It’s official. We’re trading in our instruments and becoming bandits! Last night we played our first ever show in Nottingham and it seems like all anyone could talk about was Robin Hood. We were singing “we are men, we’re men in tights, TIGHT TIGHTS!” all day, and talking Kevin Costner and how smooth Bryan Adams voice is… It was a special day and a really great show. Though this is a String Theory Tour, our concert in Nottingham was a straight up rock show. If there ever was a moment when we knew where the love was, last night was it. Playing Rock City on Valentine’s day, right as we hit the chorus of Where’s The Love, like a well oiled machine the audience threw their hands into the air holding hearts and singing along. It was a great moment. It can be hard to be away from home on holidays and the like, but cool moments like this make it worth it. Thanks for sharing Valentine’s Day with us. Tonight we play in London, then Glasgow and then off across the channel and then to Australia.
In other news, HANSON Day 2019 tickets went on sale yesterday! We had an overwhelming response, which overwhelmed and crashed the site (tear*). We know this was frustrating for many of you (ourselves included), but we hope it won’t weigh too negatively on your HANSON Day plans. We are doing everything we can to make this a really great year. We already added two additional painting classes to meet demand and are looking at how we might make room for a few more people at Karaoke (don’t ask, we will let you know if they let us demo the back stage at Vanguard). As many of you know, this will be the most music filled HANSON Day to date with one concert everyday. Thursday Storytellers, Friday String Theory, Saturday Members Concert, and then of course, The Hop Jam on Sunday. We are going to be exhausted come Monday morning, but it is gonna be worth it! We look forward to seeing you there.
Isaac, Taylor And Zac
