The Hanson brothers are in Manila for their Shout It Out Tour. They are slated to perform at Smart-Araneta tomorrow, 30 March, + in Waterfront, Cebu, the next day. + as of this writing my baby sister is probably going gaga over these 3 talented lads in SM North EDSA, where they have an album signing tonight. The little man + I would’ve loved to come but we had a change of plans before the event. I would’ve loved to photograph my Jared beside these guys + hope the he will grow up to be like them in the future: well-rounded, grounded, talented + inspiring individuals.
We have loved this band since the first time they came out in 1997, the Mmmbop era. Back when people are debating whether the lead vocalist, Taylor, is a boy or a girl, we are falling deeply with this group ‘s songs + their very first album, Middle of Nowhere. It was my sister, Cel, who is hit the hardest + went on to see them perform live in Manila for the first time in 2004.
I must say my favorite Hanson album will have to be This Time Around + my most favorite song is Love Song + this is how this goes:
We talked about love a million times it seems
The words come out our lips like we forgot what it means
We said we’d be together ’til death do us part
But we said those words with only half our hearts
In this life long love song
You can love right you can love wrong
In this love song you can love long
And if you love wrong it doesn’t mean love’s gone
What can I say, I used to be a sucker for this kind of songs…+ if I were not a mother, I would probably one of those people lining up tomorrow to see them live in concert. I would most definitely enjoy it. Oh well, I will just wait for the stories from my sister. She must have a lot as she is lucky to win a slot at the Hanson pre-concert Meet + Greet, too, I know some people are just darn lucky!
Anyway, if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, you might as well cram + get one from this groupon site, they are offering the upper box tickets at half the price. Check out the deal here: http://www.ensogo.com.ph/manila/hansons-live-in-manila-03282012.html
Am sure this Hanson concert will be a blast, it’s just too bad that I cannot go to the show. But, nevertheless, there’s no reason why I cannot enjoy a Hanson show on youtube, right? I would check out a video + I’ll watch it with my little man tomorrow.
