Belgium welcomes Roger and his band for the first show this year. Roger and Aaron performed here at Le Forum two years ago with their duo show and this time have returned with the whole band. Roger pulled out some gems for the sold out audience here tonight as he followed his opening song, Take the Long Way Home with The Meaning - a fan favorite with a stunning melody. 

He also performed Along Came Mary – which is often requested, another song from his last studio album, Open the Door. 

And the grand encore – Roger had been watching a woman having a blast during the whole show, so he pulled her on stage to join him and dance and clap as the entire audience stood up and sang along to Give a Little Bit. 

Tonight we head off on the bus to France – see you at the Archeo Jazz Festival tomorrow……

Linda

     Thank you Linda!
I am eagerly waited for this short sharing which always transfer me for a moment into the atmosphere of joy which brings each show.
You wrote about the transfer by bus which is not always easy. It is good for us to know that behind the love of Roger and the team is always hidden a sacrifice. True love is such. Is worth something only what costs something.
God bless you all!
Always with you!
maria

     Thank you Roger for all shows, but, especially, for this one. You know, even though I'm not perfect, to me the Happiness includes to see my family, my friends, or lonely people happy. I came to Liege, several hours before the show because I had an appointment, before the show with several friends from several countries. But reading Facebook's sad status of a friend Rudy, in front of new greatest challenges of his and Patricia's lives (her new transplantation surgery several years after her lung transplant; including Rudi's greatest proof of love trying to give to his wife his own kidney) , I just wanted to make them smile and honor their courage and love, and knowing the power of your songs, to bring them hope. Was enjoying this incredible beautiful show, where the pearl after pearl had fallen from the sky, what a extraordinary choice of set list (the best ever), I was secretly hoping you will play for them. And incredible arrived when Flo showed me her fingers crossed, and, just few seconds after you asked me if the message was from me.. Telling you will play for them the song you play rarely. "Babaji". I know how important this song is for you, and I'm sure your inner compass helped you to choose it. I didn't know it was the favorite song of my friends. You made me cry, and I'm not ashamed to recognise it. Seeing my friends amazed and happy, singing with you, smiling and listening, at the same time the masterful performance of that jewel, listening to you to sing it so deeply, like if you had caressed every tone of your voice velvety and so clear, voice of the highest mountains, I can't describe my unforgettable profound feeling. Thank you again. And when I think, you played amazing Along came Mary for our friend Cedric and Hide in your shell for Carole and her son, the show had still taken an other dimension of happiness. Without hesitation, to me it was the best show ever. Will never forget that transcendental parfum of the well being. MERCI Roger

And seeing the large smile of the amazing dancing girl, you made the whole audience very happy that incredible moving and fun evening in Liège.
