"You made me relive so many fond memories of my teens years by listening to your songs. You exceeded my expectations. You are truly a legend and I must say I was profoundly touched by your humility and gentle personality. The orchestra was magical, thank you, merci, for such a memorable evening.
Your music will forever be eternal."
"This performance was jaw dropping. It was like turning the clock back 25 years. Roger's voice was as it was in Supertramp's heyday. The arrangements were superb, as was the orchestra and choir. On more than one occasion, the hair literally stood up on my arms and neck, especially during "School".
If you are a fan of Supertramp, do not miss this tour."
"Just wanted to thank Roger and his crew of musicians for such a great show. It was the best concert I have ever been to and my husband says the same. Thank you coming back after so long and putting on such a high quality, energetic and uplifting experience. You make the world a better place not just with your music but with your dialogue and communications with your audience. You inspire us to return to music and use it as a tool to enhance and enjoy and reflect on our lives."

I just came home from your concert in Belo Horizonte, and I've always been a fan of yours, throughout my 25 years. I was there two years ago, when you first came, and today, again, I was simply mesmerized. I wish more musicians were as complete as you are, playing such great music, with such great voice and harmony, and lyrics beyond comparison with anything ever made. Your songs truly touched our hearts and souls, as does your kindness on stage, always smiling, always so tender. It is wonderful for me, even though I wasn't even alive at the Supertramp years, to be able to be in touch with your music, and to have the enormous pleasure of seeing you on stage twice in a lifetime.

Roger Hodgson, Legendary Voice of
Returns to Montreal October 18 with the Continuation of His Highly Successful ‘Breakfast in America’ Tour
Montreal has always been a city close to Roger’s heart, as
evidenced in his DVD Take
the Long Way Home – Live in Montrealthat was
recorded at Place des Arts in 2006. Montrealers have
embraced Roger as one of their most beloved artists, filling
the venue time and time again since the filming of his only
DVD to date.
"Frequently entertaining the audience with stories about
the origins of his songs, Hodgson connects deeply with the
fans in a way few stars of his stature do."San
"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
"It was a love fest from the get go..."Montreal
"All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan when
actually I was and am a Roger Hodgson fan." David
Wild, Contributing Editor, Rolling Stone
Universally hailed as one of the most gifted composers and
lyricists of our time, Roger Hodgson helped define a
generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang
Supertramp’s globally successful and enduring anthems –
timeless songs that helped the band sell well over 60
million albums to date. His unmistakable voice also propels
Supertramp fan favorites that he created such as “Hide
in Your Shell,” “Child
of Vision,” "Don't
Leave Me Now,” and “Lord
is it Mine.”In concert, Hodgson also delivers
select songs such as “In
Jeopardy” and “Lovers
in the Wind” from his five solo album releases.
In May 2012, Roger Hodgson was honored by the French
Minister of Culture with a Knight of the Order of Arts and
Letters. This decoration, one of the most prestigious
in all of France, was established in 1957 to recognize
significant contributions to the arts.
Uniting generations at his concerts, Hodgson transports baby
boomers back to their youth and gives younger generations a
taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. Audiences are
once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Hodgson
created with Supertramp. Hodgson reflected, “I love
performing these songs which continue to resound for me as a
performer and for the fans. My songs come from a very
personal place inside me and they carry my beliefs and my
dreams and my philosophy of life. I understand the
deep connection that fans have with my songs that have been
a part of so many peoples’ lives around the world.”

Supertramp's Roger Hodgson “Gives
A Little Bit”
at Super Bowl Before Kicking Off 2013 World Tour
New Version of Classic Roger Hodgson Song
Provides Soundtrack for Coca-Cola Ad
NEW ORLEANS, LA, February 5, 2013—In the wake of Super Bowl XLVII, some will remember which commercials were the best as much as the game itself. With this year’s ads prompting emotions ranging from laughter to tears, prime among them was a 30-second spot for Coca-Cola utilizing the song “Give a Little Bit” as its soundtrack – a song written and composed by Roger Hodgson and originally released in 1977 by Supertramp, the iconic rock band he co-founded. This new recording is Hodgson's latest version of his classic hit, which is now available on
iTunes. His latest release
Classics Live can be found on iTunes as well, or at
The Coca-Cola “Security Cameras” Super Bowl ad, which combined the sounds of “Give a Little Bit” with images of people engaging in acts of generosity and goodwill as captured by security cameras around the world, was the most watched post-game commercial on the NFL’s own website, with views exceeding a quarter-million. The spot prompted Hodgson to comment, "The images in the ad go well with the meaning of my song. It's just one of those songs that has a profound yet beautiful and simple message – ‘give a little bit’ and show you care. I know it is giving to others that makes me happy. If we could all ‘give a little bit’ each day, we would make the world a better place.”
“Give a Little Bit” has been used to help raise support for many charities worldwide and remains a favorite of millions of Hodgson fans around the globe. It has become a unifying anthem that brings out the best in people whether it’s the 60,000 strong Wembley Stadium audience that rose to its feet to sing along with Hodgson at the Princess Diana tribute concert in 2007, or any of his other concerts that he gives around the world today – the song reminds us of the better part of ourselves and inspires us to express it.
Rolling Stone noted: “Remarkably, the humble musical legend is back and his signature voice sounds stronger than ever… to see and hear Roger Hodgson in concert today is simply to experience a sort of musical homecoming.”
Added the Huffington Post: “This is the real deal: a legendary music man in brilliant form and shimmering presence.”

