Roger comments on his evergreen classic, Breakfast in America: "It's consistently one of the most popular songs in the set and it just seems to ignite a wave of joy in the audience when they hear the first chords. Never could I have imagined when I wrote this song at age 19 that it would be gaining in popularity, if that is even possible, over 40 years later. It's the playful, fun, jubilant quality that people love to hear and sing along to." ~ Roger Hodgson
Roger Hodgson, formerly of Supertramp, wrote & composed Breakfast in America, including all of the arrangements, when he was in his teens & before he co-founded the band. Roger's Breakfast in America, the title track off the blockbuster album, was ruling the radio airwaves around the world in 1979.

"Breakfast in America" is one of the most successful and beloved albums in all of rock history. It went on to sell over 20 million copies and still selling today. The album hit #1 in almost every country around the world & stayed at the top of the charts in many countries for a full year. Roger's other timeless classics from the album include The Logical Song, Take the Long Way Home, Child of Vision & Lord is it Mine. Roger also gave us Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, It's Raining Again, Fool's Overture, School and more. Roger was the band's chief architect & visionary when it came to arranging and producing the albums & designing the stage shows. Although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote & composed separately with each singing their own songs: http://bit.ly/1Kfgu0W

"For over 2 hours, Roger Hodgson captivated his audience and refreshed the memory of all those who were 20-years-old in the 70s. Those fans, today in their 50's, gathered in the front of the stage to support, by singing or by brandishing bright balloons, the one who was the soul of their favorite group. The magic of Supertramp still operates, skillfully maintained by Hodgson."~Angers Mag
"Seeing Hodgson as a solo artist is every bit as entertaining as it was to see him as part of his former band, Supertramp. Fans expecting anything less than a full-scale night of hits and memories from this charismatic performer need not worry." ~Good Times Magazine
Roger's band consists of the following multi-talented musicians: Aaron Macdonald (Sax, Keys, Melodica, Backing Vocals) Bryan Head (Drums) David J. Carpenter (Bass, Backing Vocals) Kevin Adamson (Keys, Backing Vocals) Video filmed & edited by Wim Daans - London May 2013
