Hunter Hayes Makes Fans Part of the Show With Wristbands
"You can rehearse the show as many times as you want. You can sound check, you can get in the same room, same lighting system, same stage, same arrangement, all that stuff, you can do that as many times as you want, and it means nothing," he tells ETonline. "When one person walks in the room, it's a show. They are the show. They bring the spirit that you want in the show. That's why, on this tour, we're giving everybody that buys a ticket, everybody that walks in the door gets a wristband. They are the show from the moment they walk in, and even after the show, it is all about them."
Hayes is planning an innovative show that offers fans the experience of being part of the action. Each ticket holder will be given a custom LED wristband that will help them be a part of the show, though Hayes is being quiet as to exactly how the technology will work.
“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,” he says. “Not only will fans be part of the show, but they will really BE the show."
The Tattoo (Your Name) Tour kicks off Oct. 30 in University Park, Penn. Hayes will be joined by opening acts Dan + Shay and the Railers.
