Let's say you max out and get a $100 ticket to see and hear Saturday's Peter Frampton/Steve Miller Band double bill in the Grand Theater at Foxwoods. As an investment, you're basically paying a very reasonable $6 per bona fide hit — with Frampton providing 7 and Miller 10 over the course of their respective 90-minute sets. (Frampton could eke out a few more borderline biggies, but of course "Do You Feel Like We Do" clocks in at about 15-plus minutes so that understandably hogs his show ...)

Bonus stuff: Frampton will join Miller onstage during the latter's performance for a two-song blues jam — both are far better guitarists than maybe history has credited — and Peter will also treat the crowd to at least one tune from his excellent days as a member of Humble Pie — "Four Day Creep," "I Want You to Love Me" or "I Don't Need No Doctor."

In these nervous economic times then, Miller/Frampton is rated value plus for all the FM Rock Heads out there.

Peter Frampton, Steve Miller Band, 8 p.m. Saturday, Foxwoods' Grand Theater; $65-$100; 1-800-200-2882.
