Roger Hodgson, the legendary voice of the progressive rock band Supertramp, will be appearing at the Twin River Event Center on Friday, August 17, 2012. Tickets to the upcoming show go on sale Saturday, Jan. 21.


Hodgson is known for such Supertramp classics as "Dreamer", "Give a Little Bit", "The Logical Song", "Breakfast in America", "Take the Long Way Home" and "It's Raining Again".


Hodgson left the band in 1983 and released his first solo album one year later. He took a ten year break from touring after his 1987 album Hai Hai; returning in 1997 his Rites of Passage tour.


Aside from solo tours, Hodgson also played lead guitar in Ringo Starr’s All-Star band in 2001.


Recognized as having one of the best voices in classic rock, Hodgson was once approached by Yes to be their lead singer in 1990, but declined.


Hodgson often plays alone while on stage, but is occasionally accompanied by other musicians and at times a full orchestra.


Check out Hodgson at the Twin River Event Center on August 17, 2012.
