“We haven’t done the song in years, not until this tour. My dear friend, the amazing Stanley Sheldon, who was with me for the original Frampton Comes Alive! is back in the band on bass. He’s obviously played it with me many times, but the other guys haven’t.
“In preparation for this tour, I found myself getting very excited to perform Something’s Happening live again. It was so funny - when we started playing it in rehearsal, everybody had these huge, beaming smiles on their faces; they could sense the excitement it would generate in front of an audience.
“Of course, I remember when we played it at Winterland in San Francisco back in 1975. It was the first time we’d headlined in a major city. I was so nervous that we’d flop, but when we walked on stage and played this song, 7,000 people went berserk – for us! That was a real thrill, and quite a surprise.
“Incredibly, we got the same reaction when we started this tour in Red Bank, New Jersey. People went apeshit! And they go crazy every night we hit the stage and play Something's Happening. We love to see that. What a great feeling.”
