The theatre in Brisbane tonight was a standing bar type venue with a balcony overlooking the audience and stage. The vibe was high from the beginning. The crowd was already cheering before Roger came out on stage and they proceeded to sing along from the very first song and kept singing all night long.
Roger opened his second set with Child of Vision and it was definitely one of the highlights of the evening. When the song ended, everyone erupted into their local soccer chant "ollie ollie, oi oi oi and later chanted "Roger, Roger, Roger " the audience definitely found their voice tonight.
It is really cool playing in different flavors of venues all over the world. I personally loved the energy of this standing venue. People really enjoyed dancing and moving during the concert. Tomorrow Roger and his band will be performing at the Bluesfest in Byron Bay one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Cant wait!
