    “If you haven’t already got your tickets I would recommend booking now before it’s too late!”

    Given a four star rating by Rolling Stone Magazine and Mojo Magazine, Haye’s sixth studio album ‘What It Is’ is “a musically ambitious and lyrically deep statement of an artist in his creative prime with his wit and style never being more evident.”

    Hayes is the rare artist who can rock a packed dance hall one night and hold a theatre at rapt attention the next, and he will be live at PAC on Saturday 18 May, 8pm.
