Roger Hodgson: His hits are uniting fans around the world
Der Westen, August
2015, Johannes Pusch
"You could sense how much fun Roger Hodgson had throughout the whole show. When he sat down in front of his keyboard and started to play the first sounds of “Take The Long Way Home”, he took his audience on a time travel to the 70s and 80s. “Let's all forget our problems for two hours. Have fun and celebrate life”, he called out after the opener to the almost 4000 fans at the Sauerlandpark in English. They didn't need to be told twice.
.. “His spirit is in the music”, said Jan Wise right before the music great came on stage. On Sunday, the two Hodgson fans met friends and acquaintances, whom they had met at other concerts. The group of 16 persons from Spain, France, Portugal, the USA and Germany presented the lettering “United for Roger” in the front row."

"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 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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

Huffington Post, December

"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."

"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."

"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. "

“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.
"One of the things that I like most about making music is how it has brought people together from all over the globe and how many lasting friendships have been made through a common love of my songs. It is a very special and personal connection I have with many of my fans and that the fans have with one another."

"“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."

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."

"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."

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."
