HANSON ANNOUNCE LIVE STREAM ON YAHOO LIVE

Sep 30, 2015 | HANSON

HANSON announces an exclusive Yahoo live stream of their Chicago concert on October 8 at 7:30pm CT. Fans can catch the live stream on the Live Nation Channel on Yahoo (www.yahoo.com/live) or through the Yahoo Screen App on mobile (iOS & Android) and connected devices (Apple TV, Roku, Xbox).

After two years without a North American tour, HANSON is returning with a special 10-city tour across the US and Canada, featuring 2 concerts in each of the 10 major markets. Paul McDonald will be supporting each night one of the tour and CARRICK will be supporting each night two. The tour marks the launch of the band's craft beer, Mmmhops Pale Ale, in new markets across the country.

"This tour is all about celebrating our musical journey, starting with a night of cover songs that have inspired us, followed by a night of rare tunes and fan favorites. Each night will be a totally unique experience," said Isaac Hanson.

In addition to the two special concerts, at each tour stop the band's Hanson Brothers Beer will be presenting an after-party, which will feature a special DJ set from Taylor Hanson and showcase Mmmhops Pale Ale in select cities. This fall will mark the first time the award-winning beer has been available in many of the tour markets.

"This is a special tour so we felt it deserved a special party, plus we are thrilled to be able to share our Mmmhops Pale Ale with a lot of our fans for the first time," said Taylor Hanson.

Tickets are still on sale as a 2-night package giving all attendees a complete musical experience. The after-party will be available to concert goers as an add-on to the ticket package.

The band will also continue its Take The Walk Campaign, which fights extreme poverty in Africa through one-mile barefoot walk events and grassroots fundraising. Walks are lead by the band, and will be held before concerts in each city on the tour.

Since the release and world tour behind 2013's acclaimed sixth studio album ANTHEM, HANSON has been working with a number of other artists, including a collaboration with Blues Traveler, 'Top Of The World' released in Spring 2015, and the infectious pop song 'Unbelievable' with Owl City, released in July.

This is such great news! Glad that fans who couldn't make it in-person will get to experience a show. Very cool of the band to make this happen.

I can't decide if I should watch it :x I'm just going to the NYC shows...part of me wants to be surprised/not know what I'm going to hear before I hear it. But on the other hand...seems like blasphemy to willingly skip a chance to watch Hanson perform #FOMO #firstworldproblems

Great news!  I'm so happy for the fans who can't be a part of this tour! 

P.S.  You might want to tweak the walk message (above).  Wasn't the Chicago walk canceled?

Kelly I'm the same. Not sure if I want to "spoil" my upcoming shows but not sure I want to miss out either.  I'll probably end up watching as long as it works with my schedule that night.

@kellylizbeth I'm having the exact same dilemma!  Like, exactly the same b/c I'll be at the NYC shows, too.  Oh the struggles we face LOL.

Amazing news, I'm genuinely happy for all of my dearest friends that won't attend any concert this fall!!

Fortunately, I'll be in NY and I'm so grateful I have the opportunity to travel to see you guys. 

And I'll tune in on Oct 8th for sure!! I won't waste the chance to see a Hanson performance (:

I don't have the yahoo thing. I went on the website through the link and tried to watch other Hanson videos but it didn't work.

This live stream will be the best birthday gift EVER! I'm so excited to whatch it! :D

Posted Sep 30, 2015   07:49:24 PM

I didn't know Yahoo has livestreams, but cool... :)

Birthday gift? Will it be your birthday?

Posted Sep 30, 2015   09:15:09 PM

@kellylizbeth im in the same boat! I'm goin to the Atl shows but i want to be surprised but at the same time its hanson and i wanna see this stream! what a dilemma!

Posted Sep 30, 2015   09:25:03 PM

I was thinking the same as eek_a_mouse. They should correct that they are doing walks in every city on the tour since they won't be doing it in Chicago. Some might show up expecting it to happen there,

I'm already with Yahoo conveniently but it's pretty easy to make an account if you don't have one.

You think there's much point in creating a Yahoo account if you're only going to use it to watch that kinda thing?

I can't wait! :D
