"It's Raining Again" is always an audience favorite, getting everyone on their feet dancing, singing and clapping along.
“I love performing these songs which continue to resound for me as a performer and for the fans. My songs come from a very personal place inside me and they carry my beliefs and my dreams and my philosophy of life. I understand the deep connection that fans have with my songs that have been a part of so many peoples’ lives around the world.” ~ Roger Hodgson
Roger Hodgson’s latest release, Classics Live, is a spectacular collection of live performances from his solo, band and orchestra shows around the world recorded on his 2010 World Tour. Roger, co-founder of Supertramp, is the singer/songwriter of the band's greatest hits to include Dreamer, Give a Little Bit, Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Take the Long Way Home, Fool's Overture, It's Raining Again, Hide in Your Shell, and so very many more.
Roger began writing songs at the age of 12 and performed his first concert of original songs at the age of 13. He later recorded some of his songs with Supertramp and many of them have become the soundtrack of our lives. Although Roger and Supertramp’s other co-founder, Rick Davies, shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own songs. Every song Roger performs in concert was written and composed by him.

Here are some messages Roger has received from fans all over the world ~
"I've had the pleasure to see a bunch of your shows, both solos and with your band, and it has always been a memorable moment. I have to say that your shows definitely stand in a warm place in my mind and heart.It's always a pleasure seeing an artist enjoying his audience this much. Thank you, sir !"
"Great. Brought up my kids on Roger's songs. Every song he sang, and new ones included were invigorating and often poignant. His saxophonist was truly amazing. No props just pure music and a pure voice that haunts and thrills.""
"Roger having listened to your music for over 30 years now, I find myself more moved and further enriched by your music as the years go on. Your music is endless. I have to say you are a true reflection of your music. An Inspiration. Sing on."
Classics Live Review
For most of my life, I've loudly and proudly identified myself as a Supertramp fan. All these years later, I listen with awe to the altogether stunning new Classics Live album only to discover that I am, in fact, first and foremost, a major Roger Hodgson fan. His is the voice that spoke to me as a young man, and speaks to me even more powerfully all these years later. An utterly inspired collection of live performances of the best-loved songs that Roger Hodgson has written and sung to date, Classics Live reminds us in the most vivid way who brought the world such beloved rock standards as "Give A Little Bit," "Take The Long Way Home," "The Logical Song" and "Dreamer," and why these shining songs endure as deeply personal yet somehow universal expression of longing, love and our endless search for human connection. Roger Hodgson may have taken the long way home, but with Classics Live he's back and he has never sounded better.
