What music were you listening to in the 90’s? Maybe some Hanson or maybe The Offspring? Well both acts, while not touring together, have announced concert tours that include B.C.
It’s been 25 years since the brotherly trio Hanson formed and 20 years since they released their hit album Middle of Nowhere, so to celebrate they’ll be heading out on the road for their Middle Of Everywhere 25th Anniversary World Tour.
Hanson will kick things off in June in Europe before launching the North American leg of their tour in September. They begin in Dallas, Texas, on September 12th and wrap up in Houston on October 27th. Hanson will perform in Vancouver, Wednesday, October 18 at the Vogue Theatre at 8 PM. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 18 at 10 AM through www.livenation.com. Charge by Phone 1-888-732-1682
“Making music together for 25 years is a milestone that we had to acknowledge, and what better way to do it than with an anniversary tour,” keyboardist Taylor Hanson said. It is actually Taylor’s 34th birthday today.
Hanson will also be releasing a compilation album, Middle Of Everywhere – The Greatest Hits, which will feature the new track “I Was Born” in addition to their previous hits like “MMMbop.” No release date has yet been set for that project.
