Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson, will play Thebarton Theatre on Feb 6th as part of his world tour to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of rock’s all time biggest albums, Breakfast in America. As both singer and songwriter, Roger’s songs are timeless, and his mesmerising performances continue to connect in powerful ways to fans globally.

Breakfast in America was the #1 album of 1979 in the Australian charts, holding the top spot for six weeks, sold over 20 million copies worldwide, cemented Supertramp as one of the most iconic bands of all time and spawned hits such as The Logical Song, Breakfast in America and Take The Long Way Home.

Roger Hodgson’s incredible songwriting however came to the fore several years prior with the ageless classics Dreamer and Give A Little Bit that first called the world to the magic of his introspective lyrics and upbeat melodies.

“I’m thrilled to bring Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson to Adelaide to celebrate an iconic album that is as beloved today as ever. This will be a magical night under the stars in Thebarton Theatre and one of those ‘must see’ events. Ticket demand will be high so I’d suggest people get in fast to secure their seats” said Phil Rankine from Space Events.

Born in Portsmouth, England, Roger spent much of his childhood at boarding school where his guitar became his best friend. From the age of twelve he began writing songs and added piano, bass, drums and cello to his musical abilities. After his final school year he recorded his first studio single “Mr. Boyd” with a session band including pianist Reg Dwight, later to be known as Elton John.

Not long after, Roger co-founded Supertramp. Their first self-titled album was released in 1970 and followed on with four studio albums, including the breakthrough hit-song Dreamer on the album Crime of the Century in 1974, and of course the incredible success of Breakfast in America released in 1979.

In 1983 – after the release of Famous Last Words and a massive stadium tour – Roger parted ways with Supertramp to follow his heart and pursue a simpler lifestyle, raising his family close to nature and honing his spirituality. With a renewed slower pace Roger released three solo albums, collaborated with Ringo Starr in his All Starr Band, performed at the 2007 Concert for Princess Diana at Wembley Stadium and continued to compose music and write lyrics in his state-of-the-art home studio. Only when his children were fully grown did Roger feel the call to tour regularly again. He was met with an ever-strong fan base and consistently sold-out theatres and arenas worldwide.
