I posted a similar message on A Facebook group last night after the experience of the Seattle crowds complete disrespect for not only both opening acts but also for Hanson themselves. The amount of loud talking throughout all artists sets was ridiculous and just a complete disrespect for the bands and their music. All of these musicians are putting themselves out on stage and performing for you! So having loud conversations that can be heard over the music is completely rude and disrespectful.
Last night, both Paul and Zac asked the crowd to quiet down and no one listened. It was extremely sad.
Then you had Taylor performing his brand new song we hadn’t heard before; a nice quiet solo right? Nope. You had girls whooping and screaming at him through the entire thing. You can scream that you love him all you want, but save it for between songs.
I just wanted to put this message out there in hopes that anyone going to any shows in the future (Hanson or not) will remember that it’s very rude to go to a show and spend the entire time ruining it for everyone else this way. Also, I don’t care if you’re drunk. That’s not an excuse. If you’re so drunk that you don’t know what you’re doing, then there are other issues there.
