Backstage Pass from Peralada, Spain ~ August 8, 2015 



The rains began as we were driving to the venue and came down very hard at times and then stopped in time for the concert. People came and all enjoyed the music. I took a stroll through the Castle grounds of this special festival. It was so pristine and peaceful. I know why the Peralada Festival has been going on for 29 years. 

There was something for everyone on tonightís set list. Many classics as well as fan favorites. Roger dedicated Love is a Thousand Times to Paquita, the late wife of Andreas who was in the audience with his 14-year-old son. Andreas said his wife and sonís mother, Paquita, was a big fan of Rogerís and this was one of her favorite songs. It was a very special moment. 

This is the end of this leg of Rogerís European tour. After a short break he and his band will return to Europe for ...

Backstage Pass from Marbella, Spain ~ August 6, 2015 



Tonight was our first visit back to Starlite Festival in Marbella, Spain since we first played here four years ago. What a tremendous welcome we received; not only from the fans, but also the Starlite Festival staff as well. The Starlite family took such good care of us tonight. It was wonderful to return again and see so many familiar faces of people we met when we first played this special festival. This was one of the shows that the staff all wanted to be out in the audience watching the show! Several mentioned to us afterwards that the response to Roger was great and more passionate and enthusiastic than with most artists. 

Even the VIPs, who are normally not so expressive, were out of their seats throughout the show. Roger clearly lifed the spirit and hearts of everyone there. We had a perfect evening - the heat broke with the gentlest of ...

Backstage Pass from Carcassonne, France ~ August 1, 2015 



WOW, what a day. We finally arrived at this historical venue in Carcassonne after an 18-hour bus ride from the show in Germany last night. We were warmly greeted by the French Fan Club and hugs were all around. 

What a crowd! A true goosebumps moment at the start of the show was when the whole audience rose to their feet the moment Roger came out on stage. The amphitheater was full and the applause was so loud that most likely it could be heard throughout the village. Even the press photographers turned around to get photos of the audience, many of whom were on their feet throughout the night honoring Roger and his music. 

There have been many requests tonight for Roger to play songs from his album, Open the Door, and that he did. The More I Look, Along Came Mary, and Death and a Zoo are some of the songs ...

Backstage Pass from Lauchheim, Germany ~ July 31, 2015 



As I look back at the series of backstage passes on Facebook over the years it magnifies how blessed we are to be able to support Roger sharing his music around the globe.  What touches me the most is witnessing the joy and other deep emotions that people in his audiences experience each night.

Tonight at Schloss Kapfenburg was no exception. The audience gave Roger a really warm welcome when he came on stage and when Roger asked how many were here last time, many raised their hands.  Unlike the heavy rain on our previous visit, tonight was perfectly clear.

The audience especially loved Had a Dream, a hit song from his first solo album, In the Eye of the Storm, featuring Roger on electric guitar!

We will see you tomorrow in France at Festival de Carcassonne Officiel​!

Linda and Shakti
