"You made me relive so many fond memories of my teens years by listening to your songs. You exceeded my expectations. You are truly a legend and I must say I was profoundly touched by your humility and gentle personality. The orchestra was magical, thank you, merci, for such a memorable evening.
Your music will forever be eternal."


"This performance was jaw dropping. It was like turning the clock back 25 years. Roger's voice was as it was in Supertramp's heyday. The arrangements were superb, as was the orchestra and choir. On more than one occasion, the hair literally stood up on my arms and neck, especially during "School".
If you are a fan of Supertramp, do not miss this tour."


"Just wanted to thank Roger and his crew of musicians for such a great show. It was the best concert I have ever been to and my husband says the same. Thank you coming back after so long and putting on such a high quality, energetic and uplifting experience. You make the world a better place not just with your music but with your dialogue and communications with your audience.

ROGER HODGSON, Formerly of SUPERTRAMP,
Set for Fall Tour


Description:
 

Roger Hodgson, legendary vocalist and singer-songwriter from Supertramp, is heading back to North America for a series of fall dates. Following extensive tours of Europe and South America, Hodgson kicks off his North American tour on Nov. 4th in Wabash, Indiana. 

Hodgson co-founded the progressive rock band Supertramp in 1969 and was with them for 14 years. He helped define a generation of progressive rock and wrote and sang Supertramp’s globally successful and enduring anthems such as “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “It's Raining Again,” “School,” and “Fool's Overture” – songs that helped the band sell well over 60 million albums.

Hodgson is recognized as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time. He has twice been recognized by ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for his songs being in the top played songs in their repertory, proving that they have indeed stood the test of time.

Accompanied by a four-piece band, Roger continues to perform all his hits that he recorded with 
Supertramp plus other classics - such as “Child of Vision,” “Hide in Your Shell,” “Sister Moonshine,” “Even in the Quietest Moments,” plus favorites from his solo albums - “Only Because of You,” “Lovers in the Wind,” and “In Jeopardy” - many of which can be found on his current CD release, Classics Live.

Uniting generations, Hodgson is transporting baby boomers back to their youth while giving younger concertgoers a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured.  North American audiences are once again preparing to experience the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp.

Roger Hodgson North American Tour Dates:
November 4 - Wabash, IN - Honeywell Center
November 6 - Detroit, MI - MotorCity Casino Hotel
November 7 - Niagara Falls, NY - Seneca Niagara Falls Casino and Resort
November 8 - Ridgefield, CT - Ridgefield Playhouse
November 9 - Bethlehem, PA - Sands Bethlehem Event Center 
November 11 - Huntington, NY - The Paramount
November 14 & 15 - Rama, ON - Casino Rama – On Sale August 20

“Remarkably, the humble musical legend is back and his signature voice sounds stronger than ever… to see and hear Roger Hodgson in concert today is simply to experience a sort of musical homecoming.” Rolling Stone 

This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band. An evening with Roger Hodgson will raise your standards of concert-going.” Huffington Post 

“Beautiful. That’s the word that just keeps popping into your head when watching Roger Hodgson perform.  Whether it’s the melodic complexity of his songs, the harmonies he weaves with his band, the lyrics that sweep you away or his ability to still command the incredible upper range of his voice…”
Classic Rock Music Examiner

Check out his latest release, ‘Classics Live’. This spectacular collection of Roger’s hit songs from concerts recorded around the world is available through his Store and iTunes.

Enjoy this video montage of Hodgson performing some of his timeless classics.

"In the Eye of the Acoustic Storm";

Acoustic Storm, a radio program syndicated in the US and Australia, will rebroadcast a wonderful 2010 interview with Roger Hodgson by Jeff Parets.

For a list of stations and schedules, visit 
http://www.acousticstorm.com/stations


Roger shares about starting to play the guitar at age 12 - "The moment this guitar got into my hands, my life changed forever."

How he got his start in the music industry - "...The Music Publisher liked what he heard, signed me up, and put me in a studio in London, which was my first time in a recording studio with session musicians, one of which was a man called Reg Dwight who later became known as Elton John." 

The most important thing in his life - "(My spiritual compass) has sustained me. It still does today and it's obviously the most important thing in my life because I believe that's what life is for, to really find out who we are as a soul. As a soul, that is where we are really connected to God." 

There is so much more! Enjoy Acoustic Storm's in-depth exclusive interview.

In 1977, Fresno, CA radio station KYNO was celebrating Roger Hodgson's Give a Little Bit. Roger wrote and composed many songs, including Give a Little Bit, before he co-founded Supertramp at the age of 19. This eternal classic from the Even in the Quietest Moments album went to the top of the charts around the world for several weeks during the spring and summer of 1977. Roger has often said that this is why he continues touring - to Give a Little Bit of his love to the world.

"This song is very special to me because its simple message is timeless and is needed even more today than it was when I wrote it. It's all about reaching out and giving and caring."  ~ Roger Hodgson

Roger has donated his time and signature song to help raise funds for Tsunami Relief, Red Cross, UNICEF, World Vision, Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy efforts, United Way, Make a Wish Foundation, and other worthy causes. He receives dozens of requests every year from charities across the globe requesting the use of his song.

Be sure to see Roger perform his classic live this year!
All announced tour dates may be found on the Tour Page or at Facebook.com/RogerHodgson/events.

Enjoy Roger's performance of his timeless classic song, "Breakfast in America," and his interview on Шоуто на Слави (Slavi's Show) on June 30 in Sofia, Bulgaria. Slavi is the "David Letterman of Bulgaria." Yesterday while on the TV show, we learned from the interview that Roger did with Slavi that his songs he recorded with Supertramp made it over the Iron Curtain, and along with bands such as Pink Floyd and Genesis, the music gave the people here hope for a better life and freedom. We hear this sentiment voiced all over the world and see how deeply people identify with Roger’s music and his personal life experiences. He certainly has a way of putting into words what many go through in their life.

We invite you to leave a comment in your native language directly on the show's site. You can comment through your Facebook. Share with the people of Bulgaria and those around the world what Roger's music means to you.

ROGER HODGSON REVIEW BY CBP [Kursaal in San Sebastian, 1600 people]

 

Please note - this may be a rough translation and may contain some inaccuracies.

The Kursaal, what a venue! And what an audience! According to Anna Vadillo, of Get In, who brought the legendary singer and lyricist of the songs of Supertramp to San Sebastian, the audience has never been so hot! From "Take the Long Way Home," starting at 9:03 p.m., the venue was boiling hot. A middle-aged audience came to celebrate their idol, the "maker of the songs" of Supertramp.

Roger Hodgson, 64, is of course the voice of Supertramp but it is also a great arranger. His songs are between rock and progressive rock, beautifully lit this minimalist stage are re-orchestrated, so melodic, and the arrangements are precise, and with an excellent drummer who sets the pace. "Death and a Zoo" of his more pop album "Open the Door" is monstrous. Must also mention "Lord is it Mine." Mister Roger, his unmistakable voice all his, is sometimes with keyboard, piano, or guitar. The sound is super clean, magnified by the excellence of the Kursaal Auditorium because it is first and foremost a living classical music venue, which has an incomparable sound.

I was there two years ago, when you first came, and today, again, I was simply mesmerized. I wish more musicians were as complete as you are, playing such great music, with such great voice and harmony, and lyrics beyond comparison with anything ever made. Your songs truly touched our hearts and souls, as does your kindness on stage, always smiling, always so tender. It is wonderful for me, even though I wasn't even alive at the Supertramp years, to be able to be in touch with your music, and to have the enormous pleasure of seeing you on stage twice in a lifetime.

Roger Hodgson gives Chandler audience a lot
 


April 26, 2014

By Ted Hansen

Welcome. As an interjection, it would have been an appropriate greeting for the audience to give Roger Hodgson and his band upon their return to Arizona, Friday night, April 25, 2014 at the Wild Horse Pass Casino Ovations LIVE! Showroom in Chandler, for the opening night of their 2014 “Breakfast in America” World Tour. But when Roger Hodgson performs, welcome is the feeling he gives to his audience.

