece of the album. The album includes 2 Bonus Recordings 'I Understand' & 'A Thousand Dreams' [which do not appear on the US edition] and features guest appearances from the Funk Brothers on the Motown homage 'Invisible Man' and Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron.
