Cap Roig, Spain 1.8.2011
My trip to Cap Roig was really adventurous this time, since I arrived at noon on the day of the concert, and the next morning I had to be back in London.
But it was a wonderful, rich day , and it was worth those nine hours of waiting at the airport for return flight.
I enjoyed meeting with Ana, "Rose" of Tarragona ...
It put us together our love to Roger and his music. She helped me pick up my ticket and together with hers two girlfriends we went to the soundcheck.
There welcomed us Linda, warmly as it only she know ...
Pleasant surprise for me was meeting with Anita and Markus from Germany, who are at almost at every Roger´s show and with whom I survived a very nice moments in Brussels. After hearty welcome greeted us from the stage Roger, with his typical kind smile and hearty - "Hello!"
Contentment, which I see always between Roger and the band members passed on to me very quickly.
After the sound check , my friends took me to outing the beautiful scenery of Costa Brava and the Jardin de Cap Roig, full of colorful flowers.
Slowly it came together, people everywhere were cheerful and companionable.
At the beginning Roger recall the last year, when the concert was canceled for heavy rain. He said that the song It's Raining Again he will sing ,for sure , at the end ...
Set list was very rich again.
Take the Long Way Home - this song always reminds me that we are all on the way home ...
School - this is beginning of this our journey
In Jeopardy - we all sometimes find ourselves in it
Lady - a nice surprise, the song perfectly performed
Easy Does It - with our " help" - common whistling
Sister Moonshine -
Breakfast in America - right way kicked off the audience
I wish I was in London ... this song I sung during endless waiting at the airport , so honestly than never before
C'est Le Bon - with slightly altered text
A Soapbox Opera
The Logical Song
And then - for me the top of each concert - Lord Is It Mine - Wow!
That night Roger dedicated the song to me personally and I thank him from whole my heart again!
Child of Vision - song with beautiful piano part
Across the Universe - the remembrance at John Lennon and the Beatles who have influenced Roger's music and way of life
Know Who You Are - with really true "when you smile we can see the sun"
Do not Leave Me Now - show slowly drew to a close
Dreamer - the right atmosphere in the audience
Fool's Overture - truly a masterpiece, in which listening I forget breathing
Two of Us - it is a challenge and encouragement
Give a Little Bit - this is the role and mission of each of us
It's Raining Again - yes, now it could already ...
"And now everyone stand up " said Roger ...and it really thundered then, but only with common singing and clapping and dancing...
That's why we're here - says Roger.
And then he show his own example.
I never forget the moment when after concert in darkness a car stopped next to me, Roger leaned from windows with question :
"What are you waiting for , Maria?"
- Waiting for taxi - I said.
"And where are you going?"
- To Girona.
"Oh, you still have a pretty long way to go" ...
After a short conversation with the driver says, "Unfortunately, we can not take you, because we go the other direction." ..
Sent a kiss goodbye, waved with cordial "God bless you!" ...
So looks like Roger´s " Give a little bit" in practice.
Perhaps we could also have " a little bit" more interest for each other.
Have no fear take somebody´s hand even when we are extremely tired and haven´t much time.
... will be so surprised ...
Thank you for this strong experience and marvellous evening
God bless you!
