Saturday night I went to my first concert in over 4 months. That may not seem like a big deal to some, but for me, it was more than long overdue ;)
Saturday afternoon my two friends and I headed downtown to the Indiana State Fair to see Hunter Hayes! This was the 6th time I’ve seen Hunter (which is crazy), and I think it turned out to be my favorite show of his so far. Yes, most definitely.
Since the concert didn’t start until 8pm, we got to the fair around 5pm. Of course we had to eat some of the traditional fair food. I ended up getting a veggie gyro and ice cream. Both were equally amazing. I may have also tried some of my friends fried cookie dough. Yeah. That exists. I think regular ol’ cookie dough is better though ;)
The seats we had for the concert were general admission, so basically it was first come, first serve. We had overheard that some girls had been in line since 7 AM. Um, no thanks. We ended up not even getting in line and just merging our way in (which is what a lot of others did too) because they ended up opening all the doors rather then making people go in a single file line.
We were SO thankful for this, because had we had to get in line, we would’ve been really far back. We somehow managed to get in the very front row. I honestly don’t know how that happened.
Dan + Shay opened for Hunter, and then around 9:15 it was time for the main act!
This was the closest I had ever been for one of his concerts, and it was amazing. His set list was very similar to the We’re Not Invisible Tour. He even sang Counting Stars again (with Dan + Shay) and that made me so happy. I love that song.
I think my favorite song was when he sang “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me”. He always jokes that that song is for his “awkwardly single people” (ahem, me). During that song he came over right in front of where we were standing, and at one point grabbed my hand. Okay. Cool Hunter.
I also love when he sings “Wanted”. He lets the audience sing the chorus and it’s just amazing. Trust me on it.
At the end of the concert (which went by way too quickly in my opinion) he came down to high-five people. Since he walked past me twice, I got to touch his hand two more times. Cannot complain ;)
Thanks Hunter for one of my favorite concerts to date<3
