Like, where did the time go?

Peter Frampton has announced the dates for “Finale - The Farewell Tour,” that will take the rock guitarist across the United States — with one stop in Montreal — beginning in June.

Frampton “is the latest classic rock icon to announce that his next tour will be his last,” writes Rolling Stone, which describes the event as an “extensive arena and amphitheater farewell tour.”

Singer and composer Elton John announced on Wednesday that he will retire from the road after his upcoming three-year global tour, dubbed "Farewell Yellow Brick Road. The tour starts on 8 September in Allentown, Pennsylvania. It will consist of 30

Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening will appear with Frampton at many stops, and the rocker’s son, Julian Frampton, will appear at West Coast concerts, according to Frampton.com.

“Frampton first came to fame as the frontman of the Sixties psychedelic band the Herd and then as the guitarist in the early Seventies rock band Humble Pie,” according to Rolling Stone.

“He went solo in 1972, but struggled to find a mass audience until his 1976 live album ‘Frampton Comes Alive!’ hit Number One on the album charts and produced the massive hit singles ‘Show Me the Way,’ ‘Baby, I Love Your Way’ and ‘Do You Feel Like We Do.’”

Behind the scenes, he’s worked alongside George Harrison, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron, according to his website.

In front of the camera, he’s appeared as himself on episodes of “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons,” according to a press release from Live Nation Entertainment.

The tour begins June 18 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It will stop in such cities as Nashville, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Kansas City and Las Vegas before wrapping up on Oct. 12 in Concord, California.

A stop in Montreal, Canada, on July 5 is included.
