Alan - hope you're well mate!

You certainly have a great point there, but I don't think he means performance or gig related boredom.  I think he's talking about the solitude that is the nature of hotel rooms on the road; he'll be making his own kind of music everywhere he goes, you can be certain of that!
I think he WOULD pack it in if he was bored with the playing - regardless of what Roger wants, as an artist, he's got his pride and will do what he believes is right for him.

Well gee, Pete, don't hurt yourself. If touring's so fucking boring 
that only Rachel can prevent you from dozing off, I'd kind of rather 
you just pack it in. I like to at least imagine that you're getting 
as much -- if not more -- out of a performance as I am.
