Buckingham, England ~ May 24, 2013 ~ Reflection by Marie and Tony Coyne
The young people at Stowe School got to experience "real” music tonight and loved every minute of it! From the first moment Roger walked on stage they were on their feet and screaming for more. Much to the surprise of their parents! It was a fantastic multi-generational adventure! Almost everyone in the house was on their feet cheering, dancing and singing the words to every song and then screaming for more. The place was rocking!
The hit of the night was Breakfast in America. That song connected so much with the crowd, Roger sang it twice!!!! The audience at Stowe were in fine voice. You couldn’t hear Roger sing on some of his songs; he was drowned out by the crowd. People of all generations rushed the stage…they were chanting Roger, Roger, Roger…
One young girl was up on the shoulders of a friend, so into the music. Then, all of a sudden, she was up on stage, giving Roger a hug…for all of us!
I don’t think there has been a concert like it. Roger explained how he had his old school to thank for so much inspiration for his songs…he then urged the current students to be dreamers….
