Darren attends the 29th Annual American Music Awards 2002
The Favorite Latin Artist Awards was present by Darren Hayes and Jamie O'Neal. Enrique Iglesias was the winner, but he was not able to attend
Darren does his first ever live solo performance at Fashion Week in New York.
Crazy. Madness. Fashion Week. Oh My God! You thought the rock and roll industry was insane? Try sound check at a runway show. Try...IT ALMOST DIDN'T HAPPEN!! My first live performance as a solo artist and they were running so far behind that I almost didn't get a sound check. The stage hands were polishing the stage and looking visibly peeved off at our presence (me, Angi, Angela and Robyn my backing vocalists) as we attempted to get our sound happening. And poof! It was all over in 4 minutes or so. All that preening, prancing and chaos and it ended as quickly as it began.

Darren Hayes debuted as a solo artist with the release of Spin, recorded in San Francisco, CA, and co-produced with Grammy Award-winning Walter Afanasieff.
Spin gained major success in the United Kingdom and Asia and racked up close to two million sales. Spin carried on in the same musical vein as Savage Garden, with a less soft rock sound and more edgey R&B vibe, although the first single "Insatiable" was a ballad, reaching Number 3 in Australia. Other singles included: "Spin," "Crush(1980Me)" and "I Miss You".
Darren gets an ARIA (Australian Music Industry Awards) nomination for Best Male Artist
