After our trip to VA we made the trek to MD for the Hanson show in Silver Spring and the Members Only Event preshow.
Any Hanson.net member who RSVPed for the event was let in early to a pre-show performance of 7 Members Only songs and then a Q&A. They answered questions about who sings verse 2 on Ive Got Soul (and I think that is when Taylor quipped you could use Google – I’d have to agree – any question that I know the answer to or is on my website is not something you should be wasting our time asking…) they also go asked who has the best Walk of Shame story – which they refused to answer. They talked about if they felt their social media was personal or marketing (neither) a bit about Christmas shows being close to selling out and toying with the idea of a yearly Christmas themed event (please alternate it with BTTI somehow if you end up doing it, Hanson!) and then they did group photos with members in groups of 10. You had the option of forgoing a photo to get to the front of the line for the entrance to the stage again after the photos. Since we were doing ADA anyway we opted for the photo and ended up next to Zac.
Then we waited for doors to officially opened and got our spot up on the balcony for the show (Taylor’s side this time) The setlist was a bit different than the night before – they always do tend to mix things up a bit when they are on tour in the US since they know so many fans travel to many shows. Unfortunately it is getting harder and harder for me to review said shows lol Nothing of note happened – except that the AC was on FULL BLAST and blowing right at us the whole show which brought my chair dancing up a level or two to try and keep myself from freezing!
After the show was the after party but since it was a Sunday night we opted to not stay.
