Talking Peter Frampton live @ Belmont-Ashburn VA

I'm really glad I went to this show even though I was never a huge fan.

The crowd was maybe 2000 peeps.

Frampton's playing and tones were amazing!

His 3PU Les Paul Special was the best sounding Les Paul I have ever heard.

Tell us more...

Who opened for him?
What kind of gear was used?
Analog or digital consoles at MON & FOH?
Et cetera, etc.

yeah, what Steve said!

Surely you spent the whole time ogling the gear and didn't actually get distracted by watching the show, right? (otherwise we might have to revoke your Gearslut membership card!)

I saw Peter open up for Journey in 2001 at Red Rocks (Colorado). I went to see Journey and they were great, but Frampton's sound totally blew away Journeys. One of the best live shows I have seen. Not only was the performance fantastic, but the attention to sound quality was as good as I have ever heard live. And of course, Bob Mayo was excellent as well, he is missed (r.i.p.)

I was in the cheap seats ( lawn ) so I couldn't get close enough to see too much detail.

Next time I can afford to go to a show, I'll have to be assertive about taking notes.

Sorry didn't even think to look for a logo on the sound console even though I was
maybe 10 feet away.

I'm no help.

Framptons official web page has quite a few details listed.

My favorite song was his rendition of While My Guitar Gently Weeps

My friend and I disagree about the color of his LP Special, It looked dark green to me
but he swears it was black. May have been the lighting.

The opening act was a DC area local band Honor By August
