Hi all! I just had to comment because I was sooo surprised to see one of my comments from the chicago thread about Hayley that I had posted for the Il Divo fans, on this forum!! HAHA what a shock! But yea for real, I enjoyed her alot and was introduced to another great artist. However, I do understand those two negative comments. We really were there for the BOYS! And, I paid a LOT of money for my seats and wasn't expecting such a loooong "intro show"....but it was still such a great experiance and good luck to Hayley as she continues to tour! How could she not enjoy traveling with 4 such amazing gentlemen?! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif Even though I know she's not in the Australia leg of the tour
We now have TWO videos of Hayley opening for Il Divo! There is a link to one below, and the other one is here in the Sheffield thread.
This compilation of short extracts from various Hayley songs in Chicago is thanks to Wendy (*wendy*) in the Il Divo forum and thanks also to Robert S. for bringing it to my attention.
I will initially post Wendy's direct Rapidshare link but if anyone has problems accessing Rapidshare or working out how to use it, let me know and I will seek permission to make it available in my personal webspace in a day or two's time; possibly Simon will too, on the HWI website.
Hayley's performance was superb. I also liked the piano and guitar, but was the drummer really necessary? He sounded as though he was from a rock band, and he didn't suit Hayley's style of music at all!
I don't think the drummer fit at all. Now I am thinking it was a device so Hayley couldn't hear all the people coming in late (even though she might have been able to see them). Or, or I don't know what else. Funnily enough I don't remember there being a drummer in Minneaplis though there probably was one. Still a good video though! Oh yes, and she sang 'From A Distance.' One I hadn't heard until she sang it and now I've heard other versions, I must say I like hers the best. =)
