Backstage Pass from Milwaukee, WI ~ May 2, 2014 



As with last night, Roger's performance of his unrecorded "The Awakening" touched people very deeply. It is a song about forgiving oneself. Another highlight of our residency in Milwaukee has been the nightly performance of "Death and a Zoo" which poses the question, if you were a wild animal and were captured, would you rather face life in a cage or death. People really cut loose on "Child of Vision" and during "Give a Little Bit," the audience stood up and sang together, as one. 

Tonight someone told us that Roger's smile is infectious and that the energy from the stage and in the room, plus memories of Roger's songs, made them feel so very young again. As one fan said "It was like it was 30 years ago and when we were all a bit less grey." Many people have come to all three shows and are coming again tomorrow night. This confirms that once you see Roger in concert, you can't get enough! It's addicting! See you tomorrow for the forth consecutive sold out show!

     In everyone's life there comes a moment of "awakening". When we matured to the point when we are able to look back into our past which we often messed up by our own mistakes and falls, on which we would most like to forget, or erased them from our life.
Forgive yourself it means to accept yourself in the light of grace that flooded our life path and illuminates the real truth about us. If we are able to do it, then really comes a feeling as if the walls fall down and we are freed from ourselves we are able begin to "rewrite" our story.

...All you know
all must go...

Otherwise it does not work. Only with humility bounce off the shore of our old opinions and views, and confess our weakness.
Awakening means to me a new day, a new different perspective and a new chance to rewrite my story. Until I live and breathe, it is always possible. Therefore this beautiful song fills me always by the great optimism and hope.

     Roger added a few tweaks to this show that meant so much to me. I first heard Supertramp with my friend Brian back in the early 70's. After listening to the Beatles etc Brian turned up my music array playing his brothers albums when I visited him often. His brother played in a local band. I was now listening to Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Moody Blues, and Pink Floyd. Then I heard a whistle to the beginning of a new album his brother bought. Crisis what Crisis. The flow of the entire album melded at the end with Two of Us explaining how we can overcome all together became so meaningful to me then and forever. I lost my friend after searching for him never seeing him alive again after a twenty year search. Rodger had the crowd whistle the beginning of Crisis performing Easy Does It and continuing on with Sister Moon Shine. The memories of my friend internally visualized were more moving than one can imagine. He later added Two of Us; a tribute to my wife and all the other couples among us. I was immensely humbled. Supertramp will always be close to my side and thanks to Rodger I am able to pull out those important memories that have completed fantastic parts of my life. Thanks Rodger for the fine trip once again!!! Come back Soon.
