Tickets to see singer-songwriter Hunter Hayes, who will perform at the M.A.C. Center on Friday, Oct. 23, go on sale Monday at 10 a.m.

Students will be able to purchase tickets Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before they are available to the public.

Hayes was selected from a list of country artists who were available to perform, said Kevin Otubu, Undergraduate Student Government’s director of programming. USG booked Hayes in May 2015.

“There was a lack of country music, and I knew it was something I could do to bring a country artist to (campus),” Otubu said.

The last country artist to perform at Kent State was Dierks Bentley in 2010. USG has an agent in Boston with Articular Entertainment that helps them book artists, Otubu said.

Tickets will range in price from $15 for top level seats, $25 for floor seats and $35 for the general public. Tickets will be available at the M.A.C. Center or online on USG’s website.
