There’s no need to be ashamed if you still sing along to 1997’s “Mmmbop” — Hanson has stuck around all these years, and they plan to play a free show in Huntsville. The trio will perform an all-ages show Tuesday at 6 p.m. at The Zone at Bridge Street Town Centre. The event is sponsered by WAHR. The radio station’s program director, Jimbo Wood, said the band will play an acoustic set of five or six songs to promote their latest album, “Shout It Out.”

He said there is no admission charge because Hanson “is being nice, and they’ve been in this business a long time and know how to market themselves.”

The brothers will also appear live on WAHR at 4 p.m. that day. Call 256-327-8880 or 256-534-9900.
