DVD REVIEWS


 

You can get your autographed Montreal DVD now at the Roger Hodgson Store


 

Normally I'm not a fan of live albums or DVDs. However, when this singer/songwriter from one of my favorite 70s bands, Supertramp, released this DVD featuring his concert recorded in Montreal in '06, I knew it wouldn't be anything less than stellar. I wasn't disappointed!

 

 

 

Unlike most singers from our musical past, Roger's voice seems to have only blossomed and improved with time. He gives 150% of himself, resulting in a sweet, soaring vocal performance.
 



 

"Beautifully produced, the audio and visuals are a treat for the senses."
 



 

"It's a feel-good concert that will leave you smiling (and in my case, cheering!)."


 


 

"The whole audience went several times into standing ovations as he sang and played as a "One Man Orchestra" either a "12 Strings Guitar", A Piano, An Electronic Keyboard or The Harmonica. This DVD is a GEM as the stage production including lights and sound as well as the quality of the Video (near HD) are excellent."





"Now that I've watched the DVD 5 times now I can say it's still as great as the first time I've watched it. If you haven't gotten around to see Roger in concert this is the next best thing. a huge Supertramp fan but a Roger Hodgson fan and was glad to see Roger tracks like "love is a thousand times" and "lovers in the wind" made it on the dvd. Roger plays a new track on it "oh brother".
 

 

 

 

“I currently have a badly broken leg, so about once a day I put in my hand-signed DVD and watch the concert from Montreal. Roger has such a positive attitude it makes me want to get up and dance! Roger Hodgson: rock on!” VK



 


It was like once again being part of this wonderful experience and heart warming concert. The DVD is great, you could actually feel how the audience felt watching Roger sing. I'm never going to forget seeing him that night and the DVD will always remind me how much of an amazing and magical evening it was .

Press Reviews




Hodgson still has that wonderful unlimited vocal range!  The Breakfast in America Tour brings us the soundtrack of our lives.  

Gerrit Van De Vijver – MusicZine





 

The artist sometimes played piano, sometimes guitar, and is a rare poet and in total harmony with the crowd.  Pauline Volvert - L'aveni





 

For two hours we’d come together and enjoyed this down-to-earth English chap. He’d put on stellar show and crammed it with hits and other precious gems from his large back catalogue. At over two hours it’s fair to say that Roger Hodgson and band had given much more than just a little bit. They’d given a lot and then some…  

Natalie Salvo – The AU Review





 

Roger Hodgson is proving that he indeed was the golden voice of Supertramp.
Scott Smith – Real Rock News





 

Beautiful. That’s the word that just keeps popping into your head when watching Roger Hodgson perform. Breathtaking might also apply.
I want more certainly would."

Ted Hansen – Mesa Classic Rock Music Examiner






"This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band. When you can catch a show, go. An evening with Roger Hodgson will raise your standards of concert-going."
Huffington Post






If you closed your eyes you’d have thought Supertramp were back on stage.

Madeleine Brown – Rhythms Magazine






"Throughout the show it was remarkable that Hodgson's voice has lost nothing since those days thirty years ago when he was lead singer for Supertramp. His voice actually has greater inflection and expressiveness these days and he used both of those to great effect throughout the evening." Andrew Snook – Atlanta Live Music Examiner






"It's a nonpareil feeling when this voice fills the room. And there's one thing you realize at once: it's not his fans who have come to him - Roger Hodgson is coming to his fans. They belong together. Everyone gives the other what he needs. The night is an entity of music."
Erika Urban, Dermusikjournalist.de






“The power of the music was indisputable with many of the audience in tears of joy at the memories and emotions the songs evoked. It was like seeing Supertramp back in their heyday.” Evening Herald


 




"There's dancing, laughing, singing, cheering – just like Hodgson had wished for at the beginning of the night. No-one really processed that the announced two-hour open air event had turned into almost three hours. Just like when you meet with a good friend, time flies."
Aachener Nachrichten






“All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan only to discover that I am, in fact, first and foremost, a Roger Hodgson fan. The second Roger Hodgson opened his voice, I said ‘that’s Supertramp.’ He is Supertramp. His is the voice that spoke to me as a young man, and speaks to me even more powerfully all these years later. What a show! WOW is all I can say.” David Wild, Contributing editor, Rolling Stone
 






