There are still tickets available for Los Angeles and New York... but this was a special tour, and I think Hanson knew early on that there wouldn't be enough time for the tour to be extensive in any way.. and because of that it could only be in major centers so they could make sure of ticket sales. Even the addition of a show in the UK was extra.

While it might be nice to have something like this on a more regular basis, I think we have to be practical.

This was a tour to promote a new Christmas album. But more importantly, when Hanson are on a world tour (as it normally turns out when tour dates run into November and December) they are normally promoting a studio album (not that a Christmas album isn't recorded in a studio but by way of distinction...) -- I think the fact that when shows run that late in the year, the fact that setlists have sometimes included Christmas songs, is the best practical effort at that kind of thing.

I would love more Christmas shows!  It totally put me in the mood for the holidays!

They did mention at one of the MOEs I went to (I want to say Silver Spring?) the possibility of a Christmas themed event. But they said it was just them throwing ideas around and nothing for sure. So It's possible that something Christmas-y may happen again at some point.

the show in NY the other night was basically all my dreams come true.  I so hope they have more Christmas tours in the future!

I'm pretty sure the Friday Toronto concert was one of the best concerts I've ever been too!  It had such energy, and the room just filled with love and magical moments.  I really enjoyed it!

This tour is novel. I'll say that. It's different, which is nice. Hanson have sometimes tended to add a few Christmas songs into tour setlists towards November and December though -- so let's see what happens :)

Personally I'd rather see Hanson focus on writing/touring new music than trotting out the same holiday stuff year after year. It made sense to do a special tour to support the release of FIC, but in general let's leave the "annual Christmas novelty act" title to Michael Buble and Mariah Carey...

Exactly, Kelly. 
If they did that, then they might as well take up residence at a Las Vegas casino. Playing the same thing night after night in some kind of musical snowglobe where everything is the same all the time, providing the same experience to the viewer whether it's July or November.

@fraserette yes I feel the same.  Magical is a perfect word!  The show was so special, and Snowed In has made Christmas, Christmas for me for the last 20 years.  Hearing all those old favorites coupled with the new songs was amazing.  Just a little something special to put everyone in the Christmas spirit.  I hope more people have a chance to experience that too
