NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 22, 2014) – Following a sizzling performance on the TODAY Show’s Toyota® Concert Series this morning, four-time GRAMMY nominee Hunter Hayes officially announced his fall headlining tour, the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, set to kick off Thursday, Oct. 30 at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Penn.Warner Music Nashville labelmates Dan + Shay and The Railers will join Hayes as supporting acts for the tour, which will be produced by AEG Live/The Messina Group.

During the TODAY Show performance, Hayes entertained the massive crowd gathered in the plaza with his current Top 30-and-climbing single “Tattoo” as well as the No. 1 smash hit “I Want Crazy” and moving fan favorite, “Invisible.” The multi-talented singer-songwriter surprised fans by sporting a fresh henna tattoo sleeve with emblems from each city on the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, and three henna artists circulated the crowd inking fans with the tour logo. On television, viewers across the nation also got to see the first-ever localized commercial spots for a concert tour that are synced with the popular music identification service, Shazam.

“This tour is definitely going to be different than anything we’ve ever done before…and maybe anyone has ever done. It’s a lot of firsts not only for us, but even for the fans who have seen our show before,” said Hayes. “Every tour is all about the fans, but this one proves it. Not only are they going to be part of the show, they are the show…you’ll see what I mean!”
