Backstage Pass from Aurich, Germany ~ August 28, 2014 



It’s so wonderful to be back in Germany again with Roger and his band and audiences who have grown up listening to his songs and passing them down to their children.  As I walked into the venue here in Aurich during intermission, I saw many people that I have seen at shows throughout Europe over the years.  

I thought it was a really good show and this was confirmed by all the comments that I heard as I walked down the aisle.  Many were saying, "wow, it just keeps getting better,"  "the sound is so clear," "his voice is so strong,"  "I felt 17 again," and beyond that there were many smiles from all!   We’re off on the tour bus to Leipzig to do it again tomorrow!

Backstage Pass from Naperville, IL ~ July 5, 2014 



We end this tour leg tonight here in Naperville, IL, having traversed many countries and time zones in the last three weeks – beginning in Oslo, Norway, taking a jaunt to the UK for a private show, then on to Paris and Blainville Crevon, France, before making our way down to Terceira – one of the Azore islands off the coast of Portugal. After that we performed for the first time in Sofia, Bulgaria then headed back to where we began in the USA returning for the third time to Snoqualmie, WA and finally tonight here in Naperville, IL – just outside Chicago. We’re all pretty whipped from the travel and jet lag and all agree that touring with Roger is never boring!

This is the 27th year for the Naperville Ribfest - Presented by Exchange Cluband they are projecting 45,000 coming during the four days. There are two stages, with five ...

Backstage Pass from Snoqualmie, WA ~ July 3, 2014 



Another magical experience tonight…  

As Roger started to play his first note of the concert, a Bald Eagle in a nest in a tree to the side of the stage poked his head up and spread his wings wide open.  How cool is that?  Guess we have another new fan. ☺

Roger opened the Snoqualmie Casino summer concert series tonight with his third year performing here at Mountain View Plaza, an awesome outside venue surrounded by beautiful trees.   This year I saw people I knew who came from as far south as San Diego and as far north as Vancouver.   Great audience tonight and everyone seemed captivated when Roger included several songs in his set list that are not regularly played such as Love is a Thousand Times, Babaji, Along Came Mary, and The Meaning.  

For those who were at the show tonight and for all others around the ...

Backstage Pass from Sofia, Bulgaria ~ July 1, 2014 



It took us two days to get to Bulgaria from the Azores, but it was well worth it. The people here in Sofia are so warm hearted and the food is amazing! We were given VIP treatment from the moment that we arrived and would return in a heartbeat.

Roger did attempt to speak a little Bulgarian…fortunately for him, most of the audience at the show at the National Palace of Culture understood English. 

We will be leaving at 4:00AM for the airport – heading to Seattle for our next concert on July 3 at Snoqualmie Casino - http://bit.ly/1ucXaE8. That’s life on the road…

Cheers,
Linda

Backstage Pass from Terceira, Azores ~ June 28, 2014 



Thousands of people in Terceira filled the cobblestoned streets on their way to the venue to see Roger's show tonight. For over 30 years, the Sanjoaninas Festival has been bringing international talent to the Azores. Roger and his band were the grand finale for the last night of this year's festival. 

There were technical issues with several power outages at the beginning of the show. All was fine at sound check earlier in the day, but by the end of the first song of the show, Roger's keyboard went out and the mics started going silent one by one. 

Hats off to the fantastic audience of over 10,000 who did not budge an inch! They waited patiently for the show to go on. After a reset by the technical crew, Roger and his band regained the stage and rocked out along with the people who came to the party. A wonderful night was had ...
