Hanson at Mesa Arts Center Still Make Audiences Scream After More Than a Decade

There may not have been as many handmade signs or as much hysteria at Mesa Arts Center last night as Hanson has seen in their heyday, but the band still managed to pack more than 500 fans in for an intimate show.

The guys proved their accessibility to their fans by giving out gifts to audience members (see: Zac's drumsticks), as well as holding a meet-and-greet after the show. And while one fan thought Frankie Muniz's band You Hang Up played decently, she thought the guys should add some meat to their bones.

Here's what everyone was buzzing about, and read our review here.
