Peter Frampton to play the Gillioz

Posted online
Grammy-winning guitarist and vocalist Peter Frampton is scheduled to play a show at the Gillioz Theatre in February.

Michael Owens, managing director of the Gillioz, said in an e-mail that Frampton represents the latest in a variety of artists the theater has brought to Springfield.

"We love to see everyone from small children to seniors get a chance to experience a show in our beautiful theater, and I think Peter Frampton certainly appeals to a wide demographic in the community," Owens said.

The three-hour show is set to feature a complete performance of "Frampton Comes Alive!" - a double live album released in 1976 that features hits such as "Show Me the Way" and "Do You Feel Like We Do" - and songs from Frampton's Grammy-winning instrumental album "Fingerprints," according to a news release from the Gillioz.

Frampton launched a world tour this year to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Frampton Comes Alive!", and the tour is being extended into 2012.

Owens said tickets will start at $46 when they go up for sale at noon Dec. 9. The concert is scheduled for Feb. 27.

The Gillioz Theatre is operated by the Springfield Landmarks Preservation Trust, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for the Gillioz and the adjacent Netters Building in early January to ward off foreclosure brought about by a $3.5 million loan amount owed to Guaranty Bank. In a June Springfield Business Journal article, Dave Roling, president of the trust, said that during the reorganization period, the theater has made a comeback with acts such as comedians Ralphie May and Gabriel Iglesias and rock artists Third Eye Blind and Aaron Lewis of Staind.
