Prompted by the damaging impact of Hurricane Sandy to the East Coast, legendary songwriter and vocalist ROGER HODGSON of the group Supertramp, announced several changes to the North American leg of his popular “Breakfast in America” tour, which resumes tomorrow, including fundraising for the Red Cross.
"We have been closely following the effects and recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy and our sympathy goes out to all of those whose lives have been affected.” Roger Hodgson commented. “Knowing the challenges that many people are currently facing, we are working with each promoter to reschedule shows and to find ways to 'give a little bit' to help the local communities.”
Hodgson’s song, “Give a Little Bit” was used this week during ABC TV’s “Day of Giving” telethon encouraging all of us to reach out to the victims of Hurricane Sandy by giving whatever we can to the Red Cross. Click here for the lyrics.
A portion of proceeds from Roger Hodgson’s Nov. 8 concert at Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, NJ will be donated to the American Red Cross.
Tickets for all rescheduled shows will be honored on their new dates, and Hodgson will be offering a special bonus surprise at certain venues for current ticket holders! So hold onto your tickets!
