Oh.....yes Grant......... Good idea, i didn't think about that............ was thinking about a departure from Dublin........ Well i take a look what is possible!!! Greetz JOYCE.
Hi Paddy, I already have a Special Asian edition, with the vocalese Pokarekare Ana, so it must be the one with extra cardsleeve, as i saw on the picture!!
Changing, my flight didn't succeed so far, i'm thinking about to take it as it comes..............what means.......an early wake up, to go back to Belfast International airport. Most important for me is to see Hayley in concert!!!! :DGreetz JOYCE.
It seems your CD will be worth waiting for so.
I checked flights from Belfast to Amsterdam for 28th April.
It seems that Aer Lingus has cancelled all the 17.20 flights to Amsterdam.
The good news is that EasyJet has a flight on that day to Amsterdam at 18.55 pm.
and seats are available for approx €36 (one way). Go on. Sell an extra orchid?

... When has a Hayley concert ever been not suitable for under 12s?
No offense to any young teens, but I think they're right to discourage people who don't relate to this type of music from attending. Most 12 year olds I've met want nothing but rap, rock and bubble gum music. They don't sit still for Hayley's style. Her main demographic appeal is to whom? -- mature grownups who can fully appreciate her delicate magic. There may be one or two kids out of a hundred who'll behave beautifully at a Hayley concert, but they'll be welcome as they always are, no matter what.

... I am also somewhat bemused by this age restriction. Having attended numerous concerts for many different styles of music, I don't think I have EVER seen this stated before. ...
I doubt that this is really a restriction, just a recommendation not to bring the kiddies. I see no harm in requesting a mature audience for this sort of music. Do you really want noisy children running amok during "Let Me Lie" or "Danny Boy"? I don't.
Glad to hear that you can make this one, I am staying at the Premier Inn Belfast City Centre.
I was beginning to think that no one else was coming over from the mainland.
HI Joyce and Karsten,
Just to remind you that as Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom the currency is Sterling and not Euros. UK coinage is used although Northern Irish Banks issue their own notes similar to Scottish Banks.
I am going to my first Hayley concerts in Derry and Belfast. Actually, I have never been to any concert before, so this will be my first ever concert experience.
You all will probably think I am crazy, but I have to admit that I don't listen to music (any music). Its not that I dislike music. I just never turn on the radio in the car or listen to anything at home or work. I don't mind if others are playing music, but I somehow automatically tune it out so that I don't really even hear it playing.
The only reason that I discovered Hayley was because I was channel surfing on the TV and happened to be flipping past PBS just as Hayley was singing Lascia Ch'io Pianga for the Celtic Woman concert at Slane Castle. The timing of it was just a fluke thing, but her voice made me stop and listen. So, I started using Hayley's music to help me stay relaxed during my 2 hour commute to work (that's 2 hours each way) in heavy traffic. It has really helped keep me calm and not get road rage that is so easy to get in that kind of traffic.
It just so happens that I am vacationing in Ireland at the end of April. I didn't even know that Hayley had any concerts there when I planned my trip. But, once I heard that she was going to perform while I am there, I decided that I may as well take in a concert. Then, I decided that two is better than one, so I may as well take in two as long as I was there (Derry and Belfast).
However, I need help! Since these will be my first concerts ever, I am ignorant as to proper etiquette. What is proper attire to wear? Are formal clothes required since this in an indoor concert hall? Or, are jeans or khakis acceptable? Are we allowed to take pictures or video during the concert? Any tips you can give me to help me would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Maxpower, Welcome to the best Hayley Forum in the world. Formal wear is not essential but I suppose neat dress would be acceptable.
Rules on cameras vary from venue to venue, some just say NO FLASH photography as it distracts the performers. Some say NO PHOTOGRAPHY and they mean it and will confiscate your camera and return it to you after the concert.
In general the HWI members try to go without flash and the auto focus beam which is also distracting to the performers.
So we may see you in Derry and Belfast.
