The legend is back on a worldwide tour that is selling out everywhere and his signature voice is stronger than ever. For the first time in the U.S., Roger will perform with a rock symphony orchestra when he performs at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Gifted composer, lyricist and legendary voice of Supertramp, which he co-founded, Roger Hodgson is known for setting beautiful, introspective lyrics to upbeat melodies. "Give a Little Bit", "Dreamer", "It's Raining Again", "Take the Long Way Home", "The Logical Song", "Breakfast in America" and "Fool's Overture" are among his hits.
Hodgson co-founded the progressive rock band Supertramp in 1969 and was with them for 14 years. He wrote and sang most of the classic hits that brought Supertramp worldwide acclaim. Roger recently received 2 awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for his songs being in the top played songs in their repertory, proving that they have indeed stood the test of time.
"The highest compliment that Roger can be paid is that he probably sounds better live today than in the recording studio more than a generation ago." - Evening Standard London, Review from The Royal Albert Hall Concert.
"There are few vocalists instantly recognizable from the first few bars of a song but Roger Hodgson is certainly one of that unique group. The singer/songwriter of Supertramp, his voice is as unmistakable as the distinct keyboard sound of his early hits." - The Times- London, Review from The Royal Albert Hall Concert.
