Roger performed to an overjoyed crowd of 15,000 for the 50th edition of the International Song Festival of Viña del Mar in Chile, which was broadcast live on television across the country and worldwide. Roger was also honored with all three awards of the international festival - la Antorcha de Plata (Silver Torch), la Antorcha de Oro (Golden Torch) and la Gaviota de Plata (Silver Gull).
He is the Voice you have been listening to on almost all the classic hit songs that were recorded by Supertramp, the Voice people all over the world love. Many people do not realize that although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs.

Roger comments on his evergreen classic, Breakfast in America - "It's consistently one of the most popular songs in the set and it just seems to ignite a wave of joy in the audience when they hear the first chords. Never could I have imagined when I wrote this song at age 19 that it would be gaining in popularity, if that is even possible, over 40 years later. It's the playful, fun, jubilant quality that people love to hear and sing along to." ~ Roger Hodgson

"You exceeded my expectations. You are truly a legend and I must say I was profoundly touched by your humility and gentle personality, thank you, merci, for such a memorable evening. Your music will forever be eternal."
"I have to say you sound like you did when I was 15 buying your albums. I had goose bumps most of the night. I think you actually care about your guests and we all felt so welcome my friend. Thanks for an experience that will stay with me for the rest of my days."
