If Sunday night’s concert at House of Blues was any indication of Hanson’s popularity and talent, it’s safe to say the pop trio hasn’t lost its touch. More than a decade after their hit song, “MMMBop” came out, the Hanson brothers have maintained much of the same rhythm, energy and harmony that characterized their debut album, Middle of Nowhere.

The brothers played some of their older hits, including “MMMBop” and “Where’s the Love,” as well as songs from their latest album, The Walk, released last July.

“Trying my hand at podcast producing yet again, we go mobile for this special episode. Yesterday Keira and I met up with Zac, Taylor and Isaac Hanson before their show in Vancouver. We learned about The Walk, what they’ve been up to in the 8 years they’ve been away from our city, and most of all that these grown men truly do have talent and a whole lot of heart.”

HANSON Tour continues with new mission

New US Tour dates and one-mile walks with fans to fight Poverty in Africa empower participants with new goal.

New coffee table book inspired by their efforts to fight poverty and AIDS in Africa will also contain a special EP with newly recorded tracks by the band

Tulsa, OK –July 2008–With HANSON’s fourth studio album, The Walk, which debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Independent Chart, the band has announced a new set of U.S.dates beginning September 7. The Walk Around The World Tour has a refreshed message in their goals to fight poverty in Africa and a re-tooled live set for the fans. A complete list of dates is listed below.

HANSON, known for their energizing and engaging live performances have been receiving rave reviews for The Walk tour. Absolute Punk enthuses “Among all of the incredible live performances I’ve seen this year, Hanson has risen to the top as the best” and New York’s Village Voice calls HANSON “The finest straight-up rock band in America”.

On The Walk Around The World Tour it is not HANSON that is trotting the globe (though they will be touring in South America this Fall) HANSON’s new campaign is to encourage fans and other individuals to continue the one mile walks they have hosted since last Fall to fight poverty – with a new mission of compiling enough miles to walk ‘around the world’ (24,902 Miles.) Through the campaign others can organize their own walks locally coordinated through Takethewalk.net set to launch mid-August or join HANSON for a walk during their tour. For each mile, a dollar is donated on the walker’s behalf – by the band. Most importantly fans are empowered to directly support real solutions on the ground in Africa through the tour and the bands site.

“The Walk is about taking action, no matter how small. Our generation has the power to fight global challenges by looking at tangible actions and putting them to work” said Taylor Hanson. Added Zac Hanson “Each mile shows the power of simple actions to make a difference – the real impact comes when participants see how much more they can do”.

The Walk Tour began last Fall with one mile walks helping to provide thousands of shoes to children in Poverty in South Africa with TOMS Shoes. Last November HANSON joined TOMS on their second shoe drop, delivering a whopping 50,000 pairs of shoes to children in Africa.

On the road this Fall, the band will also be featuring a special coffee table book inspired by their efforts to fight poverty and AIDS in Africa. The book, called Take The Walk presents the bands own story and the importance of individuals taking simple actions to fight poverty and disease in Africa. The book will also feature a special EP with new tracks recorded especially for the project. With both the music and the book raising further funds for aid groups in Africa, including continued support of TOMS Shoes and HIVSA.

HANSON will also continue their one-mile barefoot walks with fans, coinciding with their concerts across the US. The exact location of each day’s walk will be announced on hanson.net 3 hours in advance (if you participate in the one-mile walk, you’ll get to “jump the line” for the concert that night so you don’t need to worry about losing your place!).

Hanson Ready to Hit the Road!

Hanson is taking to the road this fall in support of their album The Walk – and they’re going to do just that with fans.

Before each of their 35 tour stops (beginning Sept. 7 in Portland, Ore.) on the “Walk Around The World Tour,” the band will continue their tradition of taking a barefoot, one-mile walk with fans with the goal of walking ‘around the world,’ or 24,902 miles, to raise awareness about poverty and AIDS in Africa.

Hanson’s takethewalk.net campaign also gives fans a chance to organize their own walks. The band plans to donate $ 1 per mile walked to fight poverty in Africa, where their album – which dropped last year – was partially recorded.

The first single, “Great Divide,” features children from Mozambique and South Africa.

“Africa has become a bigger and bigger part of our lives with this album,” Zac Hanson tells PEOPLE. (The band visited last year to provide TOMS shoes for children in need). “When you look at what AIDS is doing to families over there and think about how our little son is never going to deal with those kinds of struggles, it helps you realize how important it is to give these people the ability to help themselves.”
