FOLLOWING a four-year UK hiatus, Hanson made a triumphant return to the UK in June and played five sold-out shows in six days.

With demand way outstripping the tickets available, they are returning to the UK in November as part of their Shout It Out world tour, which comes to Manchester’s Academy 2 tonight.

Shout It Out debuted in the US at number two in the Billboard Independent charts.

The album was produced and written exclusively by the band and features special guests Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt and horn arranger Jerry Hey, who worked with and Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones.

The band was band formed in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by brothers Isaac (guitar, vocals), Taylor (keyboards, piano, vocals), and Zac Hanson (drums, vocals).

The 1997 hit song MMMBop, which was a world-wide chart-topper, came from their major label debut album Middle Of Nowhere, which earned three Grammy nominations for the then-teenyboppers.
