Grrr...lucky you, Richard! I just booked a room in a B&B near Shepherds Bush Empire (Grantly Hotel - no, it's not a joke, Grant! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif). Now, I only need the most important thing...my concert ticket!
There should be little doubt about Hayley's presence at the Shepherds Bush Empire on 31st August, but one thing is certain. The other girls from Celtic Woman will NOT be there, unless they're in the audience. It's Hayley's own concert!i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
Although I'm not keen on the venue, I'll definitely be going to see Hayley, and Stephany etc.
Not keen on the venue? How is that, Richard - do you mean it's too big? Or the sound doesn't come out neatly enough? I'm just curious as it will be my first Hayley concert and I obviously want it to be perfect
Hello everyone, Just came back from Travelagency, in option..Flight and hotel to London from 29 august,till 2 september....and my husband is going with me. I hope the tickets will be soon available...because i have to confirm in five days.Greetzz JOYCE.
Hi Joyce! I also have my train tickets and accomodation in option so I seriously hope the concert tickets will be available soon because I have to confirm everything at the end of the week. According to Roger, Bedlam Management confirmed the event so I don't see why the concert won't happen! I look forward to meeting you and your husband.
Don't let me put you off. I went to a jazz concert there about two years ago and they took all the seats out to make room for dancing, so I had to stand for over two hours. Hopefully things will be very different for Hayley's concert, and I'm expecting to have a completely different opinion afterwards! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
Hi Stephany.. that's the same for me.... but beware...last year i booked everything for Cologne...and in the last week it was cancelled. But a 4 day stay in London would be great too....but will be better to see Hayley singing.I hope tickets will be soon available. Maybe someone can look for GROUPtickets, or something like that.Greetz JOYCE.
I've not been to the Shepherds Bush venue myself and so I can't really comment properly, but I know people that have. I get the impression that its quite an old and large venue, not very intimate shall we say. I'm sure Richard will fill us in on his views when he next logs in and I certainly don't want to put you off.
I can fully imagine that you want your first Hayley concert to be special but, I'm sure that the venue won't spoil anything, as speaking personally, once Hayley is performing I totally forget where I am in anycase And of course, you will be surrounded by your fellow HWI members to welcome you
Lots of love Mark
Edit - Richard has already posted a reassuring reply
Thanks for the information but you won't pull me out that easily! After reading Richard's post, I was (a little) worried and searched for pictures of the venue. You probably "experienced" the first one...let's hope they will not remove the seats for Hayley! Mark, your answer was really reassuring as well. Let me know when you have your seats - it will be great to have full rows of HWI members and I will feel very secure, haha.
Joyce, I hope there won't be any cancellation this time! See you there... Stephany
Absolutely correct, Joyce. Mark - will you come with your daughter & wife? Sophie looked fabulous at Telford and I also look forward to meeting her as she seems very nice. Are you actually dragging her or is she pleased to come and see Hayley?
I'm not sure at this stage if Sophie will want to come with me. I certainly don't have to "drag" her along to see Hayley, she loves her voice and music. However, I wouldn't say she was a dedicated fan (like me) and so she will come to the odd performance if it fits, in terms of travelling, school and her other activities i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif.
Apart from this, I guess my family has to listen to me talking about Hayley quite a lot and I think they are suffering "Hayley overload" i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif Particularly at the moment, as I've been to a number of concerts in a short space of time !!
I'm sure you will meet Sophie at a concert at some point though
