It’s the day that Hanson fans have long awaited for two years.
According to hanson.net, after two years without a North American tour, the band is returning with a special 10-city tour across the US and Canada, featuring 2 concerts in each of the 10 major markets. The tour schedule includes a stop at the House of Blues in New Orleans on Oct, 22 and 23.
The tour will also mark the launch of the band’s craft beer, Mmmhops Pale Ale, in new markets across the country.
“This tour is all about celebrating our musical journey, starting with a night of cover songs that have inspired us, followed by a night of rare tunes and fan favorites. Each night will be a totally unique experience,” said Isaac Hanson.
In addition to the two special concerts, at each tour stop the band’s Hanson Brothers Beer will be presenting an after-party, which will feature a special DJ set from Taylor Hanson and showcase Mmmhops Pale Ale in select cities. This fall will mark the first time the award-winning beer has been available in many of the tour markets.
“This is a special tour so we felt it deserved a special party, plus we are thrilled to be able to share our Mmmhops Pale Ale with a lot of our fans for the first time,” said Taylor Hanson.
Tickets will be sold as a 2-night package giving all attendees a complete musical experience. The after-party will be available to concert goers as an add-on to the ticket package. All tickets are available starting today, June 29th, for Hanson.net fanclub members, and the public onsale will begin on July 10th.
The band will also continue its Take The Walk Campaign, which fights extreme poverty in Africa through one-mile barefoot walk events and grassroots fundraising. Walks are lead by the band, and will be held before concerts in each city on the tour.
Since the release and world tour behind 2013’s acclaimed sixth studio album Anthem, Hanson has been working with a number of other artists, including a collaboration with Blues Traveler, ‘Top Of The World’ released in Spring 2015, and the pop song ‘Unbelievable’ with Owl City, which they will be performing on The Today Show on July 14th.
