For Hanson fans, it’s been a few years too many since the release of 2013’s Anthem. And with nothing more than the benevolent will to serve those fans (oh, and to plug a new Yahoo Screen app for iOS and Android) internet tech giant Yahoo announced today it will live stream the Grammy-nominated pop trio from their concert this Thursday at Chicago’s House of Blues.
The three brothers are stopping through the Windy City as part of their Roots and Rock N Roll tour, a special 10-city run across the U.S. and Canada, with two concerts at each stop; the first night featuring “iconic covers and more,” the second, “iconic Hanson songs and more.” And if you’ve longed for the day when the boy-turned-man band might offer up a different product alongside its buoyant, pleasing pop, say a cheekily-named new craft beer, the tour also serves as an introduction to the band’s craft beer, Mmmhops Pale Ale, now available in select cities.
“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.
“This tour is all about celebrating our musical journey,” said Isaac Hanson. “Each night will be a totally unique experience,” added Isaac Hanson.
According to Yahoo!, the show “will be available to fans across the U.S. for free through the Yahoo Screen App for iOS and Android, on connected devices (Apple TV, Roku, XBox), and desktop at https://screen.yahoo.com/live/event/hanson.”
