Backstage Pass from Marbella, Spain ~ August 6, 2015 



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. 

Cheers, 
Linda and Shakti

     Oh, thank you for beautiful sharing!
I can imagine reaction of audience...
Roger´s shows are solely because of VIP - mutually - on both sides :-)

When you mentioned that the staff all wanted to be out and see and listen to Roger I remembered - I do not know anymore where it was - when Suzi Quatro remained after their own performances and watched the whole Roger's show and said that long ago not touched her something so deeply as now ...

P.S.

When I saw the photo from sound check in hot Mallorca it reminded me the cheerful surprise for the audience on the Donau Bühne in Tulln after which Aaron with Kevin - completely dressed - jumped into the water :-)

There it was only Danube river but in Spain you have a sea...:-)
I wish that you find a little time time for relax !...


God bless!

     Seeing Roger at the Starlite Marbella was like being transported back in time! My friend and I needed no more encouragement than his "come and join us at the front" for the encore and climbed down two 7ft levels from our "best we can afford" to the VIPS! Haven't stormed the front since I was I my twenties! Great night!
