Peter Frampton was in Montreal Monday night for a fundraiser and the world premiere of his film FCA35.
The concert DVD has highlights of Frampton's world tour to mark the 35th anniversary of his album "Frampton Comes Alive," which sold 17 million copies.
In Montreal, the Grammy award-winning guitarist auctioned off one of his guitars and other memorabilia to benefit the Saku Koivu foundation.
Frampton said his favourite part of his world tour was coming to Montreal.
"We got to play the Montreal jazz festival. We were the first night on and that was an honour for us because it's a big deal, your festival here," said Frampton.
The guitar sold for $3,700, and the rest of the evening's proceeds brought in several thousand more dollars.
The foundation said that money and other donations will be used to purchase a CT scanner machine and to support Koivu's commitment to making the lives of cancer patients less difficult.
