By | July 9, 2014


Hanson, the American pop-rock sibling trio responsible for provoking teen hysteria in the mid 90s, have announced they will be allowing fans the opportunity to have their say on the set list for theirupcoming Australia tour.

The band’s second Sydney concert at the Hi-Fi on August 13th will be one of the select cities to get this rare treat from the pop-rock trio, along with their show at the Gold Coast’s Coolangatta Hotel on August 6th and their final Australian show of the tour at Fremantle Metropolis on August 15th.

Fans will have the opportunity to vote for up to 15 of their favourite Hanson song and will have to make the impossible choice from a list of 39 tracks. The selection includes such gems as Penny And MeIf OnlyThis Time Around and, yes, MMMBop.

“We have been blown away by the response to the coming tour, so to say thank you we’ve decided to put the set list in the hands of the fans – something we have never done in Australia before”, saidTaylor Hanson.

Speaking to Music Feeds recently, Taylor Hanson explained that it was exactly this kind of industry foresight and connection with fans that’s allowed them to thrive in the internet era.

“That seems crazy to talk about because it wasn’t that long ago, but we were able transition in a smoother way. What allowed us to leave our label once it started turning into a big, corporate mess and start our own was we knew where our fans were, who they were and how to talk to them.”

Setlist voting is take place on the band’s website right now. Hanson’s Australian tour will kick off on Tuesday, 5th August at The Tivoli in Brisbane.