Seeing Roger Hodgson in concert gives one the warm, comfortable, feel found when reuniting with a long lost friend. Whether it’s the musings of a 19 year old Hodgson that wrote “Breakfast in America,” or the lovelorn Hodgson that composed “Give A Little Bit,” Hodgson’s lyrics have already opened up his feelings to the listener. Couple that with Hodgson’s easy going on stage demeanor and in between song insights and not only do you feel you know him, but, despite many years that may have gone by, that it was just yesterday that the two of you spoke. There is something special about opening nights. There is an extra camaraderie found in the reuniting of band members that flows over into reuniting with an audience as well. Granted, not everything will be perfect, but that just adds to the comfort of the experience. Despite a couple of botched moments, rather than worry about them, Roger and his band laughed them off. It was easy to understand that for Hodgson there was a certain degree of adjustment from “emptying my dishwasher last night to being here on stage.”  

The long standing ovation earned after “Fools Overture,” demanded an encore. The band obliged with the soft, slow tempo, “Two of Us,” found on Supertramp’s 1975 release “Crisis? What Crisis?” Once again Hodgson strummed on acoustic guitar, an instrument he continued with for the next song. The familiar chords that open “Give A Little Bit,” brought the audience to their feet and for the first time all night, the audience was in massive sing-a-long mode. Encouraged by the now openly enthusiastic crowd, Hodgson and company gave the gathering one final tune. With the wish that maybe the song “would bring some rain,” to the parched Arizona desert, the evening closed with the peppy, “It’s Raining Again.”

Those fortunate people that may have tickets for the future performances of Roger Hodgson’s 2014 “Breakfast in America” Tour might ask, so how was opening night? Was it wonderful, beautiful, magical?
It was bloody marvelous.

Roger Hodgson On Yes, Ringo And Supertramp: ‘The Time For A Reunion Has Passed’

 

October 23, 2013 9:49 AM


Did Supertramp fit into any genre? Were they rock? Pop? Prog-rock? Perhaps prog-pop? It’s tough to put a label on them that anyone will agree with. But what almost anyone would agree with is that the band’s music has stood the test of time, never really fitting in, but always sounding great. The band’s main songwriter and singer, Roger Hodgson, left the band three decades ago, but still tours on his own playing his most well-known songs. But it’s been 13 years since his last solo record. We thought it was about time we asked him about that, and a few other issues: namely, will Supertramp ever ride again, did Yes really ask him to join and what’s it like playing in Ringo Starr‘s band. Hodgson, by the way, is currently on the road (get tour info here) and is preparing to put out Classics Live 2

Ex Leader of Supertramp at Place Des Arts on October 17 and 18.

 

"Music is the Best Medicine" ~ Roger Hodgson

 

Echo Vedettes Article by Jean-Francois Brassard

 

Approximate English translation:  

 

As much as his songs are on everyone’s lips since the seventies, as much of his name is unknown. Roger Hodgson, the soul of Supertramp gone solo since 1984, is the creator of the anthems "Logical Song, " "Give A Little Bit," and "Take The Long Way Home" which he will sing at Place Des Arts on October 17 and 18. This is an Interview with a very talented writer, composer, singer and a true gentleman.  

 

Hi Jean-François, it's Roger. Even if I weren’t waiting for his call, he would not have to introduce himself. The voice of Roger Hodgson is as unique as his talent. It's from his adoptive California that the British born singer called us.  From his land of origin he kept his class, friendliness, and composure.  A few days before his two concerts he would give at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier at Place Des Arts on October 17 and 18, he kindly answered our questions.

 

In 1969, with his friend Rick Davies, Roger Hodgson created Supertramp. Success came pretty quickly in their home country and in North America, first in Montreal then the rest of Quebec where they were warmly welcomed. As soon as their third album "Crime Of The Century" was released in 1974, we recognized their talent, but it would take Americans five more years with the release of "Breakfast In America" which made them popular around the world. And in 1983, after releasing "Famous Last Words," Roger would leave the group.   Since then, he has released five albums under his name.

ROGER HODGSON

 

London: Royal Albert Hall – 26 May 2013

 

The name Roger Hodgson may not be familiar to some, but his voice will be. His songs have filled the airwaves for over three decades, with his former band Supertramp. Billed as ‘The Breakfast In America Tour’, this was a night of classic Supertramp songs, mixed with selections from his solo work.

 

The venue was packed to capacity, and you could feel a real buzz amongst the audience as they awaited the beginning of the show. The band (David J Carpenter on bass, Bryan Head on drums, Kevin Adamson on second keyboard, while a special mention should go to Aaron MacDonald, providing vocals, whistles and some tremendous saxophone moments) took their places on stage before Roger arrived, seating himself at his keyboard. The hauntingly familiar harmonica introduction of ‘Take The Long Way Home’ began the show, and it was incredible how good Roger’s voice sounds – he has lost none of that sweet honesty in his delivery. Roger has a unique charm in the manner that he addresses the audience, feeling like he is talking to you directly. He even humorously berates two audience members who arrive late, claiming “You just missed the best song!”

 

The set is a wonderful mixture of Supertramp’s golden moments, including ‘School’ and the beautiful ‘Hide In Your Shell’, to lesser known solo efforts such as ‘In Jeopardy’. I was quite touched that Roger took the time to read out letters from his web page and dedicate a song to some of the people in attendance. The hall erupted with the familiar intro of ‘Breakfast In America’,and the truly wonderful ‘Logical Song’ brought us to the intermission.

 

The second half offered an emotional ‘Death And A Zoo’ which left myself and my partner with tears in our eyes – demonstrating the power of music in conjuring up an image! Roger offered insight to the stories behind his songs, switching between playing acoustic guitar, keyboards and piano. We were treated to an outstanding ‘Dreamer’, and a truly majestic ‘Fools Overture’ that had the hairs on my arms standing up. By the time ‘Give A Little Bit’ had started, the audience were on their feet and dancing, some even opened umbrellas for ‘It’s Raining Again’, which brought the show to an end. During the evening, Roger had spoken about the healing effect of music and of forgetting your troubles for an hour or two, and that is exactly what happened to the audience. For any difficult times in your life, you should be able to get a show like the one Roger Hodgson gave us – on prescription!

EXCERPT ~ It's Raining Again as Roger Hodgson delights Atlanta Botanical Gardens


August 19, 2013

By: Andrew Snook

 

Roger"Mesmerizing", "haunting", "beautiful", "magnificent" and "wonderful" were just some of the superlatives that fans used to describe Roger Hodgson's performance at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens on Sunday night.

 

On an evening when a steady drizzle fell, occasionally giving way to heavier showers, the Atlanta Botanical Garden hosted a crowd of about 2,000 who sat on the rapidly developing quagmire that had been the lawn, watching Roger Hodgson in concert. For those unfamiliar with the name, Hodgson wrote and sang some of the greatest musical hits of the 1970's when he was a driving force behind one of the biggest acts of that time, Supertramp.

 

Hodgson was in Atlanta as part of his "Breakfast in America" tour and despite the very wet lawn, the Atlanta Botanical Garden was the perfect location for this concert. This is one of the smaller venues on this tour and to be privileged enough to watch Hodgson and his band here was just wonderful. Hodgson provides an ethereal musical experience and the Atlanta Botanical Garden in the rain was the perfect environment for the evening's music.

Roger Hodgson
 

ROGER HODGSON SINGER-SONGWRITER FORMERLY OF SUPERTRAMP RETURNS TO THE U.S. WITH BREAKFAST IN AMERICA TOUR

Legendary singer and composer brings shows stateside beginning August 11
in Costa Mesa, California, and gets set to launch
Classics Live 2 CD.

 

LOS ANGELES, CA, July 30, 2013—Following on the heels of sellout shows in Australia, the U.K., and Europe, Roger Hodgson formerly of Supertramp will return to the U.S. with his Breakfast in America Tour. A series of select dates start August 11 at the Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa, California, and will include at least eight other stops on both coasts. 

 

Concurrent with the tour, Hodgson has announced the forthcoming release of a new CD, Classics Live 2. The disc joins Classics Live 1 in the Hodgson catalog, which is available through his Store and iTunes.

