We just left Nantes where Roger performed tonight and weíre on the bus to Paris. The show was fantastic. Many standing ovations and such a beautiful connection between Roger and the audience. Roger not only played most of his biggest hits but also fan favorites such as Donít Leave Me Now and A Soapbox Opera. He also played four songs from Open the Door, his last studio album which he recorded in Nantes - Along Came Mary, Death and a Zoo, Love is a Thousand Times, and Say Goodbye. Another special surprise tonight was a performance of Rogerís beautiful unrecorded song, The Awakening.
La Cite, Le Centre des Congres de Nantes is a lovely venue by the river here in one of Rogerís favorite cities. The sound was great and the lights were beautiful. All in all a magical evening, capped with a fond farewell from the fans waiting outside to see Roger off on the bus to Paris!
We will see you tomorrow, July 1, at Olympia Although this show is sold out, tickets are still available for Rogerís shows in Paris at Olympia next spring on April 30 and May 1. Also, be sure to join us in France again this summer on August 1 in Carcassonne. We will see many of you again tomorrow night!
