Backstage Pass from Rama, Ontario, Canada ~ November 15, 2014 



Tonight here in Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada is a night to celebrate!  It’s the celebration of our second show here this weekend with Roger’s band, an orchestra, and choir.  It’s the celebration of our 12th year year here at this wonderful venue.  It’s the celebration of the end of our 2014 touring year. It’s the celebration of friends gathering together from all over the world… 

Overall, it was an electrifying performance - not only because of the orchestra and choir, but Roger playing his electric guitar rocked the house!  This was contrasted later in the show when Roger mesmerized the audience while standing totally alone with his guitar on stage singing a song written while out in nature – Even in the Quietest Moments.  

Only Because of You with the orchestra and choir was phenomenal and when Rique Franks sings her solo, it’s almost an angelic experience. Babaji with the choir belting out the chorous was another very powerful moment. 

The set was a great blend of songs that Roger had recorded with Supertramp and his later solo work.  One of the highlights for many was Death and a Zoo from his Open the Door album, which asks the question, if you were an animal in the wild that was captured, would you prefer death or life in a zoo?  

If you’ve seen Roger in concert this year we’d love to hear from you. Please leave your comments on the TicketMaster site so others going there to decide if they want to come see Roger Hodgson in concert will get a picture of what they can expect!  Roger’s artist page on Ticketmaster may be found here - http://bit.ly/1xjm60q. Toward the bottom of the page is a "write a review” section.   For those outside the US, please post in your native language on your local Ticketmaster site.

We are in much gratitude for a wonderfully successful touring year and we look forward to kicking off Roger's 2015 Tour in January with select dates in Belgium, Switzerland, and Germany.

Cheers,
Linda
