Roger Hodgson to Launch Concert Tour in Rancho Mirage, 10/26
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.
