This afternoon Hanson participated in the Loop.TV Festival to help raise money for MusiCares and those affected by COVID19. Their 18 minute set included This Time Around, Somebody That Wants To Love You, Wish That I Was There, Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’ and raised $551 during their performance! The festival is trying to raise $1 million so if you missed out and still want to donate, you can do so here.
The Songs By Tour page has a new addition with the manual addition of songs played at BTTI by year. Take a quick glance to see how many times the songs have been played and when – and which album songs haven’t been played at all! (And which songs have been played more times than there have even been Back to the Island events!) These stats are a lot more specific than the general # of times songs have been played by tour we have for other tours, but we thought it was an interesting look to see what songs seem to be popular at the event and which ones have been ignored.
Tune in today, Friday, April 17, for the latest episode of The Paste Happiest Hour, our daily livestream interview and music show.
First up at 5 p.m. ET is Hanson, the pop rock trio from Tulsa, Oklahoma made up of brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac. And then at 5:25 p.m., we’ll be joined by Americana legend Shelby Lynne
Hanson shot to fame with their 1997 hit, “MMMBop,” and they’ve continued to evolve with their 11th album, String Theory, released in 2018. Taylor was also a member of the band Tinted Windows with Smashing Pumpkins’ James Iha, Cheap Trick’s Bun E. Carlos and the late Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne. The band has also become known for their charity work fighting both poverty and AIDS in Africa. Watch the band’s 2017 Paste session from Same Sky Studio in Austin, Texas, while you wait.
BACK TO THE ISLAND 2021
Fan Club Exclusive: We are excited to announce the Back To The Island 2021 event on sale dates! Each time we put together a new Back To The Island, we are thrilled to host guests from around the world, while offering a musical escape unlike anything else we do throughout the year. Especially at a time of social distancing and limited access to in-person concerts and events, we are even more excited to look forward to our next great journey to Jamaica with YOU. We also know that many people are living in uncertainty, whether at home or at work, so we are happy to be able to offer an additional discount which will hopefully help to make it possible for you to join us in 2021.
The Back To The Island destination concert event is a tropical escape that takes music fans to a world-class resort destination on the Caribbean shore, to enjoy connecting with other music fans in a beautiful place, while sharing an unforgettable musical experience with HANSON as your host.
Throughout the event, guests are invited to relax in the tropical beauty of Jamaica with the soundtrack of twenty-eight years of HANSON music as their tour guide. Back To The Island 2021 will feature three full HANSON concerts, solo sets by Isaac Taylor and Zac – something only Back To The Island attendees have ever been treated to, as well as musical guests and hosted activities with the band, including team game nights and a late night dance party.
Come take part in the ninth annual BTTI and escape to the tropics to celebrate HANSON’s 29th year together on the beaches of the Caribbean. We are looking forward to returning and we hope you’ll join us when we head Back To The Island!
Pre-Sale begins May 4th