Critically hailed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time, ironically many in the U.S. may not know the name Roger Hodgson, but would instantly recognize his voice and the classic Supertramp hits he wrote and sang: “Give a Little Bit,” Take the Long Way Home,” Dreamer,”The Logical Song,”It’s Raining Again,” and “Breakfast in America.”

 

Hodgson helped propel Supertramp to international superstardom in the 70’s with album sales of well over 60 million, including 1979’s stellar blockbuster, Breakfast in America, which alone sold upwards of 20 million copies. Timeless in nature, his songs have played on the radio continuously for more than thirty-five years. Now, in concert, Hodgson reignites memories and emotions with a heart-stirring voice that both critics and fans declare is sounding better than ever.

Uniting generations, Hodgson transports baby boomers back to their youth while giving younger concertgoers a taste of why his classic songs have endured. With his repertoire also including fan favorites such as “Child of Vision,”  “Fool’s Overture,” “Hide in Your Shell,” “Even in the Quietest Moments,” and “School,” audiences are once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp. Accompanied by a four-piece band, Hodgson also performs favorites from his solo albums such as “Only Because of You,” “Lovers in the Wind,” and “In Jeopardy.”

 

“The power of the music was indisputable with many of the audience in tears of joy at the memories and emotions the songs evoked.  It was like seeing Supertramp back in their heyday.”  Evening Herald

 

“Frequently entertaining the audience with stories about the origins of his songs, Hodgson connects deeply with the fans in a way few stars of his stature do.”  San Diego Reader

 

“Remarkably, the humble musical legend is back and his signature voice sounds stronger than ever… to see and hear Roger Hodgson in concert today is simply to experience a sort of musical homecoming.” Rolling Stone 

"This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band. When you can catch a show, go. An evening with Roger Hodgson will raise your standards of concert-going."  Huffington Post

 

The Breakfast in America Tour U.S. dates are:

 

Aug 11 - Costa Mesa, CA - Pacific Amphitheatre

Aug 12 - Snoqualmie, WA - Snoqualmie Casino

Aug 18 - Atlanta, GA - Atlanta Botanical Garden

Oct 20 - New Bedford, MA - Zeiterion Theatre

Rochester Jazz Fest 2013: Paloma Reviews Roger Hodgson
 

Tonight I heard a different side of Roger Hodgson, the still unmistakable voice of Supertramp, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre. Hodgson didn’t talk much during his two hour, 22 song show, but when he did, it was in reference to writing song lyrics from deep within during times of personal challenges or struggles.
 

Hodgson was with a four-man band, and for “The Awakening,” Hodgson sang with the bass player and the winds player, and their well-blended voices offered a fresh insight into what the future may sound like.
The harmonics of Supertramp was certainly one aspect of its playing that I enjoyed, so when Hodgson said he’d like to record the song someday, my vote would be yes.
 

Hodgson did not seem to disappoint the audience filling the Eastman Theatre, several of whom (including me) carried original albums with them. He opened with “The Long Way Home” and played many favorites, including “Breakfast in America,” “The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “It’s Raining Again,” and a dancing-in-the-aisles version of “Give a Little Bit.”
 

As Eastman is generally my venue for covering the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, I put up a big cheer when Hodgson said he might like to come back to perform here with the RPO (perhaps for “Fool’s Overture” or, better still, an orchestral version of “Death and a Zoo?”). Last year, Sarah McLachlan performed with the RPO at CMAC, so I can imagine a collaboration for them with Hodgson.

Adelaide, AU ~  April 5, 2013 ~ Reflection by Lee
 

Roger opened the night himself without any earlier performer. He just walked on in behind a smile, sat down to his keyboard and pumped out a jaw-dropping Take the Long Way Home. I am not ashamed to say that during his next song School I wiped away a few tears. God sakes, I had to pull myself together, I’m a man.

 

The classics continued. He spoke humbly and gave his time generously between songs dedicating some to audience members for reasons varying from long distance travellers, birthday and even long-time fan support. He is the man I always expected him to be – warm and honest.
 

A special mention needs to be made of the four piece band. They are clearly great musicians with a wonderful understanding of the nuances and timing of the songs performed. This was particularly evident during the song Fool’s Overture performed after the interval and near the end of the two hour plus concert. Amazing stuff.
 

I am not a particularly Christian man however on this night heaven and earth rotated pretty close as Roger drew the breath of angels to deliver an ethereal performance unequalled in all my born days. Where does that voice come from?

I see now that in labeling the concert “Roger Hodgson and Special Guests” we were in fact, the special guests. Thank you Roger.
 

Lee
 

p.s. Standing at the stage front as the concert finished Roger reached down as he was leaving and shook my hand – very cool!

Cleaning for a Reason
 Roger Hodgson Honored for Support of
 Cleaning For A Reason




 

Cleaning for a Reason




 

  Roger Hodgson gives more than a little bit.
To the world, Roger Hodgson is one of the most gifted composers, songwriters, and lyricists of our time.

To the foundation, he’s someone who knows the difference one person or one organization can make when you just “give a little bit.” In 2012, Hodgson bestowed the rights to his song aptly named “Give a Little Bit” to Cleaning For A Reason, the foundation that makes a difference for women with cancer through free house cleanings.

Roger with Tom Heveron, Cleaning for a Reason Partner & President of Beachland Cleaning Service of Vero Beach, FL

   


View Cleaning For A Reason
Appreciation Award presentation:


 

In Hodgson’s own words, “It’s just one of those songs that has a profound yet beautiful and simple message–’give a little bit’ and show you care. I know it is giving to others that makes me happy. If we could all ‘give a little bit’ each day, we would make the world a better place.”;
 

According to the singer’s manager Linda Tyler, “Roger Hodgson, cofounder of Supertramp, is the original singer/songwriter of Give a Little Bit, The Logical Song, Breakfast in America, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, School, It’s Raining Again, Fool’s Overture, and many more. Many people do not realize that although Roger and Supertramp’s other cofounder shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs.”
 

Regarding Hodgson’s current projects, Tyler replied, “You can see Roger live in concert. He is currently on his world tour and selling out shows all over the globe in addition to receiving fantastic review from media and fans alike. Be sure to also visit Roger’s YouTube channel at http:www.youtube.com/MrRogerHodgson.”

Roger Hodgson brings Supertramp sound to Clearwater
 

By SEAN DALY

 

Times Pop Music Critic

 

There was nothing "logical" about Supertramp, of course. Even the band's chief braintrust, Roger Hodgson, will tell you that. Forty-four years after the British pop/rock/prog/jazz/klezmer/you-name-it band started confounding fans and this music critic alike, the group remains a head-scratcher to categorize, a merger of found sounds, kazoo zings and incongruous (but still pretty awesome) sax solos.

 

Were the boys trying to be difficult? Was the chaos planned?

 

"It was not by design, I can tell you that," laughs Hodgson, the 63-year-old composer of The Logical Song, Take the Long Way Home and Give a Little Bit. "Even though I've been influenced by many musicians over the years, I never tried to make music to fit into any category. When I lose myself in the sound, when I get my mind out of the way, that's when the music happens, that's when inspiration happens."

 

Hodgson bolted Supertramp 30 years ago; the creative, often incendiary spark with co-founder Rick Davies that drove the band to success also led to its fracture. But Hodgson adores his cuts with the old crew, and he'll play many of them — while robustly backed by a rock symphony — at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on Friday. About the live solo show, he says rather confidently: "It will be a highlight in people's concertgoing lives."

For Immediate Release

Roger Hodgson Adds Second Concert

 

By Popular Demand - Performing
October 17 & 18 at Place des Arts’ Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier

 

 
 

Due to overwhelming response from Montrealers, co-founder and original singer-songwriter from Supertramp, Roger Hodgson, will perform two concerts with his band at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier on October 17 and 18, 2013 as part of his Breakfast in America world tour.
 

The legendary voice of Supertramp, will play Wilfrid-Pelletier for the ninth time in seven years!  In fact, his 2006 sold out concert there was the set for Roger’s #1 Multi-Platinum live DVD:
Take The Long Way Home – Live In Montreal.

