Roger Hodgson, Legendary Voice of Supertramp,
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 Montreal  that 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 Diego Reader

 

"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 Gazette 

 

"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.

 

Hodgson’s latest CD, Classics Live, is available through iTunes or from RogerHodgsonStore.

 

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.”

 

ROGER HODGSON – “BREAKFAST IN AMERICA” at Place des Arts’ Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Friday, October 18.

 

TICKETS: VIP package available which includes sound check access, an autographed CD, and a seat in the first seven rows.

 

Fan pre-sale is underway and will conclude on February 9 at 10:00AM EST.  Password is not required.
Pre-sale tickets are available online through http://infolettre.laplacedesarts.com/infoflash/hodgson-en/

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 www.rogerhodgson.com.

 

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.

 

A live version of “Give a Little Bit” is available on Roger's latest CD release, Classics Live - a spectacular collection of live performances from acoustic, band, and orchestra shows recorded on his 2010 world tour. Fans the world over have also been thrilled with the CD’s new versions of unforgettable hits such as “Take the Long Way Home,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Hide in Your Shell,” “Breakfast in America,” “Only Because of You," “Lord is it Mine,”  The Logical Song,”  “School,” “Dreamer,” “Two of Us,” and “It's Raining Again.” Hodgson will launch the latest leg of his ongoing Breakfast in America Tour on March 22 in Clearwater, Florida – with shows for 2013 spanning the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, and Europe.

 

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.”

 

For complete information on the Breakfast in America Tour visit the Tour page on Hodgson’s Website, or Events on Roger’s Facebook page.

 

Hailed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time, Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang Supertramp’s most globally successful and enduring anthems – timeless songs that helped the band sell well over 60 million albums to date. Audiences are once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp. For more information on Roger Hodgson, click Bio.

Roger Hodgson, Legendary Voice of Supertramp,

Announces Changes to ‘Breakfast in America’
Tour Schedule Due to Hurricane Sandy

 

Hodgson Joins Efforts to ‘Give a Little Bit’ to Red Cross

 

Roger Hodgson

 

Prompted by the damaging impact of Hurricane Sandy to the East Coast, legendary songwriter and vocalist ROGER HODGSON of the group Supertramp, announced several changes to the North American leg of his popular “Breakfast in America” tour, which resumes tomorrow, including fundraising for the Red Cross.

 

"We have been closely following the effects and recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy and our sympathy goes out to all of those whose lives have been affected.” Roger Hodgson commented. “Knowing the challenges that many people are currently facing, we are working with each promoter to reschedule shows and to find ways to 'give a little bit' to help the local communities.”   

 

Hodgson’s song, “Give a Little Bit” was used this week during ABC TV’s “Day of Giving” telethon encouraging all of us to reach out to the victims of Hurricane Sandy by giving whatever we can to the Red Cross. Click here for the lyrics.

 

A portion of proceeds from Roger Hodgson’s Nov. 8 concert at Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, NJ will be donated to the American Red Cross.

 

Tickets for all rescheduled shows will be honored on their new dates, and Hodgson will be offering a special bonus surprise at certain venues for current ticket holders!  So hold onto your tickets!


Roger Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969. His current Breakfast in America Tour celebrates his band’s top selling album, which sold over 25 million copies and was #1 worldwide. The current tour, his first US tour with a band in 30 years, features all his self-penned hit songs - “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,”  “Dreamer,” “School,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “It's Raining Again,” and “Fool's Overture” and many more…. 

 

Click below to hear Roger Hodgson’s classic “Give a Little Bit,” which he has again offered to the Red Cross in support of Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, as he did with Hurricane Katrina and the 2004 Tsunami. The song captures a humanitarian spirit which at times like these, is an inspiring reminder of the difference we can all make by ‘giving a little bit’ to support these charitable organizations in their extraordinary relief efforts.

Roger Hodgson gives (more than) a little bit on stage ~ EXCERPT

 
 
Nov 2, 2012   |  

Roger Hodgson at the keyboards.

Roger Hodgson at the keyboards.
 
Written by
Bill Nutt
For the Daily Record

 

The man who wrote and sang “Give a Little Bit” is feeling more than a little generous these days.