Roger Hodgson is Bringing His Band
as Part of His World Wide Breakfast in America Tour!
Special Announcement of March and April 2013 Tour
One of the planet’s finest
singers and songwriters played with only one other
accompanist three years ago and sold-out his tour of
Australia. This time the writer and singer of
Supertramp’s anthems brings his full band Down Under
FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME !!
returns to Australia for a highly anticipated exclusive
tour of six shows in March and April 2013! Australians
have been asking for Roger’s return, and we have been
listening! You have Roger back and this time, with his
full band! Roger says, “I am very happy to be returning
to Australia – I felt so welcomed when I was there in
2010. It was a great tour and I am really looking
forward to sharing my music with all of you again.”
Universally recognized as one of the most gifted
composers and songwriters to have ever put pen to paper,
Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock.
Founding Supertramp in 1969, Hodgson’s dulcet tones and
beautifully crafted lyrics helped his former band sell
in excess of 60 million albums, transforming them into a
worldwide phenomenon. Although he departed the band in
1983, for many he is still regarded as the spiritual and
creative force behind Supertramp.
what the press had to say when Roger last toured
Australia in April 2010:
Hodgson is one of the contemporary pop worlds great
talents and it’s well worth making the effort to see his
show, pay homage and be thoroughly entertained by a
quality individual. His performance was exemplary.
Vocally he seems actually stronger and more assured than
when he was a younger man making multi million selling
albums. His guitar playing and keyboard work was
~ Hey Hey My My
“If you were ever a fan
of Supertramp then attending a Roger Hodgson concert
these days is as good as it gets and it gets good. As
the principal songwriter of Supertramp and lead singer
of the songs he wrote, Hodgson solo sounds exactly like
Supertramp which is a good thing. The Roger Hodgson
setlist reads like a history of music.”
ROGER HODGSON is rock royalty in the truest sense. After
seeing Roger here in Australia in 2010 and listening to
his voice sing the songs that he has written is quite an
amazing experience. Rogers voice has actually improved
over the years and now playing with a full band and has
himself and other members sounding like Supertramp, more
so then what Supertramp sounds like. Attending the shows
that Roger puts together is more like a life experience
then just a simple concert, the musical experience will
stick with me forever. I implore people to try and see
Roger perform with his band, you wont be disappointed. I
am going to see Roger perform 5 shows in Australia over
9 days in 2013, and to have Roger come back here to
Australia after just 3 years simply shows the talent
that he poses, and how privileged we are to have him
back here, even after writing such hits nearly 40yrs
ago, Breakfast In America, Logical Song, Take The Long
Way Home, Dreamer, Give A Little Bit, etc etc and still
hearing them currently on radio today shows how strong
Rogers song writing skills are and the musical talent he
oozes. Rogers all round music credentials is a class
above most musicians his songs simply say it all for
him, i implore people to try and see Roger perform his
magic sound on stage, you wont ever forget it. - RICK
Peter from Bluesfest welcomes back Roger Hodgson -
The Legendary voice of Supertramp for the 2nd
time. “ This will be an absolute highlight. If you
missed Roger in 2010, don’t do it again. His songs “Give
a Little Bit” and “Lord Is It Mine” continue to give me
goose-bumps after all these years. There are just too
many hits to name them all, and Roger’s voice is just as
it was all those years ago.”
Former Supertramp Frontman Brings His ‘Breakfast in America’ Band Tour to the UK
Legendary songwriter and vocalist Roger Hodgson has announced a limited run of UK dates in May 2013, which include a return to the Royal Albert Hall in London and the Philharmonic in Liverpool. Tickets may be purchased online at
www.bookingsdirect.com or on 0844 338 0000 from 0900 on Saturday 6 October. These shows are a continuation of his 85 concert 2012 ‘Breakfast in America’ world tour with sold out performances across the US, Canada, South America and Europe.
Roger, of course, is prominent in the recently released Supertramp ‘Live In Paris ‘79’ DVD. All the songs you see Hodgson singing lead vocals on in the classic line up are his songs that you will see him performing on his UK tour – no longer the young shy virtuoso, he is now a charismatic and full hearted performer, his signature voice sounding better than ever. In 2012 he performed a sell-out show in Paris and was awarded the Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture. Rolling Stone said of a recent show, “To the adoring fans who rise to their feet... it might as well be 1979 all over again.”
Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969 and for many fans was the heart and creative force behind the band for the 14 years prior to his departure. Roger’s passion for his music and his art shines through in the magic and intimacy that is felt when he performs his songs in concert. “Success in music to me is when I look out and I see a member of the audience crying or having ecstatic joy in their heart. To me, how much I have shared my heart and been able to touch someone else in a positive way is the measure of success as an artist.” The San Diego Reader remarked on Roger, “Frequently entertaining the audience with stories about the origins of his songs, Hodgson connects deeply with the fans in a way few stars of his stature do.”

