Montreal Concert on German TV - 3 SAT 



Roger's concert "Live in Montreal" will air on 3 SAT in Germany at 2:35 a.m. September 12th (Friday late night/early Saturday morning). For those who haven't had a chance to see it, below is a description and a couple of reviews.
 
Product Description
Roger Hodgson is the voice of Supertramp. Co-founding the band in 1969, he was the lead singer and writer of nearly all their hits throughout the band's heyday in the seventies and early eighties. Since leaving Supertramp in 1983 he has had
a series of critically acclaimed and successful solo albums and come through a major accident in the late eighties that threatened his entire career. This DVD, the first live release from either Roger or Supertramp, was filmed in Montreal
and catches Roger Hodgson at his very best.


Review
Normally, I'm not a fan of live albums or DVDs. However, when this singer/songwriter from one of my favorite 70s bands, Supertramp, released this DVD featuring his concert recorded in Montreal in '06, I knew it wouldn't be anything less than stellar. I wasn't disappointed!

Unlike most singers from our musical past, Roger's voice seems to have only blossomed and improved with time. He gives 150% of himself, resulting in a sweet, soaring vocal performance.

Beautifully produced, the audio and visuals are a treat for the senses.

Supertramp were huge in Canada in their heyday, and it's evident from the reactions of the crowd in Montreal that they still love the music that Roger wrote long ago. It's a feel-good concert that will leave you smiling (and in my case, cheering!).


Review

"Take the Long Way Home" is about a Hodgson 2006 concert in Montreal where he performed many of The Supertramp's songs he composed, wrote and performed in the 70's. You will see people of all ages crying and singing. The whole audience went several times into standing ovations as he sang and played as a "One Man Orchestra" either a "12 Strings Guitar", A Piano, An Electronic Keyboard or The Harmonica. This DVD is a GEM as the stage production including lights and sound as well as the quality of the Video (near HD) are excellent.


Please tell your friends and family about the broadcast. If you don't already have a copy of Rogerís Live in Montral DVD, why not gather friends and family in front of the TV, and watch the concert togerher. Create your own private concert at home with loved ones, and enjoy the show! Love, Harmonic Management.
