Roger Hodgson Coming to MotorCity Casino Hotel's Sound Board, 11/6
MotorCity Casino Hotel will welcome Roger Hodgson, Legendary Singer-Songwriter formerly of SUPERTRAMP, to Sound Board on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.
Roger Hodgson has been recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters and lyricists of our time. As the legendary voice and composer of many of the band Supertramp's greatest hits, he gave us "Give a Little Bit," "The Logical Song," "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home," "Breakfast in America," "It's Raining Again," "School," "Fool's Overture" and so many others that have become the soundtrack of many lives. Roger's 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. His songs have remarkably stood the test of time and earned Roger and Supertramp an adoring worldwide following.
During the time that Roger was with the band, Supertramp became a worldwide rock phenomenon, selling well over 60 million albums to date. In 1974, the band released the album "Crime of the Century" with Roger's song "Dreamer" becoming their first hit and driving the album to the top of the charts. For the next nine years, dubbed by fans as the "Golden Years," Supertramp saw four studio albums, numerous tours, and the worldwide success of "Breakfast in America."
Following his heart, in 1983, Hodgson left Supertramp and Los Angeles after the "Famous Last Words" album and mega rock stadium tour. He moved his family away from the Los Angeles music scene to live a simpler lifestyle close to nature and be home with his children as they were growing up. His first solo album "In the Eye of the Storm" was released in 1984 and became an international hit, selling over two million copies.
In 2006, Roger released his first ever DVD from one of his live solo concerts in Canada. "Take the Long Way Home - Live in Montreal" went Platinum in just seven weeks and hit #1 in all of Canada and is now multi-Platinum and Gold in France and Germany. Featuring hits "Dreamer," "Give a Little Bit," "School," "Breakfast in America," "It's Raining Again" (to name a few), and a bonus orchestral version of "Fool's Overture," this DVD is a stunning reminder of the musical genius of Roger Hodgson.
