Continuing a streak of country performances, this year’s Homecoming concert features a rising young musician from Louisiana.

Last week, the Campus Activities Board (CAB) announced Hunter Hayes will perform at the Homecoming concert on Nov. 5. The concert will take place in Diddle Arena at 7 p.m.

In previous years, WKU hosted the Eli Young Band, Justin Moore, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan and Josh Turner.

Rachel McClain, a Bowling Green sophomore and CAB member, said although CAB considered other options, the timing lined up perfectly for Hunter Hayes.

McClain said the news of Hayes’ upcoming performance was received well on campus.

“A lot of people say they are really excited,” said McClain. “They wanted to buy tickets right now.”

Tickets went on sale on Monday, Aug. 31, at 8 a.m. Students can purchase regular seating in advance for $25 or seating on the floor in advance for $30. Either type of seating can be purchased on the day of show for $35.

The public has the opportunity to go to the show as well. In advance, attendees can purchase regular seating for $35 and floor seating for $40. Both ticket types will cost the public $45 on the day of the show.

Louisville sophomore Amber Moorman said she is definitely looking forward to Homecoming.

“This is the first year I have been really excited about the concert,” Moorman said.
