Backstage Pass from Madrid, Spain ~ June 5, 2014
What a rockin show - a real love fest! The sold out Madrid standing audience at Sala La Riviera Madrid welcomed Roger with open arms tonight. He started his set with "Take the Long Way Home” and the audience responded chanting, Roger…Roger…Roger…Roger – this ensued off and on multiple times during the evening as did the renown soccer chant – Olé, Olé, Olé!
Roger treated his audience to the rarely performed "Love is a Thousand Times." The faces in the crowd were etched with emotion. The evening was electric from beginning to end - the audience sang, clapped, whistled, and danced all night long. Roger captured the heart of the audience even deeper than he had before. Roger was noticeably touched and commented that it has been too long since he was here in Madrid! Multiple generations were represented. There were young teens, parents, and grandparents.
It’s amazing how many people I heard say that they were coming to all three shows this week. See you tomorrow in San Sebastien and on Saturday in Andorra.
