Backstage Pass from Calw, Germany ~ July 4, 2015 



The temperature finally dropped down from the record 38 degrees from earlier in the day as we approached the concert time. It ended up begin a picture perfect night and as I walked through the crowd I met lots of friends and fans from countries all over Europe. 

The city streets were full to overflowing and many filled the windows above as well. I went up to the VIP room in one of the charming Tudor style buildings to see their view and to capture a shot. As soon as I walk into the room Roger started playing Had a Dream and all the guests immediately jumped on their feet and started dancing. I should have snapped a photo of them as well - they were all having so much fun!

Backstage Pass from Murten, Switzerland ~ July 3, 2015

Backstage Pass from Paris, France ~ July 1, 2015 



It doesnít get much better than this. Magical was the word I heard most from the audience about this concert. And it truly was. Roger had the audience spellbound through the whole show. It was also another glorious reunion at the Paris Olympia. The fans from the French Fan Club were in the front row and other fans from all over Europe came as well for tonightís sold out show. The energy from the full audience built to such a crescendo of applause and joy by the end that it felt like it must be bursting out through the ceiling of the Olympia to spread through all of Paris and beyond. 

Near the end Roger asked everyone if they liked the sound - they did. He then said "Itís the 12th anniversary of my sound engineer Howard Heckers.Ē Many commented on the beautiful lights, too. We certainly are already looking forward ...