 

Hodgson’s unique relationship with Montreal audiences that has lasted for close to 40 years amazes the artist.  Hodgson comments,  “I'm very pleased to be adding a second show at Place de Arts and that the love affair and long history I have with the people and the city of Montreal is still so much alive. I'm very excited for everyone to hear the band and the show I am bringing which I believe is the best ever. Audiences are going to be taken on a rich and memorable journey with many surprises.”  

Media Reviews
 

“..to the adoring fans who rise to their feet as Hodgson and his four-piece backing band take the stage with the FM radio staple "Take The Long Way Home," it might as well be 1979 all over again.”
Rolling Stone 

“This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band. When you can catch a show, go. An evening with Roger Hodgson will raise your standards of concert-going.” Huffington Post

“It has been nearly 30 years since Hodgson performed with Supertramp.  He certainly can lay claim to the best of the band's catalogue and Hodgson has one of the most impressive backing bands around. In some ways, they are even better than his former band mates in Supertramp.” Niagara Gazette

A
udience Reviews

Best concert I have ever seen and I have been to a lot. I am still singing, dancing, smiling and cannot get the amazing play list out of my head. Roger and his band are truly amazing. ” 

 

“So AWESOME! I have loved your music since I first saw Supertramp in 1976 at the Forum... Been a huge fan ever since! You touring again has been such a wonderful surprise ! Love it!!!”
 
 
“WOW – great show. That guitar just drove the crowd crazy when he strummed the opening to ‘Give A Little Bit’ during the encore.....a giant sing along ensued with everyone on their feet!!! What a great sound. His voice is still terrific.”

 
“…Your concert brought back memories, beautiful memories of great teenage feelings and fantastic pleasures. Having seen Supertramp a few times during the Golden Years, I knew that the band was a great.  But I always knew that the heart & soul of the band was you, and after tonight I will also say that your current band sounds better than Supertramp…”

On October 17 and 18, Roger and his band will take the stage to thrill fans with unforgettable songs such as Take the Long Way Home, The Logical Song,  Breakfast in America, Dreamer, School, Even in the Quietest MomentsIt's Raining Again, Fool’s Overture and Give a Little Bit

Roger Hodgson, Legendary Singer-Songwriter
formerly of Supertramp,

Returns to Montreal October 18 with the
Continuation of His Highly Successful
‘Breakfast in America’ Tour

 


Montreal has always been a city close to Roger’s heart, as evidenced in his DVD Take the Long Way Home – Live in Montreal  that was recorded at Place des Arts in 2006. Montrealers have embraced Roger as one of their most beloved artists, filling the venue time and time again since the filming of his only DVD to date.

 

"Frequently entertaining the audience with stories about the origins of his songs, Hodgson connects deeply with the fans in a way few stars of his stature do."  San Diego Reader

 

"The power of the music was indisputable with many of the audience in tears of joy at the memories and emotions the songs evoked.  It was like seeing Supertramp back in their heyday."  Evening Herald

 

"It was a love fest from the get go..."  Montreal Gazette 

 

"All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan when actually I was and am a Roger Hodgson fan."  David Wild, Contributing Editor, Rolling Stone

 

Universally hailed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time, Roger Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang Supertramp’s globally successful and enduring anthems – timeless songs that helped the band sell well over 60 million albums to date. His unmistakable voice also propels Supertramp fan favorites that he created such as “Hide in Your Shell,” “Child of Vision,” "Don't Leave Me Now,” and “Lord is it Mine.”  In concert, Hodgson also delivers select songs such as “In Jeopardy” and “Lovers in the Wind” from his five solo album releases.

 

Hodgson’s latest CD, Classics Live, is available through iTunes or from RogerHodgsonStore.

 

In May 2012, Roger Hodgson was honored by the French Minister of Culture with a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters.  This decoration, one of the most prestigious in all of France, was established in 1957 to recognize significant contributions to the arts.

 

Uniting generations at his concerts, Hodgson transports baby boomers back to their youth and gives younger generations a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. Audiences are once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp. Hodgson reflected, “I love performing these songs which continue to resound for me as a performer and for the fans.  My songs come from a very personal place inside me and they carry my beliefs and my dreams and my philosophy of life.  I understand the deep connection that fans have with my songs that have been a part of so many peoples’ lives around the world.”

 

ROGER HODGSON – “BREAKFAST IN AMERICA” at Place des Arts’ Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Friday, October 18.

 

TICKETS: VIP package available which includes sound check access, an autographed CD, and a seat in the first seven rows.

Legendary Singer-Songwriter Roger Hodgson “Gives A Little Bit”
at Super Bowl Before Kicking Off 2013 World Tour


New Version of Classic Roger Hodgson Song
Provides Soundtrack for Coca-Cola Ad

 

 


NEW ORLEANS, LA,
February 5, 2013—In the wake of Super Bowl XLVII, some will remember which commercials were the best as much as the game itself.  With this year’s ads prompting emotions ranging from laughter to tears, prime among them was a 30-second spot for Coca-Cola utilizing the song “Give a Little Bit” as its soundtrack – a song written and composed by Roger Hodgson and originally released in 1977 by Supertramp, the iconic rock band he co-founded. This new recording is Hodgson's latest version of his classic hit, which is now available on iTunes. His latest release Classics Live can be found on iTunes as well, or at www.rogerhodgson.com.

 

The Coca-Cola “Security Cameras” Super Bowl ad, which combined the sounds of “Give a Little Bit” with images of people engaging in acts of generosity and goodwill as captured by security cameras around the world, was the most watched post-game commercial on the NFL’s own website, with views exceeding a quarter-million. The spot prompted Hodgson to comment, "The images in the ad go well with the meaning of my song. It's just one of those songs that has a profound yet beautiful and simple message – ‘give a little bit’ and show you care. I know it is giving to others that makes me happy. If we could all ‘give a little bit’ each day, we would make the world a better place.”

 

Give a Little Bit” has been used to help raise support for many charities worldwide and remains a favorite of millions of Hodgson fans around the globe. It has become a unifying anthem that brings out the best in people whether it’s the 60,000 strong Wembley Stadium audience that rose to its feet to sing along with Hodgson at the Princess Diana tribute concert in 2007, or any of his other concerts that he gives around the world today – the song reminds us of the better part of ourselves and inspires us to express it.

 

A live version of “Give a Little Bit” is available on Roger's latest CD release, Classics Live - a spectacular collection of live performances from acoustic, band, and orchestra shows recorded on his 2010 world tour. Fans the world over have also been thrilled with the CD’s new versions of unforgettable hits such as “Take the Long Way Home,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Hide in Your Shell,” “Breakfast in America,” “Only Because of You," “Lord is it Mine,”  The Logical Song,”  “School,” “Dreamer,” “Two of Us,” and “It's Raining Again.” Hodgson will launch the latest leg of his ongoing Breakfast in America Tour on March 22 in Clearwater, Florida – with shows for 2013 spanning the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, and Europe.

 

Rolling Stone noted: “Remarkably, the humble musical legend is back and his signature voice sounds stronger than ever… to see and hear Roger Hodgson in concert today is simply to experience a sort of musical homecoming.”

Added the Huffington Post: “This is the real deal: a legendary music man in brilliant form and shimmering presence.”

Hailed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time, Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang Supertramp’s most globally successful and enduring anthems – timeless songs that helped the band sell well over 60 million albums to date.

Roger Hodgson, Legendary Singer-Songwriter formerly of Supertramp,

Announces Changes to ‘Breakfast in America’
Tour Schedule Due to Hurricane Sandy

 

Hodgson Joins Efforts to ‘Give a Little Bit’ to Red Cross

 

Roger Hodgson

 

Prompted by the damaging impact of Hurricane Sandy to the East Coast, legendary songwriter and vocalist ROGER HODGSON of the group Supertramp, announced several changes to the North American leg of his popular “Breakfast in America” tour, which resumes tomorrow, including fundraising for the Red Cross.

 

"We have been closely following the effects and recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy and our sympathy goes out to all of those whose lives have been affected.” Roger Hodgson commented. “Knowing the challenges that many people are currently facing, we are working with each promoter to reschedule shows and to find ways to 'give a little bit' to help the local communities.”   

 

Hodgson’s song, “Give a Little Bit” was used this week during ABC TV’s “Day of Giving” telethon encouraging all of us to reach out to the victims of Hurricane Sandy by giving whatever we can to the Red Cross. Click here for the lyrics.

 

A portion of proceeds from Roger Hodgson’s Nov. 8 concert at Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, NJ will be donated to the American Red Cross.

 

Tickets for all rescheduled shows will be honored on their new dates, and Hodgson will be offering a special bonus surprise at certain venues for current ticket holders!  So hold onto your tickets!


Roger Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969. His current Breakfast in America Tour celebrates his band’s top selling album, which sold over 25 million copies and was #1 worldwide. The current tour, his first US tour with a band in 30 years, features all his self-penned hit songs - “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,”  “Dreamer,” “School,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “It's Raining Again,” and “Fool's Overture” and many more…. 

 

Click below to hear Roger Hodgson’s classic “Give a Little Bit,” which he has again offered to the Red Cross in support of Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, as he did with Hurricane Katrina and the 2004 Tsunami. The song captures a humanitarian spirit which at times like these, is an inspiring reminder of the difference we can all make by ‘giving a little bit’ to support these charitable organizations in their extraordinary relief efforts.

Roger Hodgson gives (more than) a little bit on stage ~ EXCERPT

 
 
Nov 2, 2012   |

Written by
Bill Nutt
For the Daily Record

 

The man who wrote and sang “Give a Little Bit” is feeling more than a little generous these days.


Roger Hodgson, whose distinctive tenor voice and introspective lyrics were signatures of the band Supertramp, has returned to performing after a hiatus of some 20 years. And, in his own words, he’s “having the time of (his) life.”


“It’s better now than it ever was,” says Hodgson. “I’m older and wiser. I feel I have more to give the audience. I don’t think I’ve ever sounded better, and I have to say that my band is the best band I’ve ever put together.”


Hodgson, who is playing two dates in New Jersey, finds himself in an odd position, however. The songs he did with Supertramp in the 1970s and early 1980s – such as “The Logical Song,” “Take the Long Way Home,” and “Dreamer” – are still staples of radio.


But Hodgson’s own name is less well known than that of Supertramp. “I’m not a known quantity to a lot of people,” he says. “People have been hearing these songs for years, but it’s taken me a while to establish my own name.”


His recording career actually dates to 1969, when he played guitar on the song “Duck Pond” by a group called People Like Us. At the time, he was fresh out of boarding school in Buckinghamshire.


Less than a year later, he was tapped to sing lead on “Mr. Boyd,” a song by a pop band called Argosy. The members of that impromptu group included the piano player Reginald Dwight, who would later change his name to Elton John.

 

“Yes, Reggie did a very nice job on that song,” says Hodgson with a laugh. More seriously, he adds, “I was totally tongue-tied. I was 19 and working with these red-hot musicians. It was an amazing baptism.”

Supertramp at Ridgefield Playhouse Benefit ~ EXCERPT

 

 

Erik Ofgang
Tuesday, October 30, 2012

 

Roger

Roger Hodgson, the voice of Supertramp,

will perform at the Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, Nov. 3.


 In the 1970s, Roger Hodgson wrote the song "Give A Little Bit," with his band Supertramp. He said the song was his ode to love and helping others.


"It was really my anthem championing love, championing caring and giving," said Hodgson, who was the lead singer, chief songwriter and pianist for Supertramp.


"It was a message that I really believed. At a certain point I realized that one of the secrets in life is giving. I realized that actually I get more joy and fulfillment from giving than I do in just taking," he said.


Hodgson will be giving Supertramp fans a chance to hear all the group's biggest hits when he performs at the Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m. The concert is a fundraising gala for the playhouse, which is a nonprofit organization. There's a pre-show cocktail party for all ticket holders from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. It includes hors d'oeuvres and an open bar.


During the 1970s, Supertramp charted such mega hits as "It's Raining Again," "Fools Overture, "Give A Little Bit, "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home" and "The Logical Song." Hodgson wrote these songs and will perform them and others with his band at this concert.


In a recent phone interview Hodgson was sincere, thoughtful and full of genuine kindness as he discussed his career and upcoming show.


Q: Can you tell me a little about your live shows? ...

Changes to “Breakfast in America” Tour Schedule Due to Hurricane Sandy

 

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

 

Because of the damaging impact of Hurricane Sandy, we are making some changes to the US East Coast leg of our “Breakfast in America” tour. 

 

From Roger: "We have been closely following the path of Hurricane Sandy and witnessing how the flooding, high winds, downed trees and power outages have been disrupting the lives of millions of people.  Our sympathy goes out to all those whose lives have been affected. For the safety of all those traveling to my concerts, we are shifting the dates for the first three shows.” 

 

Our East Coast tour will now begin in Boston (Lynn, MA) with the show on its original date, Sunday, Nov 4th.  The shows for Nov 1st in Philadelphia (Glenside, PA), Nov 2nd in Long Island (Westbury, NY), and Nov 3rd in Ridgefield, CT will be rescheduled for either another day in November or the beginning of next year.  

 

So, the shows will go on!  Roger is very much looking forward to playing for you soon.  Hold on to your ticket and we’ll keep you updated as soon as we finalize new dates.  All other shows will proceed as planned at this time – see the full tour schedule or the Facebook events page.

THE LEGENDARY SINGER-SONGWRITER FORMERLY OF SUPERTRAMP

**BRINGING HIS FULL BAND TO AUSTRALIA FOR THE FIRST TIME**


Roger Hodgson has been recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters, and lyricists of our time. As the co-founder and legendary voice of Supertramp, he gave us the timeless classics such as “Give a little bit,” “The Logical Song,” “School,” “Dreamer,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “Breakfast In America,” “Child of Vision,” “Fool’s Overture,” and so many others that have become the soundtrack of our lives. Many people don’t realize that although Roger and Supertramp’s other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs. 

 

Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969. During the 14 years that he led the band prior do his departure, Supertramp became a worldwide phenomenon with sales of over 60 million albums. Although Roger departed the band in 1983 and moved away from the Los Angeles music scene to Northern California to raise his children and be close to nature, he is still regarded by many as Supertramp’s spiritual and creative force. 


His songs have stood the test of time and are more relevant today, if not more so, than when they were released. Hodgson recently received the honour of two awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for “Give a Little Bit” and “Breakfast in America” being in the top played songs in their repertory.

 

Hodgson is currently on his world tour and selling out shows around the globe, in addition to receiving fantastic reviews from media and fans alike. Don’t miss this one-off opportunity

Roger Hodgson's songwriting secret: 'I wrote them when I was alone' ~ EXCERPT

Roger Hodgson today and in his Supertramp days


The song titles alone bring back memories: "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home," "Give a Little Bit", "Breakfast in America," "The Logical Song." But fan testimony — particularly on the subject of lyrics — has convinced singer-songwriter Roger Hodgson, formerly of '70s rockers Supertramp, that his is no nostalgia act.


"The songs I'm playing were written 30-plus years ago, but they don't sound old," Hodgson says. "They still sound fresh. They're still very relevant — some are more relevant today than when they were written. 'Give a Little Bit,' I think, has a message that is more needed today than when I wrote it. 'Please tell me who I am' — there are a lot of confused people in world. It's a tough time to be alive right now. How do you find true happiness?


"It never ceases to amaze me, really, what different songs have meant to people. I hear everything from 'They saved my life during my teen years' to 'We fell in love to the songs.' Or they used the songs at their weddings. The thing that amazes me is the depth of connection people have with these songs."

Former Supertramp frontman takes long way to Gallo Center ~ "EXCERPT"

 

By Lisa Millegan Renner
lrenner@modbee.com


Roger Hodgson said it can be frustrating to market his shows. People don't know that he's the singer and songwriter behind such Supertramp hits as "The Logical Song," "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home" and "Give a Little Bit."


The Great Britain native is hoping that by naming his tour after "Breakfast in America," Supertramp's mega-selling 1979 album, fans will catch on. He performs Saturday at the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto as part of a 34-city U.S. tour.


