  • MOE #8 is in the mail!!
  • Hanson attended the songwriters' hall of fame induction awards and dinner. Isaac and Taylor were arm-in-arm with the girls from M2M. This probably means nothing because dating is natural for guys who are 19 and 17. Girls who were there reported that Ike looked pretty uncomfortable with his date, the blonde. Tay looked at ease and was talking up a storm with his date, the brunette. When holding hands though, Tay did not gaze once upon her. Both girls received a kiss from the boys and then proceeded up to their hotel room to talk. Hanson will next see M2M on the 29th. They met the girls 3 weeks ago in Spain. Christopher Sabec refuses to say anymore about it.
  • Hanson will be on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday, August 7th on NBC.
  • On June 23, Hanson will be on VH1's The List.
  • In the issue of Teen with Jessica Simpson on the cover, there is a Hanson enhanced CD. It's approximately 5-10 minutes long, and it's about the making of the album.
  • Hanson's tour in Europe is scheduled to start on October 1st and end on October 31st.
  • Hanson's tour in the U.S. is scheduled to start on July 24th and end on September 30th.
  • Hanson will be performing in St. Louis, MO, on June 23rd.
  • Hanson will be on MuchMusic Spotlight on June 22nd at 6:30pm. The show will repeat on June 22nd at 11:30pm and June 23rd at 6:30am.
  • The tour WILL NOT be cancled! It was all just a big hoax that someone started.
  • It is very serious about the canceled concert tour, although, I do believe they wouldn't cancel it. Remember, they even quoted years ago "Even if it was one fan that liked us, we'd still put on a show." Now the BIG FAULT of all of the low sales is because of all us impatient fans that couldn't help but sneak around the Internet to find the new clips and wav formats of any of their new material that was or wasn't going to be on the album. I have rated over 87% of Hanson fans that snook onto Napster and other places to download and listen to some of the songs. BIG MISTAKE we all have made! Even Hanson smelled something fishy going on when they performed at MTV studios for the first time being back. The winning fans gave that clue away by knowing all the lyrics and how it was sung, to the second song they had performed; "If Only". Hanson knew that they have heard their song somewhere before. Wonder were? - It's the big Napster thing alright! Napster has caused not only Hanson to go down in sales, but Metallica, Dr. Dre, and other big artist too. Wonder why Hanson made less than one million sales? Hanson fans had all the songs downloaded from Napster, or Hanson fan sites, and never thought to buy their album after they repeatedly repeated the songs over and over till they got sick of the same stuff. I would like to have the fans think about spending that extra $11-15 on Hanson's new album, even if you know and already had made the mistake of downloading the songs from a website or Napster. You should give it towards Hanson's hard work for making the album, and not only that- but for an apology as well. The only way Hanson will ever stay around is if the fans support them, and that is by money. You may think, "why money? They're rich!" - The real thing about the music business is only one word MONEY. It's not glamerous as everyone thinks or says. It's a hard process, and when you make $200,000,000 (for example) from record sales, only about 5% of that goes in your pocket from that one album being sold! The rest of the money goes for promotion, transportation, hotels, concerts (it's $10,000-$20,000 to do one show!), website updates, merchandise, recording studios, copies of their album, photographers, their attorney, agents, lawyers, managers, and producers, etc. There's a whole list to go through and there is a lot to be done with this money, and us fans think the same thing.. "they have enough money", when they really don't even get to see that money because it goes towards all that other stuff. Sometimes they have to bring out the money from their own pockets because they don't have enought. Think how tough that is! So please take this into consideration. If you already downloaded the songs and haven't bought the actually album yet, go out and get it. We want Hanson to be around for a long time. It's their dream to perform for a life time.

    Thank you,

    Alicia

As soon as it opens, you can sign up for the software for the hanson.net ISP, which is $14.95/month for the dial up ISP, or $6.95 if you want to keep AOL (or your current ISP), and get all the same features. Or, you could get hanson.net as your dial up ISP, and get AOL as your TCP/IP, which means you can get all the same AOL features, except the dial-up connection, for $9.95 a month! Phew, that was a mouthful!!
