If Hayley makes it to the Manchester concert on the 17th seat A16 will be vacant. If anyone can use this front row center seat let me know. I was at Llandudno and the concert was canceled. Then I received a call from Birmingham that the concert was also canceled due to Hayley's illness. I was disappointed. At that time they were unsure if Hayley's condition and so I flew home to the U S. I was disappointed ; but more sad that Hayley was ill than disappointed for myself. If she appears in Manchester and someone could use the seat let me know and I will call the Manchester box office and have it reissued in your name.
There's quite a story behind the ticket for seat "A16"!!! It was originally my ticket, but unfortunately I can no longer attend the Manchester Concert because I have a lot of course work to submit for my Postgrad Diploma in Legal Practice this week. I'm totally "gutted" that I can't go... I posted my ticket to Larry in Illinois, in the US on 21st October via 'Airsure' Mail Service (it is supposed to take 5 days for a letter to reach the US from the UK i.e. 1 day less than Air Mail)... It was held up in New York for a further 5 days and found its way into Larry's mailbox in the US, only the day before he was due to leave to fly over here to the UK (1st November)... The ticket travelled Eastwards back over the Atlantic Ocean in Larry's best designer wallet (and then back again Westwards across the Atlantic again last week when Larry returned home)...
Have we broken a new world record for the most travelled Hayley Westenra concert ticket I wonder?
BTW Dean, don't forget to keep your wits about you on Monday night... There will be a "B-17" right behind you!!!
I know everybody will have a fantastic night. I hope Hayley only performs if she really feels rested enough though...
Incidentally, here's an interesting point of info for you all... On Monday night, it will be exactly 4 years (as far as the days go) since Hayley last performed at the Manchester Bridgewater Hall. She last performed there on Monday 22nd November 2004 during the "Winter Pure" Tour...
With, I guess, a little less than 24 hours before the tour bus sets off with it's precious cargo and heads for Manchester, I hope that Hayley has recovered her health and is fit and well enough to enjoy resuming her "River of Dreams" tour.
I am still intending to be at the venue between 3 and 4pm depending on which train I catch, which will depend on factors outside my control.
I'm still finding it strange that nobody here wants seat B17
Hi Dean, I suppose I must be one of the 'nearest' but even so it is well over a hundred miles. I have thought long and hard about this It would mean a two and half hour drive, after a hard days work, arriving just before the concert. This would be followed by the return journey into the small hours of the morning. Then work the next day So, much as I would love to it is not really sensible. I expect there are others in the same 'work' situation but are even further away. That is the problem with midweek concerts !
For those lucky enough to be there enjoy the concert
