beginning in August 1969 until March 1975 when the classic Humble Pie ended

performance reviews and of course details of each concert date,including location, venue, headlining/support acts,
number of shows, cancellations,etc. We will only
achieve this with your help. So that is why we have included links to the
Humble Pie Tour Archive as it exists today.

In October 1971, Steve recruited guitarist Dave “Clem” Clempson formerly of Colosseum and Bakerloo to replace Frampton. Shortly after Clempson joined the band, this version of Humble Pie began touring and basically did not stop until they broke up in March 1975. They recorded four additional albums, “Smokin’” in March 1972, “Eat It” in April 1973, “Thunderbox” in February 1974 and “Street Rats” in February 1975. “Street Rats” was released while Humble Pie #2 was on their “Goodbye Tour”.
