Featuring

Peter Frampton

Peter Frampton appearing at this event

Peter Frampton was one of the biggest arena rock stars of the '70s, making his name largely on the double-LP concert set Frampton Comes Alive! Frampton was one of several '70s rock artists (Kiss, Cheap Trick, etc.) to break through to a wide audience with a live album; much like the others, he'd recorded several previous albums and built a following through extensive touring, in the process honing an exciting concert presence. He remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band The Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. In February 2019, Frampton announced he was suffering from the progressive muscle disorder inclusion body myositis. This diagnosis instigated a farewell tour in 2019 called Peter Frampton Finale, concerts that coincided with the June release of All Blues, a record where Frampton dedicated himself to covers of classic blues songs.

Jack Savoretti

Jack Savoretti appearing at this event

A bohemian troubadour in a long and sometimes glorious tradition. Maybe you've seen him busking on a street corner, and stopped for a moment, caught by a delicate web of soulful music spun for any passing ear. Think about Jeff Buckley, Ray LaMontagne, Nick Drake, Ben Harper, Damien Rice. Think of the grit and soul of Richard Ashcroft, the raw emotiveness of Neil Diamond. It's the singer and the song. Jack Savoretti is something special. Just one man and his guitar. This is pure music from the source.
