Rocker Peter Frampton has 'meltdown' in the middle of concert

Peter Frampton was clearly having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day ...

Fans were left confused and angry at the 67-year-old British rocker when he unexpectedly stormed off the stage in the middle of a performance over the weekend. Concertgoers detailed on social media Frampton's "meltdown" while opening for The Steve Miller Band at the Treasure Island Resort and Casino in Red Wing, Minnesota.

The rocker exploded when the cameraman zoomed in on a fan holding a Frampton Comes Alive album, which sold more than eight million copies in the U.S. alone and spawned several hits, instead of Frampton himself as he played a solo.

"He went over to the cameraman and tried to yank the camera out of his hands," one fan wrote on Facebook. "He then walked off stage. He came back with the the screens off and finished the show, not well."

Frampton left the stage for a good 10 minutes, eventually coming back to finish the show by performing three more songs.

While Frampton did end up coming back to finish his performance, fans were a little more than miffed at his diva-like behavior.

"I stand w/ the cameraman who was pleasing the crowd - @peterframpton you're not gods gift #MillerFramptonTI#Diva#IWishYouStayedOffStage," one fan wrote on Twitter.

The London-born rocker is best known for his hits "Show Me The Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way," which remain mainstays on rock radio stations. He's also made appearances on hit television shows like "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy."

Frampton has yet to publicly comment on his unexpected temper tantrum.
