The Egg, Tuesday


Supertramp were never quite as freaky as their prog-rock brethren of the ’70s. But if you do the numbers, they probably had more hits. Chalk that up to the Lennon-McCartney-style songwriting competition between bandleaders Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson. “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song” and “Dreamer” were all the work of Hodgson, who has released three solo albums since his split from the band. Expect plenty of Wurlitzer piano and prog breakdowns when Hodgson brings a set of his original compositions to the Egg on Tuesday. (Oct. 22, 8 PM, $49.50-$79.50, Empire State Plaza, Albany, 473-1845)
