Then it was time for the legendary Roger Hodgson to hit the stage and the ambiance was incredible. People were more than ready to see the Supertramp rockstar and spend the night singing along to some great music. Hodgson, along with his band, started the night off by singing a classic; “Take the Long Way Home”. I immediately found myself singing along. I have to thank my parents for helping me to learn and appreciate good music. After the first song he stopped to address the crowd and say “C’est un grand plaisir pour moi de retourner en Québec”. The crowd was surprised and charmed by his strong French. He then mentioned, in Franglais “c’est difficile de décider quelle chanson not to play”. He followed that up with another massive Supertramp hit “School”. He continued to perform hits like “Breakfast in America”, “Dreamer” and more. In all honesty I didn’t know what to expect and I ended up truly enjoying the evening. Roger Hodgson is a class act and knows exactly what to do to ensure that the crowd is having a great time. For anyone who’s a Supertramp fan, or anyone who just wants to smile, this is the artist I would recommend.
