SUPERTRAMP have announced their 70-10 TOUR, celebrating 40 years since the release of their first album, Supertramp, in 1970.

The band that helped define a generation of progressive music, and penned both critically acclaimed and globally successful anthems such as The Logical Song, Breakfast in America, Dreamer and Give A Little Bit, return on October 6, 2010 at London’s 02 Arena.

Tickets are priced from £42.50 (plus booking charge), and are available from www.kililive.com

Joining Supertramp’s founder, lead singer and keyboardist, Rick Davies, are legendary Supertramp members John Anthony Helliwell and Bob Siebenberg, while veterans of past Supertramp tours, Jesse Siebenberg, Cliff Hugo, Carl Verheyen and Lee Thornburg will round out the line-up.

Rick Davies, along with set and lighting designer, Michael Brian Duncan, is developing a new stage production that will provide the audience with a total Supertramp experience, a delight for both the eyes and ears.

Rehearsals are currently underway in New York and during the two hour-plus show the band will perform a plethora of classics from their 40-year history.
