Skokie Comes Alive!

Laura Hine | January 4, 2017 | Feature Features National

Legendary rock star Peter Frampton strips it down for an acoustic tour.
“Do You Feel Like We Do?” If the answer is yes, Peter Frampton is coming to Skokie for an acoustic set.

Totally different from his band tour, which regularly swings through Ravinia, Peter Frampton is bringing his acoustic show to the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts. “I was very anxious about doing it at all, but I said, ‘Let’s just book half a dozen shows and see how it goes,’” Frampton says. “When I played the first song and the audience went berserk, I felt the love.” Frampton plays onstage with longtime collaborator Gordon Kennedy, and the two trade stories between the songs. “It’s so much easier to communicate,” he says. “I’m sitting up on a stage, which is set up like a living room, and both Gordon and I enjoy telling stories. There’s a lot of self-deprecating humor, which, strangely enough, the audience really likes.” He has an easy laugh over the phone, and if you preview the album Acoustic Classics, you’ll hear his strong singing voice, which is amazing considering that he started singing semiprofessionally at the age of 11. “We only do 12 or 13 acoustic shows a year,” he says. “Each audience is different, so every night is a different night with new stories, and I never play the same solo twice on the guitar. That’s how I keep it fresh.” April 1, 8pm, VIP meet-and-greet packages $195-$300, concert tickets $69-$99
