Peter Frampton has announced that a new 2-DVD set commemorating the 35th anniversary of his classic Frampton Comes Alive! will be released on November 13th. ‘FCA! 35 Tour: An Evening With Peter Frampton,’ will feature high-definition footage and 5.1 surround sound of two recorded shows off his most recent tour in Milwaukee and New York City.
In addition, the veteran rocker says a 30-track companion ‘Best of FCA35’ CD, will also be available on November 13th. He explained in a post on his Facebook page, “We multi-track recorded nearly all of the 116 shows that made up the entire FCA35 Tour. From all the shows I have chosen my favorite performances of each song and instrumental. There were 30 tracks to choose making up one complete show,” he wrote. “We are now at the final ‘tweaking the mixes’ stage and I am editing them all together. Now if I played my own trumpet I would have to say that I am very excited at the results. Then again I don’t play trumpet!”
Frampton will kick off the 35th Anniversary Tour of his album ‘Frampton Comes Alive’ at the Manchester Bridgewater Hall on Friday November 11th, performing the hit album for the very first time in the UK in its entirety, along with highlights from his career.
