HANSON LAUNCH STRING THEORY

HANSON LAUNCH LANDMARK SYMPHONIC TOUR AND ALBUM, STRING THEORY

TOUR INCLUDES NORTH AMERICA DATES IN 2018, INTERNATIONAL DATES IN 2019

DC, PITTSBURGH, NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, BOSTON, CHICAGO & MORE

NEW US DATES ON SALE JULY 27TH, ALBUM RELEASE FALL 2018


July 23rd 2018 - Following a sold out 25th Anniversary World Tour and Greatest Hits release, Grammy nominated multi-platinum pop-rock trio HANSON is beginning their next 25 years with a musical project unmatched in their history, String Theory symphonic tour and album set to launch this summer and continue through Spring 2019.

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.

HANSON’s most ambitious musical project to date features songs spanning the band’s career, including some of their best known material (“MmmBop”, “Where’s The Love”, “This Time Around” and more) alongside brand new or never-released-to-the-public songs (“Reaching For The Sky”, “Battle Cry”, “Breaktown”, “No Rest For The Weary” and more) which tell a story of aspiration, despair, fortitude and ultimately a return to optimism.

Fans can discover String Theory both as an album and as a concert, with North American dates starting Summer 2018 and running through Summer 2019, and music released in Fall 2018.

The Tour brings String Theory to the stage with many leading symphonies at some of the most iconic venues, among them the National Symphony Orchestra at the Filene Center at Wolftrap and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Heinz Hall, already announced earlier this year and on sale now. New dates include Los Angeles at The Greek Theatre, New York at the Beacon Theatre and Chicago at the Chicago Theatre, on sale July 27th. US and Canada dates continue throughout the Spring of 2019, with international dates to be announced later this month taking the tour to Europe, Australia, and more in Spring 2019.

The album features brand new and rearranged recordings with full symphonic orchestration, and will be available in digital and physical formats, with special content and packages available via the band’s official website www.Hanson.net. The band recordings were produced by HANSON and mixed by Grammy winning Producer and Engineer Jim Scott (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, Wilco, Sting). The symphonic composition was recorded in Prague, lead by arranger David Campbell. New HANSON recordings were engineered by Craig Alvin (Kacey Musgraves) with additional production and engineering credits including past collaborators of the band, Danny Kortchmar (Don Henley, Billy Joel, James Taylor), Joe Chicarelli (The Strokes, Frank Zappa, The White Stripes), Steve Churchyard (The Eagles, Train, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift), Greg Wells (Mika, Rufus Wainwright, Adele) and CJ Eiriksson (U2, Matchbox Twenty, Phish).

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 craftsmanship, 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 fanbase over 25 years after their founding.

I’ll be pretty disappointed if Atlanta is a short set. Sound of Light is among my top songs for the setlist and from what I’ve heard that’s one they didn’t play in the shorter concert.

Been waiting for an LA show! So happy to see it added and on a date I can go!

I was wondering what's the difference between the shows with the orchestra name (ie Nashville Symphony) and the ones that says Live with Orchestra. Before the first show in Columbus, Zac said in a blog "It should be said there are some cases where the we will play a shorter version of String Theory esspecially when we are playing with a named symphony as part of their POP sieres rather then a case where we are hireing the orchestra ourselves."...

From this blog, I'm assuming that the shows performed with the unnamed orchestra are the full version of String Theory because this is the orchestra hired by the guys. Am I right?  @Stephanie


I've been wondering about this, too...  I hope that's what it means.  (So "Live with Orchestra" essentially means they've hired members of the orchestra in whichever city the performance is scheduled, but since the shows are not considered part of that symphony's regular season, they can't name it, I guess(?)

This is a good point that didn't cross my mind before and I really hope that that's the case too. In other thread someone said Leigh doesn't have a clue about the difference yet but I'm looking foward for futher info on this matter. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)
