It's about to start a new tour and I am thinking of all the suitcases that are starting to fill…


I'm thinking in the fan's suitcase that after waiting for a long time, years, sometimes, is getting into his luggage the ticket,

the key to paradise, the passport to happiness ... and a lot of hopes and dreams about to come true ...


The same dreams that also is getting into his bag, the veteran fan, who has attended other concerts, because, when you attend to a concert of Roger, you need to return again and again, 

so, together with the ticket, in his luggage, he puts the food for the Soul and the desire to meet with Roger and the other fans, who, as him, know that no matter the miles they have to travel to attend a show, because the reward is always great.


But not only the fans are packing their suitcases.


The guys of the band are also making their own, 

carefully placing their instruments perfectly tuned to one side,

and to the other, the desire to return to the stage to do what they do best, 

accompany the Master with their own masterfully. 

Together, they help to pack his new fellow's suitcase with the last notes, the last rehearsal and the thousand and one stories, that soon he will live. 

So, they don't forget to include in their luggage, accomplice glances and good vibes. 


Howard, Linda, Shakti ... the whole team are packing their suitcases, feeling that everything begins again, 

that there is a long way to go, and many nerves, some technical problems, the weather and its dirty tricks ... 

but over all, a great dose of professionalism, commitment, joy, enthusiasm and desire to do a good job.


What about Roger?

 

Sure!, he is also packing his suitcase, getting ready his luggage, his guitars, loyal  mates that await the time when their Minstrel caresses their strings to get the best out of them. 

Carefully places  close to them, each piece of his soul song-shaped, puts again his heart and his love for his audience in a pocket of his suitcase, with his desire to return to give us not only a little bit, but everything. Then, he puts  in his suitcase his generous arms of  hugs  and his infinite patience, and finally, he gently placed thousand of his warm smiles.


Suitcases are closed, the curtain opens, starts a new Tour, don't miss it, it's worth!!!


Best wishes to Roger and his team at the beginning of 2012 Breakfast In America Tour

 

See you!

     What a really thoughtful peice of writing. I enjoyed seeing roger last year with his band in the UK and it was the best concerts I have seen yet. Although hes not coming to the uk this year, I shall be reading all the reviews and wishing I was there

     Have tickets for the March 7 show at Hard Rock in Hollywood ,Florida. The last time I saw him was over 35 years ago with Supertrampt at the Miami Fronton for two shows. This is the first time I believe he has played South Florida since then. I am counting down the days.

I can't remember the last time I was this excited for a concert.
