Bergen Performing Arts Center ~
Englewood, NJ ~ October 25, 2013
First and foremost I'd like to thank you for playing my request "Two of Us" in Englewood Friday night for my dear friend Katarina. It was my great pleasure to introduce her to your songwriting, We had a wonderful evening of live music and shared friendship that I will forever hold in my heart and memory. Your band is amazing, truly gifted musicians. I am blessed to have your music as part of my soul, please know that my " Love Travels " safe journey for you and the band as you continue your tour. Sincerely yours, ~Ray
Thank you Roger for dedicating 'Hide In Your Shell' to my son, Kyle during the Englewood, NJ concert on Friday, Oct 25th. That song has helped him to cope, adapt, and prevail through his formative teen and young adult years. This song and your many others did the same for me throughout my life. I don't know how to begin to tell you or show my love and respect ~ Jim Amey

Phenomenal show in Englewood NJ Friday night. Meeting you was one of the highlights of my life Roger. God Bless you ~ Craig Nicoletti
I just want to say that Roger Hodgson puts on one of the most magical shows of all-time he is to the band Supertramp what Paul McCartney and George Harrison musically were to The Beatles(Roger has elements of all the Beatles including John Lennon and Ringo Starr in style, stage presence and greatness), what else can you say - he can move an audience to tears and more importantly spiritual joy through song, he can speak to people in the audience when he's on stage like they are sitting in their/his kitchen or living room and communicates honestly better than anyone I ever seen live - I haven't even mentioned that he's one of the greatest songwriters on earth and made some of the most brilliant and some overlooked music in the history of recorded music and finally I was fortunate to meet Roger with a few other guys after his show and and he stayed and talked to each one of us and all of us together-the man is amazing - Roger is peaceful like Ghandi
of the UK through song and spirit and can rock the house down when he wants
also-Roger God Bless You and keep on with your amazing journey of life in song
and spiritual (and nature) search of all the elements of humanity that we can
all through song can emphatically heal from and perpetually learn - Roger is
second to none - Roger All The BEST - Sincerely,
~ Dan Barcan
I am new to this page, but have been a fan of supertramp for a long time. I was getting ready to graduate college when I heard Breakfast in America at a friend's house in Phoenicia, NY. I've always associated it with very fond memories of that time in my life. Fast forward to present day: I knew about your concert at Bergen PAC on 10/25/13, but when the day came I was unsure about going. I had a very exhausting week at work and home, and was thinking about staying in. At the last minute I decided to see you. I had seen other bands that were around when I was younger, and I found that a lot of them sound really whipped and finished. So, considering that I haven't heard you sing in a long time, I tried not to get my hopes up.
WHAT WAS I THINKING????!!!!
Roger, when I heard you sing Long Way Home, I was amazed. That beautiful tenor has softened slightly to what I feel has enhanced your voice even more. I sat straight up in my seat and was just remembering when I first heard you all those
years ago, and all
the great memories I associate with your songs. I could not get over how friendly you were with the audience. It felt like you were playing right in my living room, and here
I was up in the balcony taking it all in and treasuring it. It was a great show. Whenever I think about it, I just feel exhilarated.
Thank you for all the joy you bring with your music. I look forward to seeing you again in the NYC area soon. Good luck with the rest of the tour and be well! ~norma
