An incredible moment! Here is a little excerpt as a logical gift
More pictures [here]
Logicaltramp will now be 6 people for most concerts, our frontman Gary
Hopkins playing all piano & keys parts by himself! It's a genuine
performance to deal with all thoses parts with only 2 hands and one brain...
;-) and Gary's doing pretty well on that!
Helliwell sent this picture to Laurent (our saxophonist) this morning
saxophone in 1983".
John used to play this tenor saxophone
until 2003 when he passed it to Laurent for further Supertramp musical adventures
with Logicaltramp. He bought it in 1964 and played it on all Supertramp albums
and concerts throughout the world...
John and Laurent are sharing a genuine
friendship since 1989 when they first met in Paris, and keep seeing each other
whenever they can whether in UK or France. Sometimes fairy tales come true...

PIECE OF HISTORY ! The genuine sax microphone used on stage by Supertramp
for many years and now with Logicaltramp (on some occasions...) You can still
see the word "sax" written by Supertramp sound engineer during
their 1979 tour... (A beautiful gift from John Helliwell)! Many pictures are showing this microphone wrapped into a weird black cover,
facing John. Here it is... How lucky we are!
enjoyed very much playing again in Spain, at the beautiful Palau
de la Musica in Barcelona... THANK YOU Barcelona for
your amazing support! We had to come back on stage for a second encore and we
served an unreheased "Lady" after our traditional "Crime of the century"!
