Former Supertramp Frontman Returns
To Reclaim Musical Legacy With UK Dates
Legendary songwriter and vocalist Roger Hodgson is delighted to announce a limited run of UK dates in May 2011, which include a return to the Royal Albert Hall in London. Tickets go on sale on Friday 1st October and can be purchased online at www.bookingsdirect.com or on 0844 338 0000.
Universally acclaimed as one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our times, Roger Hodgson helped define a generation of progressive rock, and wrote and sang such globally successful and enduring anthems as Give a Little Bit, The Logical Song, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, Breakfast In America, School and Fools Overture – timeless songs that helped his former band sell well over 60 million albums to date.
Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969 and for many fans was the heart and spiritual force behind the band for 14 years. Roger’s passion for his music and his art shines through in the magic and intimacy that is felt when he performs his songs in concert. “My songs are pieces of my heart that have touched people in a myriad of ways. It’s a very personal connection I have with people and I honor it.”
In recent weeks, Roger has come forward to make sure fans of his music are aware that, despite how it is being advertised, he is not part of the current Supertramp tour. “It upsets me when fans write to me telling me that misleading advertising using my songs and voice led them to believe that I would be at the concerts, and how disappointed they were not to see me there.”
Roger left Supertramp at the height of their success in 1983, but he never stopped creating and writing music. In his concerts Roger performs his classic Supertramp hits as well as his more recent works. To the vast number of UK fans who have eagerly requested and awaited his return he says simply, “I am delighted to be coming home again for a reunion with my British fans”.
