WEEKLY PIC

The US leg of the Middle Of Everywhere Tour has been amazing already. Here’s a snap from our show earlier this week in St Petersburg, Florida. It was an epic night! See you on the road!


MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

After six shows in a row this week, we are all enjoying a much needed day of rest a relaxation. Don’t get us wrong, the Middle Of Everywhere tour as been amazing and we are having the time of our lives, but even the good Lord rested on the seventh day.  This coming week will be busy as well with more concerts and the public on-sale of our Christmas concerts. The Finally It’s Christmas album will be out at the end of next month, but it feels like the Christmas shows will be the real icing on the cake (or on the Christmas cookie) ending a year of music and celebration.

It makes such a difference to play concerts for fans who sing and dance and join in, becoming part of the music.  We see it everywhere we go, from the concert filming a few days ago in LA to the Members event in Tampa and the concert last night in Atlanta.  I am sure every band thinks this, but all of you who come out to support us, who travel, who take Monday off work to rocket all night, or simply share a song, you truly are the best fans in the world. It means a great deal to us. See you on the road soon.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

Hanson, “Middle of Everywhere” (Three Car Garage)

www.hanson.com

My apologies, music fans, but I’m about to make you feel old. “Middle of Everywhere,” a greatest hits compilation, is being released to celebrate Hanson’s 25th anniversary. Yikes, how can that possibly be?

The collection opens with a new track, “I Was Born.” It’s not nearly as catchy as “Mmmbop,” but then again, what is? It’s a fair single, which will undoubtedly sound pleasant to longtime fans. The rest of the songs are culled from across their entire career, none of which I’d ever heard before — but still enjoyed.

Hanson announce December show at Manchester’s O2 Ritz, find out how to get presale tickets

By | September 15, 2017

The List

Hanson announce December show at Manchester's O2 Ritz, find out how to get presale tickets

Hanson, all grown up, will perform in Manchester this December

Brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac take ‘MMMBop’ (and other hits) to the city on Sun 10 Dec

Hanson are to perform a one off show at Manchester’s O2 Ritz this December, with presale tickets on sale at 10am on Tue 19 Sep.

The brothers, Isaac, Taylor and Zac, have spent the past year touring the world to celebrate 25 years of being a band. The Manchester show on Sun 10 Dec is their last UK date of the year.

With the effortlessly catchy, radio friendly pop anthem ‘MMMBop’, the Hanson brothers became a household name the world over. The track topped the charts in 27 countries, with millions attempting (and failing) to sing along with the chorus accurately. The correct words are: ‘Mmmbop, ba duba dop / Ba du bop, ba duba dop / Ba du bop, ba duba dop / Ba du, yeah’. Put your headphones on and practice for an hour a day.

Back then the trio were still in their teens, (16, 14 and 11), and their desire to perform has lasted into a third decade, with the group avoiding the pitfalls that typically trap teen stars.

All for the best, fans in Manchester have the change to hear hits from Hanson’s career (and the big, big hit too) up close and personal this December.

Hanson play Manchester’s O2 Ritz on Sun 10 Dec. Presale tickets go on sale at 10am on Tue 19 Sep, and tickets go on general sale at 9am on Thu 21 Sep. Act quickly, folks.

HANSON  HOLIDAY CONCERTS PRE-SALE BEGINS TODAY SEPTEMBER 15;
GENERAL ONSALE SEPTEMBER 22

UK CHRISTMAS SHOW ADDED

FINALLY IT’S CHRISTMAS ALBUM OUT OCTOBER 27

CURRENTLY ON MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE 25TH ANNIVERSARY WORLD TOUR

MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE – THE GREATEST HITS AVAILABLE NOW

On the heels of their 25th Anniversary celebration with sold-out concerts in Europe, Australia and Latin America on their Middle Of Everywhere World Tour and Greatest Hits release, pop-rock trio HANSON are adding a UK date to their already announced special holiday concerts in Toronto, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, the presale for which begins today, Friday September 15. The general on-sale date for these shows is next Friday, September 22. The Manchester UK date’s presale will start on Monday, September 18, general onsale Thursday, September 21. The concerts will feature new music from FINALLY IT’S CHRISTMAS, out October 27 on 3CG Records / S-Curve Records, as well as selections from the band’s debut Christmas releaseSnowed In, which is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year. FINALLY IT’S CHRISTMAS is available for pre-order now at all DSPs as well as via the official Hanson.net store.

