Hunter Hayes Sets To Break World Record This May

Hunter Hayes, who was on the list of last year’s Most Influential Country Artists, has announced that he is going to try to break the Guinness world record for the most shows played in 24 hours this coming May.

On May 9, he’ll do a show in New York City at 8 in the morning and hit eight cities after, before landing at his final destination of Philadelphia and playing that show at 5 a.m. to some (and hopefully there are at least some) die-hard fans.

The 24 hours will be so jam-packed that he’s giving his band a few hours off, and he will take the stage by himself and do an acoustic set in New Jersey while they sleep for a little.

But, Hayes isn’t doing it just for himself — he’ll be doing some good, raising some awareness, as the 24-hour tour will be called ‘Hunter Hayes’ 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger‘.

According to the USA Today, Hunter:

“was astonished by the statistics” from Feeding America that more than one in five American children “aren’t sure where their next meal is coming from. Awareness is key with something like this, but just as important is that everyone can pitch in to make this story a better story — and how easy it is for us to help.”

May 9
8 a.m. – New York City, Good Morning America
9:15 a.m. – Boston, Paradise Rock Club
11:30 a.m. – Worcester, Mass., Palladium Upstairs (acoustic show)
1:45 p.m. – Providence, Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel

Hunter Hayes will be stealing the record from The Flaming Lips, who hold the title with eight shows in eight different cities in 24 hours.
