Australia’s response to the announcement of its leg of HANSON’s 25th Anniversary World Tourlast Monday was overwhelming; fans were elated at the chance to celebrate this incredible milestone with the band that Faster Louder called “your childhood heroes”. Pedestrian.tv comforted fans who thought HANSON might have forgotten Australia in their worldwide tour announcement, telling readers to “set aside your fears, the boys will be back in town in June”.
The enthusiastic response to the tour announcement, from media and fans alike, was this week matched with the same excitement as tickets went on sale for the national Australian tour on Monday morning.
HANSON’s first Melbourne show on Sunday 18th June sold out in a matter of minutes, with a second show at The Forum on Monday 19th June, added almost immediately and sold out within hours.
Sydney’s Enmore Theatre and The Tivoli in Brisbane were not far behind, selling out the same day that they went on sale. To meet the unprecedented demand, a second Sydney show at the Enmore Theatre has been added on Thursday 22nd June and will go on sale at 9am on Friday 31st March.
There are limited tickets still available for HANSON’s shows in Perth, Adelaide, Gold Coast and Auckland, so fans are encouraged to act fast if they haven’t already secured their tickets.
The Middle of Everywhere world tour will be a celebration multi-Grammy nominated pop-rock trio’s 25th Anniversary as a band and also commemorates 20 years since band’s debut release Middle Of Nowhere, led by the iconic global smash hit ‘Mmmbop’.
Coinciding with their benchmark 25th year together, over which the group has released six studio albums and sold over 16 million albums, later this year, the band has confirmed they will release Middle Of Everywhere – The Greatest Hits, a comprehensive collection which includes hit singles “Mmmbop”, “Where’s The Love”, “Weird ”, “This Time Around”, “If Only”, “Penny And Me”, “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’”, “Get The Girl Back”, plus their brand new single “I Was Born”.
The world tour also includes concerts in Europe and North America and South America. The rest of the world responded with the same eagerness as their Australian counterparts, with many shows selling out within hours of going on sale.
