    Roger’s music is timeless and his concerts are an experience you won’t soon forget. He grabs a hold of you the moment he steps on stage. A couple of notes in he gives you a good shake and sends you flying through some of the best memories of your life. Soon you’ll find yourself laughing, crying, and everything in between. At the end of the night you will be begging for more and plotting and scheming how to get to his next concert. See you at the concert!

    It’s great to have Roger Hodgson on the road again!!!

    What a wonderful experience is to attend a Roger’s show. When you see him once, you can’t stop, and need to see him once and another. It doesn’t matter how far you have to travel, you are sure you’ll enjoy. A show by Roger is a big party, a big celebration of love,peace and happiness. All together clapping, singing, dancing, and sometimes, also weeping…It’s a thrill, a blast, chills and goosebumps, all at the same time… So, nobody should miss a concert of Roger. It’s really worth!!!

    I wish I could attend one of these gigs, Breakfast in America in America, those stories about Hollywood, Taco Bell, Texas, girls in Cali, whoa !If must be like Dave Bowie singing Space Oditty in the international space station or Pink Floyd perfoming Dark Side of The moon in the Moon…
    Really the best stage and scenery to play Breakfast in America, where else?.

    Go….travel, you must see a Roger Hodgson performance, for you will experience his soft spoken, candid, humble presences that puts you at ease and than he starts to sing. His voice sounds better than ever! His songs (Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Give a Little Bit) are a part of your fondest memories. You have no doubt who he is performing for, the sea of faces before him, his fans. What do you feel, love.

    Check out his current tour concert offerings:

    You will never forget the evening you spent with Roger, never……

    Counting the days until I can see my favorite artist in concert again. Talk about being hooked. I saw Roger Hodgson last year and immediately started planning for the next time I could see him. Fantastic concert and what a voice he has. Am going to try to get to as many shows this year as I can. SO HAPPY that Roger is touring the US!

    Although a big part in the formation of the original Supertramp, Rick Davies in fact founded Supertramp. Rick was in a band called ‘The Joint’ which was unsuccessful, but a Dutch millionaire named Sam Miesseges took a shine to Rick and helped him fund his next venture. Rick put an ad for auditions in a music publication: out of those auditions he found Roger.

    The best Breakfast in America you can have :)

    And lifetime experience. It’s well Roger Hodgson who brought the most of the greatest hits to Supertramp.

    Today’s Breakfast is more bucolic than ever!! And Roger Hodgson on the summit of his legendary voice and musical performance.

    Let’s taste the Breakfast and Enjoy. You won’t regret!

    Without Roger Hodgson, there would not have been a Supertramp. It is Roger who wrote and composed the band’s greatest hits. It’s Roger’s songs that fans want to hear, which is obviously why Rick performs them (that’s putting it nicely) in concert. All this time I thought I was a Supertramp fan when in fact I was and am a Roger Hodgson fan.

    Supertramp co-founder Roger Hodgson is starting his Breakfast in America Tour this month in Temecula, CA at Pechanga Casino and Resort. Roger is the singer/songwriter of the majority of the band’s biggest hits, to include”Dreamer,” “Give a Little Bit.” “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast in America,” “Take the Long Way Home,” and “It’s Raining Again.” Many people don’t know that although Roger and the other co-founder, Rick Davies, shared writing credit, they each actually wrote and composed separately.

    Roger left Supertramp in 1983 to raise his children. Since his departure, he has released several solo albums and for the past few years has been touring worldwide in a variety of formats to include solo, with band, and with orchestra. I have seen Roger in concert many times and can’t get enough. His shows are fantastic. Check out his tour details at http://www.RogerHodgson.com.

    All you have to do is see Roger once & you will be forever changed… you’ll find yourself dreaming of his next show & even the one after that! Very few artists have an unchanged voice after all these years, and I promise you Roger *never* disappoints. He is the genius behind the many hits of Supertramp and this is the Breakfast In America World Tour with a full band! The audience will soon become your friends, sharing in all of the joy and the beautiful, ethereal music. Just imagine him, with his twelve-string guitar… “Even in the quietest moments, I wish I knew…” From one heart to another, go see him. You will leave glowing from the inside, your soul uplifted & a guaranteed smile on your face. :) “You find your way,” & “I’ll meet you when you’re there!” :)

    Message from Roger to All Who Came to His Recent Shows
    “Thank you for welcoming me back to America so enthusiastically. I’m really happy to be back touring and singing my songs that have meant so much to you for many years. I often tell people that I have the greatest fans in the world – and I look forward to playing for many more of you this year.”
