To show she's a all-round entertainer, Hayley managed to throw in some comedy too. Firstly, giving a yelp when her heel got caught in a crack on the stage.Secondly, having to stop playing 'River' on the keyboards to take her high heels off.
Hayley, in future, wear sensible shoes!
A thousand thanks to Karsten, Paddy, Andy & family and Dazza for saving me a third row seat. HWI members looking out for each other.
Ha, ha -- that sounds funny! I'm not surprised that Hayley was having trouble playing in those heels -- they're not just ordinary stilletos -- they're platform stilletos! Perhaps for the next concerts Hayley will just place them beside the piano before she starts playing. :rollin
I remember at Peterborough Hayley commented that maybe playing keyboard in high heels wasn't such a good idea! Seems she was right!
Best wishes Grant
Yes I remember she had problems at Southampton a couple of years ago. I was in the front row and thought she had twisted her ankle but she was OK. Maybe she likes to make herself look taller or maybe like Kristyn Murphy we will soon see another barefoot soprano !!

Well, I was there early enough for Hayley's arrival and this time she was the only passenger. The other artists obviously had made other arrangements. The weather was dry but cold and after a short 'Hallo' Hayley was on the way to her room.
Soon after her arrival the sound check began, very relaxed (at least I thought this).
The Coventry Carol was rehearsed twice again as in Ripon and again the possibility to attend the sound check was simply great.
The time spun away and after a short walk through the centre of Manchester it was time to start the queue joined by Paddy and soon by Dazza as well Andy with his family. Getting our seats in the third row we all had an excellent view.