Roger Hodgson, whose distinctive tenor voice and introspective lyrics were signatures of the band Supertramp, has returned to performing after a hiatus of some 20 years. And, in his own words, he’s “having the time of (his) life.”


“It’s better now than it ever was,” says Hodgson. “I’m older and wiser. I feel I have more to give the audience. I don’t think I’ve ever sounded better, and I have to say that my band is the best band I’ve ever put together.”


Hodgson, who is playing two dates in New Jersey, finds himself in an odd position, however. The songs he did with Supertramp in the 1970s and early 1980s – such as “The Logical Song,” “Take the Long Way Home,” and “Dreamer” – are still staples of radio.


But Hodgson’s own name is less well known than that of Supertramp. “I’m not a known quantity to a lot of people,” he says. “People have been hearing these songs for years, but it’s taken me a while to establish my own name.”


His recording career actually dates to 1969, when he played guitar on the song “Duck Pond” by a group called People Like Us. At the time, he was fresh out of boarding school in Buckinghamshire.


Less than a year later, he was tapped to sing lead on “Mr. Boyd,” a song by a pop band called Argosy. The members of that impromptu group included the piano player Reginald Dwight, who would later change his name to Elton John.

 

“Yes, Reggie did a very nice job on that song,” says Hodgson with a laugh. More seriously, he adds, “I was totally tongue-tied. I was 19 and working with these red-hot musicians. It was an amazing baptism.”

Supertramp at Ridgefield Playhouse Benefit ~ EXCERPT

 

 

Erik Ofgang
Tuesday, October 30, 2012

 

Roger

Roger Hodgson, the voice of Supertramp,

will perform at the Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, Nov. 3.


 In the 1970s, Roger Hodgson wrote the song "Give A Little Bit," with his band Supertramp. He said the song was his ode to love and helping others.


"It was really my anthem championing love, championing caring and giving," said Hodgson, who was the lead singer, chief songwriter and pianist for Supertramp.


"It was a message that I really believed. At a certain point I realized that one of the secrets in life is giving. I realized that actually I get more joy and fulfillment from giving than I do in just taking," he said.


Hodgson will be giving Supertramp fans a chance to hear all the group's biggest hits when he performs at the Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m. The concert is a fundraising gala for the playhouse, which is a nonprofit organization. There's a pre-show cocktail party for all ticket holders from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. It includes hors d'oeuvres and an open bar.


During the 1970s, Supertramp charted such mega hits as "It's Raining Again," "Fools Overture, "Give A Little Bit, "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home" and "The Logical Song." Hodgson wrote these songs and will perform them and others with his band at this concert.


In a recent phone interview Hodgson was sincere, thoughtful and full of genuine kindness as he discussed his career and upcoming show.


Q: Can you tell me a little about your live shows? ...

For the safety of all those traveling to my concerts, we are shifting the dates for the first three shows.” 

 

Our East Coast tour will now begin in Boston (Lynn, MA) with the show on its original date, Sunday, Nov 4th.  The shows for Nov 1st in Philadelphia (Glenside, PA), Nov 2nd in Long Island (Westbury, NY), and Nov 3rd in Ridgefield, CT will be rescheduled for either another day in November or the beginning of next year.

THE LEGENDARY VOICE OF SUPERTRAMP

**BRINGING HIS FULL BAND TO AUSTRALIA FOR THE FIRST TIME**


Roger Hodgson has been recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters, and lyricists of our time. As the co-founder and legendary voice of Supertramp, he gave us the timeless classics such as “Give a little bit,” “The Logical Song,” “School,” “Dreamer,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “Breakfast In America,” “Child of Vision,” “Fool’s Overture,” and so many others that have become the soundtrack of our lives. Many people don’t realize that although Roger and Supertramp’s other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs. 

 

Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969. During the 14 years that he led the band prior do his departure, Supertramp became a worldwide phenomenon with sales of over 60 million albums. Although Roger departed the band in 1983 and moved away from the Los Angeles music scene to Northern California to raise his children and be close to nature, he is still regarded by many as Supertramp’s spiritual and creative force. 


