Local pop-rocker Hanson lent a helping hand to touring artist Sara Bareilles on Tuesday night during her Tulsa tour stop.

The trio of brothers set her up with a stage full of gear so she could perform her scheduled concert at Cain's Ballroom, said Cain's Ballroom co-owner Alice Rodgers.

Most of Bareilles' band's gear was buried or destroyed after Saturday's catastrophic stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair, which she had just finished playing when the stage went down. The stage collapse killed five people and injured dozens more.

Bareilles' band showed appreciation by donning "I Heart Hanson" tees.

Also, Hanson rolls through Cain's Ballroom on Sept. 20 on the "Musical Ride" tour. Tickets are $26, plus fees, available at all Reasor's grocery stores, Starship Records and Ida Red. Charge by phone at 918-584-2306 or buy online at
