Backstage Pass from Alzey, Germany ~ August 30, 2014 



What a cool city Alzey is!  The surrounding area is so pretty, with green farm land and vineyards nearby.  Tonight's sold out show was at the Dacapo-Alzey Festival, celebrating its 18th year.  It is put on by city for their citizens and as marketing for the city.  What a setting! The concert was held in the castle courtyard square with Rogerís dressing room in the city court building.   Itís a cozy venue Ė an intimate little square inside the castle walls with gorgeous century-old trees overhanging.   

The crowd packed in.   They could see Roger and the band come down the stairs to the waiting area backstage and they let out a loud cheer.   The very enthusiastic and respectful fans were listening intently during the show and everyone was in great spirits.  Standing audiences are great - more engaged and awake.  It was fun to watch them from ...

Backstage Pass from Leipzig, Germany ~ August 29, 2014 



What a beautiful summer night we had tonight in Leipzig, Germany at the ParkbŁhne im Clara Zetkin Park. The grounds of this magical park setting are gorgeous and it was so nice to be at an open-air venue surrounded by trees and in the fresh air. The show started at twilight and at nighttime we were under a sky filled with stars. The audience was very appreciative of having Roger performing and showed deep appreciation for his music.

At the end of the show, the crowd refused to let Roger leave the stage. After performing Fool's Overture, Roger and his band came back on stage for his encore of Give a Little Bit and It's Raining Again. After thunderous applause that simply would not ...

Backstage Pass from Aurich, Germany ~ August 28, 2014 



Itís so wonderful to be back in Germany again with Roger and his band and audiences who have grown up listening to his songs and passing them down to their children.  As I walked into the venue here in Aurich during intermission, I saw many people that I have seen at shows throughout Europe over the years.  

I thought it was a really good show and this was confirmed by all the comments that I heard as I walked down the aisle.  Many were saying, "wow, it just keeps getting better,"  "the sound is so clear," "his voice is so strong,"  "I felt 17 again," and beyond that there were many smiles from all!   Weíre off on the tour bus to Leipzig to do it again tomorrow!
