Backstage Pass from Adelaide, Au 

php/DSC01146 Adelaide copy copy.jpg

What a show and such a fantastic audience!  We received a very warm welcome from the people of Adelaide.   We thought we'd share with you some of the comments for this show that have been posted on Roger's Guestbook on his site -   Feel free to leave a message for Roger on his Guestbook.  

"Saw you perform last night in Adelaide and Wow!!!!!  As a huge Supertramp fan you bought the memories flooding back of my courtship days of my wife in the mid 70s. We both loved the concert last night and she wasn't even a fan. I thank you and your band of masterful minstrels for one of THE BEST concerts of my life. I bought the DVD "Take the Long Way Home" to remember this concert by, but if I ever get the chance to see you live in concert again I'll be there with ...

Backstage Pass from Sydney, AU ~ April 3, 2013 

php/DSC00861 copy Sydney 4-3-13 Tour Blog.jpg

Roger's performance in Sydney at the State Theater built in 1927 was magical.  This beautiful old theater was built in three levels with a painted domed ceiling and ornate walls and doors and red cushy seats.  Its location in the heart of downtown in the fashionable shopping district was a great place to play, both for Roger and his band and for the audience as well.   It just does not get any better than this - and Roger's second show at this beautiful theatre is April 4.   

Here are a few comments that poured into Roger's Guestbook on his site before we even left the venue:

Backstage Pass from Byron Bay, AU 

Backstage Pass from Byron Bay, AU

What a night we had at Byron Bay Bluesfest on Easter Sunday! Even the rainy weather did not keep the crowds away. Luckily, the show was under cover but that still didn't keep people who couldn't fit in the tent from standing out in the weather to watch the show. The lighting and sound were perfect and the crowd was on their feet! The show ignited and everyone was clapping and singing from the first song, forward. At many moments during the concert the audience was singing so loud that many could not here Roger! During the show, a member of the festival staff mentioned that it was as if he was again seeing Supertramp in the 1970's - only this was much better. Another said that they had been to all the shows so far at the festival and that Roger's was by far the ...

Backstage Pass from Brisbane, AU 

php/2013-03-30 copy.jpeg

The theatre in Brisbane tonight was a standing bar type venue with a balcony overlooking the audience and stage.  The vibe was high from the beginning.  The crowd was already cheering before Roger came out on stage and they proceeded to sing along from the very first song and kept singing all night long.


Roger opened his second set with Child of Vision and it was definitely one of the highlights of the evening.  When the song ended, everyone erupted into their local soccer chant – "ollie ollie, oi oi oi” and later chanted "Roger, Roger, Roger "– the audience definitely found their voice tonight.


It is really cool playing in different flavors of venues all over the world.  I personally loved the energy of this standing venue.  People really enjoyed dancing and moving during the concert.  Tomorrow Roger and his band will be performing at the Bluesfest in Byron Bay – one of the most ...

Roger Hodgson delights Melbourne

Australian tour opener finds Supertramp co-founder in fine voice and with a band to match

Review by Mike Sweet

The elegant Palais Theatre in Melbourne’s St Kilda district sits next to Luna Park, the city’s iconic funfair – and if the tunnel of love was doing good business next door, another opened in the art deco theatre last night – as nearly 2000 fans welcomed Roger Hodgson back to Australia.

Two years after his last visit Hodgson is back, accompanied not just by the amazing multiskilled instrumentalist Aaron Macdonald, but band members Bryan Head (drums), Kevin Adamson (keyboards) and David J Carpenter (bass).

And this tight-knit combo delivers in spades. The set-opener Take the Long Way Home set the tone for the evening – a feast of Hodgson’s classic songs, most of which became anthems for a generation of Supertramp fans – ...
