What a truly wonderful couple of days we have had here in Veszprém, Hungary. This was the 12th year of VeszprémFest and Roger’s sold out show tonight was the talk of the surrounding area for days, if not weeks. This is our first visit here to this beautiful country and from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty and given the "red carpet” treatment. Roger’s dressing room was in the Archbishop’s residence, also known as the Veszprém Palace, and the stage was literally right in front of the steps leading up to the magnificent 13th century residence.
Many people here tonight told us they have been waiting years to see Roger in concert. The Festival Director introduced Roger and the crowd greeted him with thundering applause. The courtyard and square were filled with music. The show was very, very special for the people of Hungary and what a night it was! Lights from the stage reflected off the buildings in beautiful patterns and the show ended with everyone on their feet - dancing, singing, and clapping. We certainly hope to return to Hungary. Next stop, Norway!
