Review: Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson Gives Far More than a Little Bit
Lonn M. Friend, In The Loop Magazine, December 11, 2016
"The set concludes with 1984’s arousing, “Had a Dream,” and the ubiquitous, heart-anthem, “Give a Little Bit,” where I spontaneously grab a perfect stranger in the rear lobby and start dancing. “Don’t you need, don’t you need, don’t you need to feel at home?” The answer is yes, and thanks to Roger Hodgson and the outstanding fans of St. Charles, I do."

Review: Roger Hodgson's Desert Spiritual
Doug Harr, Diego Spade Productions, December 7, 2016
"Roger Hodgson performed at the Spotlight 29 Indian Casino in Coachella last Saturday night, December 3, 2016 to an audience of adoring fans. It was a heart rendering, spiritual journey through a bit of Hodgson’s fine solo work, topping a generous helping of the songs he wrote for the band Supertramp."

Interview: Roger Hodgson of Supertramp looks back on 'Breakfast in America'
Ed Masley, The Arizona Republic, November 29, 2016
"It’s amazing to see people who have had a connection with a lot of these songs for so many years and they feel them even stronger now. So to look out in the audience and see people crying and hugging each other and smiling, it’s so rewarding for me to be able to give that to people."

Roger Hodgson brings out many great memories and emotions
Doug Kretchmer, Community News Commons, November 22, 2016
"The concert at Club Regent was indeed a magical one. It was obvious that the audience was quite thrilled and enjoying the show, but looking at all the smiling faces on stage, it was quite apparent that the musicians were also having a great time as well."

Review: Hodgson's still got it
J.P. Squire, The Kelowna Daily Courier, November 21, 2016
"Delivered, as promised. Roger Hodgson promised “a very, very special show, an incredible show, a very intimate show, a very well-rounded set,” when we chatted last week. His two-hour-plus performance at Prospera Place on Sunday was all of that and more."

Music legend Roger Hodgson gives fans at Prospera Place a show to remember
Savannah Bagshaw, KelownaNow, November 20, 2016
"Hodgson’s band was on point with furious saxophone playing, funky bass riffs and the man himself sounded pitch perfect as he showcased that he more than dabbles at tickling the ivories. You couldn’t help but have your jaw hang open in awe at the miraculous musicianship."

Interview: Supertramp star hits his musical peak
J.P. Squire, The Kelowna Daily Courier, November 14, 2016
“The lyrics for some of these songs that I wrote back many years ago are still very relevant and they ask the same questions that people have now and the same feelings. I have even more appreciation for the songs today than I did even when I wrote them.”

An Interview with Roger Hodgson
Phil Simon, Huffington Post, November 3, 2016
"Roger Hodgson has been at it for a long time. The ex-Supertramp member and über-talented multi-instrumentalist has been touring North America to the delight of fans everywhere."

Interview: Roger Hodgson Rekindles His Canadian Love Affair with November Tour
Jim Barber, Music Life Magazine, November 2, 2016
"It’s amazing for me as a performer, someone who wants to give people a rich experience, to look out and see people crying or see people hugging each other, or their eyes looking skyward as they go back and remember the song from a particular point in their life. I think it’s an amazing gift to be able to give to people and I really don’t take it lightly. I am very grateful for it.”

LIVE: Roger Hodgson at Royal Albert Hall
Simon Reed, Rock Shot Magazine, May 2, 2016
"This is Supertramp as it’s supposed to be heard and if anything his voice sounds better now than it ever has; effortless, pristine, clear. .. I’ve not seen such a warm and engaging performance since…, well since the Roger Hodgson show here last time out. This place and this band are made for each other. Let’s hope we all get to see them all again sometime soon."

