Roger Hodgson and Supertramp in 20 Songs
UDiscoverMusic, October 8, 2015
With a new tour announced, Roger’s happy to be serving on stage again. “I’m truly enjoying this second phase of my life of being on stage and after all I’ve been through I feel I’m more whole and a little wiser and have more to give to life." ~ Roger Hodgson

Ex-Supertramp-Frontmann Roger Hodgson turns back time ~
BZ-Berlin, September 7, 2015
"Music is firmly linked to certain moments," Hodgson was in the beginning - made in view - rather nostalgic. He leaves a day in addition to a very recent memory of a beautiful late summer evening concert.

„Give a little bit“: Hodgson gibt in Lingen mehr
Give a little bit: Hodgson gives more in Lingen ~
NOZ.de, September 6, 2015
"The singer and songwriter is not going through the motions in Lingen. He keeps dissolving the spatial distance between himself and the audience by chatting with them, giving insight into how international hits as “Breakfast in America” (which was written within just an hour) came into being. The album of the same name belongs to the most successful records in music history. Of course, the artist also presents pieces from his solo albums, ballads as well as more rocking sounds. After two hours have passed, we have reached the end – almost. “It's raining again” and “Give a little bit” are the encores – even though, the latter was not really correct for this night. Hodgson has given a great deal in Lingen."

„Musik ist die beste Medizin!“ - Überblick Siegen Konzert
"Music is the best medicine!" Siegen Concert Review ~
Siegener Zeitung, September 4, 2015
"Last night, Roger Hodgson lined up great songs like pearls on a string. Alongside the Supertramp classics, his solo pieces were convincing, too. “Guys, we have many more songs for you!“. After “The Logical Song” Charles Roger Pomfret Hodgson almost had to calm down the concertgoers a bit. They had gotten up out of their seats at the all but sold out Siegerlandhalle. By far not all of the songs Roger Hodgson has written and sung for Supertramp had been played at that time, but the venue already was buzzing with a tremendous atmosphere.

Roger Hodgson – thrilling open air concert ~
Südkurier, August 30, 2015, Chris Herrman
"Some people may have been surprised by the fact that he played his hits right at the beginning. But the answer is easy: he has composed too many good pieces – he could not have possibly played them all for the encore. Throughout all the years the exceptional British musician and founder of the rock band Supertramp has not lost lost anything of his unmistakable tenor singing voice. It sounds better than ever. He has found the way into the hearts of the audience with his music and his fan community has become bigger here in Pfullendorf, too."

"The guitar provided my space to escape, to my dream world, to the world of music. As soon as I had the guitar, I started to write songs. My music teacher showed me three chords. That was it. With these three chords I wrote twelve songs. Buddy Holly did it the same way!"

Die Rheinpfalz, August 22, 2015, Christian Hanelt

Tollwood: Roger Hodgson Supertramp Memorial Party
Abendzeitung, June 24, 2015
"The joy of his music and his excellent backing band is contagious, Hodgson's voice still amazing. A thrilling sing-along concert from a musician with thoughts on animal welfare. Cannot have a better start for Tollwood. "From now on, all your worries out the door, puts them at ease. And you dedicated to the music and the beautiful memories that are associated with it." And so it proved. Actually, you could break down all rows of chairs again after the first third of the concert, because hardly anyone was in his seat. An impressive opening concert for this year's Tollwood."

Abendzeitung, June 23, 2015
"Music is spiritual food that we give people.. It is therefore important for me to blur the line between me and the audience. We are all one. And you know what makes me particularly happy? In my concerts, whole families come and enjoy the music. I find this incredibly beautiful because I've never went to a concert with my parents."

Roger Hodgson at the Royal Circus: Magic always works! ~

Music in Belgium, February 7, 2015
"If every Roger Hodgson concert is a unique experience, it is certainly thanks to more humanity and the kindness emanating from his person. The man remained humble despite the millions of records sold. He addresses the audience as equals and has no other ambition than to share a moment of escape from the stress and hassle of everyday life. And people of all ages, which was fed to the success of Supertramp and Roger's solo career, shares with happiness and enthusiasm and that moment of intense musical communion."

