Backstage Pass ~ Buckingham, England ~ May 24, 2013

Tonight Roger returned to Stowe School in Buckingham, England, where he was a student and gave his first concert of all original songs at age 13.  Stowe rocked with the return of Roger for the 90th anniversary celebration of the school.  The show sold out earlier in the week and the demand for tickets was so great that more seats had to be added to accommodate the overflowing audience.  

Mother Nature decided to give us all kinds of weather today.  Rain, blustery winds, hail, cold...so cold that during sound check we had to have heaters brought in.   One hour before the show, the clouds gave way and the sun was shining beautifully.  As night fell, we were greeted with a brilliant full moon shining on the pond.   

Right at show time, the Headmaster came out on stage with Sarah, Duchess of York, and introduced Roger, along with talking about the School's Children in Crisis charity.   For most of the show, the crowd which consisted of parents, students, teachers, and many fans from across the globe, was on their feet - dancing, singing, and even being hoisted upon shoulders!   There was definitely a celebratory mood in the air!  Tomorrow we are off to London!   

See you at the Royal Albert Hall!
Linda
