Roger at WGT Festival tonight

Roger O'Donnell, mega-goth that he is : ), plays the Wave Gotik Treffen festival in Leipzig, Germany tonight at 6pm in the Central Theater.

From Roger on Twitter: "Best show of my solo career tonight in Leipzig incredible venue amazing audience. Finally I played like I know I can Danke!"

Update: Here's an interview (English translation here) Roger did while at the festival. (Thanks Schneeflocke)

And a bit of clarification from Roger: "Well if you can make any sense of that you are a better man than I! It wasnt an interview it was a conversation but his pass did say PRESS so I should have known better... and nobody fell asleep. Im not sure how a secret album would work? and no its nonsense!"

Update 2: Some photos from the show.

'Reflections' thoughts from Lol & Roger

From Lol on Facebook: "Finally jet lag free! Just beginning to process the extraordinary events of the last few weeks. A wonderful and emotionally uplifting experience for me. Life is a beautiful journey and as Joe Strummer said "the future is unwritten "

Roger's reply: "It was a privilege and a joy to be a part of this experience with you Lol.. To hear the old stories, relive some old memories and most of all just enjoy the moment. Heres to writing some future together again..." (Thanks Carnage Visors)

More incredible video from Fuji. You know I had to post this one on the page. For me, the happiest Cure moment in at least 6 years. Thank you for capturing it, Fuji! And thank you to Robert for asking, and to Roger for saying yes. : )
