Fan Club Exclusive: 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.
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!
On Sale Begins today!

Billboard’s Live At-Home series is continuing into May.
The performances for the week of May 11 will feature at-home sets from Hanson, Noah Cyrus and more via Billboard‘s Facebook page. Loud Luxury will kick things off on Monday (May 11) with a set at 1 p.m. EST. Other acts slated to perform during the week include: Natanael Cano & Junior H and Camilo.
Hanson will be participating in HARKCHELLA on Cinco de Mayo (May 5, 2020) It will be a linvestream concert with a stellaw lineup of amazing bands and musicians who are donating their time to support HARK – Helping Arts Reach Kids. Concert will be streamed on all their social media – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! Concert starts at 7pm Pacific time and is scheduled to go until 11pm.
HARK’s mission is to bring healing and coping techniques through creative experiences that allow children to express their fears and triumphs that may be a part of their illness or injury. Your participation and donations make a difference by bringing much needed supplies and volunteering with art, music and other creative opportunities for the critically ill and injured children at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Our goal is to provide a hospital-wide environment splashed with color and fun! We are a non-profit organization creating a space and providing materials for many sick and recovering children. We are committed to helping these children share their experiences and reflect on their lives during such a difficult time, which in turn gives them a better healing rate.
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.
