Very detailed and excellent reports as usual Grant. See you (and Hayley !) in Bournemouth next Wednesday. At the moment it's mild and dry - hope it stays that way ! (Ooh I've just realised I've clocked up 500 posts ! Not bad for someone who doesn't have a computer !!)
I hope though that her apology at the start, increasing the number of songs, Hayley performed, the reduction of Raven's slot and the addition of Alexei was not a response to a certain out of order criticism of the Bridgewater Hall concert. But I fear it might have been.
Not at all Martin!
Both at Llandudno and Cardiff it was prompted by a member of the audience. The increased number of songs was down to the addition of the duet with Alexei and the 'one off' additional Japanese encore. Adding a guest in the shape of Alexei would not have answered the Manchester critic who wanted more Hayley.
The unpleasant episode after Bridgewater Hall has had enough of an airing now and should be put behind us and consigned to the recycle bin!
Best wishes Grant
Indeed, least said soonest mended although it does prove that Hayley reads her official forum, even if on this occasion we wished she hadn't !
"My love is like a red, red rose that's newly sprung in June, My love is like a melody that's sweetly played in tune." (Robert Burns).
I don't think she reads the official forum, because she would have had to re-register. If she's not registered, she can't read posts. Somehow, I doubt she's taken the time to re-register. It was a pain that they did that, and we seemed to have lost a lot of the original people on the old one.
Anyway, the negative post about Bridgewater was deleted there, too, thankfully.
