Frampton's Guitar Circus

Peter Frampton performs "Show Me the Way" in 2011

  • Year Frampton began playing guitar: 1966
  • Accomplishments of 1978's Frampton Comes Alive!: made the live-double-album format popular; gave the world "Baby, I Love Your Way," "Show Me The Way," and "Do You Feel Like We Do"
  • How you'll be able to augment your memories of the show: Every show on the tour is being taped for a later digital release; Frampton randomly gives an autographed set list to one lucky fan at every stop.
  • How B.B. King was once praised by Carlos Santana: “I can hear B.B. King with the sound off on a TV, just by looking at his face.”
  • Additional revelation King's performance inspired in Santana: He should probably fix his TV.
  • Rate at which King has released albums: about one every year and a half, assuming he started at the age of 3 months
  • People who have collaborated with slide guitarist Sonny Landreth: Eric Clapton, Jimmy Buffett, John Hiatt, Eric Johnson, Mark Knopfler, Buckwheat Zydeco
  • Artists whose records Landreth has graced (in addition to his 11 solo releases): Dolly Parton, Harry Connick, Jr.
  • Landreth's signature technique: wearing the slide on his pinkie while using his other fingers to fret notes above it

Paramount Theatre

A lot has changed in the century since the Paramount Theatre was founded, but the theater's crowd-pleasing entertainment wouldn't have been out of place in Aurora's turn-of-the-century theater scene. When the Venice-inspired art-deco venue was first built, it joined an already-bustling local tradition of vaudeville, silent films, concerts, and circus acts. Photographs dating back to 1931 guided a 1976 restoration, in which artisans completely retraced and repainted eight original murals, re-gilded the fluted columns, and patched up the sheets of every ghost. Concerts, comedy, and community events fill the theater when it's not occupied by the dazzling production values of a professional musical-theater company, which launched what the Chicago Tribune called a "thrilling debut season" in 2011.