"Hodgson – supported by his strong band of four - knocks out one classic after the other. It's unmistakable: Hodgson enjoys it to be on stage." Allgemeine Zeitung






"This concert turns into a time travel through more than 40 years of music history in two hours. The audience enjoyed the great performance just as much as Roger Hodgson and his band did. That could be sensed everywhere." Regioactive.de







"A good time was indeed what his listeners were having tonight with this musical journey to the past which was in no way dated or antiquated but which showed in a fresh and intense way how timeless and immortal the works are."
Hanauer Anzeiger



 



"It is a night with a perfect host. Graceful, showing genuine interest in his guests, radiating fine humour – that's how Roger Hodgson entertains his audience. Hodgson celebrates his music, plays the keyboards, piano and guitar. The “Voice of Supertramp” with his vital tenor, which climbs the heights effortlessly, is supported by excellent musicians." Mittelhessen.de






“Roger's voice is even better than it was when he was with Supertramp. My friends and I were blown away by the sheer talent Roger has. I would highly recommend anyone to go see Roger live if they can.” Daniel Knighton, Examiner

God Bless you sir-you have helped more folks than you can imagine with your heartfelt songs."

"My first album played on my car stereo when I turned 17, my first love, my wedding, my first child's birth, thank you for the gift of your music and the wonderful memories I still get when I hear it or play it. Your music is food for my ears, your music is poetry that speaks to us individually."  ~ Julieanne



“I wanted to thank you for a wonderful evening last Friday. I have always loved your writing and you vocals, but I can not describe what a memorable night that was. Seeing you is way beyond a concert, the way you interact with the audience, the way you are a truly humble and genuine person made a night I will never forget. Thank you for a truly life altering night!”



"You, Roger, were deeply becoming one with your music and the oneness was transmitted to the other band members and it leads to a superb playing together of you all. It must be an absolute uplifting experience for musicians to create music in such a way. You all surely love these moments and also when the spark flies to the audience. Thanks to you all for an wonderful evening. Stay in touch with your hearts and let the music flow. Many Greetings. "

 



"I thought I had understood the deep essence of your brilliant music before but I humbly realised, I could still discover the deeper side of it and feel the love you sing, the transcendental Love which helps and amazes so many people around the world. Can't wait to see and hear you again and re-connect with your music. Thank you for being you, an amazing talented artist and touching human being." ~ Mila



"God certainly blessed our world when he gave us Roger Hodgson." ~ Judy and Bob




“I wanted to thank you for a wonderful evening last Friday. I have always loved your writing and you vocals, but I can not describe what a memorable night that was. Seeing you is way beyond a concert, the way you interact with the audience, the way you are a truly humble and genuine person made a night I will never forget. Thank you for a truly life altering night!”



“These hours were the best of this year and I'm deeply touched by the music of this man. His songs come from his heart and they touch my barest soul.”



“What a great experience to have been there tonight. The concert was beautifully performed and mixed at the board as well. I've performed in or seen a number of shows in my life, probably over 500 at least. This one truly stands out as memorable among them.....”



“So refreshing to be among such brilliant, humble musicians who play truly for the love of music. Sharing and including the audience to create an atmosphere of a large group of friends of various ages and all walks of life getting together to celebrate the joy and sound of magic.... Oh what a wonderful journey each song takes us on..”  ~ Amy



“Attended your concert last night with 2 friends almost exactly 35 years to the day that we saw you with Supertramp. We all agreed that we have never felt more connected to a artist as we did last night. Thank you so much for sharing your stories behind some of our favorite songs. You added a deeper meaning to the music that already had so much meaning for us.”  ~ Dave



“Your performance was incredible. Your solo version of Even In The Quietest Moments literally brought tears to my eyes. The band is top notch - so incredibly talented. The harmonies spot on - the energy fantastic. Your voice has aged so beautifully - the same passion coming through with every note. I have never been to a show where the between-song banter seemed so heart felt. Calling out fans who requested songs - who does that? Roger you have done what I thought wasn't possible - after seeing you live I am even a bigger fan of yours than before.” ~ Ricky
