Following a sold out 25th Anniversary World Tour and Greatest Hits release, Grammy nominated multi-platinum pop-rock trio HANSON is beginning the next 25 years with a musical project unmatched in their history. HANSON’s String Theory Symphonic Tour will land in Australia in February-March 2019, with stops including the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Australia, with a night at the iconic Sydney Opera House. See full tour dates below.
String Theory brings together an exciting collaboration of song craftsmanship and symphonic majesty, framing the established trio’s music through a special collaboration with Academy Award winning arranger David Campbell, spawning both a world tour featuring the band playing live with Symphony Orchestras, and a studio album, to be released on November 9.
“String Theory is fully polished and professional… HANSON’s music is as polished and catchy as it ever was, and last night’s audience was thrilled” The Columbus Dispatch
HANSON’s most ambitious musical project to date, String Theory features songs spanning the band’s entire career from ‘MmmBop’ to ‘Where’s The Love’, ‘This Time Around’ and more, plus brand new or never-released-to-the-public songs like ‘Reaching For The Sky’ and ‘Siren Call’, which premiered last week.
“Siren Call” casts a fittingly dramatic mood with Zac Hanson providing lead vocals over a swell of strings and the thump of his drums. While the song has a distinctly orchestral feel, HANSON inject the song with a pop energy that comes out best in the brothers’ pristine harmonies.”Rolling Stone
During the past quarter-century, Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson have made a significant mark in music, beginning with their meteoric rise off the back of 1997 global smash ‘MmmBop’. Their debut album Middle Of Nowhere spawned a string of Top 40 singles, followed by countless radio hits, five more studio albums, multiple Grammy nominations and record sales exceeding 16 million.

The group founded their own independent 3CG Records 15 years ago, positioning them among the most successful independent bands to date, and since then they have diversified their brand with the founding of the Hanson Brothers Beer Company and The Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival based in their hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
String Theory is the next frontier for HANSON, telling a story of aspiration and fortitude against the odds. The music resonates with authenticity, coming from a group whose signature is never to chase trends, but instead to stay focused on their melodic artistry, establishing themselves as one of the few artists of their generation able to continually reinvent and reimagine their music, which has helped them to maintain an active global fan base over 25 years after their founding.
Following extensive North American dates, HANSON will deliver their unique String Theory tour to some of Europe & Australia’s finest venues in early-2019, a treat for fans around the world.

I'm curious about the non-symphony show. Why this tour is not getting to certain places because it's expensive to play with an orchestra but in this list there's a ST show without it?

Yay, I think we'll be hitting Belgium and the Netherlands, a perfect timing for my winter break. Slightly disappointed at seeing no Nordic dates, but it is what it is. Surprised to see so many UK dates, too bad I can't make any of those most likely.

Can't wait to see the London show (and hopefully Australia too if the stars align...)

Posted Sep 24, 2018   05:01:25 PM

thank you for coming to Australia again!
I believe this is also the first time over and it wont be winter!

Enjoy Australia & the beaches if you can.

I hate living in Perth, Australia!

Thanks so much for coming back to Australia! So great to see a Canberra date.

Gold Coast and Brisbane, I'm there! Just in time for my birthday!

Since I'm getting questions about it, the Nottingham show is not a String Theory show. Consider it like one of the many special shows we've done this year.

My excitement level is off the charts with this announcement!!! See you on the 9th March in Brisbane guys! <3

Thanks Leigh, wondering why on the Calendar it's on the ST list of shows though...

It's a happy, happy day!  Thank you so much from coming back to Aus.  ;)  I'm so sorry if you're in Perth or Adelaide and you'll miss out.  Jump on a plane if you can.

I'm so excited for the Syd Opera House.  It's going to be amazing for us all!  Can't wait.

Thanks Leigh! That is what I thought.

Really stunned by the extent of the shows. The last tour had I think one stop in the UK. Anyhow... I really thought that Norway had been confirmed a few months ago by Taylor to a fan. Anyway... I'm sure people who are able to, will travel anyway

Posted Sep 24, 2018   11:32:22 PM

Cannot wait for the Melbourne show!! Thank you for coming down under again :)

Sooo excited for this!!!!

"Thanks Leigh, wondering why on the Calendar it's on the ST list of shows though..."

Because we don't have a place for special shows in 2019 yet. :)
