Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson returns to Montreal
Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson – Back in the 70s, Montreal’s favourite rock group was Supertramp, the British group whose albums “Crime of the Century”, “Even in the Quietest Moments” and “Breakfast in America” flew off the shelves at record stores across the city, and whose concerts always played to sold out crowds at the Forum.
And whether your favourite Supertramp songs were “The Logical Song”, “School”, “Give A Little Bit” or “Dreamer”, you couldn’t mistake the distinctive voice that fronted (and wrote) these hit songs: Roger Hodgson, who co-founded Supertramp and performed with the group from 1969 to 1983.
Hodgson — whose new album is “Classics Live”, a collection of his hit songs with Supertramp that were recorded live during a series of concerts he performed in around the world – is about to go on tour again in 2018 and sing those hit songs that helped Supertramp sell over 60 million albums throughout their time as international rock music superstars. Hodgson will be making a stop in Montreal for one show only on October 30, 2018 at Salle Wilfrid Pelletier of Place des Arts as part of his Breakfast in America Tour. Tickets for this show are now on sale and cost between $59.50 and $99.50, with a limited number of VIP Meet & Greet and Soundcheck packages available.

Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, along with Montreal’s own Les 7 Doigts circus performance troupe, will start 2018 with a new show filled with humour, poetry, digital illusions and body movement called “Temporel”, which is about to dazzle audiences for a brief run at Place des Arts’ La Cinquieme Salle from January 10 to 27.
“Temporel” tells the story of a individual man’s life not in chronological order, but in fragments and out of sequence, as he encounters different characters throughout different stages of his life, as he struggles to find his place in this complex world. The story behind “Temporel” is told not in the conventional staged manner, but through the projection of images onto the bodies of the show’s performers, as they perform symbolic feats of acrobatics.
