Classic rock shows are the hot ticket this summer and the bands are holding up just as well (if not better) than their younger counterparts. Peter Frampton and Cheap Trick proved so last night as they played The Paramount in Huntington, New York. Opening up the night was Cheap Trick, who rocked an array of their catalog that included “Surrender” “I Want You To Want Me” and “Come On, Come On.” Covering Fats Domino’s “Ain’t That a Shame” and The Velvet Underground’s “I’m Waiting For the Man,” Cheap Trick lit up the crowd with their unwavering enthusiasm.
Peter Frampton took the stage, tearing through his own incomparable catalog, playing everything from “Something’s Happening”, “Lines On My Face” and “Baby I Love Your Way” to his talk-box-pioneering “Do You Feel Like We Do”. Frampton provided some covers as well, playing Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun”, Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” and closing the show with The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”
There was a plethora of classic rock treats for the audience at The Paramount as Cheap Trick and Peter Frampton brought us back to the times of generation-defining rock n’ roll.
