Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, is currently on tour celebrating Breakfast in America’s 40th Anniversary. The singer/songwriter will make an appearance on the Start.ca Performance Stage at Budweiser Gardens in London on Nov. 24 and at The Meridian Centre in St. Catharines on Nov. 25.
While many may not recognize the name Roger Hodgson, everyone recognizes his signature voice – one of the most distinctive voices in rock history. The classic hit songs that he wrote and sang, often referred to as “Supertramp” songs, are actually Roger Hodgson songs.
Hodgson wrote, sang, and arranged most of the enduring rock standards that made Supertramp a worldwide phenomenon. His timeless classics such as “Give a Little Bit,” “The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “Breakfast in America,” “School,” “Fool’s Overture,” and “It’s Raining Again,” helped the band sell well over 60 million albums.
Breakfast in America, released on March 29 1979, had phenomenal global success. It hit #1 in almost every country and stayed at the top of the charts for over a year. It was Supertramp’s biggest selling album with over 25 million copies sold worldwide, of which over one million copies were sold in Canada.
In 2020, Hodgson continues to perform all these hits that he first recorded with Supertramp along with his other classics – “Sister Moonshine,” “Child of Vision,” “Hide in Your Shell,” “Even in the Quietest Moments,” and fan favorites from his solo albums – “Had a Dream,” “Only Because of You,” “Lovers in the Wind,” “In Jeopardy,” and “Along Came Mary.” Accompanied by a stunning four-piece band, Hodgson’s “Breakfast in America 40th Anniversary Tour” will bring him to many countries around the world.
