Roger Hodgson - The Legendary Voice of Supertramp
THE LEGENDARY VOICE OF SUPERTRAMP
**BRINGING HIS FULL BAND TO AUSTRALIA FOR THE FIRST TIME**
Roger Hodgson has been recognised as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters, and lyricists of our time. As the co-founder and legendary voice of Supertramp, he gave us the timeless classics such as “Give a little bit
,” “The Logical Song
,” “Take the Long Way Home
,” “Breakfast In America
,” “Child of Vision
,” “Fool’s Overture
,” and so many others that have become the soundtrack of our lives. Many people don’t 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.
Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969. During the 14 years that he led the band prior do his departure, Supertramp became a worldwide phenomenon with sales of over 60 million albums. Although Roger departed the band in 1983 and moved away from the Los Angeles music scene to Northern California to raise his children and be close to nature, he is still regarded by many as Supertramp’s spiritual and creative force.
His songs have stood the test of time and are more relevant today, if not more so, than when they were released. Hodgson recently received the honour of two awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for “Give a Little Bit” and “Breakfast in America” being in the top played songs in their repertory.
Hodgson is currently on his world tour and selling out shows around the globe, in addition to receiving fantastic reviews from media and fans alike. Don’t miss this one-off opportunity
