Article: The boys are back

The Backstreet Boys perform Tuesday at the Saddledome. Hanson performs Sept. 12 at MacEwan Hall. New Kids on the Block perform at the Saddledome on Nov. 19.

Article: Hanson cherishes autonomy

EDMONTON – In the late ’90s, Hanson’s first hit, MMMBop, was so out of place during that grungy, angsty time that it was used as an instrument of torture on a Saturday Night Live sketch. And sure, to a morose teenager, there was nothing hip about the bright, Jackson 5-inspired tune, but admit it: secretly we all loved… Read More »

Article: Reverb – Tonight: Hanson at The Moore EEEK!

Here’s some trivia for you: What band did the Village Voice deem “secretly the finest straight-up rock band in America?” Hanson. Okay, okay. I think it’s weird, too. When I think of the pretty brothers who sang “MMMBop,” I don’t think ROCK! But countless of their diehard fans and our sister paper would differ. I spoke with the… Read More »

Article: Five Live:Music

From The Oregonian: 2. Hanson Where is this well-scrubbed trio of so-gagworthy-adorable boys now? Coming to Portland, and no longer the tykes behind the pop-sugar hit song “MMMBop” of the early ’90s. They’ve left their teenybopper success behind them, trying to prove, in the years since, that they’re worth taking seriously. 8 p.m. Sunday, Aladdin Theater, 3017 S.E.… Read More »