His songs have stood the test of time and are more relevant today, if not more so, than when they were released. Hodgson recently received the honour of two awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for “Give a Little Bit” and “Breakfast in America” being in the top played songs in their repertory.

 

Hodgson is currently on his world tour and selling out shows around the globe, in addition to receiving fantastic reviews from media and fans alike. Don’t miss this one-off opportunity

Roger Hodgson's songwriting secret: 'I wrote them when I was alone' ~ EXCERPT

Roger Hodgson today and in his Supertramp days


The song titles alone bring back memories: "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home," "Give a Little Bit", "Breakfast in America," "The Logical Song." But fan testimony — particularly on the subject of lyrics — has convinced singer-songwriter Roger Hodgson, formerly of '70s rockers Supertramp, that his is no nostalgia act.


"The songs I'm playing were written 30-plus years ago, but they don't sound old," Hodgson says. "They still sound fresh. They're still very relevant — some are more relevant today than when they were written. 'Give a Little Bit,' I think, has a message that is more needed today than when I wrote it. 'Please tell me who I am' — there are a lot of confused people in world. It's a tough time to be alive right now. How do you find true happiness?


"It never ceases to amaze me, really, what different songs have meant to people. I hear everything from 'They saved my life during my teen years' to 'We fell in love to the songs.' Or they used the songs at their weddings. The thing that amazes me is the depth of connection people have with these songs."

Former Supertramp frontman takes long way to Gallo Center ~ "EXCERPT"

 

By Lisa Millegan Renner
lrenner@modbee.com


Roger Hodgson said it can be frustrating to market his shows. People don't know that he's the singer and songwriter behind such Supertramp hits as "The Logical Song," "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home" and "Give a Little Bit."


The Great Britain native is hoping that by naming his tour after "Breakfast in America," Supertramp's mega-selling 1979 album, fans will catch on. He performs Saturday at the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto as part of a 34-city U.S. tour.


"This is kind of like the best of Supertramp in a way," he said in a recent phone interview. "People are being knocked out with this show."

 

adv_p1026_G26_scenecover
Hodgson, 62, will perform with a four-piece band of players in their 30s and 40s. "I wanted young, hungry, passionate musicians," he said. "The band is a great band. I'm singing the songs better than I've sung them. The vocal harmonies are going to knock people sideways, they're so beautiful."


Supertramp was co-founded England in 1970 by Hodgson and Rick Davies. The group's first big hit came in 1974 with Hodgson's "Dreamer." The two wrote separately, but like John Lennon and Paul McCartney, they maintained a joint writing credit during their collaboration.


During the next nine years, the group released four studioalbums, achieving international success with "Breakfast in America," which sold 20 million albums. But in 1983, Hodgson decided to walk away from it all so he could live a simpler life with his family in accordance with his spiritual values.

Roger Hodgson is Bringing His Band Down Under
as Part of His World Wide Breakfast in America Tour!

 

Roger with guitar


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 !!
 

Roger returns to Australia for a highly anticipated exclusive tour of seven 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.
 

Join Roger as he and his band perform the timeless classics he wrote and composed such as The Logical Song,” Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,” Dreamer,” School,” “Take the Long Way Home,” It's Raining Again,” Child of Vision,” Even in the Quietest Moments,” Fool's Overture” as well as favorites from his solo albums such as In Jeopardy, Only Because of You,” and Lovers in the Wind.”
 

See what the press had to say when Roger last toured Australia in April 2010:
 

Roger 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 superb.” ~ 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.” ~ Undercover
 

From a fan~
 

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

Roger Hodgson, Legendary Voice of Supertramp,
Returns for ‘Breakfast in America’ this Fall

 

Roger with guitar


First Major U.S. Tour in 30 Years Hits East, West Coasts Amid Sold-Out European Dates and Critical Acclaim

 

Fresh on the heels of his current sold-out European tour and additional sold-out performances earlier this year in the U.S. and South America, legendary songwriter and vocalist Roger Hodgson, co-founder and original singer-songwriter from Supertramp, continues the U.S. leg of his popular “Breakfast in America” tour this fall amid tremendous critical acclaim.

 

The 34-date tour - which features all his hit songs including “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,”  “Dreamer,” “School,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “It's Raining Again,” and “Fool's Overture” - is his first major U.S. tour since his departure from Supertramp in 1983.

