Paris, France ~ October 5, 2012 ~ Reflection by Marie Coyne 

"Bloom where you are planted”


Olympia, Paris - 5th October 2012


While we were taking a bus tour of Paris, I noticed a sign: "Bloom where you are planted”  I didn’t see what it referred to… but I saw it in action tonight at the Olympia in Paris.


Roger Hodgson blooms wherever he is planted. I have been very lucky to have seen Roger in concert in several countries now, but Paris was an extraordinary experience. The people of Paris have long taken Roger to their hearts and to observe it, and even better, be part of this experience was overwhelming. The breadth and warmth of the love of the French fans is apparent from the moment Roger’s outline is seen emerging from the side of the stage. Olympia erupted; the fans were on their feet to welcome the minstrel for so long, I thought the concert would never start!


Most of the people ...

Hanau, Germany ~ September 13, 2012 ~ Reflection by Simon 



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. Actually, the concert was due to begin at half past seven but unfortunately there was a delay of half an hour. 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 ...
