Peter Frampton performing "Show me the Way" live in 2011
If it were possible to marry a guitar, Peter Frampton would be approaching the golden anniversary with his betrothed six-string. Like the Babe Ruth of the Gibson Les Paul, Frampton has been pointing his pick at the sky and knocking solos out of the park since 1966. Having started playing before he was 8 years old, the British virtuoso developed an impeccable technique that other musicians would give their eyeteeth for. His guitar doesn't just talk, it filibusters, and millions of ears have fallen under its sway since 1978's Frampton Comes Alive! made the live-double-album format popular and gave the world hits such as "Baby, I Love Your Way," "Show Me The Way," and "Do You Feel Like We Do." Since then, the Grammy-winning guru has never stopped writing, recording, touring, and inspiring the next generation of ax-wielders. For his summer tour, dubbed Peter Frampton's Guitar Circus, Peter celebrates his romance with music making in a set of classic hits and ingenious jams alongside fellow guitar legends. Every show on the tour is being taped for a later digital release, and Peter randomly gives an autographed setlist to one lucky fan at every stop.
####Kenny Wayne Shepherd
Kenny Wayne Shepherd performing "Blue on Black" live in 2012
Youthful bluesman Kenny Wayne Shepherd has been drawn to the sounds of soulful guitar since he met the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan when he was seven. Subsequent milestones show a talent that belies his age: he shared the stage with Bryan Lee at 13, and recorded the 1998 radio-friendly lament “Blue on Black” when he was barely out of his teens. Recently, Shepherd and his band returned to their roots with 2011’s How I Go, which races from the chugging rock of “Never Lookin’ Back” to the James Brown–tinged blues ballad “Dark Side of Love.”
####Steve Lukather As the guitarist for 1980s hitmakers Toto, Steve Lukather long ago cemented his place in rock and roll history with such chart-topping songs as "Hold the Line," "Rosanna," and "Africa." But even if every Toto recording simultaneously melted, he would still be known as one of the industry's most prolific session players, having shared his talents on more than 100 recordings over the years. During live sets, he displays the precise picking and unflappable cool showcased in recent solo projects such as 2013’s Transition.
A National Historic Landmark, the Majestic Theatre has beckoned more than 4,000 performances to its sweeping stage since its renovation in 1989 and has been praised by such notable guests as Tony Bennett, Sting, and former first lady Barbara Bush. Inside, a Mediterranean-style cityscape frames the theater's proscenium, and the ceiling swirls with projections of clouds, allowing audience members to release parakeets into the wild during concerts and Broadway shows.
