7 Reasons Why I’m Going to the Hanson Concert (and Why You Should Too)


There are a lot of big concerts lined up in Manila this 2012. I actually just found out today that Avril Lavigne is going to have a concert next month. I adore her music and her style, and it is one of my dreams to hear her sing live.

But…I’m saving all my screaming energy (not to forget my ticket money) for Hanson! Oh yeah!  I’m so sorry, Avril. Maybe I’ll catch your concert next time.

So why am I going to the Hanson Shout it Out Concert? Well, actually, this was a no-brainer for me. The moment I knew that they were coming to the Philippines, I was automatically booked for March 30th.

I’m very excited about this concert, so I really couldn’t help myself. I just need to share! These are only some of the few reasons why I’m going. Hopefully, they may excite you as well. 🙂

1. It’s a freaking dream come true.

I have been a Hanson fan for a very long time now. How long? I was in sixth grade when I first bought their Middle of Nowhere album. And it’s been more than six years since I graduated from college. (Can you figure out how old I am? :)) My pubescent dreams were filled with Zac’s adorable,sheepish grin. So seeing them live is definitely a dream come true.

2.I’m going with Fanson friends.

When I was in high school, my friends and I started a group called The Hanson Sisters. 🙂 And I’m going to the concert with them! I haven’t seen them in awhile, so the concert will be like a reunion, too.

3. I want to be reminded of how awesome the 90’s music is.

The 90’s music was what I grew up with, and I love it even up to now. It was the era of MTV and bad hair days. I used to watch MTV’s request show Most Wanted, and I freaked out every time someone requests a Hanson song. I do love today’s music, but I must say the 90’s music was legendary. Going to the Hanson concert is going to be a reminder that real music can stand the test of time.

4. I want to feel like a child again.

Hanson was a huge chunk of my childhood. Through Hanson’s lyrics, I felt love, compassion, truth, and innocence. And if I hear them sing live, I’m hopeful that I’ll be transported to those days of hope and innocence.

5. I want to see hot rockstar daddies.

Yes, they’re all daddies now. And I’m sure a lot of ladies would admit that they ‘re even hotter now that they have toddlers. (Or is just me?) 😉

Here’s a sweet slideshow of Hanson’s family:

6. I want to meet other Fansons.

The Hanson fans I meet are passionate, interesting, and energetic. Now, if Araneta is going to be filled with these people’s energy, I certainly want to be part of that crowd.

7. Hanson’s music is not only fun, but it also touches your soul!

The world knew about Hanson through Mmmbop. But of course, their music has evolved over the years. With their Shout It Out album, I’m expecting a lot of swayin’, dancin’, and screamin’ in the concert. It’s already fun in my head, and I’m sure it’s a lot more fun in the actual concert.