"This is kind of like the best of Supertramp in a way," he said in a recent phone interview. "People are being knocked out with this show."

 

adv_p1026_G26_scenecover
Hodgson, 62, will perform with a four-piece band of players in their 30s and 40s. "I wanted young, hungry, passionate musicians," he said. "The band is a great band. I'm singing the songs better than I've sung them. The vocal harmonies are going to knock people sideways, they're so beautiful."


Supertramp was co-founded England in 1970 by Hodgson and Rick Davies. The group's first big hit came in 1974 with Hodgson's "Dreamer." The two wrote separately, but like John Lennon and Paul McCartney, they maintained a joint writing credit during their collaboration.


During the next nine years, the group released four studioalbums, achieving international success with "Breakfast in America," which sold 20 million albums. But in 1983, Hodgson decided to walk away from it all so he could live a simpler life with his family in accordance with his spiritual values.

Roger Hodgson is Bringing His Band Down Under
as Part of His World Wide Breakfast in America Tour!

 

Roger with guitar


Special Announcement of March and April 2013 Tour

 

One of the planet’s finest singers and songwriters played with only one other accompanist three years ago and sold-out his tour of Australia. This time the writer and singer of Supertramp’s anthems brings his full band Down Under –
FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME !!
 

Roger returns to Australia for a highly anticipated exclusive tour of seven shows in March and April 2013!  Australians have been asking for Roger’s return, and we have been listening! You have Roger back and this time, with his full band! Roger says, “I am very happy to be returning to Australia – I felt so welcomed when I was there in 2010.  It was a great tour and I am really looking forward to sharing my music with all of you again.”
 

Universally recognized as one of the most gifted composers and songwriters to have ever put pen to paper, Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock.  Founding Supertramp in 1969, Hodgson’s dulcet tones and beautifully crafted lyrics helped his former band sell in excess of 60 million albums, transforming them into a worldwide phenomenon.  Although he departed the band in 1983, for many he is still regarded as the spiritual and creative force behind Supertramp.
 

Join Roger as he and his band perform the timeless classics he wrote and composed such as The Logical Song,” Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,” Dreamer,” School,” “Take the Long Way Home,” It's Raining Again,” Child of Vision,” Even in the Quietest Moments,” Fool's Overture” as well as favorites from his solo albums such as In Jeopardy, Only Because of You,” and Lovers in the Wind.”
 

See what the press had to say when Roger last toured Australia in April 2010:
 

Roger Hodgson is one of the contemporary pop worlds great talents and it’s well worth making the effort to see his show, pay homage and be thoroughly entertained by a quality individual. His performance was exemplary. Vocally he seems actually stronger and more assured than when he was a younger man making multi million selling albums. His guitar playing and keyboard work was superb.” ~ Hey Hey My My
 

If you were ever a fan of Supertramp then attending a Roger Hodgson concert these days is as good as it gets and it gets good.  As the principal songwriter of Supertramp and lead singer of the songs he wrote, Hodgson solo sounds exactly like Supertramp which is a good thing.  The Roger Hodgson setlist reads like a history of music.” ~ Undercover
 

From a fan~
 

ROGER HODGSON is rock royalty in the truest sense. After seeing Roger here in Australia in 2010 and listening to his voice sing the songs that he has written is quite an amazing experience. Rogers voice has actually improved over the years and now playing with a full band and has himself and other members sounding like Supertramp, more so then what Supertramp sounds like. Attending the shows that Roger puts together is more like a life experience then just a simple concert, the musical experience will stick with me forever. I implore people to try and see Roger perform with his band, you wont be disappointed. I am going to see Roger perform 5 shows in Australia over 9 days in 2013, and to have Roger come back here to Australia after just 3 years simply shows the talent that he poses, and how privileged we are to have him back here, even after writing such hits nearly 40yrs ago, Breakfast In America, Logical Song, Take The Long Way Home, Dreamer, Give A Little Bit, etc etc and still hearing them currently on radio today shows how strong Rogers song writing skills are and the musical talent he oozes. Rogers all round music credentials is a class above most musicians his songs simply say it all for him, i implore people to try and see Roger perform his magic sound on stage, you wont ever forget it. - RICK

Roger Hodgson, Legendary Singer-Songwriter
formerly of Supertramp,
Returns for ‘Breakfast in America’ this Fall

 

Roger with guitar


First Major U.S. Tour in 30 Years Hits East, West Coasts Amid Sold-Out European Dates and Critical Acclaim

 

Fresh on the heels of his current sold-out European tour and additional sold-out performances earlier this year in the U.S. and South America, legendary songwriter and vocalist Roger Hodgson, co-founder and original singer-songwriter from Supertramp, continues the U.S. leg of his popular “Breakfast in America” tour this fall amid tremendous critical acclaim.

 

The 34-date tour - which features all his hit songs including “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,”  “Dreamer,” “School,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “It's Raining Again,” and “Fool's Overture” - is his first major U.S. tour since his departure from Supertramp in 1983.

 

No longer the young shy virtuoso, he is now a charismatic and full hearted performer, his signature voice sounding better than ever.  As Rolling Stone noted following a performance earlier this year: “Remarkably, the humble musical legend is back and his signature voice sounds stronger than ever… To see and hear Roger Hodgson in concert today is not simply to experience a sort of musical homecoming, it is also the only real way to hear some of the most beloved songs ever sung as they were meant to be sung by the man who first brought them to life.” Added the Huffington Post: “This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band.”

 

Universally hailed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our times, Roger Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang Supertramp’s globally successful and enduring anthems – timeless songs that helped his former band sell well over 60 million albums to date. His unmistakable voice also propels Supertramp fan favorites he created such as “Hide in Your Shell,” “Child of Vision,” “Even in the Quietest Moments,” “Don't Leave Me Now,” and “Lord is it Mine.”Hodgson delivers all of those songs, as well as solo compositions such as “Only Because of You,” “In Jeopardy,” “Lovers in the Wind,” and “Along Came Mary” from his five solo album releases, on his world tour.  

 

Uniting generations at his concerts, Hodgson and his four-piece band transport baby boomers back to their youth and give younger generations a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. Breakfast in America had sales of over 20 million copies and hit the #1 spot on album charts worldwide. Audiences are once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp.

 

Hodgson closes his concerts with the crowd singing along to “Give a Little Bit,” a song heard in a recent video that went viral with over six million views. Hodgson's timeless composition has a universal message that is as relevant today as when he wrote it over 40 years ago. The newest version, “Give a Little Bit with Children’s Choir,” was just released as a single on iTunes.  Hodgson’s latest CD, “Classics Live, is available through iTunes or from
www.Rogerhodgson.com

 

Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969 and for many fans was the heart and creative force behind the band for the 14 years prior to his departure. Roger’s passion for his music and his art shines through in the magic and intimacy that is felt when he performs his songs in concert.

 

“Success in music to me is when I look out and I see a member of the audience crying or having ecstatic joy in their heart,” says Hodgson, who was awarded the Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture at a sold-out Paris concert earlier this year. “To me, how much I have shared my heart and been able to touch someone else in a positive way is the measure of success as an artist.” The San Diego Reader remarked on Roger, “Frequently entertaining the audience with stories about the origins of his songs, Hodgson connects deeply with the fans in a way few stars of his stature do.”

TOUR DATES

 

ROGER HODGSON


Former Supertramp Frontman Brings His ‘Breakfast in America’ Band Tour to the UK  

 

Legendary songwriter and vocalist Roger Hodgson has announced a limited run of UK dates in May 2013, which include a return to the Royal Albert Hall in London and the Philharmonic in Liverpool.  Tickets may be purchased online at www.bookingsdirect.com or on 0844 338 0000 from 0900 on Saturday 6 October.   These shows are a continuation of his 85 concert 2012 ‘Breakfast in America’ world tour with sold out performances across the US, Canada, South America and Europe.

 

Universally acclaimed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our times, Roger Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang such globally successful and enduring anthems as Give a Little Bit, The Logical Song, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, Breakfast In America, School, Child of Vision, Even in the Quietest Moments and Fool’s Overture – timeless songs that helped his former band sell well over 60 million albums to date.

