Sunday night we drove to Gilford, NH to the Bank of NH Pavilion, formerly Meadowbrook, to see Peter Frampton FINALE-The Farewell Tour 2019, his last tour. After 50+ years of touring Peter Frampton has announced that this tour will be his last. The Farewell Tour features support from Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening for the majority of the run. JBLZE opened on Sunday.

I first saw Frampton back in 1977 and really enjoying his guitar work so I wanted to see him in this last tour.
