Backstage Pass from Nantes, France ~ June 30, 2015 



We just left Nantes where Roger performed tonight and we’re 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 Don’t 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 Roger’s beautiful unrecorded song, The Awakening. 

La Cite, Le Centre des Congres de Nantes is a lovely venue by the river here in one of Roger’s 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 Roger’s 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! 


Cheers,
Shakti and Linda

     Dear Roger,
We saw you twice at Olymppia,but this tiime,we were sitting in the fourth row, on the left so we could see you better!! Wow...what a marvellous time!...
You sang all your songs with so much emotion -in particular Love is a Thousand Time and The Awakening : that's why the audience loves you!!

We hope to see you again at Olympia next year, and would you sing Rosie and If Everyone Was Listening?
Thank you for your kindness to the "crazy" french people.
J'espère que la chaleur de Nantes vous a aidé à guérir "the grippe"!...nos meilleures pensées pour vous et votre équipe.
Soazic et philippe
