Clearwater, FL ~ March 22, 2013 ~ Reflection by Irene Casottana-Greenslade 



"Lady...you've come across the water..."  
Yes, I finally did it! I took a Jumbo across the water to go and see Roger Hodgson perform with his band and orchestra!  
My Florida adventure started with a very full and overbooked flight from London, and it was only thanks to the Captain of my flight that I got special permission to use a crew seat for take off and landing an therefore be able to travel! Soon there I was, standing, on a 10 hour flight to Tampa, without the distraction of any in-flight entertainment, passing time just singing and rehearsing the words of all the songs I knew I was going to hear a couple of nights later in Clearwater! The excitement of the anticipation kept building as I knew that special friends were waiting for me at the other end and, after thanking the Captain for such a special 'lift', ...

Melbourne, AU ~ March 28, 2013 ~ Reflection by Christine Carbone 



Breathe in. Pause. Breathe out. Good advice when giving full attention to a Roger Hodgson song. The Melbourne audience at the St. Kilda Palais Theatre breathed in the salty, sea air to savour the full essence of Roger’s concert with his band. A wonderful musical performance produced a flow of contagious energy amongst the full capacity crowd. Perhaps that was due to the thoughts and discussions the beautifully crafted songs prompted or perhaps due to the songs helping us know ourselves better and taking us to the space between our thoughts. In any case, many of the audience members came back to enhance their memory of Roger’s 2010 concert. The others came to see what all the fuss is about. Sensing the mood, Roger invited us to hug the person sitting next to us, even if we didn’t know each other.


A Soapbox Opera and Sister Moonshine were some of the favourites we were ...

Backstage Pass from Clearwater, Florida 


php/Clearwater II copy.jpg

A whole spectrum of emotions, including laughter, smiles and tears, were felt tonight by the audience at Roger’s sold out show in Clearwater, Florida.  I was amazed at the vast differences in ages of those in attendance.   Parents with children as young as two were sitting next to couples in their 70’s. Roger definitely attracts multiple generations to his shows.

 

There was jubilation in the air and even as the announcer came out on stage, people were already applauding and standing. What an evening we had at Roger’s first US show with an orchestra!  When Roger took the stage, there was a roar of applause.   Fans had been waiting many months for this night, and the wait was finally over.   Yesterday, March 21, was Roger’s birthday and the audience made sure that he knew they did not forget.   In unison, the whole audience sang "Happy Birthday” to ...

Backstage Pass from Switzerland 


php/Crans Montana.jpeg

This was the 10th anniversary of the Caprices Festival in Crans-Montana.  Previously it has been a four day festival and due to its growing popularity, it is now a nine day festival effective with this year.  There are many artists performing from all over the world – something for everyone’s taste.

 

The setting here is spectacular; we are surrounded by beautiful snow capped Swiss Alps in all directions. People came to see Roger tonight from Switzerland, Germany, Spain, France, Belgium, and the US - what a representation we had from our International Community! Although it was a short stay - we arrived the evening before Roger’s performance and leave for the airport at 6:00AM the next morning – we’d make the journey again in a heart beat.  

 

It was nice to be reunited with Aaron, Howard, and Wim again for this duo show and are already looking forward to our next show ...