ROGER HODGSON THE LEGENDARY VOICE OF SUPERTRAMP CONTINUES BREAKFAST IN AMERICATOUR
New York, NY—(May 22, 2012) –
Roger Hodgson, the legendary voice of Supertramp, recently completed the first leg of his “Breakfast in America Tour” with sold out shows across the US and South America. On June 6, Hodgson heads to Germany to kick off a summer run through Germany, Holland, Italy, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Spain, and Switzerland, before returning to perform in North America in August.
Universally recognized as one of the most gifted composers and songwriters to have ever put pen to paper, Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock. Founding Supertramp in 1969, Hodgson’s dulcet tones and beautifully crafted lyrics helped the band sell in excess of 60 million albums, transforming them into a worldwide phenomenon.
Reflecting on his tour and DVD, Roger said "I love performing these songs, which continue to resound for me as a performer and for the fans. My songs come from a very personal place inside me and they carry my beliefs and my dreams and my philosophy of life. I understand the deep connection that fans have with my songs that have been a part of so many peoples’ lives around the world."
For a chance to experience the magic first-hand before Roger arrives in your city, tune-in to the livestream on the DW homepage.

“When everyone rushed the stage I found myself surrounded by teenagers! Teenagers!!! They, along with people my age and older were at the stage - rockin' out, dancing, and singing the words to his songs! Roger Hodgson's music spans all generations. What a great time.” ~ Jim
“Simply stunning. I couldn't believe how good this gig was. After attending hundreds of gigs over the years the magic had kinda worn off, but Saturday brought it all flooding back. Amazing and fantastic doesn't describe it.”
“I'm a regular gig goer, I try and see a "major “artist around once every month or so and as a result of this have seen Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac etc,etc - you get the picture? Although I’ve enjoyed the majority of these gigs none has come remotely close to what I experienced in Liverpool last night. Roger you had a sold out Philharmonic hall in the palm of your hand - your songs are incredible, your voice is amazing and your band are brilliant. Despite your obvious modesty you are a superstar Roger.” ~ Dave

"The Logical Song is very autobiographical. When I was young, life was very magical. I have old 8-mm movies of me as a little child and I was just a joy bubble, as most children are at that age. Then they sent me away. Well, I was sent to boarding school. 'They sent me away to teach me how to be sensible,' and that was where confusion set in, really. I was taught all these ways to be and behave and it was not all bad but it definitely set in a level of confusion to what I felt when I was much younger. So when I left school, the burning question that came down to its rawest place was 'please tell me who I am,' and that's basically what the song is about." ~ Roger Hodgson

