Roger Hodgson On Yes, Ringo And Supertramp: ‘The Time For A Reunion Has Passed’
Radio.com, Brian Ives Oct 23, 2013
"We thought it was about time we asked him about a few other issues: namely, will Supertramp ever ride again, did Yes really ask him to join and what’s it like playing in Ringo Starr‘s band."




Review: Hodgson shows depth beyond Supertramp hits at Egg show
The Daily Gazette, Brian McElhiney Oct 22, 2013
"His boyish tenor can still strafe the stratosphere, and his playing on keyboard, piano and guitar was all-superb but it was the stuff in between that was the revelation, including tracks from his three underappreciated solo albums and deep cuts from the Supertramp back catalog, all of which made the case for Hodgson’s consistency over the years."




Roger Hodgson is more than a Supertramp
Entertrainment518, Don Wilcock Oct 17, 2013
"His songs haven't left the radio waves and they're still played around the world."




Roger Hodgson: Music is the Best Medicine
Echo Vedettes, Jean-Francois Brassard
"The voice of Roger Hodgson is as unique as his talent. As much as his songs are on everyone’s lips since the seventies, as much of his name is unknown. Roger Hodgson, the soul of Supertramp gone solo since 1984…"




Roger Hodgson: Uniting generations
Good Times Magazine, Oct 08-21, 2013, Rob Shanahan
"Uniting generations at his concerts Roger Hodgson transports baby boomers back to their youth and gives younger generations a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured."




Roger Hodgson: Excellence is perennial
Cotonete Magazine, Sept 07, 2013, Daniela Azevedo
"Almost nobody is indifferent to the sound of Supertramp but it is also true that people often did not associate the name Roger Hodgson. But after tonight, Roger Hodgson will be the reference for Supertramp for the Portuguese people."




Roger Hodgson & Bobby Bazini at Festival International des Montgolfieres
Confront Magazine, Aug 20, 2013, Melodie Guay
"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."




Fireworks The Melodic Rock Magazine ~ Royal Albert Hall Review
Fireworks Magazine, Issue 59 Sept-Oct, 2013, Ray Paul
"For any difficult times in your life, you should be able to get a show like the one Roger Hodgson gave us – on prescription!"

Atlanta Live Music Examiner, August 19, 2013, Andrew Snook

"The Brit superbly surveyed his career at Pacific, from enduring hits to complex epics."




Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson On How The Beatles Inspired “Give A Little Bit”
KEarth101, August 7, 2013, Britt Bickel
"Part of the reason Supertramp’s hits have become such perennial favorites is because of the personal nature of the lyrics Roger wrote. He tells us about the inspiration about some of those classic songs including “Give A Little Bit."

"Now the tenor-wizard Roger Hodgson conjured up a good deal of the old magic in Munich, he brought the intricate pop-operas back to life in the almost sold out Tollwood-tent."

"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."

Stuttgarter Zeitung, July 7, 2013, Matthias Ring
"In a significant way, one of the night's most haunting moments is one of the quietest. It is just that song: "Even in the Quietest Moments" by and with Roger Hodgson: he himself, all alone on the twelve string guitar."

LaVanguardia.com, July 4, 2013, Joseph Massot
You can have 63 years and still adolescent dreams. "How many before you came to my concert?" Hodgson said, and the audience was filled with hands raised. Then he joked: "There I see a child, you know who I am?" - and people laughed. "Well, in the next two hours let your problems go." People had fun, whistling, clapping, danced and sang. "Oh, lady, la, la, la, la. Oh, la, la, la, la..."

Roger Hodgson rafle encore la mise
Roger Hodgson Still Gives It All ~
Ladépêche.fr, July 3, 2013, Yves Gabay
Roger Hodgson was able to measure, once again, the extraordinary bond that his miraculous songs weave with his audience, representing some nostalgic soundtrack of a lost youth.


Rochester Jazz Fest 2013: Paloma Reviews Roger Hodgson
City Newspaper, June 27, 2013, Paloma Capanna
"Hodgson was with a four-man band, and for “The Awakening,” Hodgson sang with the bass player and the winds player, and their well-blended voices offered a fresh insight into what the future may sound like."

Roger Hodgson ~ Kodak Hall at Eastman Theater
Freetime Magazine, June 26, 2013, Scott Cordaro
"Whether it’s the the melodic complexity of the songs, the harmonies he weaves with his band, the lyrics that sweep you away or his ability to still command the incredible range of his voice, beautiful was what kept coming to my mind during this performance at this Eastman Theater."

Roger Hodgson at Centre in the Square - June 23, 2013

Live in Limbo, June 25, 2013, Trent Richer
"One of the things that amazed me most was Hodgson’s command of the stage and theatre. He could stand there alone with his 12 string acoustic guitar and fill the entire venue with a large, full complete sound, which a band usually puts out, by himself. The man is personable, shows his vulnerable side, yet at the flip of a coin, he is joking and pulling pranks off on the band. He told stories about his songs then played those classic monster songs that are still lasting the test of time."


World Class Venue Hosts World Class Artist
June 23, 2013, Karol Wickert
"Roger once again awed and completely connected with his adoring audience.  As two of the four members of his group have families a short drive away from Kitchener, this concert held a lot of meaning for Roger, the band, and his adoring fans. The encore included “Two of Us“ and “Give A Little Bit“  where Aaron Macdonald’s young daughter got up on stage and played a tambourine to the joy of the singing and dancing crowd."

„Die Lieder sind alle Teile meines Herzens“
"The Songs are Pieces of My Heart" ~
Saarbrücker Zeitung, June 7, 2013, Jennifer Back
"These songs are all pieces of my heart. It's beautiful that the people are having this strong connection to these pieces of my heart. Besides, it is a nice way to bring people together. And that is what success means to me: when the audience are going home with a smile on their face and in their hearts. That's when I did a good job."

