Breakfast in America will be served in the evening Feb. 26 when Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, performs in The Villages.

Roger’s show is scheduled for 7pm at the Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center, 1051 Main St. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, Dec. 11, and can be purchased at getoffthebusconcerts.com and thesharon.com or by calling 352.753.3229. This Get Off the Bus Concerts show is in support of Habitat for Humanity of Lake -Sumter Florida, a news release states.

Roger, accompanied by a four-piece band, is touring the world with his Breakfast in America tour, named for the 1979 blockbuster Supertramp album that included hits such as “The Logical Song,” “Goodbye Stranger” and “Take the Long Way Home.”

Supertramp was founded in 1969, and Roger was with the band until his departure in 1983. During those 14 years, he wrote, arranged and sang with his distinctive voice most of the band’s top songs. Classics such as “Give a Little Bit,” “Dreamer,” “School,” “Fool’s Overture” and “It’s Raining Again” helped the band sell well over 60 million albums, the release states.

Roger’s latest release, “Classics Live,” is a collection of his hit songs from concerts recorded around the world and is available through his Store and iTunes. He continues to perform all of the hits that he first recorded with Supertramp along with his other classics such as “Sister Moonshine,” “Child of Vision,” “Hide in Your Shell,” “Even in the Quietest Moments,” and fan favorites from his solo albums, including “Had a Dream,” “Only Because of You,” “Lovers in the Wind,” “In Jeopardy” and “Along Came Mary.”
