To celebrate 40 years in the business, since the release in 1970 of their first album “Supertramp”, Rick Davies and some of the members of group are back on stage with their European 70-10 Tour.
Supertramp, a British progressive rock band, released a series of top-selling albums in the 1970s and early 1980s. In 1969, Roger Hodgson, joined Rick Davies in the formation of the group with other members including Richard Palmer (guitar, balalaika, vocals) and Robert Millar (percussion, harmonica). Initially, Roger Hodgson sang and played bass guitar (and, on the side, guitar, cello and flageolet). The band was called Daddy from August 1969 to January 1970, and before releasing their first album the name was changed to Supertramp.
This 70-10 Tour tour will begin on September 2, 2010 in Halle, Germany and will include thirty-five shows in France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Holland, England and Ireland.
Joining one of Supertramp’s founders, lead singer and keyboardist, Rick Davies, are other members of the band, John Anthony Helliwell, saxophones and woodwinds, and Bob Siebenberg, drums. Veterans of past Supertramp tours, Jesse Siebenberg, lead vocals, guitars and percussion, Cliff Hugo, bass, Carl Verheyen, guitars and Lee Thornburg, horns, will round out the lineup. Co-founder and composer Roger Hodgson will not participate.
The band will be presenting the Supertramp 70-10 Tour in Barcelona at the Palau Sant Jordi on September 18.
