Tonight was our first visit back to Starlite Festival in Marbella, Spain since we first played here four years ago. What a tremendous welcome we received; not only from the fans, but also the Starlite Festival staff as well. The Starlite family took such good care of us tonight. It was wonderful to return again and see so many familiar faces of people we met when we first played this special festival. This was one of the shows that the staff all wanted to be out in the audience watching the show! Several mentioned to us afterwards that the response to Roger was great and more passionate and enthusiastic than with most artists.
Even the VIPs, who are normally not so expressive, were out of their seats throughout the show. Roger clearly lifed the spirit and hearts of everyone there. We had a perfect evening - the heat broke with the gentlest of rain that felt like a soothing balm. This beautiful quarry was lit by the lights and joy of the audience who embraced Roger and he embraced them in love.
We have one more show in Spain in Peralada on August 8 and look forward to seeing many friends there. This sold out show will be the last of this leg until the tour resumes in Germany at the end of the month.
