2020 stunk for concerts, at least in person. I somehow managed to do every Hanson show they did (appropriately 13 by my count but 16 for others) and I think my list of who I saw in concert more accurately represents what people think I do concert wise. In normal years I typically go to 2 non-Hanson shows for every 1 Hanson and that was not the case this year. The only 2 non Hanson shows were the special guests at their Back to the Island Event and the extra night from the band who did the event before them. So still, Hanson adjacent. I ended the year with a total of 660 shows attended, 229 of which have been Hanson.
Most expensive show: Back to the Island
Least (not free) expensive show: Basically all the other shows I did were about the same price and pretty much every show was Hanson… so yeah.
