As one of the biggest arena rock stars of the 1970’s, British guitar legend Peter Frampton is still considered to be one of the most celebrated guitarists in rock history. This singer, songwriter, and Grammy Award winner was previously associated with the bands Humble Pie and The Herd and is well known for his classic hits “Show Me the Way,” “Do You Feel Like We Do,” and “Baby I Love Your Way.” This summer, Frampton is taking a collection of guitarists on tour in the Peter Frampton Guitar Circus, bringing in special guests for limited engagements throughout the tour. Joining Frampton at the Kauffman Center are musicians B.B. King and Sonny Landreth. Blues guitarist B.B. King has developed one of the world’s most readily identified guitar styles. He borrowed from Lonnie Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, T-Bone Walker and others, integrating his precise vocal like string bends and his left hand vibrato, both of which have become indispensable components of the rock guitarist’s vocabulary. Sonny Landreth, 2005 Americana Music Instrumentalist of the Year, is a Blues musician best known for his slide guitar playing.
