Backstage Pass from New Bedford, MA - October 20, 2013 


php/large.jpg

What a setting tonight for Roger's show in New Bedford, MA! The historical Zeiterion Theatre, built in 1923, has gone through many phases over the decades from being a vaudeville venue to a silent movie house for many years. At one point, the theatre was almost torn down to make way for a parking lot and the local historical society stepped in brought life back to this magnificent theatre. The movie screens were removed to reveal the most beautiful hand painted murals and ornate artwork.

Veteran broadcaster, Phil Paleologos, from WBSM, introduced Roger tonight and set the tone for a relaxing, intimate evening. Phil spoke of Roger's life-altering 1987 accident where he shattered both his wrists and was told by doctors that he would never play instruments again. Through shear determination, physical therapy, and prayer, Roger willed himself to make a full recovery and did so within 18 months. Phil expressed that this ...

Backstage Pass ~ Montreal, QC, Canada ~ October 18, 2013 



MONTREAL!!! Another packed house to the brim - not one empty seat at Place des Arts! Roger was in good humor and so was the audience. Gorgeous lights and fantastic sound. The hit song of the night, as many nights on Roger’s Breakfast in America Tour, was Death and a Zoo from Roger’s 2000 European release, Open the Door.

There were several standing ovations, and as with last night, it was quite clear that the love affair between Roger and the people of Quebec is mutual.

Backstage Pass ~ Montreal, QC, Canada ~ October 17, 2013 



What a night – Montreal has not lost any of their love for Roger. Terry DiMonte – early morning host from CHOM Radio, introduced him tonight and the whole room rose to their feet as Roger and his band took the stage. It was an emotional night - Roger and his band were in fine form and did not miss a beat. 

One of the highlights was the magical moment when Roger stood solo on stage and performed Even in the Quietest Moments (one of my personal favorites). What this video of Roger performing this favorite of many at a show in Switzerland - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMVBCE468Cc.

There were many standing ovations throughout the evening as the love affair between Roger and Montreal was reignited. 

One person who has been to all of his shows in Montreal said that this was the best one ever – a comment we often hear. Many plan to return tomorrow ...
