These recordings are fully mixed, mastered, individually numbered and are available to buy from the Abbey Road Live booth after the show. Additionally, a bonus audio CD "rocumentary" is included, with Frampton being interviewed by longtime rock radio personality Redbeard. For those who cannot attend the shows the sets will be available to pre-order online from Monday, May 23 at www.abbeyroadliveus.com, to be shipped directly to fans anywhere in the world.
Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British teen band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
