Musical Ride Tour • DATES.

Fans Pick Set List In Online Voting For Each Concert Tour Continues to UK/Europe and Latin America 
July 5th, New York - Pop-rock trio HANSON officially announce their 2011 Musical Ride Tour, a 15-year career spanning tour, where fans will be given the chance to vote online to choose the album they want to hear the band play each night. Voting will start on Hanson.net on Monday July 11th. The shows will also include career highlights, and music from their acclaimed 5th studio album Shout It Out, featuring the smash single “Give A Little”. The 40+ city US tour will run from September 4th through November 1st, before heading to the UK, Europe and Latin America.

The Musical Ride Tour announcement comes amidst a busy summer schedule promoting the band’s summer smash “Give A Little” in the US and the UK, right on the heels of a sold-out London installment of the band’s 5of5 five-night concert series. The series, which featured each of HANSON’s albums performed in their entirety in five consecutive concerts, received critical praise and overwhelming fan response, and was preceded by the original sold-out series in New York in the Spring of 2010, and produced the 5-disc DVD box set, 5of5 available exclusively on Hanson.net.

“Much like the 5of5 concert series both in New York and London which blew us away, this whole tour is about looking back in order to go forward”, says Taylor.
Adds drummer Zac “This tour is a unique way of saying thank you to the many fans that have followed the band for years, who will, for the first time, get a chance to help shape the show they see each night”.

The tour also builds on the band’s reputation as a dynamic live act, with acclaim from indie cred stalwarts The Village Voice who called them “The finest straight up rock band in America”. The model of this tour’s fan engagement is in step with the band’s history of innovating online and focusing on a direct-to-fan relationship throughout their career. Previously the band has hosted opening band contests for local independent artists, nightly livestreams of performances, chats and interviews, and custom mobile check-in’s at shows.

The band’s 5th studio album Shout It Out debuted at #2 on the Billboard independent charts to critical acclaim, and has seen increased fan fervor with the infectious summer smash “Give A Little”, and the soul-inspired “Thinkin ’Bout Somethin’” with it’s iconic homage to the Blues Brothers film and classic rock'n'roll and soul music.