Roger Hodgson - The Supertramp Dreamer Returns
John Hayhurst, Subba Cultcha, April 29, 2016
"Immediately it is apparent that this isn’t going to be just another run of the mill live show, it’s so much more than that. Alternating between electric keys, a grand piano and several guitars, Hodgson effortlessly weaves the music around his audience giving an almost cathartic emotional release in some cases. His instantly recognisable voice and pulsating keys are in as fine a form as you will hear, and the genuine friendliness and personality of Hodgson, comes across in waves from stage to audience."

Roger Hodgson live in Frankfurt
Konnie Keller, HR1, February 22, 2016
"Roger Hodgson is still the man who unfolds his musical world for us and sings songs that he has written with passion. No doubt, the voice and the heart of “Supertramp" is undisputed Roger Hodgson."

Stories Behind the Songs: The Logical Song
Paul Elliott, Classic Rock Magazine, Feb 2016
"Right away, I knew what I wanted to say. The song was born out of my questions about what really mattered in life. Throughout childhood we're taught how to behave, yet we're very rarely told anything about the deeper purpose of life. We go from the innocence and wonder of childhood to the confusion of adolescence, and that often ends up in disillusionment in adulthood. And many of us spend our lives trying to get back to that innocence."

On tour with... Roger Hodgson
Headliner Magazine, Jan/Feb 2016
"Former Supertramp frontman, Roger Hodgson, has been responsible for some of the catchiest, most uplifting numbers we can think of: Dreamer, Give a Little Bit, Breakfast in America. The list is long."

Yves Leclerc, Le Journal de Québec, December 9, 2015
"Roger Hodgson and his four musicians revives the best years of Supertramp in a Louis-Fréchette venue filled to capacity. Timeless songs, a unique tone of voice, emotions and chills. Roger Hodgson has transported his audience in the best years of Supertramp Wednesday at the Grand Théâtre de Québec."

Roger Hodgson: Quebec City Concert Review
Nicolas Houle, Le Soleil, December 9, 2015
"Hodgson had not even played a note before he had received a standing ovation. Suddenly, the leader put the crowd in the palm of his hand and kept them there until the end of the concert."

UDiscoverMusic, October 8, 2015
With a new tour announced, Roger’s happy to be serving on stage again. “I’m truly enjoying this second phase of my life of being on stage and after all I’ve been through I feel I’m more whole and a little wiser and have more to give to life." ~ Roger Hodgson

Ex-Supertramp-Frontmann Roger Hodgson turns back time ~
BZ-Berlin, September 7, 2015

"Music is firmly linked to certain moments," Hodgson was in the beginning - made in view - rather nostalgic. He leaves a day in addition to a very recent memory of a beautiful late summer evening concert.

„Give a little bit“: Hodgson gibt in Lingen mehr
Give a little bit: Hodgson gives more in Lingen ~
NOZ.de, September 6, 2015
"The singer and songwriter is not going through the motions in Lingen. He keeps dissolving the spatial distance between himself and the audience by chatting with them, giving insight into how international hits as “Breakfast in America” (which was written within just an hour) came into being. The album of the same name belongs to the most successful records in music history. Of course, the artist also presents pieces from his solo albums, ballads as well as more rocking sounds. After two hours have passed, we have reached the end – almost. “It's raining again” and “Give a little bit” are the encores – even though, the latter was not really correct for this night. Hodgson has given a great deal in Lingen."

WirSiegen.de, September 6, 2015
"Many music fans took advantage of the opportunity on Friday night to see one of the great legends of the international music scene and one of the most successful singers and songwriters of the last decades, Mr. Supertramp, Roger Hodgson, with his band in the nearly sold Siegerlandhalle."

„Musik ist die beste Medizin!“ - Überblick Siegen Konzert
"Music is the best medicine!" Siegen Concert Review ~
Siegener Zeitung, September 4, 2015
"Last night, Roger Hodgson lined up great songs like pearls on a string. Alongside the Supertramp classics, his solo pieces were convincing, too. “Guys, we have many more songs for you!“. After “The Logical Song” Charles Roger Pomfret Hodgson almost had to calm down the concertgoers a bit. They had gotten up out of their seats at the all but sold out Siegerlandhalle. By far not all of the songs Roger Hodgson has written and sung for Supertramp had been played at that time, but the venue already was buzzing with a tremendous atmosphere.

