Peter Frampton has said that he will be playing his last shows in Europe while sitting down because of his health.
The guitar legend talked about his last tour in a new interview with Classic Rock magazine. He said, “Well, my legs aren’t good, so I’ve decided to sit down on these upcoming European tour dates.” I just can’t. That would be dangerous for me now because I get so excited when I play that I might fall over (laughs).”
“It’s starting to hurt my hands, but not enough yet, so I can still play a good lick,” says Frampton, who is quick to share his worries about going back onstage again.
“But, if I’m being honest, I’m worried about it. I haven’t played there in so long, and my illness has worsened. At Buddy Holly’s 85th birthday party, I sat down for the first time, and it felt very comfortable (laughs).
Frampton said, “Only two things: I would’ve waited to make an album after Comes Alive! and never put out I’m In You. Breaking All The Rules would have made a much better second album. And I wouldn’t have been in the movie Sgt. Pepper.”
Frampton stopped touring in 2019 after he discovered he had a degenerative muscle disease called Inclusion-Body Myositis, which will make it harder for him to play the guitar.
At the time, the guitarist told Rolling Stone, “We decided to do a farewell tour now because I don’t want to go out and play badly. I want to play well if I go on a farewell tour. I want to be awesome.”
Frampton had to cancel the 2020 concerts of his final tour of Europe and the UK because of the coronavirus pandemic—until now.
