Roger Hodgson, Legendary Voice of Supertramp, Returns with his Breakfast in America Summer Tour, First National U.S. Run in 30 Years
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 from Supertramp, brings his Breakfast in America tour back to the United States. Hodgson’s 34 date U.S. tour resumes on August 5 in Park City, Utah – marking his first major national U.S. 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,” and “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 generations 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. Hodgson’s latest CD, “Classics Live,” is available through iTunes, Topspin or from the Roger Hodgson Store.
Journalists 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.
“This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band. An evening with Roger Hodgson will raise your standards of concert-going.” Huffington Post
“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
“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
“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.”
“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!!!”
