Roger Hodgson concert 09-13-2012


Review by Simon, 9 years


After we had arrived with the car, we did not have to walk far before arriving in front of the huge entrance. When we got in, Aaron was still practising with  his instruments but soon he left the stage. We had to wait a little till soundcheck started. When Roger left the stage, all the people who had attended soundcheck took their standing room places. At half past six when doors opened, people stormed the place.

When the concert started with Take the Long Way Home, everybody was cheering really loudly. I think the concert was really great. The only thing which I did not find so great, was that my Mum was singing along loudly all of the time. Before the ...

Newport Beach and San Diego, CA ~ September 16 and 18, 2012 ~ Reflection by Peter Rimel 



What man leaves one of the world’s most popular bands at its commercial height to raise his kids for 17 years?  Such a man certainly has his priorities in order, and that man, Mr. Roger Hodgson, is the genius that was the legendary singer/songwriter/composer of the band Supertramp.  I was fortunate enough to have seen his two recent shows in Southern California at the Taste of Newport in Newport Beach, California, and at Humphreys By the Bay near San Diego, California.
 
The Breakfast in America tour is winding down for 2012.  It is Roger Hodgson’s first United States tour in 30+ years.  The Taste of Newport show was a déjà vu for me, for Roger’s last show (I still cling to the ticket stub from that show) with the famed band Supertramp was in 1983 at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, California, just miles away from the Taste of Newport ...

Hanau, Germany ~ September 13, 2012 ~ Reflection by Dieter Burkard and Doris Nell 



A fresh and warm show
Review by Dieter Burkard and Doris Nell
 
The last concert in Germany for this year was in Hanau, close to Frankfurt am Main. The old songs, Roger wrote for Supertramp and for himself, still sounded fresh and the reason for that was not the cold weather. The reason is the high quality of the songs and the brilliant musicians. 
 
But let's start from the beginning: Linda and Shakti invited my sister and me to come to the sound check a few days ago. We arrived at 5:15 PM in the open air venue in Hanau, close to the river Main. Approximately 20 people were in the amphitheater, waiting for the sound check. The setup of the stage was already completed. There was a bit time to talk with Linda and more time to talk with Howard. Aaron was cleaning his instruments with wet tissues and then Roger came on stage, waved his hand and ...
