At the SummerStage venue in Manhattan’s Central Park on Sept. 26, the City Parks Foundation (CPF) will jointly honor John McEnroe and Patrick McEnroe with the City Parks Foundation Icon Award. Nadir Settles, the global head of real estate impact at Nuveen Real Estate, will be honored with the People & Parks Award.

During the course of the evening, Frampton – whose era-defining double-LP Frampton Comes Alive! topped the Billboard 200 for 10 weeks in 1976 – will perform a set (and he has six top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 to choose from), as will Patty Smyth, the singer-songwriter and former Scandal singer who scored a top 10 on the Hot 100 with “The Warrior” (alongside Scandal) in 1984 and another top 10 on that chart in 1992 with “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough,” a Don Henley duet. Smyth will perform with a house band led by Steve Jordan, a veteran musical director and the touring drummer for the Rolling Stones. The concert portion of the evening is produced by RWE Partners.

Upon learning of his impending Rock Hall induction back in April, Frampton told Billboard he was “blown away,” adding, “It’s an honor people regard me in this way.”

Tickets for the concert and dinner benefit event are available on City Parks Foundation’s site. CPF presents free arts and cultural programs in NYC parks throughout the year and helps make the city’s green spaces accessible for all people.
