What a fantastic start for our summer tour we had here tonight in Weinheim, Germany. It poured so hard before the concert that we wondered if people would stay. They certainly did - nothing was going to prevent them from seeing Roger live tonight. Toward the beginning of the show, the rain started again and Roger thought this would be a good time play "It’s Raining Again.” The crowd loved it and they were a sight to see - dancing and singing with all the different colored slickers and umbrellas.
It was wonderful to be back in Weinheim at Schlosspark, this beautiful park where Roger last played in 2010 with Aaron. This time we had the whole band with us and when Roger asked his audience who among them had come to the 2010 show, many raised their hand. It was great to see many familiar faces, as well as new ones. At the end of the last encore, the crowd would not let Roger leave! They stayed and cheered so loudly that Roger came back and asked for requests. Hide in Your Shell won and that was the final song of the evening. It was a beautiful night. We will see you tomorrow in Hinwil, Switzerland and are hoping to see everyone with their friends and loved ones at one or more of the shows this year.
