A Week Of Hosting The World

Last week was an incredible week in HANSONLand with our annual HDay gathering in Tulsa leading up to The Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival. As we have been anticipating for months, this year's activities were the biggest and best to date with four straight nights of music including a special sold out String Theory concert and The Hop Jam festival and many activities around town for music and arts fans to enjoy.

We saw guests from all over the globe and around the US. From Norway to Brazil, Australia to Chile, Germany to the UK, and literally Tulsa to Tokyo. We are so proud of our team and the many volunteer leaders who are a part of our global network of street teams for helping us organize and host these many events and we're still on a high from the awesome events we shared with you.

Some of the biggest news of the week was our message to the guests in attendance that YOU can expect new music and the launch of a world tour in 2020, PLUS we plan to record multiple projects over the summer, with plans to release brand new music in 2020 and 2021…Yes That’s right, new album(s) coming.

Plans are also being put in place for a series of shows this fall in the US in addition to the one off events at some festivals. The coming late in the year tour might be the first chance to hear new music early. These concerts and full plans are still in the works, but of course our members and most engaged supporters will the be first to know (and the first to get tickets and pre-sales).

Over these many years, we know our musical vision and our band's story and purpose is something not fully understood by all that have heard of our band. What we embrace heading into our next 25 years is the celebration of those (you) who are confident in our purpose which we share with you, forging new ground and inspiring life and light through music. We are fueled by the possibilities, and as long as we are together, we can take on the world. That message has inspired our working title for the coming project, HANSON, Against The World  tour and music project. To be even more clear HANSON does not exist without the support from great music fans so this project and what’s ahead is truly US Against The World and we can’t wait to go on this journey with you. Prepare for a look inside the creative process as we head into the summer, and more sharing of vision and new projects set to unfold.

We’re looking forward to a bit of rest for the Memorial Day weekend ahead because last week we hosted those from around the world, and next week we officially begin our quest to take on the world one song at a time! The Journey Is The Destination.

Have a great week!

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

Thank You doesn't seem like a good enough phrase, but thank you for everything. For music, for Hday (it was my first and I loved it all) for being you. Can't wait to take on the world with you. Bring it on!

Intern class of 2019 thanks you #teamzissou

It feels like it's been YOU and US against THE WORLD since 1997, so the title of the new album is fitting.  We look forward to any new adventure you can dream up -- know that you'll never be alone on the journey. --  we've got your back.  ALWAYS!  Thanks for the music.

An all new album (or two) is the best news ever!  I'm so excited to see what you guys cook up.

I just want to thank you for the amazing time in Tulsa, I had the best time of my life. I can't wait till next year!



Thank you for an amazing week in Tulsa! We too are still on high from Hanson Day and the Hop Jam. Can't wait to hear what's next and of course once a Hanson Fan always a Hanson Fan :)

I'm just trying to figure out how you guys plan to top Hday & Hop Jam next year.  You made the mistake of spoiling us with tons of concerts, an amazing Hop Jam lineup, and a ridiculously good members EP.  The bar is high, fellas!  Can't wait!



Do you think you guys could do a live stream at some point to explain all of your upcoming projects to those of us who were unable to attend Hanson Day? I’m looking forward to all the new music you have planned! You guys are seriously non-stop!

they didnt explain the new projects to us in tulsa. what they said in the newsletter is almost exactly what was said during state of the band


i cant wait yes  hanson  thank u for it all and i  cant wait for  buffalo



Thank you for how hard you work to put out amazing music that truly means something! I was so bummed about cancelling my trip but hearing what’s ahead gets me pumped for the future ! 



Looking forward to the new music and upcoming events. It would be a dream to have an event in Tokyo to coincide with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. I’ll be happy to be a tour guide to show other fans around, and be there to translate.



@TheWanderer Oh, ok. Good to know, thanks!



Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the absolute time of my life I had last week. From inviting us to and making us feel welcome in Tulsa, to arranging fun and engaging activities, to the music and being present and available to us. It was so much fun and I am so glad I ticked it off my bucket list at long last...and I think just quietly, I've put a return trip back on my BL. 

Thank you and enjoy your well deserve rest. 



All two of my thumbs are up! If I had more, they would be up!                                                                                                                                                                              "Some of the biggest news of the week was our message to the guests in attendance that YOU can expect new music and the launch of a world tour in 2020, PLUS we plan to record multiple projects over the summer, with plans to release brand new music in 2020 and 2021…Yes That’s right, new album(s) coming."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 GREAT NEWS!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Btw, your choice of a working title really hit a personal heart chord for me, seems like that motto can sum up my entire personal life journey thus far so I can relate & respect on many levels.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I likewise, look forward to continuing on this journey with you.  Thank you & all the best!



Thank you so much for all that you share with us. Making it back to Tulsa this year was a dream come true and, as usual, you did not disappoint. Your music is woven into my soul and I am so ready for whatever comes next. It will always be US against the world!

I did not go to Tulsa, but this was my first Hanson Day as a fan and I truly enjoyed all the posts on FB and instagram and - where ever else I could find them.  Thank you to fans who responded and pointed me in the right direction to find more videos/pictures.  Thank you to the Hanson support teams who work tirelessly to assist in setting all this up/running the registrations, stores etc.   I cannot imagine how much work there was involved for this series of events!

And most of all thank you to Isaac, Taylor and Zac - for sharing your music, energy and passion with all of us around the world!  (smiley faces and hearts here --- new website wishes)



Thank you guys so much for these events. my 5 days in Tulsa was awsome and I really enjoyed it!!

I went from Tokyo to Tulsa for HansonDay and HopJam. It was the very first time. I had dreamed of it for many years and finally my dreams come true!!

I thought Tulsa was a nice place. Especially for music, art and needless to say, HANSON lovers. 

I want to visit HANSON Land again ^^
