Supertramp Co-Founder & Singer-Songwriter Roger Hodgson Set for Fall Tour
Legendary Roger Hodgson, vocalist and original singer-songwriter from Supertramp, is heading back to North America for a series of fall dates. Hodgson is recognized as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time. 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, Fool's Overture -- songs that helped the band sell well over 60 million albums to date.
Hodgson co-founded the progressive rock band Supertramp in 1969 and was with them for 14 years. He wrote and sang most of the classic hits that brought Supertramp worldwide acclaim. Roger recently received 2 awards from 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. Roger continues to perform his classics he recorded with Supertramp and other fan favorites live on tour around the globe.
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.
In 2006, Roger Hodgson released his Take The Long Way Home DVD, which was filmed live in concert in Montreal, Quebec on June 6th of that year. Out now is Hodgson's live album, featuring his greatest Supertramp hits performed solo, with his band, and with an orchestra, called Classics Live. The 10-track collection features "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."
His upcoming dates follow an extended Europe and South American trek, and kicks off on November 4th in Wabash, Indiana and wrap over two night -- November 14th and 15th in Rama, Ontario.
Roger Hodgson next performs on August 28th in Aurich, Germany.
