The AU Review
Hanson performed at the Tulsa Showcase at SXSW last week after revealing the details of their 25th Anniversary Middle Of Everywhere World Tour, which includes just-announced a stop over in Australia in June.
After a small delay due to sound issues the three original brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac hit the stage at a packed out Bungalow. The mostly older audience travelled down memory lane with a 60 minute set which contained a 12 song setlist.
A little older, a little wiser, Hanson performed their classics such as a slightly slowed down version of “Mmmbop”, “Where’s The Love” and “If Only”. Not much banter was given during a quick set but Hanson did say they were looking forward to seeing their fans all over the world at their 25th Anniversary tour (Australia and NZ included).
Where’s The Love
A Minute Without You
Penny and Me
Waiting For This
Get The Girl Back
Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’
Give a Little
I Was Born
Hanson reminds us of everything that was good about our youth – carefree and all-sugary pop. This was only amplified by the excitement of the older audience at this Tulsa showcase. Fun fact: Garth Brooks and St Vincent also come from Tulsa, though neither would appear on this night (Brooks later did a free show, however, to close out the Austin based festival in front of tens of thousands of people).
So, what has Australia got to look forward to this June? 25 years later, the brothers proved they still put on a great show and provide their audiences with guilt-free pleasure. The very best of Hanson indeed.
