Hot on the heels of his wildly successful breakout year, Walker Hayes just announced plans to embark on his first-ever arena tour. 

Dubbed the Glad You’re Here Tour, the trek will visit 15 cities with special guest Parmalee

“I can’t believe that we are playing arenas,” Hayes shared. “It’s mind-blowing how our team is growing, how the crowds are growing, and how the music continues to connect with my audience. I’m just so grateful.”

Kicking off in Johnstown, PA on September 29, the Glad You’re Here Tour will visit cities around through U.S. before wrapping on November 12 in Everett, WA.

The news comes in the midst of Hayes’ Fancy Like Tour, which sold out theaters across the country. 

The tour’s namesake comes from Hayes’ forthcoming book, Glad You’re Here. Set for release on May 3, the book was written by Hayes with his best friend, Craig Allen Cooper and details their friendship and how an act of kindness from Craig changed Walker’s life. 

The past year has brought on unprecedented success for Walker Hayes, including a GRAMMY nomination, five ACM Awards nominations, a CMT Music Awards nomination and six nods for the upcoming 2022 Billboard Music Awards.
