We cant wait to come together with fans across Australia and New Zealand, and share music live on stage once again.

Hansons trip down under will come in support of their 11th studio album Red Green Blue, a combination of three solo-led projects, bringing together Isaac, Taylor and Zacs creative voices, with each brother producing a third of the album (Taylors Red, Isaacs Green, and Zacs Blue).

The record is co-produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, engineer and mixer Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco), and Grammy Award-winning Artist and producer David Garza (Fiona Apple, Midland, Sharon Van Etten), and features the singles Child At Heart, Write You A Song and Dont Let Me Down (featuring Zach Myers of Shinedown).

The visit will be Hansons first to New Zealand since their 2017 Middle of Everywhere tour which celebrated the groups 25th anniversary. They most recently toured Australia in 2019 with their String Theory Tour, which saw them take the stage alongside a symphony orchestra, through a special collaboration with Academy Award-winning arranger David Campbell.

Being their first major tour in three years, fans can expect a career spanning set list of fan favourites, along with the songs off the new album and 2020s Against The World.

The multi-platinum three-time Grammy-nominated pop-rock group has sold over 16 million albums, and performed concerts to over three million fans world-wide.

Founded in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1992, the band established a regional following before making a meteoric rise to international fame with their major-label debut, Middle Of Nowhere, lead by the earworm single MmmBop, which reached number one in 27 countries simultaneously and climbed to number four on the New Zealand charts.

This was followed by their sophomore album Snowed In, a Christmas record that became the best-selling holiday album for 1997 in the US and peaked at number 12 in New Zealand.
