    I am so looking forward to seeing my favorite artist, Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp. July 3 cannot get here soon enough! I saw Roger’s 2012 and 2013 shows at Mountain View Plaza and there just isn’t anyone else I’d rather see. Roger’s voice is incredible and what a thrill it is to see him perform my favorites - Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, School, Take the Long Way Home, and so many more! If you were or are a Supertramp fan, get yourself to Roger’s show. See the singer/songwriter of the band’s greatest hits. Honestly, his band sounds even better than the original. See for yourself! You will be so glad you did. I saw all of Roger’s tour details on his Facebook page at https://www.Facebook.com/RogerHodgson.

    Yeah, Snoqualmie Plaza is a nice venue. Hodgson certainly likes it. My report on his 2012 show there at Seattle Music & More at my URL.

    A couple dates look interesting with acts that don’t come around too often, like Deep Purple. Don’t suppose Ritchie Blackmore is with them. Might go for the Happy Together date. Have never seen Negron, Lewis or Ryder and haven’t seen Farner since Ringo’s band played the Pier in ‘95.

    Don’t see the Winter brothers and Kim Simmonds. Did they cancel?
