Having a concert on a Tuesday night did not deter fans of Hunter Hayes from gathering at Ward Field on Oct. 17.

More than 5,000 Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam patrons showed up to see the country music star put on a free concert presented by Navy Entertainment.

The 26-year-old played a selection of his hits and other fan favorites over the course of 90 minutes. Hayes also took the time to thank the crowd repeatedly for their support and for their service to their country.

In addition to the packed concert, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) wanted to give their customers even more. So organizers worked together to a Hawaiian Hoedown. The pre-concert event featured games, contests, food and beverages, plus activities and exhibits by event sponsors.

One of the hottest “tickets” was the chance to meet Hunter Hayes. About 70 lucky fans were selected to meet Hayes and have a photo taken with him.

MWR is planning more events for the holiday season and beyond. Visit
