Fool's Overture, Roger Hodgson - Voice of Supertramp, with Orchestra

Roger Hodgson performing the epic masterpiece he wrote and composed, Fool's Overture. This glorious song came to life when Roger put three separate pieces of music together that he had & it all beautifully came together. Roger says he always envisioned performing Fool's Overture with an orchestra. See Roger, co-founder of Supertramp, perform Fool's Overture on tour: or

"Fool's Overture" is one of my favorite pieces that I've ever written. It was very magical the way it came together. It was actually three separate pieces of music that I had for a few years and then, one day, they kind of all slotted together in what I think is a magnificent, kind of epic piece of music. I always imagined performing it with an orchestra, so when I did start playing with orchestras back in the '90s, it was such a thrill to play this song. I mean, I still get goosebumps to his day every time I get an opportunity to play it with an orchestra." ~Roger Hodgson

Experience in concert the singer/songwriter who gave us Dreamer, Give a Little Bit, Take the Long Way Home, Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, It's Raining Again & more.

"Roger's voice is gold & unchanged from his Supertramp days. His band was incredible, the sound the best I've ever heard in a live show.There was a lot of love in the room, so well deserved." 

"Brilliant concert.Every song so well done. A concert where you could hear a pin drop between the quieter sections because every single person was totally transfixed on the beautiful sounds they were hearing. I will always remember this one and when my friend asks how was it i'll say truly just the best."

"We've been waiting since the 70s to see Supertramp, but in the end we are pleased that we got to see Roger on his own with his new band. This man is pure genius. He opened his concert with long way home & instantly had tears streaming down my face. His voice, his passion I think is so much stronger now than back in the day of Supertramp. 2 hours of sheer delight."
"To the adoring fans who rise to their feet as Hodgson and his four-piece backing band take the might as well be 1979 all over again." Rolling Stone

"He is a consummate musician that takes his craft seriously. Every aspect of his performance was flawless." Classic Rock Revisited

"This is the real deal: a legendary music man, in brilliant form and shimmering presence, supported by a tight, terrific band. When you can catch a show, go. An evening with Roger Hodgson will raise your standards of concert-going." Huffington Post
Performance is from Night of the Proms 2004 France
