Hanson, still kicking around a decade after “MMMBop,” brings its Walk Around the World Tour to Orlando on Oct. 9 at House of Blues. In a phone interview today, Taylor Hanson, the middle brother, talked about how the group is using the tour to fight African poverty and AIDs relief and what it’s like to watch the Jonas Brothers inspire Hanson-style hysteria:
“There is definitely some Twilight Zone-esque qualities to it,” he says of watching the Jonas craze. “There’s a surreal quality to looking at that audience and the sudden awareness of that band by so many people. I hope they are able to harness whatever is the most authentic aspect about what’s going on right now and make a career out of it.”