 

No longer the young shy virtuoso, he is now a charismatic and full hearted performer, his signature voice sounding better than ever.  As Rolling Stone noted following a performance earlier this year: “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 not simply to experience a sort of musical homecoming, it is also the only real way to hear some of the most beloved songs ever sung as they were meant to be sung by the man who first brought them to life.” Added the Huffington Post: “This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band.”

 

Universally hailed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our times, Roger Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang Supertramp’s globally successful and enduring anthems – timeless songs that helped his former band sell well over 60 million albums to date. His unmistakable voice also propels Supertramp fan favorites he created such as “Hide in Your Shell,” “Child of Vision,” “Even in the Quietest Moments,” “Don't Leave Me Now,” and “Lord is it Mine.”Hodgson delivers all of those songs, as well as solo compositions such as “Only Because of You,” “In Jeopardy,” “Lovers in the Wind,” and “Along Came Mary” from his five solo album releases, on his world tour.  

 

Uniting generations at his concerts, Hodgson and his four-piece band transport baby boomers back to their youth and give younger generations a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. Breakfast in America had sales of over 20 million copies and hit the #1 spot on album charts worldwide. Audiences are once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp.

 

Hodgson closes his concerts with the crowd singing along to “Give a Little Bit,” a song heard in a recent video that went viral with over six million views. Hodgson's timeless composition has a universal message that is as relevant today as when he wrote it over 40 years ago. The newest version, “Give a Little Bit with Children’s Choir,” was just released as a single on iTunes.  Hodgson’s latest CD, “Classics Live, is available through iTunes or from
www.Rogerhodgson.com

 

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,” says Hodgson, who was awarded the Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture at a sold-out Paris concert earlier this year. “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.”

Former Supertramp Frontman Brings His ‘Breakfast in America’ Band Tour to the UK

Universally acclaimed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our times, Roger Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang such globally successful and enduring anthems as Give a Little Bit, The Logical Song, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, Breakfast In America, School, Child of Vision, Even in the Quietest Moments and Fool’s Overture – timeless songs that helped his former band sell well over 60 million albums to date.

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.”

How Can Supertramp's Logical Song Help You Connect With An Illogical World?

 

Breakfast in America (song)
Breakfast in America (song) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


By Jamie Anderson, Director, Global Solution Marketing, Web Channel & eCommerce Solutions, SAP


EXCERPTS:

 

When I was young it seemed that life was so wonderful, a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical…


Let me set the scene...

 

He’s taking no chances here, he skips straight to track 2 carefully guiding the needle to find it’s groove in the empty space between tracks, then…boom…the opening sequence of this amazing track kicks in and Roger Hodgson’s voice fills the room, piercing our senses with this joyful, bittersweet lament about the passage from childhood wonder and imagining, to adult conformity and servitude. And there was us, dressed in the uniform fashion of the time, on the cusp of becoming these sterile adolescents suddenly awakened from our hypnotic existence by two of the most unlikely heroes, Clarkey and Supertramp.

 

Watch what you say or they’ll be calling you a radical…


Although written sometime before appearing on the 1979 Grammy award-winning Breakfast in America, The Logical Song itself provides a thoughtful backdrop to the world we live in today and, perhaps, has even greater relevance now than it did then, particularly for those Enterprises who are out of touch with the new digital realities and behaviors of the growing number of Illogicals ...


In the song, Roger Hodgson recalls being sent to school as a kid and effectively being conditioned to conform to a world that seemed alien to his natural perceptions, a world that scorned those who ‘thought differently’, leading him to question the very nature of his (our) existence. Although the sentiment of a command and control world remains relevant today, the biggest change since then has been the democratization of information via the internet coupled with the adoption of social and mobile technologies leading to tech-savvy and better informed consumers (and citizens). It is actually incredibly ironic that over 30 years since Hodgson first sang those lyrics that it will likely be the ability to ‘think differently’ that will save many of those companies, the custodians of Machiavelli’s status quo, who still exhibit outmoded command and control techniques over customers (and employees).


