Peter Frampton was one of the biggest arena rock stars of the ’70s, making his name largely on the double-LP concert set Frampton Comes Alive! Frampton was one of several ‚Äô70s rock artists (Kiss, Cheap Trick, etc.) to break through to a wide audience with a live album; much like the others, he‚Äôd recorded several previous albums and built a following through extensive touring, in the process honing an exciting concert presence. That helped Frampton Comes Alive! become the best-selling live album of all time (up to that point), with eventual sales of over six million units in the U.S. and over 16 million copies worldwide.
