Backstage Pass from Paris, France ~ July 1, 2015 



It doesn’t get much better than this. Magical was the word I heard most from the audience about this concert. And it truly was. Roger had the audience spellbound through the whole show. It was also another glorious reunion at the Paris Olympia. The fans from the French Fan Club were in the front row and other fans from all over Europe came as well for tonight’s sold out show. The energy from the full audience built to such a crescendo of applause and joy by the end that it felt like it must be bursting out through the ceiling of the Olympia to spread through all of Paris and beyond. 

Near the end Roger asked everyone if they liked the sound - they did. He then said "It’s the 12th anniversary of my sound engineer Howard Heckers.” Many commented on the beautiful lights, too. We certainly are already looking forward to coming back to Olympia. We will see you next April 30 - May 1! 

Shakti and Linda

     Merci de tout cœur pour ces deux show, Nantes, ou j'ai eu l’immense plaisir de réentendre "Along Came Marie" et "say goodbaye" dans une belle ambiance comme savent donnaient les gens de l'ouest, que j'ai partager avec mes amis du fan Club Français. Mais la soirée de L'Olympia à dépassé toute mes attentes, toute mes espérance. Une ambiance aussi chaude que la température extérieur, sinon plus, l'auditoire en délire, une ovation à Roger comme il se doit, c'est à dire démesuré, digne d'un artiste tel que Roger. Un show de presque deux heures et demi ... avec le rappel, de nouveaux "Along Came Marie" oui je l'aime de trop cette chanson j'étais vraiment heureuse de l'écouter en live et surtout avec le nouvel arrangent de la fin, qui lui donne une dimension celtique encore plus pointu ... J'adore   mais le clou de la soirée à été de le voir à la guitare électrique, sur "Had A Dream"   j'en ai encore des frissons. Roger et vraiment un artiste unique. L'émotion de le découvrir a chaque nouveaux concert reste intact à celle du premier jour. heureuse de savoir que je retourne le voir à la fin du mois

     It was my fourth concert of Roger and it's still magic!
When I listen Roger singing, I forget all my worries, his songs are like fresh air to me.
Last night the acoustics were great and the lights were sublime.
I was so happy to hear "The awakening" on stage and see Roger play electric guitar again on "Had a dream".
I also heard two of my favorite songs "Fool's overture" and "The Meaning", it was like a dream.
I'd love to hear "Open the door" next year because I'll be there at the Olympia to see Roger and his fabulous band !

     There are some mythical places in the world, and Paris Olympia is one of them. But when mythical venue receives mythical artist, for a mythical concert, these are the times we keep in our notebooks, journals, memoirs, ears, mind, soul and heart; the whole life. Those are concerts we speak about years and years after in forums, on social networks, with friends, with music lovers, with family. Olympia's show 2015 was, Roger, one of those mythical shows. I wouldn't speak about so positive impact in mass media, just, that evening no one journalist had doubts who were the Supertramp's spirit...and this is great. I would more speak about the impact you left in every heart of the audience. The love (s) you shared was floating in the air, the love with those several faces, the love of the music, love of people, love of fans, and Universal love. Also the love of (and through) your songs, with the careful selection of the set list. I'm sure the love you have sown, will bloom in every heart of your audience.

Thank you. And thanks to your band, to me also, it was their best performance I have ever listened to. And last and not least, thank you Howard. The "round" sound at Olympia was the perfection of the perfection, the power which carresses the ears.

With Bremen, those are the shows which occupy the deepest place in my musical heart.
