Backstage Pass ~ Paris, France ~ May 18, 2013
We arrived this afternoon in Paris from Brussels for our third of four back-to-back shows. This was our first show at L’Olympia with the band and the guys had been looking forward to. There is an ongoing love affair with Roger and his French public and he loves coming back often to perform in the classic venue where he feels right at home.
The evening was full of beautiful music, a wide range of emotions, and new lifetime memories. The audience enjoyed Aaron practicing his French when Roger invited him to speak a few words. For the finale, many umbrellas went up and danced in the air over the audience when Roger and the band broke into "It’s Raining Again” to close the show.
Hope to see many of you again tomorrow at our second show here in Paris at the L'Olympia and on Tuesday in St. Amand!

MERCI MERCI MERCI ...
Bientôt 40 ans que je suis fou de Supertramp et tout particulièrement des chansons composées par Roger. Comment ? Je ne suis pas le seul ? on est des millions ?
Je m'en moque, j'ai tellement d'émotion à chaque fois, tant de larmes coulent pendant les concerts.
J'ai fait découvrir et aimer ce groupe et cet homme à tant de personnes qui n'aimait pas ce style de musique. Hier encore, ma nouvelle femme rencontrée après mon divorce me remerciait de lui avoir fait connaître autre chose que les chansons commerciales de Supertramp.
Ecouter les chansons de Roger c'est tomber sous la magie immédiatement. Mes 2 enfants, ceux de mon amie adorent.
Hier, à l'Olympia, on fêtait notre 1er anniversaire de PACS (= presque mariage). MERCI
Thanks for sharing Linda!
I accompany you, in my heart and I am delighted that you have made happy so many people again.
My best friends Anita and Luis traveled from Brazil to see the concert tonight. It's a dream come true! A shout out to them! ROGER we LOVE YOU!
It was the first time that I saw Roger with the band and it was a wonderful concert, I love the set list for this night (lady, death and the zoo, the more I look) and the good sound. I think that it was a concert like Supertramp has done in the past. The crowd applaud a long time, singing and dancing. The musiciens of Roger play very well and the voice of Roger is always beautiful. I love all his songs that I listening every day.
I come to see him as possible when he coming back in France, in Paris town near i live.