“My boyfriend and I saw you at Pechanga in Temecula 2/26/11 -- WOW what a treat!!
Your voice, your music is truly unique. My favorite back in the day was, and I was so
hooked on, Breakfast in America, but I heard some of your other tunes and they were
absolutely beautiful. My boyfriend's favorite was Even in the Quietest Moments. We
were so glad we went. And we look forward to seeing you again.” ~ Rosie & Tom
“My son and I attended the Sat. show @Pechanga. It was fantastic. I attend dozens of
shows per year and yours was one of the finest.” ~ David B.
“I had the great pleasure of going to your opening show at Pechanga casino. I had been waiting thirty- three years to see you perform live. Your show was more than I couldhave ever hoped for. Your music has enlightened my life in so many ways. I had tears of happiness. You had touched something deep in my soul. I just want to say "Thank You" It was a night of song that I will always treasure in my heart. You give more than just a little bit!” ~ Mary H.
“Your 2/26/11 show was just wonderful and I'm still flying high from it. Many times
during the show, I was in disbelief that I was actually seeing you live and it was a
dream come true for me. I have your Live in Montreal dvd and it's fantastic but it
doesn't measure up to actually seeing you in person. My husband went to the
merchandise table before the show and brought a gift back for me: an autographed
copy of "Open the Door.” It is my new favorite cd. I LOVED your performance of "Along
Came Mary" and on the way home from the show, I was very happy when I put the cd
on and it kicks off with that song. Wow! We drove over an hour away to see your show
and I played your cd the whole way home and it comforted me through the pouring
rain. Thank you Maestro ~ please return again!” ~ Evelyn G.

CLASSICS LIVE REVIEW
by David Wild, Contributing Editor, Rolling Stone
For most of my life, I've loudly and proudly identified myself as a Supertramp fan. All
these years later, I listen with awe to the altogether stunning new Classics Live album
only to discover that I am, in fact, first and foremost, a major Roger Hodgson fan. His is
the voice that spoke to me as a young man, and speaks to me even more powerfully all these years later. An utterly inspired collection of live performances of the best-loved
songs that Roger Hodgson has written and sung to date, Classics Live reminds us in the most vivid way who brought the world such beloved rock standards as "Give A Little Bit," "Take The Long Way Home," "The Logical Song" and "Dreamer," and why these shining
songs endure as deeply personal yet somehow universal expression of longing, love and
our endless search for human connection. Hodgson's performances on Classics Live were recorded in various venues around the world -- from France to Brazil to Germany to Venezuela. Some of the performances here are acoustic, some with a small rock band;
others find Hodgson backed by an orchestra too, and yet the entire album holds together as the deeply felt song cycle of a lifetime from an artist who for too long has been too humble to lay claim to his own remarkable musical legacy. Roger Hodgson may have taken the long way home, but with Classics Live he's back and he has never sounded better.
Roger Hodgson from Supertramp takes you on a magical musical journey with his Breakfast in America Tour & DVD
January 30th, 2012
ROGER HODGSONLEGENDARY VOICE OF SUPERTRAMP BREAKFAST IN AMERICA TOUR & DVD“I love performing these songs, which continue to resound for me as a performer and for the fans. RH
By Fred Starr
New York, NY(Hollywood Today)1/30/12/—
Roger Hodgson, the legendary voice of Supertramp, will embark on
his Breakfast in America Tour next month, kicking off with two sold out shows at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, CA.
Fans the world over have been thrilled with Hodgson‘s unforgettable songs such as “Breakfast in America,”
Universally recognized as one of the most gifted composers and songwriters to have ever put pen to paper, Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock. Founding Supertramp in 1969, Hodgson’s dulcet tones and beautifully crafted lyrics helped the band sell in excess of 60 million albums, transforming them into a
worldwide phenomenon. Although he departed the band in 1983, he is still regarded as the spiritual and
creative force behind Supertramp.
For a taste of the live Hodgson experience, Take the Long Way Home – Live in Montreal, is available on DVD
To all our friends around the world, my team and I want to wish you all a love filled Christmas and a New Year filled with hope and new beginnings.
We are planning another full touring year for 2012 and hope to see many of you again coming together in musical celebration.
Feeling the love and support from all of you this past year has touched us very deeply and is part of the reason why we’re all ready to 'give a little bit' again next year.
We look forward to seeing you.
Bob Harris continues to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the classic music TV show. Each programme looks at one complete series of the original Old Grey Whistle Test and includes archive recordings alongside new interviews and recorded sessions with guests from the featured series.
Programme four covers the series that ran from September 1974 to July 1975. Roger Hodgson joins Bob in the studio to reminisce about the programme and perform an exclusive version of one of his hits with Supertramp. There is more live music from Kiki Dee, who along with guitarist Carmelo Luggeri provides a unique take on a Kate Bush classic, as well as one of her own hits from the Whistle Test years. Paul Rodgers talks about Bad Company's appearance on the show - when they were asked to turn the volume down - and there's archive interview highlights from Bob's meeting in New York with John Lennon.