Lust for Life Magazine, September 3, 2015, Harry Pater
"Roger Hodgson proved again tonight that he is the only true voice of Supertramp. The whole evening he is with excellent voice and at age 65 lost none of his energy."

Roger Hodgson – thrilling open air concert ~
Südkurier, August 30, 2015, Chris Herrman

"Some people may have been surprised by the fact that he played his hits right at the beginning. But the answer is easy: he has composed too many good pieces – he could not have possibly played them all for the encore. Throughout all the years the exceptional British musician and founder of the rock band Supertramp has not lost lost anything of his unmistakable tenor singing voice. It sounds better than ever. He has found the way into the hearts of the audience with his music and his fan community has become bigger here in Pfullendorf, too."

"The guitar provided my space to escape, to my dream world, to the world of music. As soon as I had the guitar, I started to write songs. My music teacher showed me three chords. That was it. With these three chords I wrote twelve songs. Buddy Holly did it the same way!"

Die Rheinpfalz, August 22, 2015, Christian Hanelt

"Inspiration comes from a very magical place. Almost like when I get out of the way. It’s when the music is taking me rather than me trying to tell the music which direction I want it to go in."

Tollwood: Roger Hodgson Supertramp Memorial Party
Abendzeitung, June 24, 2015

"The joy of his music and his excellent backing band is contagious, Hodgson's voice still amazing. A thrilling sing-along concert from a musician with thoughts on animal welfare. Cannot have a better start for Tollwood. "From now on, all your worries out the door, puts them at ease. And you dedicated to the music and the beautiful memories that are associated with it." And so it proved. Actually, you could break down all rows of chairs again after the first third of the concert, because hardly anyone was in his seat. An impressive opening concert for this year's Tollwood."

Abendzeitung, June 23, 2015

"Music is spiritual food that we give people.. It is therefore important for me to blur the line between me and the audience. We are all one. And you know what makes me particularly happy? In my concerts, whole families come and enjoy the music. I find this incredibly beautiful because I've never went to a concert with my parents."

Roger Hodgson at the Royal Circus: Magic always works! ~
Music in Belgium, February 7, 2015

"If every Roger Hodgson concert is a unique experience, it is certainly thanks to more humanity and the kindness emanating from his person. The man remained humble despite the millions of records sold. He addresses the audience as equals and has no other ambition than to share a moment of escape from the stress and hassle of everyday life. And people of all ages, which was fed to the success of Supertramp and Roger's solo career, shares with happiness and enthusiasm and that moment of intense musical communion."

Le Suricate Magazine, January 26, 2015, Julien Sterckx
"The main songwriter of Supertramp, it is true, a beautiful discography at its disposal to amaze the audience. For a set of about two hours, he makes his greatest hits (Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Dreamer) with other lesser-known or most intimate songs. And it is in that directory then that Roger Hodgson excels to move his audience."

Roger Hodgson & His Band - Cirque Royal - Brussels
Le Blog des critiques de concerts, January 25, 2015, Pierrot Destrebecq
"Roger Hodgson welcomes us tonight Cirque Royal, a place he particularly likes, especially as it is in Brussels and he loves this cosmopolitan city.  The public meanwhile love Roger Hodgson, his kindness, his humor, his full provision of a captivated audience, which explains that Cirque is packed, complete in full."

Once a Dreamer, Always a Dreamer: An Interview with Supertramp Co-Founder Roger Hodgson
Classic Rock Revisited, January 8, 2015, Jeb Wright

"The album has stood the test of time well and has not really diminished in people’s opinion of it. It really was a very, very well crafted forty-minute listening experience, and that is how I approached it. We were very blessed to work with Ken Scott, and I was like a sponge with him learning about recording and experimenting with things in the studio. It was a lot of fun to learn the ropes of recording from him."
