Hanson coming to the State Theatre in St. Petersburg


It's 2010 all over again.

No sooner did we post the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival concert series than we learned one of the headliners is coming to the State Theatre in St. Petersburg. Just as they did last year.

Oklahoma pop-rockers Hanson are coming to the State Theatre on Oct. 28. Tickets are $27-$31. We don't have a link yet, but they're scheduled to go onsale via Daddy Kool on July 12.

Like we said, this is a replay of 2010, when Hanson hit the State around the same time as their performance at Epcot. We attended that show, and thought it was great fun. Did we fall in love with Taylor's hair? Yes, yes, we did:

Taylor's hair is astonishing. I know how this sounds. I do not care. It is probably the most perfect rock-star hair I've ever seen on a living human being. It is like the hair of Jon Bon Jovi, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Pattinson all rolled into one perfect coif. Taylor knows it, too; every time he swung his head up from the mic, his mane floated around his face like windswept Serengeti grass. Go ahead, laugh at me. You weren't there. You didn't see it. I SAW IT. And I plan to requisition any and all paperwork necessary to nominate it as the eighth wonder of the natural world.

Our opinion has not changed in the past year.
