Supertramp

About 13,000 middle aged fans gathered to listen to Supertramp, a band Montreal music fans helped put o­n the map back in 1975. Roger Hodgson departure over 15 years ago didn't deter anyone from coming out for a night of nostalgia. Before the curtains rolled up and the lights flashed, a soulful iridescent harmonica intro meandered into "School." Suddenly the audience began to stand and sway; it was just the beginning of this two hour concert. Rick Davies o­n Keyboards and vocals along with John Helliwell, wind instruments and vocals brought us back to the music we grew up with and still keep close to our hearts today. Do you may remember 1974's Crime Of The Century and 1975's Crisis, What Crisis? And of course let's not forget 1979's masterpiece, Breakfast In America. All in all Supertramp has sold over 35 million albums world wide and has sold out hundreds of venues, yet it seems evident that a big part of Supertramp's collective essence still remains here with us in Montreal. The band arrived a couple of days early to play an impromptu gig at "Upstairs" jazz bar and just to hang out in a city they feel a strong connection to. Check out the set list:
