So last night I went to a Hanson concert. As in 90s MMMBop Hanson:
From about the time I was 13 until about 16 I was a huge fan. To the point where I would line up for hours for concert tickets, buy every t-shirt I could get my hands on and plaster my room in posters. While I knew they continued to make music, I kinda lost track of them after their 2000 This Time Around CD release. Sidebar, did you know that all 3 are now married with multiple kids? Definitely makes me feel old!
It wasn’t until about 6 months ago when I got back into them thanks to a girlfriend who had an extra ticket for their Toronto show. Her husband had reluctantly agreed to go but I had no problem taking it off his hands.
When I was a kid, I liked them because they had catchy music and were cute. It wasn’t until last night that I truly appreciated how friggin talented they are! They write their own stuff, each play multiple instruments and can rock a mean a capella!
The show was so much fun and totally brought me back! They played a good mix of old and new stuff and I got a full on workout dancing the whole time.
Thanks again Queenie for allowing me to share the experience with you!
Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, yes, they did play MMMBop! 🙂
