Peter Frampton & Cheap Trick to Perform at Maine State Pier in Portland
A couple of great Classic Rock acts have just announced that they are coming to Southern Maine this summer.
Grammy Award Winner Peter Frampton and power-pop originator's Cheap Trick announced today a co-headline show at the Maine State Pier on Saturday, June 26, 2015 as part of the Machias Savings Bank Concert Series.
Peter Frampton is one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for the British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes collaborations with such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
For the past 35 years, Cheap Trick has forged its rightful place among the world’s most accomplished and emulated rock bands with a timeless sound that blends elements of pop, punk, and even metal, in an instantly recognizable way. Since the release of its self-titled debut album in 1977, Cheap Trick has sold over 20 million records, received 40 gold and platinum recording awards, given more than 5,000 high-powered live performances (the quartet of consummate musicians is widely known for nearly four decades of almost continuous touring), and appeared on 29 movie soundtracks, exhibiting its far-reaching popularity and appeal. In 2007, Cheap Trick was honored by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS for its extensive and significant contributions to the music industry.
Tickets to the show will go on sale on Saturday, January 24th at 10 a.m. and range in price from $42.00 to $82.00.
