 “This tour is all about celebrating our musical journey, starting with a night of cover songs that have inspired us, followed by a night of rare tunes and fan favorites.  Each night will be a totally unique experience,” Isaac Hanson said.

Hanson will bring the suds to the blast.  The brothers’ after-parties featuring Taylor Hanson performing a special DJ set will showcase the band’s Mmmhops Pale Ale, which is debuting in several of the tour’s cities.