Le Suricate Magazine, January 26, 2015, Julien Sterckx
"The main songwriter of Supertramp, it is true, a beautiful discography at its disposal to amaze the audience. For a set of about two hours, he makes his greatest hits (Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Dreamer) with other lesser-known or most intimate songs. And it is in that directory then that Roger Hodgson excels to move his audience."

Once a Dreamer, Always a Dreamer: An Interview with Supertramp Co-Founder Roger Hodgson
Classic Rock Revisited, January 8, 2015, Jeb Wright
"The album has stood the test of time well and has not really diminished in people’s opinion of it. It really was a very, very well crafted forty-minute listening experience, and that is how I approached it. We were very blessed to work with Ken Scott, and I was like a sponge with him learning about recording and experimenting with things in the studio. It was a lot of fun to learn the ropes of recording from him."

Roger Hodgson Inspires at The Paramount - Huntington, NY 11-11-14
Cryptic Rock, December 26, 2014, Meghan Ritter
"Every song has a story, and Hodgson proved that in addition to being an excellent musician, he is also a capable raconteur, as he related a number of anecdotes about his songs throughout the show. His voice was flawless, and he hit every high note with apparent ease. The Paramount offered the perfect setting for this intimate show, and for many it was the first time seeing Hodgson live in nearly four decades. It was a journey into Hodgson’s music that brought the fans back to a special place."

Crime Of The Century: Chatting with Roger Hodgson
Huffington Post, December 16, 2014, Mike Ragogna
"My songs have always been very personal, very autobiographical and really reflective of what's been going on inside me. "Dreamer," I was a consummate dreamer at that point. I was a young man with many dreams and when I wrote the song "Dreamer" it exploded out of me one day as I was sat at the Wurlitzer piano for the first time alone in a room. I started playing and this song just erupted out of me. Then "Hide In Your Shell" was very autobiographical. At the time, I was feeling very alone, I had a lot of questions but I was also getting into a lot of personal growth in myself. The songs are very autobiographical."

Huntington Concert Review: Roger Hodgson

Power Popaholic, November 12, 2014, Aaron Kupferberg
"The stage was decorated with various trees and greenery – all to add atmosphere to the epic “Death and a Zoo,” where the percussion and animal noises made the stage look and feel like a rainforest. Hodgson has a very deep spirituality that comes forth when he plays, and the complex arrangements of the song add to this impression."

AXS.com, November 10, 2014, James Wood

Review: Roger Hodgson lives up to legendary billing
Niagara Frontier Publications, November 9, 2014, Sophia Smith
"At 64, one would expect this seasoned rock 'n' roller to be slowing down a bit, but not Hodgson. He has the demeanor, excitement and stamina of a performer half his age."

Roger Hodgson – 23-10-2014 – São Paulo (Espaço das Américas)
Metal Revolution, November 8, 2014, André Luiz
"Roger Hodgson is a legend. This is the word that can define Roger. The British musician is known as the former lead singer of Supertramp, but say only former singer is limited him too. Not only sang in the band, but also played guitar, piano, keyboard and bass in addition to being a composer of the great classics of the group to which he belonged from 1969 to 1983. More than a singer, Hodgson is considered the true voice of Supertramp. "

"When Roger Hodgson sings, people listen. They also stand up, clap their hands, sing along, cheer, stomp their feet and scream for more. A packed house did just that and more at the Casino Niagara Event Center last Friday night when Hodgson brought his "Breakfast in America" tour to town."

The Daily Tribune, November 6, 2014, Gary Graff
"For the true aficionados, Hodgson and his facile four band members delivered impressively accurate renditions of ambitious epics such as “Child of Vision” and the suite-like “Fool’s Overture,” The musicians, in fact, were very bit Supertramp’s equal throughout the night."

"Hodgson’s voice and playing are as strong as ever. And he’s achieving the name-recognition he shunned for years. His songs and his voice are his own, and he’s making the most of them."



Roger Hodgson brings his ‘Breakfast in America’ tour to Bethlehem
Ticket to Entertainment, October 29, 2014, Rob Nagy
“To be able to play a concert and take people on a journey, maybe to some place back in time to the first time they heard that song when they were falling in love or when they were in high school or maybe when life was a little simpler – it’s a real gift,” says Hodgson. “This is the first tour that I’m actually bringing my electric guitar out of the closet. That will add a new element for fans that have seen the show already. I’m always trying to introduce a song or two that people haven’t heard along with the favorites that people want to hear. It really makes for a very uplifting two-hour experience. It works!”

