There was a full house tonight in Aachen, Germany. It has been five years since Roger's first concert here with the Symphonic Orchestra of Aachen and what a spectacular return! The rains from the past two days stopped and the park was full of families, good friends, food, and great music. People came from literally all over the world for this show. During the intermission I met fans from Montreal, France, Switzerland, and many other countries.
The conductor, Volker Hiemeyer, was having just as much fun as Roger on stage! Roger performed many of his classics as well as several fan favorites such as Only Because of You and Babaji. At the end of the show, the audience of 5000 refused to leave! Roger started playing Breakfast in America again and he invited the whole crowd to sing along with him. What a great singalong and what a mutual love affair with Germany! A wonderful time was had by all.
Our next show will be in Hanau, Germany on Wednesday and then we head to Gibraltar where on Saturday Roger will close out his European tour for 2014. Just two more shows in Europe for this year! It has been a great tour and we have made many more new friends along the way. We thank you for your support and invite you to leave Roger a message and share some of your experiences of seeing him live in concert.
