ONLY ON “CBS THIS MORNING”: PETER FRAMPTON BIDS NEW YORK CITY FAREWELL

GRAMMY Award-winning guitarist Peter Frampton has been touring for 50 years, but a sudden illness forced the 69-year-old to announce a farewell tour. CBS THIS MORNING co-host Anthony Mason joined Frampton backstage at Madison Square Garden for his last New York City show where he made his final walk to the stage, and said goodbye to thousands of fans. Earlier this year, Peter Frampton opened up to Mason about being diagnosed with a rare degenerative muscular disease.
