This is the first of my five concert reviews from the Hanson week in London, June 2011. We were a big group of girls from Sweden who travelled together and stayed at the same hostel. On the first concert day we met in the line outside King’s College, where we patiently waited to get our tickets and The Story-VIP card. We made time pass quickly by dancing… After many long hours it was finally time for Middle of Nowhere!
Tomorrow I’m going to London! I’ll be away for a week. Why? Hanson! My favourite band of all time is finally coming back to Europe for some real concerts – a total of 5 concerts in London. One album each evening. There are many songs that I’ve waited for 14 years to hear live, so this will be a journey I’ll never forget!
This is amazing! After all these years of waiting, Hanson is finally coming to Europe. And they will have no less than five concerts in London – between June 5th-10th! In addition to performing all their five studio albums, they will also add The Story – an event for fanclub members where they talk about each album. The pre-sale for fanclub members starts tonight!
I just read the big news – Zac Hanson has got another child, a baby daughter! Junia Rosa Ruth Hanson was born on December 15. How amazing that is!
Apparently, Michael Jackson wrote a song that he intended to give to Hanson, but he never got around to send it to them so the demo remained in a drawer. It was supposedly written during the time when Jackson wrote songs for his album “Invincible”, so it’s quite some years ago. The song, produced and remixed, can be found on the recently released Michal Jackson album.
Finally! I’ve longed for the members only CD from the Hanson fanclub, couldn’t wait to hold it in my hands – and today I finally found it in my letterbox! And because the CD was so delayed this year, Hanson sent another little thing as well, as compensation – so now I have a specially designed key ring.
Could you think of a better way to start your day? I woke up to Hanson’s livestream from the show in San Fransisco. It’s been a long time since I watched a Hanson show (I use to watch videos on YouTube), so it’s so cool to see them live, from the other side of the world.
I’ve started watching the videos from the final 5of5 concert, the one where Hanson premiered their new album “Shout It Out” which will be released in the beginning of June. I really like this one!
I haven’t had the chance yet to watch all the videos from last night’s “Underneath” concert, but at least I’ve watched this one and it is just amazing!
Now the Hanson concert series “5 of 5″ has started. Tonight they performed their album “Middle of Nowhere”. They streamed the whole concert live online and will do the same with all concerts, that’s great! Unfortunately, the concerts don’t start until after 2 am in Sweden…
