Do not miss seeing Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, in concert! Not only did he give us Breakfast in America, but also The Logical Song, Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, School, It's Raining Again, Fool's Overture, and so many more! Many people do not realize that although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs. Roger's show not only takes people down memory lane but also leaves the audience with smiles and feel-good feelings that last for days, if not weeks. Give yourself a gift and go! Experience the magic for yourself! All tour details are at http://www.facebook.com/RogerHodgsonOfficial.

I'm ecstatic about Roger's show in Morristown, thanks for sharing!! I saw him in AC this past summer and he rocked the house down! Roger and his band sound better than Supertramp ever did, to me he wasn't just the co-founder and songwriter of the band, he's also the driving creative force and genius behind many of the songs. His distinct Wurlitzer piano sound and soaring vocals hit close to the heart, spurring precious memories and bringing everyone in the audience together. He actually has a show in Englewood and Westbury (NYC area), definitely worth the drive!! If you want to see a list of dates check out: http://www.rogerhodgson.com/documents/tour.html. Every show is a one of a kind experience!

A Roger Hodson concert is an experience you'll never forget. In addition to the 2 hours of fantastic music Roger himself will make a lasting impression on anyone who attends the event. He relates to and interacts with his audience in a way that no other performer I've seen ever has. You'll leave the show with the feeling that you just sat in a good friend's living room listening to some really great music. Its a warm and comforting feeling and it will remain with you for a long time afterwards.

yeah, 1977 called, they want their terrible music back. Danny Terrio, disco duck, it all sucks.

A rather broad statement, In my opinion, while some of that generation's music did not stand the test of time, there are many examples of music that still is relevant. How about Pink Floyd, Elton John, Rolling Stones, the Who, .....) It just so happens that I , as well as many others, think that Roger's music is still as relevant and enjoyable as it ever was. By the way, if you would go to the show you'd see that there are many young people who think so too.

I have a severe soft spot for Roger Hodgson is an understatement. For he is the author of "Breakfast in America" and it's enchanting rifts. To many's delight, Roger has been touring with solo and with his band for the better part of the last ten years. His music is poetry in motion, the body of music so elegantly expresses how so many have felt growing, trying to determine who we are the people to become. As you listen to Rogers body of music he truly tries to offer answers to that very question, with the strong message of being true to yourself, following your dreams and love each other...... he shares his personal, life awakenings with us through his music and offers this amazing walk through the music with you see him live. Because of his distinctive sound, vocally, lyrically, and musically, Roger is easily recognized and quickly remembered. His music finds a place in your soul and each time you hear those familiar notes winding their way to your ears, feel comforted. You only have to listen to one song, one candidly spoken introduction, one humorous antidote to become a fan for life. His voice and music sound better than ever and he makes you feel like he is playing just for you and yes..... you will hear "Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, and Logical Song" to just name a few of his gems, live.
