Backstage Pass from Aurich, Germany ~ August 28, 2014It’s so wonderful to be back in Germany again with Roger and his band and audiences who have grown up listening to his songs and passing them down to their children. As I walked into the venue here in Aurich during intermission, I saw many people that I have seen at shows throughout Europe over the years. I thought it was a really good show and this was confirmed by all the comments that I heard as I walked down the aisle. Many were saying, “wow, it just keeps getting better,” “the sound is so clear,” “his voice is so strong,” “I felt 17 again,” and beyond that there were many smiles from all! We’re off on the tour bus to Leipzig to do it again tomorrow!Linda Photo by Linda Tyler

What is your favorite Roger Hodgson / Supertramp lyric and why? ~

My friends, we’re not alone
He waits in silence to lead us all home

"Fool’s Overture was actually three separate pieces of music that I put together in what I think is a magnificent, kind of epic piece of music. It’s such a thrill when I play this song with a full symphony – I get goosebumps still to this day every time.” ~ Roger Hodgson 

Imagine Fool’s Overture with an orchestra. You can see Roger live with a symphony orchestra in Aachen, Germany on September 1 and Rama, ON, Canada on November 14 and 15. 

Additional details for all of Roger’s remaining 2014 concerts may be found on the Events tab here on the page or at http://www.RogerHodgson.com/
