This is me in 1999. My love for Hanson actually started in 1997, but of course, it took a while before I was able to collect enough Hanson posters and magazine pictures to cover up one side of my room's wall.
I was only 17 when I became their fan. I am now about to turn 32, but I still love them just as much. Alongside a few Hansonites (a term we call a Hanson fan) who still kept "the Hanson pride alive," we never really lost our love for the brothers and their music, and now, seven years after their first concert here, Hanson will come back to perform live on Philippine shores once again.
It may be the song "MMMBop" that people would remember them by, but really, they have a whole lot of songs that are very well written. Hanson Live in Manila will be on:
- 30 March 2012 - Smart Araneta Coliseum
- 31 March 2012 - Waterfront Hotel and Casino Cebu City
A little over a month left before the concert and I still don't have a ticket for it. For someone who's loving the band since she first saw Hanson's music video and didn't stop loving the band, it pains me that I still don't have tickets for the show. It felt part of me is missing, that I am crippled, that I am missing out one of the good things in life. I do hope somehow, I can get to watch them perform live again, take their pictures, and sing along with them.
