Don't let the year go by without seeing Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, live in concert. I saw him in concert a few weeks ago and am still thinking about that show all these weeks later. A fantastic show and what a voice! Roger's voice sounds even better today than on my Supertramp vinyls.
Many people don't realize that although Roger and the other co-founder of Supertramp shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs. It is Roger who gave us the majority of the band's hits to include Give a Little Bit, Take the Long Way Home, Dreamer, Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, It's Raining Again, School, Fool's Overture, and so many more.
See Roger Hodgson in concert, the original singer/songwriter of your favorites. You will leave the show with feel-good feelings and a smile. Tour details are at http://www.fa cebookcom/RogerHodgsonOfficial .
The music Roger Hodgson offers is poetry in motion, so elegantly expresses how so many have felt growing, trying to determine who we are the people to become. As you listen to Rogers body of music he truly tries to offer answers to that very question, with the strong message of being true to yourself, following your dreams and love each other...... he shares his personal, life awakenings with us through his music and offers this amazing walk through the music with you see him live.
Because of his distinctive sound, vocally, lyrically, and musically, Roger is easily recognized and quickly remembered. His music finds a place in your soul and each time you hear those familiar notes winding their way to your ears, feel comforted.
Roger Hodgson has been touring for the last ten years and one of those rare artists who spends his time communicating with his audience. You only have to listen to one song, one candidly spoken introduction, one humorous antidote to become a fan for life. His voice and music sound better than ever and he makes you feel like he is playing just for you and yes..... you will hear "Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, and Logical Song" to just name a few of his gems, live.

It is a really special treat to have Roger Hodgson touring the US this summer! Not only is he the voice & true essence of Supertramp, but also the songwriter & composer of the songs we all grew up with. His distinctive voice is stronger & more vibrant than ever, in addition to his heartfelt & vivacious piano & guitar playing. Roger's top-notch 4-piece band is absolutely out of this world, complete with saxophone to help us relive & fully immerse ourselves in our much simpler yesterdays. Memories will come flooding back when he plays the opening notes to Logical Song, Dreamer, Breakfast In America, Hide In Your Shell, Give a Little Bit... I could go on & on! Not only does he play the big hits, but also many of the deeper, incredible gems.
I have traveled far & wide just to see Roger live, he is such a humble, kind & friendly soul. Between songs he speaks to you in such a relaxed way, you feel like he has been your close friend for many years. Not only is the concert magical & unforgettable, the reactions in the audience are priceless-- beaming smiles of people realizing Roger is the one responsible for the songs they love so much, everyone is dancing on their feet, the spirit of love radiating throughout the venue is unlike anything you've ever felt before.
You absolutely can't miss out on the US leg of Roger's Breakfast In America tour... we are incredibly lucky to have him here at home. One concert is all it takes and you will be dreaming of his next show. When the concert's over, where have I been, was it just a dream?:)
