Roger Hodgson, the legendary songwriter and singer, formerly of Supertramp, announces that he is to perform a very special Night At The Palladium on 28 April 2016, 8pm. Tickets for this London Palladium show go on sale on Friday 9 October 2015, 9am and are available from the venue box offices, select authorised ticket agencies and the tour 24hr Hotline 0844 338 0000 or online at BookingsDirect.com (subject to fees). This show is a result of huge demand following the sell-out of his previously announced show at the Royal Albert Hall, which will take place the following night, 29 April 2016.
Hodgson said, “With the Albert Hall now sold out, I’m thrilled that we could add a second London show at the iconic Palladium. Being a Brit, the Palladium brings back many memories and I look forward to playing on that legendary stage. Fans who have written to me hoping to hear some of my songs from Supertramp days won’t be disappointed. From School to Breakfast in America to The Logical Song and Fool’s Overture and many more I’ll be celebrating the songs that I wrote on my life journey – many of which were inspired by my English upbringing. I’m very glad my UK fans are getting another opportunity to have ‘Breakfast’ with me.”
Roger Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969 and was the band’s innovator and driving force through their “golden years”. He helped define a generation of progressive rock and was the composer and voice of most of Supertramp’s universally enduring anthems – “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “It’s Raining Again,” “School,” “Fool’s Overture” “Child of Vision,” “Hide in Your Shell,” – classic hits.
Hodgson, who won the Ivor Novello Award for The Logical Song in 1980, is one of the most gifted composers, lyricists and performers of our time. He is the soulful musical genius who put the ‘Super’ in Supertramp and is still bringing those songs to life onstage around the world for those who love them. As Rolling Stone said, “All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan when actually I was and am a Roger Hodgson fan. What a show! ‘WOW’ is all I can say.”
