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 is Classics Live, available through iTunes, Topspin or from the Roger Hodgson Store. UMe recently released a Deluxe Edition of Breakfast In America which includes a second disc, Breakfast Around The World, containing 12 previously unreleased 1979 live recordings from Miami, London and Paris.
