Toulon, France ~ July 27, 2010 ~ Linda Gianotti 



What a setting.  Roger’s show at the Festival Voix du Gaou (near Toulon) took place on an island surrounded by the most beautiful water that is many glorious shades of blue.   Under a beautiful star filled sky with a full moon, Roger came out on stage to the roar of applause from the near-capacity crowd.    Everyone was on their feet and so very eager to hear the man who gave us eternal classics that we have loved for decades.    Everyone was singing along to Take the Long Way Home, Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, and School, to name a few.   Roger also gave us a rare treat by performing Surely.


There was so much energy and excitement.  When the show was over, people didn’t want to let Roger go.   A full twenty minutes after he left the stage, there were still people yelling ROGER!!  HODGSON!!  ROGER!! HODGSON!!  He is loved ...

Weinheim, Germany ~ July 24, 2010 ~ Linda Tyler 



It’s been a rough travel summer and we arrived late to sound check.   A big thank you to Jessica for having everything so organized.    As soon as she heard the first three notes come over the PA, she said,  "I am happy to be hearing the music again. My heart is opening…I get goose bumps…”  And that is about how the other 3000 people felt last night as they crowded the stage drinking in Roger’s Classic Hits and solo songs. 

 

He dedicated "Say Goodbye,” from his album, Open the Door, to Ingrid and Stefan, who were sitting on the grass right in front to the stage.  I watched them as they sang along deeply touched by the message conveyed by the song.

 

When Roger was walking back to his dressing room during the intermission he met a young girl who told him she had bought tickets for her dad to come for to his show for his ...

Hemer, Germany ~ July 23, 2010 ~ Linda Tyler 



Someone asked me, ‘How did he stop the rain?”   It turned out to be a picture perfect night for Roger’s performance at the Landesgartenschau show in Hemer.  Suzi Quatro opened the evening as people huddled under their umbrellas and then the rain stopped just before Roger walked on stage.

 

Suzi stood captivated by the side of the stage and watched Roger’s performance and later told him he was "touched by the angels.”  She said, "You grab me here, right here (in her heart). I have been in the business a very long time and there are very few that have touched me like this.” She and her band stayed for the whole show and were visibly affected.

 

This concert had a particular quality- deeply touching. People weren't as wildly clapping and celebrating, it was like they were stunned by the beauty of it.  They had no words. ...
