HANSON’S MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE TOUR ADDS TWO ADDITIONAL DATES IN EUROPE

March 21st 2017 – Multi-Grammy nominated pop-rock trio HANSON are starting their 25th year together with a bang. Their Middle Of Everywhere 25th Anniversary World Tour went on sale last week with many shows selling out in minutes throughout Europe and the US, including London, Antwerp, New York, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago and Boston, followed by quick sell outs in a number of other markets, including Nashville, Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, Pittsburgh and more. Due to demand, today the band is adding a second night at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire as well as an additional European date in Zurich, Switzerland.

The new dates come on the heels of Monday’s announcement of the Australia and New Zealand leg of the tour, including dates in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Gold Coast, Perth and Auckland. Presale for the London date will begin Tuesday March 21st, and for Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland on Wednesday March 22nd.

The tour will kick off on May 21st in Tulsa, OK with a headlining set at HANSON’s own rapidly growing The Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival. The South American leg is still to be announced.

In addition to HANSON’s 25th Anniversary, 2017 is the 20th Anniversary of the band’s debut release Middle Of Nowhere, led by the iconic global smash hit ‘Mmmbop’. This June, fans will be treated to performances featuring some of the group’s best-known material alongside fan favourites spanning their extensive catalogue.

Coinciding with their benchmark 25th year together, over which the group has released six studio albums and sold over 16 million albums, later this year, the band has confirmed they will release Middle Of Everywhere – The Greatest Hits, a comprehensive collection which includes hit singles “Mmmbop”, “Where’s The Love”, “Weird ”, “This Time Around”, “If Only”, “Penny And Me”, “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’”, “Get The Girl Back”, plus their brand new single “I Was Born”.

Founded in 1992, the trio of brothers began performing classic rock ‘n roll and soul music, and writing original material, crafting a unique blend of harmonies and organic soulful pop-rock. The group took the world by storm with their debut major release in 1997, ushering in a string of US top 40 singles and establishing them as one of the world’s leading music artists.

In 2003, the group founded their own independent 3CG Records, starting a new era for the band with their #1 independent album Underneath, featuring hit single “Penny And Me”, positioning them among the most successful independent bands to date. Since then, HANSON has released three studio albums under their label, toured the world cultivating a vibrant global fan base engaged by their dynamic live performances, and released an ongoing stream of special products direct to their devout fan community.

In 2013, the group diversified its brand with the founding of their Hanson Brothers Beer Company, and in 2014 added The Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival based in their hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The festival brings together artists and brewers from all over the world, culminating in one of the leading Craft Beer and Music Festivals in the US, with over 40,000 attendees, occurring this year on May 21st in Tulsa. The Middle Of Everywhere Tour showcases more than two decades of music in a celebratory world tour, alongside new music that will be followed by a further release in 2018.
