Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson Returns to U.S. with Breakfast in America Tour

Mail Attachment

Following on the heels of sellout shows in Australia, the U.K., and Europe, Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson will return to the U.S. with his Breakfast in America Tour. A series of select dates start August 11 at the Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa, California, and will include at least eight other stops on both coasts.

Concurrent with the tour, Hodgson has announced the forthcoming release of a new CD, Classics Live 2. The disc joins Classics Live 1 in the Hodgson catalog, which is available on  iTunes.

Hodgson helped propel Supertramp to international superstardom in the 70’s with album sales of well over 60 million, including 1979’s stellar blockbuster, Breakfast in America, which alone sold upwards of 20 million copies. Timeless in nature, his songs have played on the radio continuously for more than thirty-five years. Now, in concert, Hodgson reignites memories and emotions with a heart-stirring voice that both critics and fans declare is sounding better than ever.

Uniting generations, Hodgson transports baby boomers back to their youth while giving younger concertgoers a taste of why his classic songs have endured. With his repertoire also including fan favorites such as “Child of Vision,”  “Fool’s Overture,” “Hide in Your Shell,” “Even in the Quietest Moments,” and “School,” audiences are once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp. Accompanied by a four-piece band, Hodgson also performs favorites from his solo albums such as “Only Because of You,” “Lovers in the Wind,” and “In Jeopardy.”

Aug 11 – Costa Mesa, CA – Pacific Amphitheatre

Aug 12 – Snoqualmie, WA – Snoqualmie Casino

    I am so happy that my favorite artist, Roger Hodgson, is touring the US. I have been a Supertramp fan for years and particularly a huge fan of Roger and his songs such as Give a Little Bit, Breakfast in America, Take the Long Way Home, The Logical Song, Dreamer, and so many more. Don’t miss the opportunity to see Roger in concert. His show is the best of the best. Amazing voice and what a connection he has with his audience. I can’t wait to see him in Atlanta on Aug. 18. Few more days!

    Roger made a great job in Supertramp because with such great songs he wrote it’s impossible not to have success! Thanks to his songs and voice I discovered Supertramp in my teens and made me love all Supertramp work

    But, nowadays Roger is even better surround by his astonishing band. His shows are full of magic, so, he doesn’t need to rejoin with his old mates to give us all the joy and fun. Everybody should attend one of his shows and experience by himself all the feelings over there, and sure you’ll repeat, no matter how far you have to travel to see him ;)

    The best show ever. I’m very happy to enjoy Roger’s shows because he always gives something more to his audience, I never feel tired to attend his shows! A must to see!!

    Roger Hodgson is our compass, he makes a great job in these difficult times, his shows bring us all the joy for two hours. What else we can ask? Thanks to Roger Hodgson for his music :)

    What good news!!! Classics Live 1 is fantastic, so, can’t wait to have Classics Live 2 in my hands to enjoy all his great songs together!!
