Backstage Photos from Hanson’s Boston Show

We joined the band backstage Sunday night at the House of Blues, one of the stops on their Middle of Everywhere World Tour.

Fans lined up around the block to wait for this sold-out Boston show. Hanson’s latest single “I Was Born” celebrates the band’s positive outlook and optimism, and it resonated through the venue as guests smiled ear to to ear during their concert Sunday night at the House of Blues. The three brothers have been performing for 25 years, and have sold more than 16 million albums. Hanson is now on their Middle of Everywhere World Tour, and later this fall, they’ll release their Christmas album “Finally It’s Christmas.”
