Over 13 years later, this band still makes me smile no matter how I'm feeling. And now I live in New York, so I get all the spoils of superfandom (see last 3 shows on list) I dreamed of when I was 13 and living in Newport News.
I've dropped the Hanson shirts though.
And the ear-piercing teenage screaming.
And the poster buying (except certain movie posters....but that's besides the point).
I've gained a high school degree, four college degrees, lived in 8 cities, 4 states, 2 countries, gotten a drivers licence, numerous amounts of amazing friends (9 different people have joined or will join for the shows below), gained and lost Old Faithful the backpack, and many, many other things. And missed one concert due to a deer, Nebraska football and the bug.

I'm on a business trip writing this in between video editing processing, this creates time-killing detail. Much like my Singapore post. And I can't believe my sis and I both got one of fourteen tix for the two concerts I chose for the 5-of-5 stint.
Hanson. They do still rock.
