Hanson Slated to Appear at Empire Live For Their Red Green Blue Tour
ALBANY — As part of their newly announced RED GREEN BLUE TOUR, Pop-Rock Trio HANSON is slated to appear at Empire Live in Albany on July 28th at 7 pm. Tickets for the tour go on sale on January 20th at 10 am (local) via Hanson.net. Along with this announcement, HANSON is set to release their unique new album comprised of the band’s three solo-led projects. Red Green Blue, via 3CG Records on May 20th, right as the band is reaching the milestone of 30 years performing together. The new Red Green Blue album brings together the band’s three unique creative voices like never before with a third of the album written and produced by each brother (Taylor’s Red, Isaac’s Green, and Zac’s Blue) as well as a team of collaborators. The album is co-produced by Grammy Award-winning Producer, Engineer, and Mixer by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco), and Grammy Award-winning Artist and Producer David Garza (Fiona Apple, Midland, Sharon Van Etten).
“Going into our 30th year as a band we felt like it was imperative we continue to tell our story like only we can, and telling stories in ways that will continue to challenge us to grow and give people new reasons to listen. Red Green Blue is about sharing what has made us a band that has been able to weather so many storms,” said Isaac Hanson.
“Our love and respect for Jim Scott have only grown since we first met 20 years ago. He has been behind some of our favorite albums, so it’s an absolute joy to have finally made a project together,” said Taylor Hanson.
Added Zac Hanson, “We have had a long friendship and deep connection with David since our early days as a band. We could not have had a better musical collaborator for this milestone project.”
Beginning in June in Europe, the RED GREEN BLUE WORLD TOUR will bring HANSON to the US and Canada from July-September. The band’s first major tour since their String Theory album & tour in 2018/2019, fans will be in store for a tour which not only features the premiere of 15 songs from the new project but will also be the first tour to include live performances of the 2020s Against The World as well as career-spanning setlists of fan favorites. The US and Canada leg of the tour is produced by Live Nation.
Leading up to May’s full album release of RED GREEN BLUE, fans will get a taste of the trifecta of sound, with a single featuring each of the brothers. February 11th will mark Taylor’s earnest and dynamic “Child At Heart,” release, while March 11th will see the release of Isaac’s organic and heartwarming “Write You A Song.” April 15 will feature the rock-infused pop of Zac’s “Don’t Let Me Down.”
