Message From The Band
This week has been incredible, as we kick off the first few shows of the ANTHEM TOUR in Australia and New Zealand. Starting off in Brisbane we had a true Aussie experience at the Australia Zoo hosted by the gracious Irwin Family. We were happy to include the trip in our itinerary, that we held a python, held an alligator and kissed a giraffe … it’s hard to explain.
On the music side we’ve been blown away by the fans at all the shows. Brisbane set the tone with a packed house and Gold Coast was raucous, and we had the challenge of performing the FIRST fan voted on set list. Last night in Sydney at one of our favorite Australian venues, The Enmore, the crowd jumped so high on the final tune you could feel the room shake.
We are so proud to be able to share music with so many fans over the more than 15 years since our first visit to Australia, looking out at our concert crowds and meeting fans throughout the promotion of the tour, reminds us why Australia is one of our favorite places in the world to visit. Today we’re headed off to Melbourne and we know it will not disappoint. We can’t wait to see you all along the tour, and especially, the Hanson.net members who are joining us for the special fan club events.
Also, don’t forget to cast your vote for the set list at one of the two remaining set list voting concerts.
We will see you on the road, and online. Have a great week!
Isaac, Taylor and Zac