 

Roger, of course, is prominent in the recently released Supertramp ‘Live In Paris ‘79’ DVD.  All the songs you see Hodgson singing lead vocals on in the classic line up are his songs that you will see him performing on his UK tour – no longer the young shy virtuoso, he is now a charismatic and full hearted performer, his signature voice sounding better than ever.  In 2012 he performed a sell-out show in Paris and was awarded the Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture.  Rolling Stone said of a recent show, “To the adoring fans who rise to their feet... it might as well be 1979 all over again.”

 

Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969 and for many fans was the heart and creative force behind the band for the 14 years prior to his departure. Roger’s passion for his music and his art shines through in the magic and intimacy that is felt when he performs his songs in concert. “Success in music to me is when I look out and I see a member of the audience crying or having ecstatic joy in their heart.  To me, how much I have shared my heart and been able to touch someone else in a positive way is the measure of success as an artist.” The San Diego Reader remarked on Roger, “Frequently entertaining the audience with stories about the origins of his songs, Hodgson connects deeply with the fans in a way few stars of his stature do.”

In his concerts, Roger performs his classic hits as well as some fan favourite solo works, such as Only Because of You and Lovers in the Wind.  To the vast number of UK fans who have eagerly requested and awaited his return he says simply, “I am delighted to be coming home again for a reunion with my British fans”. David Wild, Contributing Editor, Rolling Stone said, “Remarkably the humble musical legend is back and his signature voice sounds stronger than ever… To see and hear Roger Hodgson in concert today is not simply to experience a sort of musical homecoming. It is also the only real way to hear some of the most beloved songs ever sung as they were meant to be sung by the man who first brought them to life.”

How Can Supertramp's Logical Song Help You Connect With An Illogical World?

 

Breakfast in America (song)
Breakfast in America (song) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


By Jamie Anderson, Director, Global Solution Marketing, Web Channel & eCommerce Solutions, SAP


EXCERPTS:

 

When I was young it seemed that life was so wonderful, a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical…


Let me set the scene...

 

He’s taking no chances here, he skips straight to track 2 carefully guiding the needle to find it’s groove in the empty space between tracks, then…boom…the opening sequence of this amazing track kicks in and Roger Hodgson’s voice fills the room, piercing our senses with this joyful, bittersweet lament about the passage from childhood wonder and imagining, to adult conformity and servitude. And there was us, dressed in the uniform fashion of the time, on the cusp of becoming these sterile adolescents suddenly awakened from our hypnotic existence by two of the most unlikely heroes, Clarkey and Supertramp.

 

Watch what you say or they’ll be calling you a radical…


Although written sometime before appearing on the 1979 Grammy award-winning Breakfast in America, The Logical Song itself provides a thoughtful backdrop to the world we live in today and, perhaps, has even greater relevance now than it did then, particularly for those Enterprises who are out of touch with the new digital realities and behaviors of the growing number of Illogicals ...


In the song, Roger Hodgson recalls being sent to school as a kid and effectively being conditioned to conform to a world that seemed alien to his natural perceptions, a world that scorned those who ‘thought differently’, leading him to question the very nature of his (our) existence. Although the sentiment of a command and control world remains relevant today, the biggest change since then has been the democratization of information via the internet coupled with the adoption of social and mobile technologies leading to tech-savvy and better informed consumers (and citizens). It is actually incredibly ironic that over 30 years since Hodgson first sang those lyrics that it will likely be the ability to ‘think differently’ that will save many of those companies, the custodians of Machiavelli’s status quo, who still exhibit outmoded command and control techniques over customers (and employees).


 

Please tell me who I am…


The song finishes with a kind of rambling verse that curiously contains the lyric, “I’m feeling so illogical, d-d-d-digital” which makes me wonder now whether Hodgson was predicting a digital future? Perhaps not, but the answer to the question ‘Please tell me whom I am’ is one which, for Brands, will be embedded in their ability to evolve and remain relevant to an increasingly, illogical world.

Roger Hodgson Astounds the Audience at Ravinia Festival

Roger Hodgson co-founded the band Supertramp in 1969. He is considered the “voice of Supertramp” serving as the lead singer and writer of nearly all their hits throughout their peak of popularity in the seventies and early eighties. He left Supertramp in 1983 and he has had a series of critically acclaimed and successful solo albums. His appearance at Ravinia was eagerly anticipated by all those in attendance.


When Hodgson walked on stage he was greeted with thunderous applause, a clear indication that he was beloved by the crowd. He wore a great big grin and seemed genuinely moved by warm reception. He sat behind the keyboard and dove right into one of Supertramp’s big hits, Take the Long Way Home, which the audience adored.


One of the problems I have noticed at Ravinia is the late arriving crowd. After his first song, Hodgson noticed all the latecomers streaming in and he said, “You’re late. You’re missing the best song!” He went on to say that this was his first US band tour in many years and would be doing songs from Supertramp as well as from some solo albums. He mentioned that it is “great that my music has moved so many people.” He stated that, “Hopefully, one or two songs will bring you to a special point in your lives.” In his generous set of twenty songs he more than achieved that goal.

Roger Hodgson: Bringing back the sounds of 'Supertramp'

 

Published: Thursday, August 09, 2012, 6:00 AM

 

By Kyle O'Brien, Special to The Oregonian

Roger Hodgson spent more than a dozen years fronting the popular British rock band Supertramp.

Millions of people around the world know his signature songs -- "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home," "Give a Little Bit" and "The Logical Song." Bands such as the Goo Goo Dolls and Gym Class Heroes have covered his tunes.

Yet in some ways, Hodgson still flies under the radar.

"Most people know my voice and know my songs, but my name is still unrecognized," he said in a recent phone interview.

Hodgson will perform at the Oregon Zoo on Friday as part of his "Breakfast in America" tour, named after Supertramp's top-selling album from 1979. He said the tour carries the name of the vintage album so that people will recognize him.

"This is what we came up with to connect the dots," he said. "We wanted people to know that 'this is the guy that sings this song.'"

Hodgson has toured sporadically since he left Supertramp in 1983 to move to the mountains of Northern California, where he wanted to live a quiet, spiritual life and raise his children.

Music for Dreamers

 

Roger Hodgson plays at the Stadtpark - he plays like Supertramp did once and enthuses young and old  


by Nadine Lischick
Translated by Elke Beckett

 

We don't have many musicians nowadays who have the ability to unite generations. Roger Hodgson, former singer and composer of British band Supertramp, who performs at the Stadtpark Hamburg is one of them. The 62-year-old has just finished the opening track "Take the Long Way Home" when he discovers a little boy in the front rows. "Do you know who I am?" he jokingly asks.

 

Of course he does. Hodgson has sold more than 60 million albums with Supertramp and up to today every little child knows pieces like "It's Raining Again" or "The Logical Song". That is why this boy in the front row is not the only young visitor who came with his parents tonight.

 

There's a man onstage who is a part of music history. Through an ad in the music magazine "Melody Maker" Hodgson got to know Rick Davies in 1969. Together they founded Supertramp. Whereas Davies was responsible for the more complex songs, the big hits were all penned by Hodgson. But in 1983 they had a quarrel and Hodgson left the band. One year later he published his first studio album. Since then he has been visiting Hamburg quite a couple of times but mostly only accompanied by sax player Aaron MacDonald.

 

But tonight at the Stadtpark, it's different. Hodgson, who makes you feel like 1970 with his long grey-brown hair and his hippie waistcoat has brought a four-piece band to support him on bass, drums, keyboards and saxophone. Together those five musicians come surprisingly close to the original Supertramp sound. Of course, Hodgson himself is very much responsible for that. His great voice has not been changed by the years and has this distinctive, youthful sound up till today.  It's mostly Supertramp songs on the set for tonight, among them "School" and "Lady", but also pieces which Hodgson has not played in quite a while, for instance "C'est le bon". They are complemented by a couple of songs from Hodgson's numerous solo albums. "In Jeopardy", "Lovers in The Wind" and "Hide in Your Shell" are fitting in perfectly. Hodgson's band has brought along lots of toys and thus the pieces are nicely orchestrated, with glockenspiel and rattle, melodica and recorder.

