Booked two tickets for this concert a while ago now. Tickets arrived just the other day. I'm really looking forward to this concert as Reading is so close to where I live. I look forward to meeting some of you then
Hi Ron and welcome to the forum from Central England.
I'm sure getting tickets for this concert will be enough to make you "Dad of the year" :wink: but if Emma wishes to meet Hayley we must do our best to make that happen!
Whilst there can never be any guarantees, we usually manage to find time for a few minutes with Hayley even when she doesn't do a signing. Hopefully, there will be a signing at Reading and Emma will get her wish. However, it's always wise to have a plan B!
There are several of us at this concert with a few of us on A row. Please make yourself known to anyone you recognise, either from our avatars; Sweatshirts or ties and we'll do our best to help.
Hopefully there will be signing at the Hexagon as I would love to meet Hayley and Jonathan...although I've been to the Hexagon loads of times and recently they've said they can't have signings there for health and safety reasons!!! ...let's hope for Hayley and Jonathan they'll make an exception!!!!!

I'm coming to this concert!!! Reading is only about 20 minutes away form where I live, so my mum agreed to it haha. Not sure if I'll be going to the resceduled bournemouth pavillion concert though...may have to super sweet talk my mum haha. (off topic there sorry)
If you fell in love with Hayley Westenra at last year’s Henley Festival, you will be interested to know that she has teamed up with ex-G4 star Jonathan Ansell for a national tour.
Together they will be performing an amazing repertoire of romantic songs, both classical and popular. The show will also include solo sets from each artist.
For Hayley Westenra the five years since the release of her debut album Pure have been a whirlwind. Along with her second album Odyssey and her third, Treasure, she has achieved combined sales of well over three million albums around the world. Pure is still one of the fastest-selling classical albums in the history of the UK charts — an astonishing achievement for a classical artist who is still only 20.
Jonathan Ansell shot to fame three years ago with pop opera group G4 on the X-Factor, and has now established himself as a bona-fide solo star. His debut solo album Tenor at the Movies topped the classical charts and also hit the Top Ten of the mainstream pop charts.
You can hear these two talented young stars at The Hexagon in Reading on February 8 (tickets 0118 960 6060) and at the New Theatre, Oxford on February 11 (tickets 0844 847 1585).
Still only 20. That New Zealand sun must have rejuvination powers!