 

Please tell me who I am…


The song finishes with a kind of rambling verse that curiously contains the lyric, “I’m feeling so illogical, d-d-d-digital” which makes me wonder now whether Hodgson was predicting a digital future? Perhaps not, but the answer to the question ‘Please tell me whom I am’ is one which, for Brands, will be embedded in their ability to evolve and remain relevant to an increasingly, illogical world.

Roger Hodgson Astounds the Audience at Ravinia Festival

Roger Hodgson co-founded the band Supertramp in 1969. He is considered the “voice of Supertramp” serving as the lead singer and writer of nearly all their hits throughout their peak of popularity in the seventies and early eighties. He left Supertramp in 1983 and he has had a series of critically acclaimed and successful solo albums. His appearance at Ravinia was eagerly anticipated by all those in attendance.


When Hodgson walked on stage he was greeted with thunderous applause, a clear indication that he was beloved by the crowd. He wore a great big grin and seemed genuinely moved by warm reception. He sat behind the keyboard and dove right into one of Supertramp’s big hits, Take the Long Way Home, which the audience adored.


One of the problems I have noticed at Ravinia is the late arriving crowd. After his first song, Hodgson noticed all the latecomers streaming in and he said, “You’re late. You’re missing the best song!” He went on to say that this was his first US band tour in many years and would be doing songs from Supertramp as well as from some solo albums. He mentioned that it is “great that my music has moved so many people.” He stated that, “Hopefully, one or two songs will bring you to a special point in your lives.” In his generous set of twenty songs he more than achieved that goal.

By Kyle O'Brien, Special to The Oregonian

Roger Hodgson spent more than a dozen years fronting the popular British rock band Supertramp.

Millions of people around the world know his signature songs -- "Dreamer," "Take the Long Way Home," "Give a Little Bit" and "The Logical Song." Bands such as the Goo Goo Dolls and Gym Class Heroes have covered his tunes.

Yet in some ways, Hodgson still flies under the radar.

"Most people know my voice and know my songs, but my name is still unrecognized," he said in a recent phone interview.

Hodgson will perform at the Oregon Zoo on Friday as part of his "Breakfast in America" tour, named after Supertramp's top-selling album from 1979. He said the tour carries the name of the vintage album so that people will recognize him.

"This is what we came up with to connect the dots," he said. "We wanted people to know that 'this is the guy that sings this song.'"

Hodgson has toured sporadically since he left Supertramp in 1983 to move to the mountains of Northern California, where he wanted to live a quiet, spiritual life and raise his children.

Roger Hodgson, Legendary Voice of Supertramp, Returns with Breakfast in America Summer Tour, First Major U.S. Run in 30 Years

 

(July 19, 2012) Fresh on the heels of sold out performances earlier this year in the U.S., South America, and Europe, Roger Hodgson, co-founder and original singer-songwriter of  Supertramp, brings his Breakfast in America tour back to the United States.  Hodgson’s 34 city U.S. itinerary resumes on August 5 in Park City, Utah - marking his first major North American tour since his departure from Supertramp in 1983.    
                                                                                      

 

Many  may not know his name but would instantly recognize his voice and the classic hits he wrote and composed such as, “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,”  “Dreamer,”  “School,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “It's Raining Again,” “Fool's Overture”  - and other fan favorites including “Hide in Your Shell,” “Child of Vision,” “Don't Leave Me Now” and “Lord is it Mine.”

 

Uniting generations at his concerts, Hodgson transports baby boomers back to their youth and gives younger fans a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. Audiences are once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp, a global success that resulted in sales of over 60 million albums.

 

For his U.S. Breakfast in America tour, Hodgson will be accompanied by a four-piece band and promises an assortment of the classics he wrote and originally recorded with Supertramp, as well as select highlights such as “Only Because of You,and “Lovers in the Wind” from his five solo album releases. Roger Hodgson’s latest CD, Classics Live, is available through iTunes or from www.RogerHodgsonstore.com.  

 

Journalist and fans agree that Hodgson is at the top of his game, his voice sounding richer and better than ever as he takes the audience on an uplifting musical journey. 

