Supertramp’s legendary album Breakfast in America comes to life when Classic Albums Live performs the album in its entirety, note for note, cut for cut at Harbourfront Theatre.

Musician Craig Martin founded the acclaimed, Toronto-based concert series in 2003, in which different groups of musicians reproduce every sound heard on the original album. “Classic Albums Live,” he says, “is simple in its quest: note for note – cut for cut. When you have amazing songs, a perfect album and a deep love of music – there’s nothing else needed.”

Supertramp’s Breakfast in America was one of the biggest-selling albums of 1979 and ’80, with the title tune, “The Logical Song” and “Take the Long Way Home” reaching the upper limits of the charts.

“The two distinct vocals within Supertramp are, like the Beatles, the secret ingredient,” Martin explains. “When rehearsing the album we spent a lot of time getting all the layered vocals – they’re complex, melodic and full of meaning, and the sound becomes a siren of joy.”
