I'm really hoping to go again this year but not sure it will happen. Every year keeps getting better and better.
Back To The Island 2019 was amazing! Big thank you to our friends Jacob and Lewis for adding their musical talents to this years festivities. We hope everyone had an amazing time listening to music and playing games and we hope everyone got home safe, even if going home means ice and snow like we are living with in Tulsa today. BTTI is something we look forward to each year, so even though it hasn’t been announced just yet, you have our permission to day dream about sun and waterfalls and going Back To The Island in 2020.
We are officially in the lull before the storm. In just two days we will board a plane and take the String Theory Tour to the EU and from there to Australia. Needless to say, we are very excited to bring this show to more fans (and some really iconic venues). It has been a labor of love to bring this music from concept to reality, but each time we play it, we are reminded that all the hours and late nights were worth it. With the continuation of The String Theory Tour almost upon us, this week we released the String Theory Special Edition Color Vinyl. If you happen to be an audiophile forever in search of a new addition to you record collection… you're welcome!
In other news, you probably know we announced that HANSON Day 2019 will be held May 16th -18th. In addition to the free concert on Saturday night, HANSON Day has grown to include a full schedule of events that include bowling, painting classes, karaoke… yeah Don’t Stop Believing is our go to song as well. The HANSON Day schedule is going up Monday, so if you are thinking about coming, make sure to check back then. This should give you a few days to connect with other friends making the trip (for group activity planning) before event tickets go on sale on Thursday the 14th. All H.net members are invited to attend and share the weekend enjoying music, and maybe event a little beer on Sunday at The Hop Jam.

I am anxiously awaiting the announcement about BTTI 2020. I have never been before, but I am most definitely going in 2020!! ❤️
So relieved to hear BTTI 2020 is a go. After planning our trip from Australia across America to Jamaica for this years BTTI I got the devastating news of my brothers passing. We made it to San Francisco for a total of 12 hrs before we received the call. Turns out the countdown on my ph BTTI 2019 has all this time been the countdown to his funeral. While nothing will bring him back this music is once again the pillar of strength to get me through. I vow to make it next year, in memorial of my dear brother, surrounded by my ppl and our music. Thanks for reading, just needed to (over)share.
So so happy to know it will be a BTTI 2020 ! It's one of my biggest dream to be a part of it, Nevers came true so far but probably in 2020
Oh, Penny. My heart goes out to you. I believe this state of being is not an accident, there is a purpose for this life and that his soul homeward bound. Your bond as his sister was no accident, either.

So sorry for your loss Penny!! ❤️
My condolences Penny. I lost my sister in December. I felt like going to BTTI was in her honor because she would have wanted me to go. She always encouraged me to follow my heart, and reminded me that life is too short to not go. BTTI was the first step in her honor, Hanson Day is the next. I'm sure your brother felt the same and I encourage you to follow your heart in his honor!
