Get the full schedule now at hanson.net (it’s a long one).
In the meantime, check out this video of Isaac, Zac and Taylor Hanson announcing the big day.
Oh, Hanson. You meant so much to ’90s girls.
Head on over to Buzzfeed to check out TBH’s graphic description of all the phases of emotion that a Hanson fan has to deal with during Hanson withdrawals.
9. “MMMBop” by Hanson
I know what you’re thinking: How could this song with the most innocuous lyrics in the world be dark? Well, it’s not quite as simple as you might think. If you listen to the verses in between the “MMMBops,” you’ll hear the teens talking about the brevity of friendships and how very few of them actually last. Not the darkest song, but pretty somber stuff for a tween.

The Hanson Brothers . Remember them right?
Mmmmbop , ba … gives mmmbop pyridine gives mmm bop ba …
Three brothers there cabeludinhos Tulsa in Oklahoma , which became a phenomenon in 1997 ( can you believe it’s been 17 years ? Grew Guys ) . That charm of Family Do- Re – Mi , Monkees and such ( our , my references are getting REALLY old ) .
Anyway , recalled .
In 2005 they were responsible for another big hit , who you probably have not heard because it happened in a school , the Delone Catholic High School .
Hurricane Katrina New Orleans had ended and everyone in the United States tried to help as he could.
It was then that the academic center of this school had an idea to raise funds .
( the sound of the school system) :
” Dear students , from today we will play by every school , every day, a beautiful song titled Mmmbop , Hanson Brothers before classes begin . And between classes too. Oh, and at lunchtime too. Actually we play all the time Mmmbop , IN STEM , join up $ 3,000 for the homeless from Hurricane Katrina ”
The “Stop The Bop” campaign was a success.
In less than a week the students managed to gather $ 3500 and the music stopped.
The Hanson brothers loved the idea, and sympathetically even sent a signed CD for each student. Look at the hit to stay playing in your head too. Sai dancing.
USING THE SAME IDEA
In 2011, a Chicago school used the same strategy to raise funds for a charity. They used the song “Baby” by Justin Bieber. The goal was achieved in just 3 days. Remember all.
That is what is Kickstarter!
“Stop The Bop” is used today in schools and businesses throughout the country.
What other artist would be able to raise the amount in less time mior only to be silenced huh? Predict down there.
Piri Pipiri, piri piri, crazy in the head …
The best concerts of 2013 for the Eastern half of Pennsylvania saw a resurgence and resilience of older acts. They saw the emergence of new acts.
They took place in venues large and small, venerable and very new, near and far. They included many styles and performances.
The best of 2013 was, you might say, a mix tape of music.
The Rolling Stones was a classic band at a big venue, celebrating 50 years as a band and touring the United States for the first time in nearly eight years at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. Equally classic Bob Dylan played closer (Bethlehem’s Stabler Arena).
Even Justin Timberlake, who despite being only 32 has, starting with ‘NSync, been topping the charts for more than 15 years, was an “older” performer playing bigger venues. Timberlake and Jay Z, a “classic” himself at 44 and 20 years into his career, sold out HersheyPark and Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia this summer.
But Andrew McMahon was playing his first solo tour when he stopped at the small Chameleon Club at Lancaster, then later at the 1,000-capacity Musikfest Cafe in Bethlehem.
The band fun. and duo Tegan and Sara are musical neophytes, but played a big arena: Philadelphia’s Mann Music Center. Steve Earle is a veteran, but played the 300-capacity Sellersville Theatre. The Hooters, playing together 33 years, returned to the revived 600-capacity Ardmore Music Hall.
Sands Bethlehem Event Center, in just its first full year, brought some of our favorite acts to the area. But so did Easton’s State Theatre, at more than 100 years old, and the 34-year-old Stabler Arena.
With those types of acts playing those types of arenas, 2013 was a great year in concerts.
We didn’t see all of them — we skipped Philly’s Made in America festival for the Allentown Fair — but ended up seeing more than 170 this year in 57 venues.
These are our Top 50:
34. Hanson, Sept. 2, Sands Bethlehem Event Center
It gets frustrating to make the same point in every review of a concert by the musical group Hanson, but it’s worth repeating. Anyone who would have caught the three brothers without ever knowing about its monster pop hit “MMMBop” when all were adolescents would have rightly been impressed by accomplished musicians playing songs in a variety of styles better than most anything on the radio and working hard at it. That’s because in the 17 years since that song came out, the Hanson brothers have continued to develop their musical skills and put out strong and varying albums. That’s what Hanson’s hour-and-45-minute set was like, offering up pop, R&B and even rock — all of it good — in a 24-song set that alternated between hits and songs from as early as the debut disc “Middle of Nowhere” to “Anthem,” released in June.
Not to deliberately ignore the doubtless litany of bands lending their palates toward the production of personalized alcoholic beverages, but it seems Mastodon and Hanson have more in common than just a mutual aptitude for creating instrumentally challenging, musically fierce tunes. (I mean, what is “MMMBop” if not an onomatopoeic call for violence? Luckily the brothers have so far repressed their desire to “da ba doo wop” and potentially send someone to the hospital.)
Yes, no one need doubt Mastodon’s musical bonafides given their discography over the last decade-plus, but little did we know that behind all of that tattooed intensity lies a rather elegant appreciation for the IPA. They give the contents of their glass a swirl. On stage, they spew at the crowd the most uniform stream possible, in the process, resembling fountain sculptures of antiquity. And in a notable step forward as beer connoisseurs, last week it was revealed that the band, in collaboration with British craft beer makers Signature Brew , have come up with their very own, Mastodon-approved beverage: a Double Black IPA called Black Tongue . It’s filled with hops and such; excuse my ignorance. I’m also fairly certain no giraffes were harmed in its creation.
Not much to add beyond that. Check out the short doc below, and look forward to the release of Mastodon’s sixth studio album sometime this year.
A short explanation of what happens when Taylor Hanson cuts his hair… Get The Hair Back!
You all may know Taylor Hanson.
Musician. Entrepreneur. Father. Keyboardist and singer of the band Hanson. And, mamma mia, he’s hot as hell!!
He, as well as his brothers, has the incredible gift of natural (or supernatural) beauty.
And of course, he has the best hair in the world.
Since immemorial times he’s had all the ladies around him. Everything was just perfect.
But not so long ago something terrible, TERRIBLE happened…Taylor had a haircut.
He was like…
And that’s when all the madness began.
All the fans were like…
He left us speechless.
We checked once…twice…TEN TIMES the picture to see if it was real. We didn’t believe it.
We tried to convince ourselves that it was fake.
But it was REAL. The CRUEL truth was there, in front of our eyes.
We couldn’t do nothing but cry.
What kind of mean hair-stylist could have done something like that to us?
We tried to eat away the pain.
And to hide our dislike for the haircut.
But we couldn’t hide it for too long.
We were angry.
Why, Taylor, WHY?!
Now GO back to the hair stylist and ask for a refund.
You should learn from Ike
Oh yes, we love his hair!
