An all-star lineup takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. The show features David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years, Money Mark, Joshua Redman and Sinkane. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Learn More

This was a top-rated show. I truly enjoyed this event. There was a lot of reminiscing going on with some of the old tunes that Peter played, as well as the new tunes. Peter's voice is just as good as it has ever been and he truly enjoys the audience and interacts throughout his entire show. The opening band was very good as well. This was definitely a time to remember and I am grateful for the opportunity to have experienced the guitar playing of Peter Frampton live and in living color!
Rock n’ Roll icon and guitar hero Peter Frampton will perform live at The Wiltern LG at a busy time. In addition to his solo tour, he released an all-instrumental album, Fingerprint, through A&M/New Door Records September 12th, and will also play a brief swing of orchestral dates, kicking off with a June 24th show with the Cincinnati Pops orchestra.
Peter Frampton ruled FM radio during the 70’s, and remains both a fixture at AOR stations and on the concert trail. His arena rock touchstone, Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the best-selling live albums in history. His shows continue to draw fans of all generations, including those for whom classic hits like, “Show Me The Way,” “Do You Feel Like We Do,” and, “Baby, I Love Your Way,” are an aural soundtrack as well as those who are hearing them for the first time. Frampton’s renowned fret-work has also made him a consistently soughtafter session player. He has contributed to projects by George Harrison, David Bowie, Nilsson and more.
