He is suffering from IBM...

Rock legend Peter Frampton is set to bring his farewell tour to the UK next year.

The guitarist has been diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Inclusion Body Myositis - or IBM - and this is having an impact on his health.

Unable to continue with vigorous touring, Peter Frampton has designed a series of farewell tour dates.

The UK dates round out the tour, and open in Edinburgh on May 24th, before hitting Nottingham, Manchester, and Cardiff.

Finishing in London's Royal Albert Hall on May 31st, Peter Frampton comments:

“I look forward to seeing my dear friends in the UK next year. My Finale Tour is a trip through my music with my incredible Peter Frampton Band.”
