AZ State Fair
Over their first 20 years, pop-rock trio HANSON, made up of brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson, have made a significant mark on the music world. Five years building a fanbase as a local independent band led to a major label deal and a meteoric rise with the 1997 international smash single MMMBop, from their debut album Middle Of Nowhere. A long line of hits, four more studio albums, multiple Grammy nominations and over 16 million album sales followed. Over their second decade, the band has charted their own course running an independent label while maintaining a coveted connection with their global fanbase, and in 2007 they launched a grassroots campaign to support poverty and HIV/AIDS relief in Africa, TakeTheWalk.net.
“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.
For 23 years the three brothers have focused on the love of their craft, buoyed by an independent spirit which has allowed them to navigate the changing music business without sacrificing the quality of their work or their coveted relationship with fans all over the world. This fall’s Roots And Rock N Roll Tour celebrates that strong foundation musically, and sets the stage for new projects on the horizon.
The Arizona State Fair is proud to have Hanson and Nelson as members of the 2015 Concert Series, and welcomes them to the Coliseum on Friday, November 6, 2015.
