Rock performer Peter Frampton is doing something he has never done before. Yes, he's going on tour, but instead of the lights and high-powered background noise, he's playing the entire show acoustically.

He'll be joined by his longtime collaborator Gordon Kennedy and his son and fellow performer, Julian Frampton.

Frampton will perform March 10, 2016 at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Phoenix.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, Dec. 11 at 10 a.m.

"This is a first for me and I'm very excited.." said Frampton in a prepared statement. " I have done a lot of shows including 2 or 3 acoustic solo pieces and always enjoy the way it draws the audience and myself closer together."

That same night, Bruce Springsteen will perform at Talking Stick Resort Arena, a stop on his The River Tour 2016.
