American pop-rock trio Hanson will return to Australia and New Zealand this November with their Red Green Blue 2022 tour.
It’s been 25 years since three blonde-haired boys from Oklahoma MMMBop’d their way into the charts and the hearts of people all across the globe and now the beloved 90s pop trio Hanson will be MMMBop’ing their way into Australia with their Red Green Blue 2022 Tour this year.
Brothers Zac, Taylor, and Isaac will arrive down under for the first time since 2019 with headline concerts in Perth, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne as well as Auckland this November.
HANSON will play The Astor Theatre (WA) on Sunday 6 November, Enmore Theatre (NSW) on Wednesday 9 November, Hindley Street Music Hall (SA) on Saturday 12 November, The Fortitude Music Hall (QLD) on Monday 14 November, The Forum Melbourne on Wednesday 16 November and finally Powerstation (NZ) on Saturday 19 November.

The tour is part of the band’s promotion of their newest studio album ‘Red Green Blue’ featuring three solo projects as each brother produces one-third of the album (Taylor’s Red, Isaac’s Green, and Zac’s Blue). The album features the latest singles ‘Child At Heart’, ‘Write You A Song’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Down’.
“This tour is an exciting chance to reunite with our fans all over the world and celebrate three decades of music. We can’t wait to come together with fans across Australia and New Zealand, and share music live on stage once again,” said Taylor Hanson.
Hanson dominated the music scene in the late ‘90s following the release of their 5x ARIA Platinum and 4x RIAA Platinum debut studio album Middle of Nowhere (1997). The album reached #1 in Australia, the UK, Germany and Taiwan, #2 on the Billboard 200 and #4 in New Zealand, selling 10 million copies world-wide with hit singles ‘MMMBop’, ‘Where’s the Love’, ‘I Will Come to You’, ‘Weird’ and ‘Thinking of You’. This was followed by their sophomore album Snowed In – a Christmas record that became the best-selling holiday album for 1997 in the US, peaking at #3 on the ARIA Albums Chart and #12 on the official New Zealand Music Chart.
In 2017 HANSON celebrated their 25th anniversary when touring Australia and New Zealand with their Middle of Everywhere World Tour, celebrating two decades of music and the amazing community of fans – new and old – who have supported them throughout their career. They most recently toured Australia in 2019 with their String Theory Tour, which saw them take the stage alongside a symphony orchestra, through a special collaboration with Academy Award-winning arranger David Campbell.