 

Journalist Reviews:
"This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band." Huffington Post

 

“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

 

“To the adoring fans who rise to their feet as Hodgson and his four-piece backing band take the stage … it might as well be 1979 all over again.”  Rolling Stone

 

“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 Diego Reader

 

“It was a love fest from the get go...”  Montreal Gazette 

 

“All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan when actually I was and am a Roger Hodgson fan.  What a show!  WOW is all I can say.”  David Wild, Contributing editor, Rolling Stone

 

Audience Responses:
“Hands down the best concert I have ever seen and I’ve seen everyone. No other artist comes even close to the intimacy and magic that Roger Hodgson creates in his shows. He holds his audience in his hands and they could not be happier.”

 

“We were blown away and deeply moved by the honesty and sincerity of Roger Hodgson’s show…All of life’s problems disappeared, and we felt like teenagers again!”
   
“Last night was by far the most inspirational and heartfelt concert I have EVER attended. What a great band you have put together. I kept commenting to my wife, that song was from his heart. We both did what you wanted everyone attending to do, left the show with a smile on our face and tears in our eyes. Great to have you back!!!”

Music for Dreamers

 

Roger Hodgson plays at the Stadtpark - he plays like Supertramp did once and enthuses young and old  


by Nadine Lischick
Translated by Elke Beckett

 

We don't have many musicians nowadays who have the ability to unite generations. Roger Hodgson, former singer and composer of British band Supertramp, who performs at the Stadtpark Hamburg is one of them. The 62-year-old has just finished the opening track "Take the Long Way Home" when he discovers a little boy in the front rows. "Do you know who I am?" he jokingly asks.

 

Of course he does. Hodgson has sold more than 60 million albums with Supertramp and up to today every little child knows pieces like "It's Raining Again" or "The Logical Song". That is why this boy in the front row is not the only young visitor who came with his parents tonight.

 

There's a man onstage who is a part of music history. Through an ad in the music magazine "Melody Maker" Hodgson got to know Rick Davies in 1969. Together they founded Supertramp. Whereas Davies was responsible for the more complex songs, the big hits were all penned by Hodgson. But in 1983 they had a quarrel and Hodgson left the band. One year later he published his first studio album. Since then he has been visiting Hamburg quite a couple of times but mostly only accompanied by sax player Aaron MacDonald.

 

But tonight at the Stadtpark, it's different. Hodgson, who makes you feel like 1970 with his long grey-brown hair and his hippie waistcoat has brought a four-piece band to support him on bass, drums, keyboards and saxophone. Together those five musicians come surprisingly close to the original Supertramp sound. Of course, Hodgson himself is very much responsible for that. His great voice has not been changed by the years and has this distinctive, youthful sound up till today.  It's mostly Supertramp songs on the set for tonight, among them "School" and "Lady", but also pieces which Hodgson has not played in quite a while, for instance "C'est le bon". They are complemented by a couple of songs from Hodgson's numerous solo albums. "In Jeopardy", "Lovers in The Wind" and "Hide in Your Shell" are fitting in perfectly. Hodgson's band has brought along lots of toys and thus the pieces are nicely orchestrated, with glockenspiel and rattle, melodica and recorder.

 

But not only the songs are warming and pleasant but also the man himself. The Briton is probably one of the kindest musicians in this world. "It is so much fun to watch you", he says with a big grin.

 

"I love to see people who are dancing and having fun." His ex-bandmates did not appear to be so content when they played the O2 world Hamburg last year. They are mostly filling those stadiums due to Hodgson's songs. But even though tonight there's only a fraction of those crowds that Hodgson was used to be playing to together with Supertramp, he does not look as though he would prefer to be anywhere else in this very moment but at the Stadtpark Hamburg.

 

"The next song is for all you dreamers and especially for those little ones", that's what Hodgson says before playing "Dreamer" and he is once more addressing the young boy in the front row. "Are you having fun?" He does. For Hodgson is playing one song for eternity after the other during a varied and entertaining concert. Most of them are as light-hearted as "Breakfast in America", where Hodgson sings about his dream to perform in California one day, just as the Beatles did. But Hodgson has always been capable of writing profound lyrics as well. The ten-minute long, epic "Fool's Overture" which contains a quote from one of Winston Churchill's speeches, is highly political and deals with WWII.

