bman, sorry he didnt play "Even in the Quietest moments" for you. Its one of my favorites and he played it all three times I saw him. I particularly enjoyed the story he told about how the song came to him while sitting around a fire in the Northern California woods. He's the first performer Ive seen spend that much time talking about the origin of his songs since Springsteen (though he mostly gave up doing that many years ago).

Not only does Hodgson not play any of Davies, songs, he says that it's supposed to be a reciprocal contractual agreement. Davies (who continues to perform sporadically as "Supertramp" with two other members of the classic lineup) isn't supposed to play any of the Hodgson songs, but he includes about half a dozen of them in his set list. (Davies cancelled Supertramp's 2015 European tour when he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.)

Here's info about the songwriting issue:
