Backstage Pass from Brasilia, Brazil ~ October 24, 2014 



Another very different show here in Brasilia. It was our third time performing at the beautiful Convention Center Ulysses Guimar„es, where Roger last performed in 2012. The crowd at tonightís sold out show was so happy to have Roger back. The highlight of the show for me was when Roger told his audience "This is the only city here in Brazil where I am performing this song" and then he started playing the first chords of "Even in the Quietest Moments.Ē The whole venue was in utter silence during this majestic performance. Roger also performed two other songs tonight that he has yet to play on his tour of Brazil - A Soapbox Opera and Donít Leave Me Now, which is very popular here in Brazil. Many people were very visibly moved.

Right after the encore of Give a Little Bit, faces broke into big smiles and voices were raised and the house exploded into the familiar soccer chant. I asked our local promoter if the audience chants for all the artists and he said it is very unusual outside of a soccer match and that it should be taken as a real honor for Roger and his band. Indeed, an honor it is. 

We have seen so many fans here in Brazil who have literally travelled from show to show. It is the pull of Rogerís music, and the man himself, who inspire people to see him again and again. Our wonderful 2014 tour of this beautiful country wraps up tomorrow with our grand finale in Belo Horizonte. Roger will be performing outdoors in a beautiful park. We hope to see you at Parque das Mangabeiras tomorrow evening! 

Join us next month in November in the US and Canada for the final shows of Rogerís 2014 World Tour! Get your tickets today and join us for magical nights of Rogerís timeless classic songs and fan favorites! 

Cheers,
Linda
