Hunter Hayes' 2019 Closer to You Tour
takes its name from a line in "Heartbreak."
"We talked about doing 'The Optimist Tour' because I feel like that's the spirit of the album," he told Stage Right Secrets
but the theme of his next album "is a lot of transparency through transformation."
Hayes added: "I felt like the Closer To You
theme, I wanted that to be the thing that people thought about when they come in for the show when they're thinking about going to the show. I think a lot of fans have seen our show before, but this is a completely different time for me. I want to feel more connected to everybody."
