We Need Your Help! #MOETour #Hanson25 [Setlists & Tickets]

By | May 4, 2017

With the MOE tour kick off just around the corner, we are looking for your help! If you are attending a show, please consider sending us a photo of your ticket for the site. We are currently looking for E-Ticket AND Hard Ticket images for all of the shows on the tour.  Please note that no tickets will be posted on the site until after the show has happened, we just try to get tickets in advance since after the show they can become lost, damaged or even autographed!

We also have set up a form for you to sign up to be the official “setlist sender” for each of the shows on the tour.  Send the songs in song by song as the concert goes along or keep track of them all and send them after the show has ended, we have no preference as long as in the end we get the set list 🙂  You can text it to us, email it to us or tweet it to us. Or if you have another suggestion of how you’d like to send it, we’re open to that as well.  If a show is missing from the form it means hansonstage will be in attendance and keeping track of the set 🙂

Thanks everyone for all of your help – we couldn’t have the database that we do without the help from the fanbase 🙂

Hanson has a new song out, see the video

By | May 26, 2017

Tulsa World

Hanson has a new song on its recently released album, “Middle Of Everywhere — The Greatest Hits.”

Take a look at the video.

The album includes hit singles “Mmmbop,” “Where’s The Love,” “Weird,” “This Time Around,” “If Only,” “Penny And Me,” “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin,’” “Get The Girl Back” and a new single, “I Was Born.”

In March, Tulsa World reporter Jimmie Tramel talked with Taylor Hanson, one of the brothers in the pop-rock trio, about the project.

“Greatest hits, that phrase is a funny one because so much of your history is in pieces,” he said. “It’s an album here or a song there. So this collection doesn’t cover everything because you can’t in one (album), but it really does, I think, encapsulate the music of multiple albums and it not only hits on singles, but it also includes kind of key songs from the different albums.”

Added Taylor Hanson: “It’s one of those things that if people are kind of rediscovering or getting into the band for the first time, it’s the kind of thing where you get it, and then you get a really good sense of where we have been. And then you can dive in and search out albums you may or may not have since we started.”

Hanson Keeps It In The Family

Hanson made up of brothers Isaac, Taylor, and Zac are celebrating 25 years of being a band with a new tour this year and new music!

Their latest song is called, “I Was Born” and for the music video the band of brothers kept it in the family.

The music video features all three band members’ children! I am a fanson, but not a good enough one to tell you whose kids are whose. I can tell you that Taylor had kids first so the older ones might be his? Educated guess.

The video premiered at Hanson Day last week in Tulsa, OK. Yes, there is a Hanson Day and it is a big deal. I have friends that go every year. One such friend verified for me that the kids in the video are their children and Taylor said they held auditions and a few didn’t make the cut. Oh, Taylor. Such a jokester.

I am not ashamed to admit that I literally got goosebumps watching this music video. The color effects at the end are really cool and the whole vibe and theme of the song about being nobody but yourself is just so awesome!

“I Was Born” is available to buy today (May 26th) on iTunes and everywhere!

 



Hanson’s Got A New Song, And Guess What? It’s Fantastic

By | May 26, 2017

When Hanson‘s inescapable “MMMBop” topped the charts back in 1997, Hanson brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zachary were 16, 14 and 11, respectively. So if you didn’tcome of age to (or otherwise fall in love with) that song and the bestselling album from which it came, this may sound like a bold statement: Hanson was, and still is, a terrific band, complete with real musical and songwriting chops, airtight harmonies and boundless stage charisma. For skeptics, tarring Hanson with the dreaded “boy band” label has been all too easy, but to dismiss it is to miss out on a ton of delightful music.

Hanson has stayed active in the two decades since Middle Of Nowhere, releasing a string of albums amid side projects ranging from Taylor Hanson’s 2009 supergroupTinted Windows to the band’s line of “Mmmhops” beer. So it only makes sense that 2017 — which marks not only 20 years of Middle Of Nowhere, but also Hanson’s 25th anniversary as a band — would spawn a greatest-hits collection, titled Middle Of Everywhere: The Greatest Hits. What’s actually, genuinely surprising is that the compilation’s token new song, “I Was Born,” is fantastic.

Seriously, watch this video. It’s plenty cute, with the Hanson men sharing lip-synching duties with 11 of the most adorable Hansonian offspring you’ve ever seen. But the song is a gloriously rousing, life-affirming top-down anthem that’s virtually impossible to resist — seriously, “I Was Born” is out today, and if it’s not in a car commercial by this time next week, every ad agency in America will have fallen down on the job.

“The video is about celebrating the dreams that we all have and the pure optimism of the human spirit,” Taylor Hanson writes via email, backing up the sense of joy that shines through within the first 10 hand-clappy seconds of “I Was Born.” “And what better way to show that optimistic view of the world than through the eyes of children? For 25 years, we have been able to live out what we feel we were ‘born to do,’ and this song brings that message full circle.”
