Yes! Frampton!! Tour!!!

Prog rock melodies and tasty guitar riffs are what’s in store for this summer as two great concert acts – Yes and Peter Frampton – hit the road starting in June.

The Yes lineup features bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, Oliver Wakeman (son of Rick) on keyboards and Benoit David – tapped to sit in for an ailing Jon Anderson in 2008 – continues to handle lead vocals.

Of course, Frampton hardly needs an introduction, from Humble Pie to Frampton’s Camel to a successful solo career, the guitar slinger has been playing for audiences since he was 10 years old. Frampton also served as a consultant for the movie “Almost Famous,” the somewhat fictionalized account of Cameron Crowe’s teenage days as a scribe for Rolling Stone.

Frampton also has a new album – Thank You Mr. Churchill – coming out April 16.

The tour begins June 16 in Uncasville, Conn., at the Mohegan Sun Casino and travels June 18 to Bethel, N.Y., for a gig at the Bethel Woods Center For The Arts before heading to Upper Darby, Penn., and the Tower Theatre June 19.
