Supertramp has announced the continuation of their acclaimed "70-10 TOUR", which celebrates forty-plus years since the release of their first album, Supertramp in 1970. The next leg of the tour will begin on May 31, 2011 in Victoria, B.C. and will include stops in 12 Canadian cities including Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa.

Once again, joining Supertramp's founder, lead singer and keyboardist, Rick Davies, are legendary Supertramp members 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. Cassie Miller and Gabe Dixon, who joined the band last fall, are back too.

"I was really proud of our performances on the last tour," said Rick Davies. "There was a great chemistry between all of us. These guys are incredible musicians and playing together each night was a lot of fun. And that fun transcended to the audience." When asked whether Roger Hodgson might appear on some of the dates Davies replied, "I know there are some fans out there who would like that to happen. There was a time when I had hoped for that too. But the recent past makes that impossible. In order to play a great show for our fans, you need harmony, both musically and personally. Unfortunately that doesn't exist between us anymore and I would rather not destroy memories of more harmonious times between all of us."

Rick Davies, along with set and lighting designer, Michael Brian Duncan, developed a new stage production that excited audiences with a classic Supertramp experience, a delight for both the eyes and ears. Reviews of the shows were very positive throughout the 2010 European tour, fueling the demand for these new shows in 2011. The band will again perform a plethora of classics from their forty-year history, including "Bloody Well Right", "Dreamer", "From Now On", "Goodbye Stranger", "The Logical Song", "Rudy" and many, many more.
