Peter Frampton admits he’s unsure if he’ll ever be able to play the final European leg of his farewell tour. Frampton, who wrapped an exhaustive North American trek back in October 2019, has been forced to slowly quit the road upon discovering he’s suffering from a degenerative muscle disease called Inclusion-Body Myositus (IBM), that slowly weakens the body’s muscles. He was set to play his final shows last spring across the continent. Frampton will release his new instrumental set, Frampton Forgets The Words, on April 23rd.
