2/23/19-Peter Frampton Announces Farewell Tour
He revealed on “This Morning: Saturday” that he is dealing with an autoimmune disease called Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM). The disease is a progressive muscle disorder that causes inflammation and atrophy of the muscles and weakness. Seeing himself as a perfectionist, Frampton wishes to go out while he is still at the top of his game, before the disease starts to steal any of his skill. Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening will be the tour’s special guest, with additional surprise guests along the way. Frampton has been working on new music, enough to fill what he says are three projects, with a planned double album that he hopes to put out prior the the tour starting in June. The tour is set to end in San Francisco on Oct. 12.
Frampton is being treated at Johns Hopkins. He has set up The Peter Frampton Myositis Research Fund and $1 of every ticket will go to the fund. Only about 24,000 Americans have been diagnosed with the disease, but since the early symptoms can seem so much like the aging process, people may be going undiagnosed.