Hodgson talks about his career and what fans can expect from his Bethlehem performance in a recent interview.

"“I'm glad to be back in Hanau,” proclaimed the Englishman stemming from Portsmouth who has visited the Amphitheatre two years ago already, back then with a smaller cast and he promised his guests: “let's have a good time together”. A good time was indeed what his listeners were having tonight with this musical journey to the past which was in no way dated or antiquated but which showed in a fresh and intense way how timeless and immortal the works of Supertramp are, a band which was co-founded in 1969 by Hodgson."

"It is a night with a perfect host. Graceful, showing genuine interest in his guests, radiating fine humour – that's how Roger Hodgson entertains his audience. Hodgson celebrates his music, plays the keyboards, piano and guitar. The “Voice of Supertramp” with his vital tenor, which climbs the heights effortlessly, is supported by excellent musicians."

"There's dancing, laughing, singing, cheering – just like Hodgson had wished for at the beginning of the night. No-one really processed that the announced two-hour open air event had turned into almost three hours.  Just like when you meet with a good friend, time flies. “Hope to see you again soon” Hodgson tells his fans as they happily move into the night."

Mayor (Burkhard) was particularly pleased with the performance of Supertramp frontman Roger Hodgson. "We've advanced to new dimensions here" states Burkhard regarding the artist's prominence as well as the number of tickets sold. 1750 fans have attended the "hit spectacle" according to Marcus Stier (organizer). Burkhard sums it up like this: "Despite that number, people were still able to move. That's the special thing about the festival: We don't squeeze out the utmost of the space capacity. Professional programming and intimate atmosphere - that's how it shall stay."

Allgemeine Zeitung, September 1, 2014, Carina Schmidt
"Hodgson – supported by his strong band of four - knocks out one classic after the other. It's unmistakable: Hodgson enjoys it to be on stage. The man, whose songs are about spiritual and philosophical topics appears like someone who has arrived. The 64-year-old says: “Love is the most important thing in life“ without sounding trite or kitschy. That's also why the messages of his songs have stood the test of time. A fact which the dedicated musician himself would not have believed back when he wrote songs like “Breakfast in America“ which he has written 40 years ago, within an hour in a hotel. Today this is the title of his world tour."

Ribfest volunteers from Ohio give a little bit more

Positively Naperville, July 6, 2014
“If Hodgson is performing, Ribfest must be a something huge,” he said. The couple found Naperville on a map and determined it was about a five-hour drive from Dayton. They also looked further into the festival hosted by the Exchange Club of Naperville and were touched by the service club’s mission to help prevent child abuse and domestic violence. Hodgson’s signature song, “Give a Little Bit,” that he performed on stage at Ribfest Saturday night with his band of incredible musicians, certainly wraps up this story of generous American spirit, don’t you think?"

Roger Hodgson gives Chandler audience a lot
Mesa Classic Rock Music Examiner, Apr 26, 2014, Ted Hansen
"Seeing Roger Hodgson in concert gives one the warm, comfortable, feel found when reuniting with a long lost friend. Whether it’s the musings of a 19 year old Hodgson that wrote “Breakfast in America,” or the lovelorn Hodgson that composed “Give A Little Bit,” Hodgson’s lyrics have already opened up his feelings to the listener. Couple that with Hodgson’s easy going on stage demeanor and in between song insights and not only do you feel you know him, but, despite many years that may have gone by, that it was just yesterday that the two of you spoke. ..
Those fortunate people that may have tickets for the future performances of Roger Hodgson’s 2014 “Breakfast in America” Tour might ask, so how was opening night? Was it wonderful, beautiful, magical? It was bloody marvelous."

Thirty five years later, Hodgson is ready to embark on his 2014 Breakfast Around the World tour with the Chandler, Arizona stop being the opening show of the tour. With performances currently scheduled for the 2014 Breakfast Around the World tour in only three North American cities, Chandler, four sold out nights in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and at Ribfest in Naperville, Illinois, the Chandler show marks a rare opportunity for audiences to catch this unique talent."
