With the 2019 Grammy Awards this Sunday, five-time nominee Hunter Hayes announced Grammy.com to unleash the details of his next upcoming headlining tour. The 2019 Closer to You Tour kicks off Apr. 18 in Atlanta and travels across the United States through June.
Fans that sign up for Hayes’ email list will gain early access to tickets beginning on Feb. 12, and general public tickets go on sale Feb. 15. Supporting acts have not been revealed just yet.
Hayes’ tour is named after a lyric in his newly released single, “Heartbreak.”
“If it gets me to you then it ain’t wasted time / With every so close I’m closer to the rest of my life / Another bad first date, another nothing left to say / What I mean is, the way I see it, I’m one heartbreak closer to you.”
The single marks Hayes’ return to country music — it’s his first official single in more than two years. Hayes wrote the song solo in a way he hasn’t done in years. “I started writing it on my trip to Hawaii at the beginning of last year, where I sat on the edge of the ocean and wrote nearly two pages of lyrics that approached a love letter to someone I’ve never met,” he shares.
