, Staff

Heart will hit the pavement this summer for tour that will make its way to Massachusetts at the end of July. The classic rock favorites will play the Bank of America Pavilion with special guest Peter Frampton on Wednesday, July 28. Tickets, which range in price from $25 to $50, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Fans can purchase a special 4-pack of tickets for a discounted price of $37.50 each.

Seattle legends Heart will be touring in support of their forthcoming album, Velvet Red Car. Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson are hoping to release the new album sometime in July. The band are currently in the studio and completing the new album, which is being produced by Grammy Award winner Ben Mink. Velvet Red Car will be Heart’s thirteenth studio album and first since 2004’s Jupiter’s Darling. Most recently, Ann and Nancy both took part in the recording of “We Are the World: 25 for Haiti”.

Frampton will be on the road supporting his forthcoming album, Thank You Mr Churchill. Scheduled to hit stores on April 27, the 11-song set is his fourteenth studio effort and first since his 2006 Grammy Award-winning instrumental album, Fingerprints. Frampton wrote all the tracks on Thank You Mr Churchill, penning many with longtime collaborator Gordon Kennedy. His co-producer/co-engineer, Chris Kimsey, was the engineer on Frampton’s first solo record, 1972’s Wind of Change. Guests include Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron, who also played on Fingerprints, and the legendary Funk Brothers. “This album is very autobiographical,” Frampton explained in a press release. “It starts with my birth, which I thank Mr Churchill for bringing my father back from the Second World War.”
