In celebration of the band’s 25th Anniversary, multi-Grammy nominated pop-rock trio HANSON today announce the Australia and New Zealand leg of their Middle Of Everywhere World Tour which includes Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Auckland and more.
“Making music together for 25 years is a milestone that we had to acknowledge, and what better way to do it than an anniversary tour,” said keyboardist Taylor Hanson. Added guitarist Isaac Hanson, “This year is not only about the two decades of music, it’s about celebrating the incredible community of fans who have been with us, singing along year after year”.
In addition to HANSON’s 25th Anniversary, 2017 is the 20th Anniversary of the band’s debut release Middle Of Nowhere, led by the iconic global smash hit ‘Mmmbop’. This June, fans will be treated to performances featuring some of the group’s best-known material alongside fan favourites spanning their extensive catalogue.
Coinciding with their benchmark 25th year together, over which the group has released six studio albums and sold over 16 million albums, later this year, the band has confirmed they will release Middle Of Everywhere – The Greatest Hits, a comprehensive collection which includes hit singles “Mmmbop”, “Where’s The Love”, “Weird ”, “This Time Around”, “If Only”, “Penny And Me”, “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’”, “Get The Girl Back”, plus their brand new single “I Was Born”.
HANSON will land on Australia and New Zealand shores straight off the back of UK and European dates, which are selling out fast.