 

And Hodgson and his band are always up for an experiment as well. During "Death and A Zoo" he hits a sampling pad and he actually acoustically transforms the Stadtpark into a zoo with his animal sounds. The song is from his solo album "Open the door" which was published in 2000. "Does anyone know the album?" asks Hodgson. "Yeeeeesssss!" yells some guy next to us. Supertramp was his first ever concert, he tells us later. In 1983, when he was 13, at the Volkspark stadium Hamburg. His parents took him along. That was "sheer happiness". And somehow he looks like he is experiencing the same today. His daughter is too small, but one day he is going to take her to a Roger Hodgson concert. Just like he was taken along back then and just like today the boy in the front row was taken along. This is something not many artists are achieving anymore these days.

Breakfast in America World Tour

 

 

South America

 

What a phenomenal tour of South America! Roger and his band performed a total of 16 shows in five countries. Audiences were fantastic! We received warm welcomes at every stop along the way. What a surprise in Buenos Aires when Roger arrived at the venue to be greeted by fans serenading him with Give a Little Bit – it brought a big smile to his face and it touched him deeply when the local Supertramp cover band strolled into his dressing room after the show in Belo Horizonte singing a tribute to him in gratitude for the legacy of music he created. We were all impacted in many ways by our month in South America and can’t wait to go back!


Read full reviews from South America journalists, including these two below, on Roger’s site.

 

“It was one of the best shows I have ever seen.”

Danielle Borges - LERIASELLIXOS

 

“’Mr. Supertramp’" got about three thousand people of all ages chanting, whistling, shouting, and even kissing due to emotion.”
Joel Romero – yoconciertos

Roger Hodgson, the Voice of Supertramp, Brings Intimacy and Depth to the Stage

By Liz Tracy Wed., Feb. 29 2012 at 5:01 PM

 

 

Roger

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"My songs have always been very autobiographical." He says, "What I feel about life, love, what I see in the world. They're very personal, and that's really why they've stuck with people through the years. Maybe I've been able to express a lot of what maybe others have not been able to find a way to express in their lives."

Roger Hodgson Interview Radio New Zealand

 

New Interview on News page and more coming soon!

 

Roger Hodgson's compelling and insightful interview with Radio New Zealand which took place on February 11, 2010. Listen to Roger, co-founder of Supertramp, talk about the timeless quality of his songs, the foundation for his lyrics, and his love for continuing to perform his classics for audiences around the world. Roger also discusses how his spiritual beliefs are intertwined into his songs and the details of why his songs he recorded with Supertramp have a dual writers credit. Although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder, Rick Davies, shared writing credit, they each actually wrote and composed separately, with each singing their own respective songs.

Roger Hodgson of Supertramp revives the success in Sao Paulo

 

Roger

 

 

Excerpt from article:

 

It was one of the best shows I have ever seen, not only for personal meaning, but by the caprice and sophistication of artistic production. Roger Hodgson and his new band faithfully reproduced all the original arrangement of the classic albums. Friendly and very caring, he received gifts, chatted with the audience and sang more than twenty classics, and some tracks from his solo work. He was treated promptly at all times when asked the public stand up in some songs. And each song was a time travel. On this trip to Brazil, he made presentations in eight cities and Campinas (SP), and always crowded venues.

THANK YOU ROGER HODGSON


ON BEHALF OF "YO CONCIERTOS,” THANKS, MAESTRO, FOR GIVING US A CONCERT THAT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO FORGET


Roger

Roger Hodgson proved he still maintains that voice which brought fame songs such as “Breakfast in America,” “It´s Raining Again” and “Dreamer.”


Roger Hodgson, the legendary leader of Supertramp, on Tuesday night, 10th April, at the Agora of the House of Culture was not only a singer but also a storyteller.  Dressed in a vest, a white shirt and black pants, the English artist came into the stage which was decorated with four miniature ficus trees and a light angle shot that was reflected in them giving them a surreal green.


“Take the Long Way Home” was the opening song that go on with fifteen more, that Hodgson performed by playing the keyboard, guitar and piano, instruments he changed repeatedly.  “Breakfast in America,” “School,” “Give a Little Bit,” “The Logical Song” and “Dreamer” were undoubtedly the most applauded songs.


