Thanks for the tour info Stephany. Drew, you make a good point about Hayley's schedule. I'm wondering whether she will show up at Bournemouth on Friday 28 Sept bearing in mind she has to be in France next day when the All Blacks are playing Romania at 1pm. There are no late night flights out of Bournemouth Airport to Toulouse so even if she did come here, she'd be travelling back to London that night and then getting a flight on Saturday morning. It could be done, but whether she would want to is another matter. I think French time is an hour ahead of us (Stephany will confirm that !) so it would be very tight to get back for the Albert Hall from the south of France. I'm off to the box office now to see if they know anything (doubtful) but if I find out anything I'll let you know. Likewise if any of you lucky people going to Telford at the weekend can find out from Bedlam Management, the rest of us out in the shires would be very grateful !! Fingers crossed !

Absolutely, Jeff. It would be tight for her to make it to London unless she skips the match in Toulouse (do the singing, and leave afterwards!). But Toulouse-London is only a 50 minutes flight so it could be possible.
Celtic Woman will also do a tour in October 2007 in several countries on Continental Europe. If Hayley wants to do it, her participation to this leg of the tour would also depend on the All Black's results at the Rugby World Cup.
Hypothesis 1 : New Zealand is ranked 1st in Pool D. October 6, 2007 : Cardiff (9PM) QF October 13, 2007 : Paris Saint Denis (9PM) SF
Hypothesis 2 : New Zealand is ranked 2nd in Pool D. October 7, 2007 : Paris Saint Denis (3PM) QF October 14, 2007 : Paris Saint Denis (9PM) SF
If they loose their semi-final : Game for Bronse October 19, 2007 : Paris Parc des Princes (9PM)
If they win their semi-final : Final October 20, 2007 : Paris Saint Denis (9PM)
Most of the matches are in Paris anyway so it shouldn't be too difficult to take the plane in case of a CW concert elsewhere.
Unfortunately no, Thomas. I wanted tickets for France's matches but errr...they were gone very quickly. Same for NZ and Hayley wasn't performing in Paris anyway. That's why I hope she will part of this CW European tour !!
I received the following information within an e-mail from gigsandtours.com:

I don't know where they got the HW info. I note that not all venues are listed. We wait until 09:30.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Manchester & London, here I come!!!
Drew, you just made my day (week)!!! THANK YOU!! My first Hayley (CW) concert will be September 22.
The dream come true!!! OK, another one : AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
Edit : thank you again, Drew...I'm still floating!! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif I'm going to book my tickets for Manchester & London tomorrow morning. Best seats available, of course!! I also can't wait for the London show because that will be probably the first time I meet other HWI members. WOW!!
Point taken, Drew *whispering as a little Comet* Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee !!!
Edit : they don't talk about the shows BEFORE Manchester so I suppose Meav will be with the girls during the first leg of the UK tour (Liverpool, Llandudno, Gateshead , Glasgow)?
Double Edit : we can buy the tickets online for Manchester NOW!! But they say Meav will be there, not Hayley. Humm... Link : Bridgewater Hall Manchester
Saturday 22 September 2007 7.30pm Celtic Woman
Celtic Woman features the very special talents of four Irish female vocalists and a very exciting fiddle player. The four women vocalists, Chloe, Lisa, Méav and Orla and fiddle player Mairead with Composer & Musical Director, David Downes, have created a wonderful musical experience. Celtic Woman portrays the unique voices and styles of each of the girls as soloists as well as fantastic ensemble numbers.
Although tickets are on sale, this performance of Celtic Woman is currently not available online. Please contact the Box Office at 0161 907 9000 to purchase tickets.
Drew is quite right to advise that we await confirmation from Bedlam Management. I was told weeks ago that they were holding discussion with the CW management team so it is a possibility that Hayley will be involved but we don't know for sure.
I will let you know as soon as confirmation is received.
Of course, if Hayley is involved, this thread will disappear from its present position and emerge phoenix-like on the "Celtic Woman WITH Hayley" board. That might give you a clue before you even read the contents!
Thank you Roger, you have no idea how thrilled I am. I contacted the Programming Manager of Bridgewater Hall in Manchester and she told me she would contact the Celtic Woman Management to clear that up. She promised to get back to me as soon as possible.
