'An evening with Peter Frampton' on June 28

In one of the most anticipated concerts of the summer, Peter Frampton returns to Artpark on June 28 with his "Frampton Comes Alive 35 Tour." The crowd at "First Niagara presents Tuesday at the Park" will experience an evening with the one and only beginning at 6:30 p.m. (no opening act). Oh, and it's a free show.

To commemorate the 35th anniversary of Frampton's top-selling live album, the three-hour show will feature a complete performance of "Frampton Comes Alive!" from start to finish, along with highlights from Frampton's catalog, including his Grammy-winning instrumental album, 2006's "Fingerprints."

Frampton (www.frampton.com) is a self-taught guitar virtuoso known for his legendary live shows, which feature his trademark "talking guitar." His mega-hits include "Baby I Love Your Way," "Show Me The Way," "I Can't Stand It No More" and "Do You Feel Like We Do." Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history.

All concerts in the "Tuesday in the Park" series begin at 6:30 p.m., with free hands-on art activities for children beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Artpark's Outdoor Amphitheater opens to the public at 4 p.m. on event nights, and can be accessed via the upper park's Portage Road entrance off of Center Street or through South Fourth Street nearest the Mainstage Theater.
