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! 

Shakti and Linda

     Wow! What an unforgettable evening it was!
Roger´s voice sounds still better and better, and this is despite the busy schedule!

Just imagine - in one week he sang in Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Hungary!...
To handle it all, you need really good team, and special God´s help and blessing.
I think that Roger has both.

The set list was really full of treasures of his creation, and magnificent historical square of Veszprém was really appropriate for his music that resonated there so beautifully!
The audience listened at first in quietly, gradually was to see "wave motion", then hands raised above heads but when sounded the first notes of Dreamer, the whole audience stood on their feet, and clapped, danced and sang along till to end.
After three songs of encore followed long standing ovation.
Roger greeted and thanked in the Hungarian language, with his typical gentle humor he won the hearts of Hungarian audience and promised that he certainly wants to come back.
We looking forward!
