Went to my Hanson concerts.  The Brisbane one was ok but I was surrounded by people who weren't really fans they got drunk pretty quickly.  Hanson did a good job and they did the bee gees acapella song that was magical.  I loved the gold coast one though the set list was amazing and I met a girl called Rachel so we had fun we were piano side near the speakers.  I'll never forget they played save me, cried, been there before (my fave off the walk)  and man from Milwaukee which was awesome. I was so impressed with the way they played the crowd I thought it would suck cause there were a few too many drunk and screaming girls but they re-did the set list and wore people out with the songs they knew and then the fans got all the songs in at the end.  It was super smart.  I wish I could have gone to more but I didn't have the money.  Next time hopefully.

It just hit me really hard this time tomorrow I'll be seeing Hanson!!!

I want them to play Save Me so much if they do I will cry every time the 5of5 version comes on my iPod I get teary eyed.

I also hope they play scream and be free, Already Home, Use me up, and Cut right through me. I'd be the happiest girl ever if they did.

I'm going to Coolangatta show as well so hopefully there will be those songs cause I voted for them.

I'm pissed off that every radio show they are doing is having a 90's day. Yes Hanson debuted in the 90's but they never disappeared they made music constantly and they were only here 2 years ago and these radio stations did the same fucking thing.

It disrespectful and unoriginal.

Artifact

I watched the 30 seconds to Mars Documentary Artifact today.  It's about how record companies screw over artist and that is their business model.  They make no apologies for it.  So 30 seconds to Mars were sued by their own label for $30 million for breach of contract and 30stm fought back saying there was no breach under california law.

Anyway after 200 days of a lawsuit with the label Jared Leto and managers send them terms and conditions to re-sign with the label and get out of the lawsuit.  Eventually the label caves and they resign.

Jared and the band got what they wanted sort of they haven't been paid for any of their album sales.  They are basically slaves to this label and the label knows it.  I get why they stayed with the label because they didn't want to do it themselves and were scared of another label being worse.  It sucks that is how the music business is actually run.  I can't even imagine what some other huge artist goes through they don't even have anything to do with the music.


I'm so proud of Hanson for going independent.  I know they work really hard and I'm proud they are the type to say screw you I'll do it my way no matter the consequences.  That's fucking brave.

Speaking of hanson tickets go on sale next week.  They are playing the tivoli I'll get a ticket to that but not any other shows.  I don't have any money.

I'm listening to Hanson's new album Anthem I didn't listen to any clips previous this I held out. I'm half way through while listening to this and honestly I am disappointed I love all their albums previously but this one just seems lost or confused or something.

I think it's the music there is nothing that really stands out I thought with a title like Anthem they would emphasise particular sounds big drums or guitar heavy or something. I thought there would be a big chorus but it's like they threw everything together and it ends up a mesh of sound that is dated.

I like I've got soul.

Why do they give Isaac the ballard this guy can fully rock! He should have a song he can belt out his voice is solid.

Ok the album just ended and I feel like maybe they should get an outside source to produce them next time. It is just lacking any type of Anthem musically or lyrically at all.

Out of 5 I give 2 :(

Edit:I am an idiot.  This album is fantastic it took a while to grow on me but I really love it. Only 2 songs that I don't like on there.

So the Brisbane Hanson concert number 2 was last night and I have a chest infection so I didn't go.  But I did tweet them begging them to play weird in Brisbane last week and of course last night Taylor did solo and apparently it was epic and I missed it.  Story of my life :(  The gold coast concert is tonight I can't make that either it sucks I paid for hotel room down there too.  So tempted to go anyway but I'd end up in hospital if I did.

Enmore Theater concert was last night and what a blast it was.  Just when I think they can't raise the bar any furthur they do!
Matt Wertz came out and by this time the crowd was eager to have some fun and a lot of us have seen him before so we knew the lyrics.  He was like 'Hanson fans are the best fans in the world my own personal fans in the US don't do this'  There was a chant for him to take his top off I hope that is on youTube it was classic he undid one button and said he felt like a slut for that LMAO.  He wants to see a Kangaroo but doesn't want to go to a zoo so this girl in front row had a photo of a kangaroo who is a rescue she looks after on her phone and showed him and he was like that is cool.  I'm a little in love with Matt Wertz I can't help it he's so charming.

Hanson came out and the sound of the crowd was deafening my ears still haven't recovered.  Isaac, Taylor and Zac looked really hot and so happy!!  I was on Taylors side of the stage he was wearing really tight jeans a cream overshirt with a blue neckerchief pure Taylor hotness.  They were so on last night.

The set list stayed the same with the exception of Zac singing Go and letting us decide if he played on Guitar or Piano.  Guitar won I got video of that on my phone.  Taylor came out and did a song off the members EP I also got that on video.  I will add both to my photobucket later.  They also played Rock and Roll Razorblade.

What I have really noticed about last night was there were more guys there. The guy next to me was there with some friends and his girlfriend and he got really into the show he danced and clapped and sang but I could see he was so impressed with their musicality he was more of a Metallica fan but Hanson blew him away.  I've noticed this about all the concerts I've gone to so far is the fans that are there for nostalgia are the ones completely blown away by the end of the night because they have never been to a concert like that.  It's hardcore happiness at the end of the night and they exceed your expectations they raise the bar on music and fandom.  I love that.

My day )



The concert was okay not as good as Adelaide but I got some pics and video of MmmBop and Strong enough to break.  Ike had guitar problems again but other than that they sounded really good and the crowd sung along.

Or should I say Radelaide!?  They started late but boy was it worth it!  The crowd was so pumped and I was centre stage 5 rows back.  I absolutely loved the layout of HQ  I was in the middle of the line so I thought anywhere near stage would be gone but it wasn't there was heaps of space that filled till compacity when Hanson came on.  

