Roger Hodgson is a British singer-songwriter and musician from Portsmouth, Hampshire.
Starting his music career in 1969 as a member of the band Supertramp, he released seven albums with the band, including ‘Breakfast in America’, which hit #3 in the UK Albums Chart and #1 in the Billboard Hot 200, as well as ‘Crime of the Century’ in 1974 and ‘...Famous Last Words…’ in 1982. He released his debut solo album, ‘In the Eye of the Storm’ in 1984, followed by ‘Hai Hai’, in 1987 and ‘Open the Door’ in 2000.
He has headlined his own shows and tours across Europe and North America, as well as having performed at Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium in 2007.
Roger Hodgson has now announced a European tour for spring 2019 (including a brace of London shows for May), following shows across Australia and New Zealand. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
Supertramp spoke to our generation like no one else - the melancholy, the hopefulness in the face of adversity, the confusion that we all shared. I had the opportunity to see Supertramp several times in the 1970s, and each show was spectacular. But to see Roger Hodgson again in recent years was even more special. The show in Munich a few years ago stands out as a highlight: the entire audience singing along, many of them crying, as songs from our youth once again brought timeless feelings and emotions to the fore. Only a truly great artist can achieve this, and Roger is in this special class.
I am looking forward to seeing him again, either in Paris, Geneve, or Amsterdam. It's a show well worth going to, as the themes his music explores are timeless and his music is sublime. (The so-called "Supertramp" tours pale in comparison.)
