Fallsview Resort - April 23, 2010 - by Kathy Jones 



The power of music never ceases to amaze me.

Randy and I once again had the privilege of seeing Roger and Aaron in Canada last night and tonight. As I write this, I'm still experiencing that natural high that comes with seeing Roger perform. Roger is one of the few artists who can make you FEEL where the music is coming from. He doesn't just go through a routine when he takes the stage, whether it's the first show of the tour or the fifty-first. I'm not alone in my perception. I saw the smiling faces, heard the singing (the whistling!). The second night, we sat next to a couple of guys who drove all the way from Indiana. They had never seen Roger solo. Afterwards, one of them said it was the best show he had ever seen in his life, and he had seen literally hundreds, including Supertramp in ...

Fallsview Casino and Resort, Niagara Falls, Canada - April 22 ~ by Linda Gianotti 



Fallsview Casino and Resort, Niagara Falls, Canada – April 22, 2010


What a night that was had by all.  Once again, Roger put on a spectacular show.  The sold out crowd warmly greeted Roger from the moment he walked out on stage and the marvelous evening began.   Timeless classics such as Take the Long Way Home, The Logical Song, Breakfast in America, Dreamer, and Give a Little Bit had everyone clapping and dancing in their seats.   Fool’s Overture had everyone spellbound.    Roger also performed a beautiful unrecorded song, The Awakening and treated the audience to an elegant rendition of the rarely performed Puppet Dance.  


The concert went by so very quickly.  Too many hits, not enough time.  Several people said they could have listened to Roger for hours more.   With each song being performed with the precision of a master, it is very easy to understand why ...

Pechanga Resort Casino 03-27-10 by Cindy Lee 



This was my first, and hopefully not last, Roger Hodgson concert. Due to circumstances beyond my control I had to miss Roger the last few times he was in my area, so I was determined not to miss him again if he ever came back. What a dream-come-true surprise it was to find out he would be here on March 27, 2010! I was most definitely there that night!
 
Roger and Aaron’s first concert of 2010 was at the Pechanga Resort/Casino, an Indian (Native American) Casino in Southern California. It was a nice enough place except that, even though California is a no public smoking state, smoking is allowed in casinos. I inadvertently ended up parking on the wrong side of the building and had to walk through the smoke. That was not a good way to start the night. But the casino staff was very friendly and the Showroom itself ...

Wellington, New Zealand, April 13, 2010 



Concert at Wellington Town HallWellington, New Zealand, April 14 2010

Holy Mackerel! What a Fun Show! I gotta say I honestly didn't know what to expect from New Zealanders, but man you folks are great! We all blew in pretty late last night, and hit the hay pretty hard. Got up this morning and whizzed over to the venue without any time to really check anything out. Soundchecked, ironed my shirt, (yes I am a capable domesticated husband), and munched on veggie sticks before the show. Then coming out on to the stage, I knew it was going to be special. First of all the natural acoustics of the hall are GREAT! then of course our own "MIx Master"  Howard Heckers behind the board, brought the sound to new heights. Having him with us these past six years has been a real blessing. And to top it all off, you folks here in ...
