Remember Hanson? If you don't then maybe this will help jog your memory: MMMBop. Everyone who's lived through the '90s knows exactly where that quasi-gibberish word you just read came from and has definitely sung along to it. Well, ladies and gents, get ready to have MMMBop stuck in your heads again!
Hanson, made up of brothers Taylor, Isaac and Zac, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and is marking the occasion with a world tour this summer! Hard to believe that the brotherly trio have been around for a quarter of a century. I can still picture their baby faces and flowing blonde locks as they goof around the streets of LA in the MMMBop video.
“Making music together for 25 years is a milestone that we had to acknowledge, and what better way to do it than with an anniversary tour,” said keyboardist Taylor Hanson in a statement.
His brother Isaac Hanson added, “This year is not only about the two decades of music, it’s about celebrating the incredible community of fans who have been with us, singing along year after year”.
The band announced the news on their website and shared that tickets for first leg of the Middle of Everywhere of Tour (an ode to their debut album, Middle of Nowhere) 25th Anniversary Tour. They'll be MMMhoping all over the world with stops in North America, Europe, Australia and South America. The trio will kick off the tour in May at The Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival which will take place in their hometown of Tulsa, OK.