Roger Hodgson au Casino: C'est Supertramp à lui tout seul
Roger Hodgson at Casino - He is Supertramp ~
La Dépêche, June 4, 2013, Yves Gabay
"He triumphed at Casino Barrière de Toulouse in September 2010, with just one other musician at his side. The composer and singer of Supertramp returns July 2, again as a duo. Delight is guaranteed."

Il sera le 28 juillet au Tempo ! de Tournai
It will be July 28 at Tempo! Tournai ~
l'avenir.net, June 3, 2013, Pauline Volvert

"With a voice that brings us back to 1979, unchanged and flawless, humble and smiling, Roger Hodgson exchanged and shared anecdotes. Durbuy loved it and her new citizen of honor. The artist sometimes played piano, sometimes guitar, and is a rare poet and in total harmony with the crowd."


Review: Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
Low Down Magazine, May 28, Chris High
"Breakfast in America, Give a Little Bit and The Logical Song rekindled memories beautifully and by the gig’s end the entire auditorium was on its feet to salute not only one of the greatest songwriters and voices of the twentieth century, but also a band of such highly talented musicians it can only be hoped that it is sooner rather than later that they return to Liverpool and captivate us again."

Roger Hodgson ~ Review: Liverpool Philharmonic
Classic Rock Society Magazine, May 28, 2013, Steve Pilkington
"Tonight’s show reinforces the sheer volume of Roger’s back catalogue, as he performs a large number of his Supertramp contributions plus a sprinkling of his later solo works, and the most telling fact here is that, even though it is only his half of the Supertramp catalogue that he performs, there are very, very few songs which are missed. If this were a Supertramp show, the setlist would feel satisfactorily complete, which is amazing testimony to the strength of his input. Truly, if you come to one of these shows, you are seeing the Best Of Supertramp, delivered by the Voice Of Supertramp."

Fireworks Magazine ~ Roger Hodgson Interview with Steve Swift
Fireworks Magazine, Issue 57 May-Jun, 2013, Steve Swift
"Music is the one place you don’t have to compromise; you really can speak your truth. Artists should be the true voice of the people."

Roger Hodgson: Royal Albert Hall, London
Prog Magazine, May 26, 2013, Jerry Ewing
"The intimate nature is carried through the encores, with both Give a Little Bit and the buoyant It's Raining Again providing the chance for audience clap-alongs, closing the night with the personal touch only an artist as natural and honest as Hodgson can bring to such an auditorium. It was a fitting end to an often touching performance."

Il pubblico, compresa una nutrita pattuglia di italiani, abbraccia calorosamente l'ex Supertramp

Jamonline.it, May 25, 2013, Chiara Felice

"The Breakfast In America Tour arrives in the fascinating Royal Albert Hall for an evening full of good times, wrapped by the huge, warm hug from fans. Throughout the concert you feel a deep love, unconditional love, by those present for Hodgson. Roger is in great shape and the evening has confirmed once again his great talent as composer, further accentuated by the musicians who accompany him on this Breakfast In America Tour."


Für ein gutes Frühstück ist es auf dem Giller niemals zu spät
On the Giller, it’s never too late for delicious breakfast ~
DerWesten.de, May 17, 2013,
Lars-Peter Dickel

"For many listeners in the theater tent which had sold out very quickly, this concert surely was kind of a way home to the memories of their youth in the 70’s. Just as within a delicious menu, the pieces followed one after another, beautifully harmonizing with each other."   


Breakfast in America Tour - Brussels, Belgium Review
MusicZine, May 17, 2013, Gerrit Van De Vijver
"This is music in its simplicity. No frills and no gimmicks. Just an angelic voice that effortlessly scales the storm with the most widespread octaves, accompanied by pure instruments. Hodgson still has that wonderful unlimited vocal range!  The Breakfast in America Tour brings us the soundtrack of our lives."

Song-Magie im Gillerwald - Roger Hodgson bei KulturPur
Song magic in Giller forest - Roger Hodgson at KulturPur ~
Siegener Zeitung, May 16, 2013

"The audience immediately cheers once (Hodgson) opens his musical treasure box. "Give a Little Bit," "Breakfast in America," and just before intermission "The Logical Song."  That's what they want to hear, that's why they're here.  For many, it has not necessarily been the "Long Way Home" to the opening of KulturPur but still it was a trip back into their own past."

"...on this night heaven and earth rotated pretty close as Roger drew the breath of angels to deliver an ethereal performance unequalled in all my born days."

Live Review: Roger Hodgson - State Theatre, Sydney
The AU Review, Apr 5, 2013, Natalie Salvo
"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…"

Roger Hodgson Interview
Rip It Up, Apr 4, 2013, Robert Dunstan
"And they’re songs that have stood the test of time. Not only for the audience but also for me because I know that I am enjoying playing them now even more than I did when I was with Supertramp. And it’s funny because I now have a much greater appreciation for them as songs."

Breakfast in Australia
X-Press Magazine, Apr 3, 2013, Bob Gordon
“I look out and see people smiling and crying. I see couples hugging each other. I see four generations, from 50 plus people to teenagers discovering the music for the first time. For me, as a human being, let alone a musician, to have something that I’ve done to share with people that gives so much in so many different ways is what inspires me to keep touring.”

"This was a slick, professional and tight performance by Hodgson and his band. If you closed your eyes you’d have thought Supertramp were back on stage."

Roger Hodgson delights Melbourne
Mike Sweet, journalist, Mar 29, 2013

"And there’s the rub; memory and music. Most of the audience first heard these songs as twenty-somethings or younger, in seemingly simpler, more innocent days. Their response to the songs and their author – is that of a chance meeting with a long lost friend."
