Paris, France ~ September 24, 2010 ~ Ana Lopez 



September 24th - a date to remember


To go to Paris, there’s no need to look for excuses, but to be reunited with good friends and a concert by Roger, undoubtedly, is the best thing  we could do to release the Fall.


With our suitcase full of hope, and eager to enjoy the magic of Roger we boarded the plane. Despite the strike, that canceled our flight, we had the great fortune to catch another flight the same Friday 24th, to keep emotion, the flight left late in Madrid. My God, we were a bundle of nerves!!!

Linda was kind enough to invite Vidal ...

Grabbing the English when it became necessary, he started a brief speech to justify the French tour: "This is a very special tour to me because it’s the first one in France after I left Supertramp, almost 30 years now. My managers proposed me to play in Paris, but I told ...

"ROGER HODGSON, THE ETERNAL DREAMER”
By YBES GABAY
Posted on French paper LA DEPECHE
September 28th, 2010
English translation by JESUS FUENTES
 

A beautiful wind of nostalgia was blowing yesterday at the Casino Theatre Barriere in Toulouse. Roger Hodgson, former songwriter and owner of most of the songs by Supertramp, activating the memories of 1,200 fans who, of course, have never forgotten him.
 
Clearly moved by the great welcome they had kept for him, the English man was joking in French with his loyal saxophonist Aaron MacDonald, taking the time enough to relish his peculiar relationship with his audience since 40 years ago.
 
"You are going to hear this songs as they was the day I have write it”, he said with a smile. The syntax of his sentence was not too good, but his happiness seemed to be immense as the people stood on their feet several times to show him their appreciation with ovations.
