Supertramp's Roger Hodgson Touring This August
Fri, 01 Jun 2012 14:12:46
Roger Hodgson, the legendary voice of Supertramp, recently completed the first leg of his "Breakfast in America Tour" with sold out shows across the US and South America. He will return to the North American tour circuit in August.
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.
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."
For a taste of the live Hodgson experience, Take the Long Way Home – Live in Montreal, is available on DVD from Eagle Rock Entertainment.
