Backstage Pass from Rio de Janeiro ~ October 18, 2014
Vivo Rio!!!! The show tonight was as electrifying as when we played here in 2012! It’s always fun to return to a venue and see familiar things such as the band’s names on their backstage wall of fame. Before the show, Roger signed a Breakfast in America album for a 16-year-old fan who came tonight with his father and he was beaming from ear to ear. From the first song, the whole audience was singing along. A young graphic artist gifted Roger with a t-shirt with some lyrics for Sister Moonshine on it, so he did a special dedication to her and also for a special friend celebrating her birthday tomorrow. Toward the end of the show, the audience broke out in the familiar olė chant after Fool’s Overture and then Roger opened the encore with HAD A DREAM - fans love hearing him jamming on the electric guitar. What a night!!!
Universal Music sent a gigantic arrangement of fragrant tropical flowers to welcome Roger back to Rio and also to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Crime of the Century deluxe package which was just been announced this week and due out December 8. The beautiful fragrance from the flowers drifted its way around the stage the entire night. Next stop - Vitória on Tuesday. We will see you there!