With no choreographed proposals or exalted movements , "Mr. Supertramp" got about three thousand people of all ages chanting, whistling, shouting, and even kissing due to emotion.


At 23:10, Hodgson closed the show. However, by popular demand, he returned to the stage to please the euphoric masses with more hits, including “It’s Raining Again” and a farewell of  “God Bless, I hope to see you soon.”


 “olé, olé, olé, olé… ¡Roger, Roger!.

Be Involved Internationally…

 

We are working with many new promoters this year and welcome your support to make sure everyone hears about Roger Hodgson and his concerts. Let the promoters know how wonderful it is to have Roger play in your city and how much you would love to have him come back again!  Here are other ways you can support… 

  • Please continue to express what Roger's music means to you.  Describing a concert is a great way to share. When you post on a blog or put a comment on a ticket site or an article, you can give links to Roger’s website, to the fan sites, his store, or to your favorite Roger videos on YouTube.
  • While watching videos of Roger on YouTube, you can “like” and rate them plus leave a comment.
  • Ask the DJ’s at your local radio station to tell the public when they play The Logical Song, Breakfast in America, Give a Little Bit, and all the other hit songs Roger wrote, that they are hearing the voice of Roger Hodgson!
  • There is still much of the world that does not know the name Roger Hodgson, and you can help to change this. For example, if you see a video of Roger performing Dreamer and it's labeled "Supertramp," you can write in and say "This is Roger Hodgson- he wrote and composed this song, go to his website if you want to learn more about him."   And post his website.  

Thanks for your support in spreading the word worldwide.

The Voice Of Supertramp Still Has The Magic At 62 [VIDEO]

By: Barbara LaRue

Roger Hodgson just marked another birthday this week, born March 21, 1950, in Portsmouth, England.
Hodgson is the legendary writer of classic hits like “Dreamer”, “Give A Little Bit”, “Take The Long Way Home”, “The Logical Song”, and more.


The former co-frontman and founding member, of progressive rock band Supertramp, Roger left the band in 1983 to pursue a simple, spiritual lifestyle in nature with his family, but he never stopped creating music.
“Logically” billed as “The Legendary Voice of Supertramp”, Roger is touring South America next month.  He then hits Europe in June and finally makes his way to our neck of the woods on August 18th, where he’ll perform at The Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City.


At his official website, one description of the impact of Roger’s musical gift was described as his “trademark way of setting beautiful, introspective lyrics to upbeat melodies resonated and found its way into the hearts and minds of people from cultures around the world.”


To this day the Ivor Novello awarded “Logical Song” is actually one of the most quoted lyrics in schools, where clearly no one understands what he’s saying.


Want proof of his enduring magic?  Here he is performing the title track from “Even In The Quietest Moments”:Click here to watch video

Roger Hodgson from Supertramp takes you on a magical musical journey with his Breakfast in America Tour & DVD

January 30th, 2012  

 

ROGER HODGSON
 
LEGENDARY 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,”

The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” and “School.” Hodgson and his band will perform these timeless songs, as they take you on a magical musical journey.

 

roger

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

from Eagle Rock Entertainment.  Click to view songs from the DVD: “Take the Long Way Home,” “Breakfast in America” and “Give a Little Bit.”


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.”


Roger Hodgson will perform at the following venues:
February 24 and 25 Temecula, California, Pechanga Resort Casino
February 26 Chandler, AZ, Wild Horse Pass Casino
February 28 Tulsa, OK, Hard Rock Casino – The Joint
March 2 Hinckley, MN, Grand Casino Hinckley
March 3 and 4 Milwaukee, WI, Potawatomi Casino / Northern Lights Theater

Fan Reviews

 

“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.”

~ Alan

 

“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

Here’s a glimpse of what you will find on the channel – Roger performing

“The Logical Song” with his band. Enjoy!

 

"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

Here’s what fans said last year after
Roger’s concerts at Pechanga!

 

“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 could have 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.

Old Grey Whistle Test 40


BOB HARRIS INTERVIEWS ROGER

 

Episode 4 SYNOPSIS


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.
