Backstage Pass from Heerlen, Netherlands ~ July 11, 2015 



Holland loves Roger - tonight reminded me of Woodstock and concerts from my youth where you showed up early in the day with your family and friends and staked out a spot with your blanket and enjoyed music all day long in the warm sun.

Music is definitely the language that needs no translation - good music touches the hearts and souls of all cultures and ignites memories. In this case it is clear that Roger’s music has been passed down through the generations. From the first song, it was a big sing-a-long. What a tribute to any artist who has written songs that have meant so much to so many all over the world. My favorite part of any concert is watching the audience as they are taken on an emotional journey. Many here have also seen Roger before at Bospop and other areas. 

Roger was clearly enjoying himself tonight! He certainly ...

Backstage Pass from Bertrix, Belgium ~ July 10, 2015 



It was a picture perfect evening in Bertrix. Driving through the countryside from our hotel to the venue before the show showed me why people choose to live in this region. This was the fourth year of the festival and it was clearly a community event, families and kids of all ages came together to hear Roger and his band perform in the city streets. A big THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who welcomed us so warmly. We'd love to take you up on your invitation to return again!

Holland - here we come! Cheers, Linda

Backstage Pass from Murcia, Spain ~ July 8, 2015 



Olé, Olé, Olé! As soon as Roger walked on stage tonight in Murcia, Spain, the audience rose to their feet and the cell phones went up to capture the moment. When people are standing from the moment Roger walks out, you know it’s going to be an amazing show. Tonight was just that. I fell in love again with the people of Spain and felt their enthusiasm and hearts filling the arena. 

The thing that struck me so strongly these past few days in Spain is the emotions of the people. Each country has it’s own flavor and amidst all of life’s challenges I can deeply feel their passion for living. 

It was no secret hat Roger was in town. When we arrived, everywhere you turned, we saw his face - on billboards, in newspapers, and we heard his voice on the radio singing and inviting everyone to his concert to night. 

Next, we ...

Backstage Pass from Valencia, Spain ~ July 7, 2015 



When we arrived in Spain a few days ago and were very warmly welcomed the minute we set foot off the plane. We’ve been enjoying eating a variety of Spanish foods –Paella, Tapas, Chorizos, Traditional Jamon, Gaspacho, Pescados y Marisco…

So everyone was in a great mood and ready for tonight. The show started heating up in the second half. Roger came out playing The Meaning and then the audience rushed the stage when he went into Had a Dream, then Child of Vision, Don’t Leave me now, Dreamer…..wow! When the show ended the audience broke into chanting Roger - Roger - Roger and then the familiar ole - ole - ole - that of course brought Roger and the band back on stage for a few more. 

I wanted to take a moment and send a special thanks to Ana Lopez and also to Cándido Pérez Márquez and Vidal Cancho for helping to keep ...

Backstage Pass from Calw, Germany ~ July 4, 2015 



The temperature finally dropped down from the record 38 degrees from earlier in the day as we approached the concert time. It ended up begin a picture perfect night and as I walked through the crowd I met lots of friends and fans from countries all over Europe. 

The city streets were full to overflowing and many filled the windows above as well. I went up to the VIP room in one of the charming Tudor style buildings to see their view and to capture a shot. As soon as I walk into the room Roger started playing Had a Dream and all the guests immediately jumped on their feet and started dancing. I should have snapped a photo of them as well - they were all having so much fun!

Roger mentioned to the audience that today is the 16th birthday of the son of our bass player, David. The whole ...
