Pittsburgh, March 13 Hayley sang 3 songs solo 1. Danny Boy, a capella (with chorus) 2. Scarborough Fair in the gold dress!(Orla accompanied with Harp) 3. Dulamon Hayley's harmonies on the group songs are beautiful, I think her confidence with her voice enhances everyone's performance. No cameras, no meet and greet, I did say Hello at the stage door, but their manager/wrangler won't let Hayley sign anything. I can't say anymore about this show, I hope March 20 in NYC goes O.K........TimJ
to love singing is to live for what cannot be suppressed
Thanks for the report from Pittsburgh. It is such a shame that Hayley wasn't allowed to spend a few minutes with her fans because we know this is something that she likes to do. She has said it helps to round off the evening for her.
I am glad you had a great time, but like Roger, I am disappointed that Hayley is not allowed to do what Hayley clearly loves doing, and thats meeting her supporters and winding down with them after the show.
Another review from the same Pittsburgh concert found on the CW Forum :
1. The show was outstanding! (of course!) 2. Hayley sounded a bit different. She was awesome as always, just sounded different. I first thought maybe its just the live vs recorded thing, but the others all sounded as expected. Has anyone else noticed this? Maybe its just me. 3. Danny Boy was awesome! I was almost in a trance. The lady sitting next to me was so moved that she was sort of crying. 4. For some reason, the audience wasn't clapping during songs as one might expect. The one drummer tried to encourage people to do so, but it remained sort of quiet until midway through the second half of the show. Are others in other cities as quiet? 5. The drummers should get a big pat on the back. At one point I thought to myself "hey those drummers are pretty good" and then the lady sitting next to me turns to me and says "you know those percussion people are awesome" Great minds think alike I guess! 6. The only problem seemed to occur on Last Rose of Summer. Chloe sang Hayley's part, and Hayley sang Meav's. Does anyone know why they do this? Why doesn't Hayley just sing hers and Chloe sing Meav's? But anyway, something just didn't work on this one song. Did anyone else notice this? 7. At the end did I hear Mairead say "You've been a great audience, thanks for coming"? Very cute! 8. My seat was pretty far away from the stage. I didn't see as much as I would have liked, except for a lot of blonde hair flying about at times. I would encourage anyone to spend the extra money to get as close as you can. Where does Mairead get all that energy?
