Steve Miller and Peter Frampton Announce North American Summer Tour

–Joe Lund

Peter Frampton and Steve Miller have joined the growing list of veteran rockers who’ve announced co-headlining tours of North America this summer. The classic-rock icons will team up for a 32-city trek that kicks off June 15 in Holmdel, New Jersey, and wraps up on August 13 in Murphys, California. The two musicians share a personal history that dates back nearly a half-century.

“Peter and I first met at Olympic studios in London in the late sixties when we were both just starting our recording careers,” said Miller, in a prepared statement. “He was a wonderful guitarist and songwriter then and he is even more so today. Over the years, we’ve played together in venues from theaters to football stadiums and everything in between. He always sets the musical bar high, his band always knocks me out and I’m thrilled we are going to spend the summer together doing a great run of concerts. This is the kind of quality and talent we both strive to present and I’m looking forward to a summer of great music, exceptional performances and fun. Peter is remarkable musician.”

Frampton echoed Miller’s sentiments. “Steve Miller was in a recording studio vocal booth stacking incredible harmonies the first time we met in London, circa 1970,” said Frampton. “From that moment on I have been a huge admirer of his multiple talents, singing, writing and of course his amazing guitar playing. Over the years we have played together everywhere from theatres to stadiums. Now, once again, we have the opportunity to play together touring the US this summer.

“Steve has already asked if I will come and jam on a few tunes during his set. ‘YES PLEASE!’ was my very quick answer! Music is all about having fun and playing from the heart. I can guarantee you much fun will be had by all on this tour.”
