Toulon, France ~ July 27, 2010 ~ Linda Gianotti 



What a setting.  Rogerís show at the Festival Voix du Gaou (near Toulon) took place on an island surrounded by the most beautiful water that is many glorious shades of blue.   Under a beautiful star filled sky with a full moon, Roger came out on stage to the roar of applause from the near-capacity crowd.    Everyone was on their feet and so very eager to hear the man who gave us eternal classics that we have loved for decades.    Everyone was singing along to Take the Long Way Home, Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, and School, to name a few.   Roger also gave us a rare treat by performing Surely.


There was so much energy and excitement.  When the show was over, people didnít want to let Roger go.   A full twenty minutes after he left the stage, there were still people yelling ROGER!!  HODGSON!!  ROGER!! HODGSON!!  He is loved so.   There are absolutely no cultural or language barriers for Roger.   At one point he told the crowd "If I could, Iíd play for you all night.Ē   Too bad we couldnít take him up on that offer.
