Where’s the love for Hanson?
All over the country, apparently.
To celebrate their 25th anniversary – yeah, let that sink in for a moment – the brothers Hanson will embark on the “Middle of Everywhere” world tour that will stop at Buckhead Theatre at 8 p.m. Sept. 20.
Tickets are $41 and will go on sale at 10 a.m. March 18 through www.ticketmaster.com and by calling 1-800-745-3000.
A Citi cardmember pre-sale begins at 10 a.m. March 15 through 10 p.m. March 17, and a Live Nation/Ticketmaster pre-sale runs from 10 a.m. March 16 through 10 p.m. March 17.
The trio of Zac, Isaac and Taylor Hanson will launch the tour with their annual festival, The Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival, May 21 in their hometown of Tulsa, Okla.
This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Hanson’s breakthrough album, “Middle of Nowhere,” which gave us the indelible “MMMBop.” Later this year, the band will release “Middle of Everywhere – The Greatest Hits,” which includes that worldwide smash, as well as “Where’s the Love,” “This Time Around,” “Penny and Me” and other favorites, as well as the new song, “I Was Born.”
Hanson’s live shows will feature their familiar material alongside deep cuts. In October 2015, the guys showcased their roots with a couple of concerts at Center Stage that focused on cover songs and deep cuts.
