Roger Hodgson bringing “Breakfast In America” to America
New York, NY (January 30, 2012) – 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.
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.

Counting the days until Roger Hodgson’s shows in Temecula, CA later this month. This will be my third year seeing him and I can’t wait. Roger puts on more than a concert. He gives his audience a feel-good feeling like no other artist I have seen. Everyone is singing, laughing, dancing. His shows are amazing.
That voice of his is flawless and sounds even better than it does on my Supertramp vinyls. It was always the songs that Roger sang that I loved best and now I know why. Roger and the other Supertramp co-founder, Rick Davies, shared writing credit but they each actually wrote and composed separately. The contrasts between the two are so very apparent. What a poet Roger is.
Give yourself a gift and get to one of Roger’s shows. I have seen many, many artists live over the years and he is by far the best. Check out his Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/RogerHodgsonOfficial.
In an age where musicianship comes second to “showmanship”, Roger proves that there are still performers out there that believe in, and can deliver both, for real.
Roger is an artist who understands the strong connection with the faces before him and embraces his fans. From the first steps onto the stage to the last notes played, Roger and his band connect with the people and leaving you feel recharged and uplifted. For days afterwards, you find yourself humming his music, taking lighter steps and smiling when memories of his performance flow through your head.
Roger has spend the better part of the last ten years offering us his music; “Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, Logical Song, Long Way Home, Breakfast in America” and his voice……what a gift. He has remembered and given back to the sea faces before him, for many of us, we will never forget that…..

Go see one of his performance, It will stay with you……
It’s great to know that Roger is on tour again this year, because attend to one of his concerts is a pleasure, we can enjoy all that songs he wrote and form our own soundtrack. Many of us, grew up listening to his voice during the time he was involved in Supertramp.
We are very fortunate to can enjoy his shows, his unique voice and charisma. The comunication between artist and audience is special. He performs with great success, solo shows, with orchestras or with his fantastic band, bringing the spirit of Supertramp all around the world.
It’s a thrill, a blast, chills and goosebumps, all at the same time… So, nobody should miss a concert of Roger. It’s really worth!!!