 

But not only the songs are warming and pleasant but also the man himself. The Briton is probably one of the kindest musicians in this world. "It is so much fun to watch you", he says with a big grin.

 

"I love to see people who are dancing and having fun." His ex-bandmates did not appear to be so content when they played the O2 world Hamburg last year. They are mostly filling those stadiums due to Hodgson's songs. But even though tonight there's only a fraction of those crowds that Hodgson was used to be playing to together with Supertramp, he does not look as though he would prefer to be anywhere else in this very moment but at the Stadtpark Hamburg.

 

"The next song is for all you dreamers and especially for those little ones", that's what Hodgson says before playing "Dreamer" and he is once more addressing the young boy in the front row. "Are you having fun?" He does. For Hodgson is playing one song for eternity after the other during a varied and entertaining concert. Most of them are as light-hearted as "Breakfast in America", where Hodgson sings about his dream to perform in California one day, just as the Beatles did. But Hodgson has always been capable of writing profound lyrics as well. The ten-minute long, epic "Fool's Overture" which contains a quote from one of Winston Churchill's speeches, is highly political and deals with WWII.

 

And Hodgson and his band are always up for an experiment as well. During "Death and A Zoo" he hits a sampling pad and he actually acoustically transforms the Stadtpark into a zoo with his animal sounds. The song is from his solo album "Open the door" which was published in 2000. "Does anyone know the album?" asks Hodgson. "Yeeeeesssss!" yells some guy next to us. Supertramp was his first ever concert, he tells us later. In 1983, when he was 13, at the Volkspark stadium Hamburg. His parents took him along. That was "sheer happiness". And somehow he looks like he is experiencing the same today. His daughter is too small, but one day he is going to take her to a Roger Hodgson concert. Just like he was taken along back then and just like today the boy in the front row was taken along. This is something not many artists are achieving anymore these days.

Breakfast in America World Tour

 

 

South America

 

What a phenomenal tour of South America! Roger and his band performed a total of 16 shows in five countries. Audiences were fantastic! We received warm welcomes at every stop along the way. What a surprise in Buenos Aires when Roger arrived at the venue to be greeted by fans serenading him with Give a Little Bit – it brought a big smile to his face and it touched him deeply when the local Supertramp cover band strolled into his dressing room after the show in Belo Horizonte singing a tribute to him in gratitude for the legacy of music he created. We were all impacted in many ways by our month in South America and can’t wait to go back!


Read full reviews from South America journalists, including these two below, on Roger’s site.

 

“It was one of the best shows I have ever seen.”

Danielle Borges - LERIASELLIXOS

 

“’Mr. Supertramp’" got about three thousand people of all ages chanting, whistling, shouting, and even kissing due to emotion.”
Joel Romero – yoconciertos

Roger Hodgson Continues The Breakfast In America Tour

Posted on May 22, 2012 by Dan Harr

 

Roger

Roger Hodgson, the legendary voice of Supertramp, recently completed the first leg of his “Breakfast in America Tour” with sold out shows across the US and South America.  On June 6, Hodgson heads to Germany to kick off a summer run through Germany, Holland, Italy, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Spain, and Switzerland, before returning to perform in North America in August.

 

Fans the world over have been thrilled with Hodgson’s unforgettable songs such as “Breakfast in America,” “The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” and “It’s Raining Again.”  Hodgson and his band perform these timeless songs worldwide, as they take you on a magical musical journey.


Universally recognized as one of the most gifted composers and songwriters to have ever put pen to paper, Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock. Founding Supertramp in 1969, Hodgson’s dulcet tones and beautifully crafted lyrics helped the band sell in excess of 60 million albums, transforming them into a worldwide phenomenon.


Reflecting on his tour and DVD, Roger said “I love performing these songs, which continue to resound for me as a performer and for the fans.  My songs come from a very personal place inside me and they carry my beliefs and my dreams and my philosophy of life.  I understand the deep connection that fans have with my songs that have been a part of so many peoples’ lives around the world.”

Roger Hodgson, the Voice of Supertramp, Brings Intimacy and Depth to the Stage

By Liz Tracy Wed., Feb. 29 2012 at 5:01 PM

 

 

Roger

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"My songs have always been very autobiographical." He says, "What I feel about life, love, what I see in the world. They're very personal, and that's really why they've stuck with people through the years. Maybe I've been able to express a lot of what maybe others have not been able to find a way to express in their lives."

Roger Hodgson Interview Radio New Zealand

 

New Interview on News page and more coming soon!

 

Roger Hodgson's compelling and insightful interview with Radio New Zealand which took place on February 11, 2010. Listen to Roger, co-founder of Supertramp, talk about the timeless quality of his songs, the foundation for his lyrics, and his love for continuing to perform his classics for audiences around the world. Roger also discusses how his spiritual beliefs are intertwined into his songs and the details of why his songs he recorded with Supertramp have a dual writers credit. Although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder, Rick Davies, shared writing credit, they each actually wrote and composed separately, with each singing their own respective songs.

Roger Hodgson of Supertramp revives the success in Sao Paulo

 

Roger

 

 

Excerpt from article:

 

It was one of the best shows I have ever seen, not only for personal meaning, but by the caprice and sophistication of artistic production. Roger Hodgson and his new band faithfully reproduced all the original arrangement of the classic albums. Friendly and very caring, he received gifts, chatted with the audience and sang more than twenty classics, and some tracks from his solo work. He was treated promptly at all times when asked the public stand up in some songs. And each song was a time travel. On this trip to Brazil, he made presentations in eight cities and Campinas (SP), and always crowded venues.

THANK YOU ROGER HODGSON


ON BEHALF OF "YO CONCIERTOS,” THANKS, MAESTRO, FOR GIVING US A CONCERT THAT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO FORGET


Roger

Roger Hodgson proved he still maintains that voice which brought fame songs such as “Breakfast in America,” “It´s Raining Again” and “Dreamer.”


Roger Hodgson, the legendary leader of Supertramp, on Tuesday night, 10th April, at the Agora of the House of Culture was not only a singer but also a storyteller.  Dressed in a vest, a white shirt and black pants, the English artist came into the stage which was decorated with four miniature ficus trees and a light angle shot that was reflected in them giving them a surreal green.


“Take the Long Way Home” was the opening song that go on with fifteen more, that Hodgson performed by playing the keyboard, guitar and piano, instruments he changed repeatedly.  “Breakfast in America,” “School,” “Give a Little Bit,” “The Logical Song” and “Dreamer” were undoubtedly the most applauded songs.


With no choreographed proposals or exalted movements , "Mr. Supertramp" got about three thousand people of all ages chanting, whistling, shouting, and even kissing due to emotion.


At 23:10, Hodgson closed the show. However, by popular demand, he returned to the stage to please the euphoric masses with more hits, including “It’s Raining Again” and a farewell of  “God Bless, I hope to see you soon.”


 “olé, olé, olé, olé… ¡Roger, Roger!.

The Voice Of Supertramp Still Has The Magic At 62 [VIDEO]

By: Barbara LaRue


rh
(Photo by Sascha Baumann/Getty Images)


Roger Hodgson just marked another birthday this week, born March 21, 1950, in Portsmouth, England.
Hodgson is the legendary writer of classic hits like “Dreamer”, “Give A Little Bit”, “Take The Long Way Home”, “The Logical Song”, and more.


The former co-frontman and founding member, of progressive rock band Supertramp, Roger left the band in 1983 to pursue a simple, spiritual lifestyle in nature with his family, but he never stopped creating music.
“Logically” billed as “The Legendary Voice of Supertramp”, Roger is touring South America next month.  He then hits Europe in June and finally makes his way to our neck of the woods on August 18th, where he’ll perform at The Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City.


At his official website, one description of the impact of Roger’s musical gift was described as his “trademark way of setting beautiful, introspective lyrics to upbeat melodies resonated and found its way into the hearts and minds of people from cultures around the world.”


To this day the Ivor Novello awarded “Logical Song” is actually one of the most quoted lyrics in schools, where clearly no one understands what he’s saying.


Want proof of his enduring magic?  Here he is performing the title track from “Even In The Quietest Moments”:Click here to watch video
