Dan + Shay were playing a show at T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri on Sunday, November 14th when they noticed a young boy in the audience holding up a sign that caught their attention. The sign read, “i should probably go to bed…but i’ve waited 14,016 hours for my first concert,” referring to the duo’s hit song as well as the concert, which was rescheduled from April 9, 2020. The young fan then turned the sign around to reveal a question — “can i come play guitar and sing with you?” — so the duo invited the boy onstage to sing.
“The creativity alone would have awarded him a free t-shirt, or at least a guitar pick, but the real magic happened when he turned the sign around to reveal the words ‘can i come play guitar and sing with you?'” the duo wrote in a social media post featuring the video of the moment. “We asked him his name and he said ‘kyler.’ He bravely told the kansas city crowd that he knew how to play ‘i should probably go to bed,’ so we gave him a guitar and microphone and let him do his thing.”
The video posted by Dan + Shay shows Kyler singing “I Should Go To Bed” and playing guitar while the packed arena of fans sings along with him. As the duo wrote in the caption, the future entertainer also announced the score of the Kansas City Chiefs game, which led to more fanfare from the crowd.
“It’s moments like this that make us so grateful for what we get to do,” the duo wrote. “Hopefully someday when kyler is selling out stadiums, he’ll let us open for him.”
Dan + Shay are currently on The (Arena) Tour, which runs through December 5th. The tour was originally set for Spring 2020 but was postponed due to COVID-19.
