Roots & Rock ‘N’ Roll Tour Setlist / Ticket sign up!

It’s that time again – we are looking for people to sign up to keep track of the setlists for the upcoming tour shows as well as submit images of their tickets for the site.  Any tickets submitted before the shows will not be posted until after the show and we will edit out any personal information (ie. names) that are printed on the tickets.

If you are interested in keeping track of the setlist, let us know. We have a few ways you can do it:

-Let us know your twitter name and tweet the setlist (or tweet it “@hansonstage” so we won’t miss it) Feel free to tweet every few songs or song by song or catch us up at the end of the show with everything at once.

-Text us the setlist to (908) 2-HANSON (908)-242-6766 once again text every song, every few songs or catch us up at the end of the show

-Email the setlist to blog@hansonstage.com – as with the other options email everything at the end or as the show is going on

-Through our form http://blog.hansonstage.com/submit-a-setlist/
Basically we don’t care how we get it just as long as we get it :) We would prefer a heads up on how you’ll be sending it and how often if possible just so we know what to be on the look out for!

As usual, we’ll be looking for 3-5 people per show that we will not be attending in the event that phones die, certain phones don’t have service, etc.

Show tickets photos/scans/screen caps can be emailed to tickets@hansonstage.com  or through our form http://blog.hansonstage.com/submit-a-ticket/

7/24 Livestream recap

As promised, Hanson is doing a livestream every month from now until the Roots & Rock ‘N Roll Tour in October.  Friday July 24th was the latest installment.  If you missed it – here’s our recap!

The guys talked about sending in questions to be answered later in the stream
Video about Isaac talking about the R&R tour and mixing up setlists and how they really liked what they did with Look At You for MONA
Back in the studio the guys perform Look At You

The guys mentioned that Taylor for got to plug his mic pack in before the screen
New tour merch!
Jean Jacket for R&R tour – members only
Bumper stickers and tattoos

Voice mail contest winners video

(They had technical difficulties and had to stop the stream for a bit)

The stream came back and they sang Lean On Me – a song Zac said he had been singing all his life but they have never done live

Zac talks about going to camp with his kids
He taught them how to sing lean on me
They asked for camp experiences via Twitter

There should be a Hanson camp
Zac talks about the Mudder
BTTI but as a skiing event – how many would hit a tree
MMMHops + Skiing = bad
canoeing, smores, campfire songs is what theyre talking about

What are you looking forward to most on the tour?
They didnt tour last year to do different things – collabs, beer, etc
They are excited about shows and visiting their favorite cities
Playing live is an awesome experience
It has been a long time since they led walks so there will be walks on tour

Will you do music lessons on HDay – sort of done w/ lecture but not quite
That ticket will be really expensive
Members only stream – he did a how to (watching that stream will be really expensive)
You can play guitar w/ zac on the members only stream

Favorite camp experience – breaking arm so she didn’t have to go to camp
Saved from water moccasin – lived

Tour is covers/influences
Followed by Hanson catalog & rare songs
Will it be recorded? They dont know but it has been talked about
Wanted to put together an EP of cover songs but not sure if its happening or not
One way to get the recordings – be there!

BTTI Europe – good idea?
Find us an island!
Birmingham! Less tropical.

Best fast food burger
Most burgers don’t age well
Things that age well, indian food, burritos pizza
Burgers get soggy
5 guys is pretty great  (but not fries)
Wendys Jr Bacon Cheeseburger
The Brook in Tulsa

What memories from Unbelievable do you relate to most?
Jurassic Park.
My favorite line in jurassic park was “hold on to your butts”
action movies
People nostalgic about them because they were part of childhoods but listen to songs again and…
There are things from your childhood that actually were awesome like Ferris Bueller, Raiders of the Lost Ark
That is what they hope to be
Very Cherry jellybeans better than Dr Pepper
Something got confused in the 90s – Rex’s Boneless Chicken – not their favorite restaurant (double favorite)  The whole thing about jello and jelly beans that they got in the mail and they still have it. They are ok in a nuclear apocalypse

Will the tour go outside the US?
As of right now they dont think it is likely to happen.
The more feedback they get about interest the more likely it is
Tour is supposed to be close to home and they are markets where they have a solid following

Choosing the setlist for covers difficult?
It has been.
It’s not completed but they will start in September w/ rehearsals
Throwing ideas back and forth w/ open minds
Conceptualizing
Check PMs on Hnet to see ideas
Probably not a lot of hair metal – poison, whitesnake
Every rose does have its thorn
Their musical roots and influences – not really metal
Only old songs or new cover songs?
Modern songs are also inspirations so could be some current covers from recently
Travis

Are there more 90s lies?
Nevermind.

Questions have been less questions and more statements.
They’ve been questionable

Video clip of Hanson w/ Owl City on the Today Show

The guys performed On and On

Video of Hanson and Blues Traveler at Red Rocks / Top of the World collaboration

Members only songs during Hanson Night on tour?
That’s a big part of the intention

Taylor doing another cooking segment?
I’m cooking might as well turn on the camera
Grilling

Star Wars – new trilogy
Awesome
Tear of joy

August 28th 6pm CT will be the next stream

Today is Friday and that means it is time for another Live Stream.  Each month leading up to the R&R tour we are inviting everyone to join us for an Alive Tonight stream broadcast from 3CG studios.  Lights are set, microphones are on and everything will start at 6pm CT.  These streams give us a chance to share what we have been up to, play music, take questions, and generally enjoy ourselves Live on camera.  It is going to be a great time. We hope you will join us!

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

‘MMMBop,’ ‘Blue (Da Ba Dee)’ and more of the best nonsense song titles

SunTimes

Some of the best pop songs feature lots of “yeahs,” “la la las” and “oohs” to make them extra catchy and easy to sing along to, but some songs take the opposite route and use titles and choruses made up of confusing nonsense words.

The folks at WatchMojo.com put together a pretty comprehensive top 10 list of some of the best songs with nonsense titles, including Hanson’s “MMMBop,” “Blue (Da Be Dee)” from Eiffel 65 and “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da” by The Police.

Most all of the songs were hits, which means sometimes we don’t have to understand a song to enjoy listening to it.