The crowd sung along to every song very loudly and Hanson couldn't stop smiling!!  They are so amazing and they thanked the audience for being so awesome to their opening acts because they reckon the we are nice and into it.

Anyway They played in no correct order

I lost most of my voice after that concert and even now it's still gravely but totally worth it.  I'm in Sydney right now and I can't wait for this weekend.  I want to meet them so bad now!!

Go to my Photobucket album to see pics and a video of Wish I was There.

I arrived at 7pm the line was already down the street it was insane.  We finally go in at 7:45pm I wanted to be as close to the stage as I could but had to go to the toilet so I ended up on the balcony upstairs. Matt Wertz comes out and nobody cared around me except me I really love him so I sang along.  He really won the crowd over though he is amazing at least 4 girls around me were on their iPhones buying his albums off iTunes as he played them lol.  He got the crowd to sing to songs they didn't even know amazing.  

Hanson came out they opened with Waiting for This which sounded ok but they had tech difficulties and Ike and Tay were annoyed.
Tay didn't sound right the sound for him was wrong and Ike was pissed his guitars weren't done properly so after the first 2 or 3 songs they went off stage had a band meeting and decided to do acoustic of Madeline which was a dream come true while the techs fixed everything.  Then they relised the crowd was mostly newbies/oldies so did heaps of old songs and zac songs because nothing was wrong with his sound.  Which I had no problem with Zac is my fave.  Once everything was fixed they played a bunch of song including a beatles cover and another cover song. Which both had Zac on lead.  Ike really has grown as a guitarist and was great and Taylor is charasmatic on stage your eyes can't help but go to him.  I was on his side of the stage so I had perfect view of him.  

I took photos but my camera is shit and most of them are blury and far away.  I took some video but I will work on that in the following concerts.  I'll be closer to the stage at the other concerts.  I can't believe I saw Hanson it happens too infrequently but each time is magical.  

Set list in no order

Got my digital copy off iTunes this morning.  Number 20 on pop album chart and 62 overall.  

3 Days!!!

13 more days!!

I can't believe I got all my flight and hotels organized and paid for who am I?  Qantas for some stupid reason doesn't take visa debit so I had to choose flights between Jetstar and Virgin.  It was hard to get a direct flight from Brisbane to Adelaide but I'm going down on the 13th which is the night of the concert so I'll check in at about 3:30pm and have something to eat get oriented and go to the venue and then I fly to Sydney on the 14th I'm staying near central station so I'm in the middle of both venues and I want to go to the aquarium during the day and maybe the zoo and go to Sydney harbour and see the opera house.  I'm there until the 17th so that's cool. I got really excellent deals on my hotels from Agoda 2 of them even included breakfast.  I understand why people have travel agents now though omg trying to get the best/cheapest deal was exhausting.  VirginAustralia have happy hour from 4pm so I'll remember that in future. Agoda tend to have the best deals in the afternooon and late night.  

I have to work the next two weeks straight to get some spending money together but I should be fine.  

I cannot stop listening to Matt Wertz great music.

27 more days to go!!!

It's my mums b'day today so we are going out to dinner tonight at a local place.   I honestly don't like eating out it's awkward and the options of what I can have are limited.  Dessert is good though.  

Hanson will be here this time next month I'm excited I paid for all my hotels and I still need to pay for 2 flights so I'll do that this weekend.  I'll be flying on Jetstar and Virgin airlines.  I  just hope I have enough money for transport I should I'm working my ass off lately taking every shift I can.  

Soundwave was announced and all 4 bands I suggested on facebook are coming I'm super excited.  I wanted Metallica, Anthrax, Garbage and Blink 182.  They are also bringing Linkin Park and Paramore so that's very cool.  

My friend invited me to her going away drinks at Fridays in the city I've never been there but I'm going cause she is a great friend.  I just need proper clothes I'm so not dressy.  

I'm re-watching all of Smallville it really is amazing when you watch it all together the character storylines makes sense.  I still hate what they did to Lana and Mr Kent but it impacts Clark in a big way so whatever.  Lex and Lionel Luthor are genius.

Happy Hanson Day!  

I'll be forever grateful for them.
a_lone_mirage: (Default)

Such an awesome clip I love how into it the audience are.
a_lone_mirage: (Zac)
 OMG THAT WAS INCREDIBLE!!!!  They sounded so beautiful.  They played Misery which they never do and Lullabelle which is amazing because he never plays that.  Zac has the most incredible voice out of the three of them.  I really loved LWEO that song just rocks.  I loved Danicin in the wind if only because Taylor plays guitar and it's really sexy.  Believe is just a song that got me through a lot in my life and I love them for writing it.  Underneath is an album that gives me hope.  It was 5 years from TTA and they left the record company and did it their way and I'm proud of them for it. 

Underneath is an album that says to me if you really want something to hold on to it tight and screw everybody else.  You just have to believe in yourself. 
a_lone_mirage: (Zac)



So cool!

I can't wait for their new album!
a_lone_mirage: (dolphins jump)
I just squeeled really loud because an ad for the last song with miley cyrus was on the tv and thing that made me squeel was the song playing it was Hanson - Your illusion.  I'm so fucking happy for them that's huge.  I didn't want to see the movie cause it looks cliche and bad but if Hanson are on soundtrack I may watch it.  This has made my whole day.

Edit: Apparently the song is only in the trailer and not on the soundtrack which is cruel and wrong.  I won't be seeing the movie.

Today I downloaded the Stand up Stand up EP from Hanson I love it so much. I love the beats, the guitar, the piano and of course their vocals. I can't choose a favourite. I wish I could see them live again. I can't wait for their next album it's gonna be so awesome. I'm so proud of them.
