The singer/songwriter – who calls St. Paul, Minn., home – will kick things off September 1 in Madison, Wis. The itinerary includes stops at Schubas in Chicago, North Six in Brooklyn, and The Republic in New Orleans.

Oregon-based act Southerly will open at all dates.

The tour will finish up September 29 in Ames, Iowa, and Hanson plans to launch a European tour several weeks later.

Hanson released his second album for Kill Rock Stars last year, and a new disc is scheduled for release in 2007.