FINALLY IT’S CHRISTMAS, which features four original tracks, and eight updated classics, reunites the band with S-Curve President Steve Greenberg who originally signed the band to Mercury Records in 1996, as well as co-producer and writing partner Mark Hudson (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osborne, Ringo Starr) who also collaborated on the band’s beloved Christmas releaseSnowed In. Adding to the production pedigree of the release are engineer and mixer CJ Eiriksson (Jacks Mannequin, U2, Phish, Matchbox 20), with the title and select tracks mixed by veteran chart-topper Tom Lord-Alge (U2, Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, The Wallflowers).

In contrast with the sentimentality of many Christmas releases, HANSON bring an organic rock ‘n’ roll energy to the album, featuring iconic favorites like Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas”, Stevie Wonder’s “Someday At Christmas” and Aretha Franklin’s “Winter Wonderland”, along with a re-imagined arrangement of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time” and lively renditions of modern classics like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas”. The album’s original songs, like the title track and “‘Til New Years Night” burst with celebratory energy, layered vocal arrangements calling to mind the Beach Boys and British invasion-era guitar riffs, while “Peace On Earth” highlights the band’s earnest lyrics and powerful melodies. The album is not without sentimentality, entirely, closing out with an intimate rendition of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, with guitarist Isaac singing lead on the Judy Garland classic, and a soulful gospel medley of two well-known songs from the Christmas Hymnal, “Go Tell It On The Mountain” and “Joy To The World”.

Like HANSON’s signature work on their studio albums, the band effortlessly fuses soulful melody with tight musical arrangements and a genuine reverence for their musical heritage, creating an endearing and impressive work fit for the intimacy of your living room, or the excitement of a large celebration with friends and family this Christmas.

HANSON is currently on the North American leg of their epic Middle Of Everywhere 25th Anniversary World Tour. Nearly a complete sell out, the trek – which will feature performances of the group’s most widely known material alongside fan favorites encompassing their extensive catalog – will culminate with the holiday themed concerts. For complete ticket information and other news, please see hanson.net/tours-events.

FINALLY IT’S CHRISTMAS CONCERTS

This past Friday saw the eagerly anticipated arrival of Hanson’s first-ever career anthology,MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE – THE GREATEST HITS, available now at all music retailers and streaming services. A wide array of editions is on offer, including digital download, CD, and nostalgic cassette pressings. In addition, a range of MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE merchandise – spanning t-shirts and bucket hats to a hardcover photo book and an extremely limited 25th Anniversary “Hansonopoly” Pewter Piece Game set – is available now at hanson.net/store.

MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE – THE GREATEST HITS collects 25 songs from Hanson’s six studio albums along with the acclaimed new single, “I Was Born”. The track received immediate critical applause, with NPR Music declaring it simply “fantastic…a gloriously rousing, life-affirming top-down anthem that’s virtually impossible to resist – seriously, if (“I Was Born” is) not in a car commercial by this time next week, every ad agency in America will have fallen down on the job.”

“I Was Born” is accompanied by a very special companion video, featuring eleven of the band’s twelve children and streaming now at Hanson’s official YouTube channel.

WATCH “I WAS BORN”

Isaac, Taylor, and Zac Hanson founded Hanson in 1992 and have spent the past 25 years on one of the most surprising, creative, and popular journeys in contemporary music history. The Tulsa, OK-based trio’s remarkable quarter-century in public life has been commemorated with major media coverage including The Washington Post and PEOPLE, which marked the anniversary with an exclusive “Track by Track” look at MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE – THE GREATEST HITS, noting, “The brothers have conquered a number of adult-sized hurdles together over the past two and a half decades in a valiant, successful effort to create soul-, R&B-, rock-, blues-, Motown- (and yes, pop-) inspired music on their own terms, from…starting their own indie label 3CG Records, to traveling to Africa and using their experiences and perfectly harmonized voices to spread awareness about deep issues far outside of themselves.”
