How many times do you reckon Hanson have performed MMMBop over the last 20-odd years? Heck, one cannot even begin to try and estimate. I reckon I’ve seen it on Sunrise 20 x times alone to be honest. But performing MMMBop with a live symphony orchestra? Well, this is something I have not yet seen. UNTIL TODAY THAT IS.

It’s so wholesome:

Dang, they’re it’s beautiful. Oh, and for your much-needed information, the ’97 banger was originally written acoustically – whoever does the @hanson Insta posts said so themselves (my money’s on Taylor).


Wanna see this live, in person, with the three daddies a stone’s throw away? Honey you and me both, and we can. Whoop whoop. This is how the choon-and-a-half has – and will continue to be – performed globally for the trio’s current String Theory World Tour, coming to an Aussie venue near you:

Wednesday, February 27
Palais Theatre, Melbourne

Monday, March 4 – SOLD OUT
Sydney Opera House

Tuesday, March 5

Wednesday, March 6

Friday, March 8

Saturday, March 9

Along with MMMBop, Hanson will also be performing bonafide bangers from their 10 studio albums (!!!), all with their orchestra crew in tow. That being said, there are 2 x “special shows” at Melbourne bloody Zoo on Friday, March 1 (sold out, soz) and Saturday, March 2 (buy here) as well.

If you can’t make the shows, well, that’s a shame for your childhood dreams, but you could also try doing it vicariously through the String Theory album, dropping tomorrow.
