Despite billing his last tour as his official “farewell” — Peter Frampton has just surprised fans by announcing a 26-date summer run, dubbed the “Never Say Never” tour. Frampton has been forced to slowly quit the road upon discovering he’s suffering from a degenerative muscle disease called Inclusion-Body Myositus (IBM), that slowly weakens the body’s muscles.

The new trek kicks off on June 21st in Huber Heights, Ohio at Rose Music Center and winds down two months later on August 21st at Sandy, Utah’s Sandy Amphitheater.

Frampton issued a statement explaining his choice to return to the road, which reads:

At the end of every Finale Tour show I did say, “Never Say Never” and I am always full of hope for the impossible. I’m very pleased to let you know that I am feeling strong and my fingers are still roaming the fretboard. Every note I play now has more meaning and soul. I love playing live and this fighter wants to stay in the ring for as long as he can. I’m so happy to be able to see you all one more time this summer. Much love, Peter.

Prior to Peter Frampton’s last tour, we pressed him about how he makes his nightly setlist decisions: “I’ve been going through some of the old albums and thinking about what to do. I don’t know what my criteria is for choosing the old ones or what I’m. . . What I’m willing to do, but with me, it’s always a gut feeling of if it feels good when we rehearse it, we’ll do it, y’know?”
