"Breakfast in America" Tour
For the first time ever in Hungary, Supertramp co-founder Roger Hodgson will perform on stage in Veszprém, who announced his tour in Europe as „Crime of the Century” celebrates 40th anniversary. „BREAKFAST IN AMERICA” tour give audiences world-wide the opportunity to once again experience the magic and spirit that Hodgson created with Supertramp.
Hodgson, one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time, cofounded the progressive rock band Supertramp in 1969. Roger was the driving force behind what fans call the "golden years" of the band that made Supertramp a worldwide phenomenon with album sales in excess of 60 million. He wrote, sang, and arranged such enduring rock standards as "Breakfast in America," "Give a Little Bit," "Take the Long Way Home," "The Logical Song," "Dreamer," "It's Raining Again," "School," and "Fool's Overture."
Uniting generations, Hodgson is transporting baby boomers back to their youth while giving younger concertgoers a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. In fact, this year marks the 40th Anniversary of "Crime of the Century," released in September 1974. Hodgson continues to perform in concert all four of the songs that he contributed to the album - "School," "Hide in Your Shell," "If Everyone Was Listening" and the perennial classic "Dreamer," that became Supertramp's first international runaway hit, propelling “Crime of the Century” to the top of the charts.
