Roger Hodgson, best known for co-fronting the British progressive rock act of Supertramp and writing the songs that led them to outstanding success throughout the 70s and 80ís, took the stage at Casino Rama, Friday November 12th as part of what he says is "becoming a traditionĒ.  Sure enough, he played the same venue at approximately this same time last year, and the masterpiece of that performance was evident in the overwhelming number of repeat show goers this time around.  

Though hype and listings prior to the show indicated that Hodgson would be appearing with a symphony, the description didnít nearly do justice to such an elaborate production, considering the stage housed a full orchestra and conductor, an 18-piece choir, 3 back-up singers, and Hodgsonís regular ...

Epcot, Orlando Florida ~ November 4 and 5, 2010 ~ Review by Linda Gianotti 



This was Rogerís first appearance at a Disney park and what better occasion than the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival where cultures from all over the world are brought together.   Roger performed three sets each evening and every minute was sensational.    Even rain on Thursday did not stop the crowds from filling the open air theatre for each of the three shows.  Fridayís sunshine brought standing room only crowds to each performance.

 

As soon as Roger walked out onto the stage, he received a standing ovation for all six performances.   The audiences went wild with applause and seemed overjoyed at what was to come.  The huge smile on Rogerís face let us know that he was happy with the warmth and love being sent his way.       

 

The sets were limited in time, but to the delight of his fans, Roger used each ...
