Grammy Award-winning guitarist Peter Frampton will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2024. Frampton, whose nomination marked his first appearance on the ballot to be considered for induction, will be amongst those honored at the ceremony in Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland this fall. “This is something I never expected,” shares Frampton. “I am overwhelmed that I will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, especially alongside so many incredible artists who have gone before me. I can’t thank everyone enough for voting for me. You are the best. Somebody, pinch me please!!”

Frampton performed at the 2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, when he joined fellow lauded musicians and Rock Hall inductees Sheryl Crow and Stevie Nicks on stage—watch here.

The news adds to yet another landmark year for the legendary musician who recently wrapped his “Never EVER Say Never Tour” in celebration of his 60th year of touring. The run of dates was unexpected by fans after he announced a farewell tour five years ago following his diagnosis with the degenerative disease inclusion-body myositis. Despite this, Frampton embarked on an extensive 2023 spring and summer tour where he appeared on stages across North America.
