Gustavus-Adolphus College to host Hayes concert on April 23
With spring comes an array of activities, ranging from outdoor sports to just spending time outside and getting some sun. Of course, one of the best things about spring is the variety of concerts. Outdoor festivals, one night shows, and arenas filled with fans all bring with them an air of youth and fun.
One concert that many students should keep on their radars on is the Hunter Hayes concert coming to St. Peter on April 23. The concert will take place in Lund Arena at Gustavus-Adolphus College, about half an hour away from Mankato.
Hayes has become a well-known name in the last few years, gaining more and more popularity each year. He has performed at the Grammys, been nominated for a Grammy four times, won the Country Music Association New Artist of the Year award in 2012, and is the youngest male performer to top Billboard’s Country chart. So, Hayes is used to being surrounded by adoring fans and being recognized. He is also used to collaborating with popular artists, including Stevie Wonder and Elton John.
At age 18, Hayes signed onto Atlantic Nashville Records, and in 2013, Hayes released his self-titled debut album at age 21, playing every instrumental part on the album, as well. Since then, Hayes has released two other albums, Storyline and his most recent album, The 21 Project, which he is currently touring.
