There are a thousand things to do in Manchester. There's the URBIS Museum, The Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester Art Gallery, The Granada Studios tour (Take a walk down Coronation Street), The Manchester Eye, The New Market with foods from around the world, The Lowry Centre, The Imperial War Museum, The Gay Village, Chinatown, The posh shops of St Annes Square/Harvey Nicholls etc etc etc.
As this is one of the biggest venues on Hayley's tour, I am interested in how the ticket sales are going.
According to the Bridgewater Hall booking site, the Stalls, Choir Circle and Circle (moving away from the stage in that order) are essentially sold out but there are plenty of seats available in the large back/high Gallery.
Let's assume that the choir seats behind the stage will not be in use, and that ticket agencies aren't going to return large numbers of unsold tickets as TicketMaster are sold out. This means that 1600 seats out of 2,065 available seats have been sold to date so the hall is going to be pretty full by next week month (oops!).
Considering how low-profile Hayley has been this year (no new album in the UK for 18 months, few major TV appearances) I think this is pretty good going and Hayley's support in the UK (well Manchester ) seems to be holding up fairly well!
I've been wondering how some of the bigger venues are doing and your calculations look very promising indeed. With a month still to go, the potential 'undecided' patrons (who will possibly wait until the last minute before booking) should hopefully fill the empty seats and result in a .......
I am still awaiting receipt of my tickets from Ticketmaster.
