Roger Hodgson of Supertramp Brings Sold Out Crowd to Their Feet
NYS Music, October 10, 2017, Kathy Stockbridge
"For anyone who has listened to Roger’s music, you can tell it’s written from the heart as it touches those that hear it in a way that is personal to them. The lyrics are meaningful, melodies well thought out and it’s composed as a classical piece of music is, with thought and organization."

Thüringer Allgemeine, July 25, 2017, Reiner Schmalzl
"The music from back then has touched so many people, Hodgson told his audience, who stood densely packed between the Werra-river bank and the old harbour buildings. When the gentle artist asked with a smile, who is from Wanfried at all and seeing the raised hands, he playfully added: „twenty“. Lots of fans from the Eichsfeld, from Muehlhausen, Treffurt, Eisenach, Gotha but also from Zwickau, Berlin or Hamburg would not have wanted to miss this unique concert experience. And many a guest from the neighbouring Thuringia may have felt quite proud of having the chance to celebrate such a top-class musical event with a world-famous star at the Wanfried harbour, which was the anchor ground for Muehlhausen during the Middle Ages."

"Hodgson's musical qualities and his great songs are only a part of that which turns his performances into an impressive event. Even decades later, Hodgson, who gave his first concert at age 13, is noticeably doing this with utter enthusiasm and with every fiber of his heart."

They are fans who love the Supertramp era bookended by the albums Crime of the Century and Even in the Quietest Moments..., and these songs form the basis for what he does tonight. It makes for a celebratory atmosphere that represents the enduring joy of the live music experience. ..undoubtedly one of the best gigs of the year so far."

REVIEW: Dublin, 30.04.17, Vicar Street
Blog Nawiedzonego, May 2, 2017, Andrzej Gwoździk
"From his fingers came the magic melodies that flowed from the heart, and as I believe: touched hearts. There was a special bond between the artist and the audience. There was something genuinely mystical about it. Something that only happens when dealing with real art. Beautiful show."

Correio do Povo, March 15, 2017, Luiz Gonzaga Lopes
"All my songs are extremely personal. They say a lot about what goes on in the heart, in my soul and in people. In songs like "Dreamer", "The Logical Song", "Give a Little Bit", "Take the Long Way Home" we have the joy, the pain, the emotion of the moment. ..For me, as an artist, it is always essential to bring people closer to me on records and shows. In this tour of Brazil, I want to bring people closer and for two hours let them forget about any problems."

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.”

"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."

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."

"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.

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."
