Hunter Hayes is already making waves with the news of his upcoming Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, set to kick off October 30, but fans will get a glimpse of the unprecedented interactive experience Hayes will be incorporating into his headlining show when he performs on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight at 11:35 p.m./10:35 p.m. CT.
Utilizing custom technology that has never been taken on an entire tour before now, Hayes has partnered with Glow Motion Technologies to invite fans to become the integral feature of his headlining show by offering all ticket-holders for the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour a customized LED wristband that will allow them not only to participate in the concert experience, but be the concert experience.
“Glow Motion is very excited to partner with Hunter Hayes on his upcoming tour,” said Justin Roddick of Glow Motion Technologies. “Together, we will engage fans in ways that have never before been possible to create the most interactive concert experience the world has ever seen. Hunter’s amazing talent and tech-savviness make him a perfect fit to help launch our product to fans.”
Additionally, Hayes is partnering with the USO to create special moments for troops and families at each show that will honor the military as part of the USO’s “Every Moment Counts” campaign. Prior to his tour kick-off, Hayes will also perform two USO performances, one stateside and one overseas.
“This tour is definitely going to be different than anything we’ve done before, and we’re using technology that’s never been used on tour before,” said Hayes. “Not only will fans be part of the show, but they will really BE the show, and I’m so honored to be able to share that experience with our servicemen and women as well.””
Tickets for Hayes’ Dec. 5 tour stop in Jacksonville, Fla. are currently on sale, with additional dates to go on sale to the public this Friday, Sept. 5 at Ticketmaster.com. Warner Music Nashville label-mates Dan + Shay and The Railers will join Hayes as supporting acts for the North American dates on the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, produced by AEG Live/The Messina Group.
