Hanson Holds Court

It was a complete "love" match when Hanson played at the grand opening of the Arthur Ashe tennis center in New York. More than 20,000 fans showed up for the U.S Tennis Association s first annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day in New York recently which included two sets of live music from Hanson. While tennis stars such as Martina Hingis and Andre Agassi as well as TV veterans like Bill Cosby drew much applause, the most anticipated ceremony was the brothers Ike, Taylor and Zac Hanson playing their hits "MMMBop" and "Where's The Love" as well as other songs from their mega successful album Middle Of Nowhere. Here's some highlights from the festives.

Hanson on MTV

MTV played a large part in introducing fans to Hanson with their heavy play of their first video "MMMBop," so Ike, Taylor and Zac recently repaid the favor by hosting the preview for the 1997 MTV Video Music awards. Taped on an early Fall afternoon in the middle of New York City's Central Park, Ike, Taylor and Zachary had a great time messing around for the cameras. Unfortunately, a few nights later the guys lost the best newbie award to Fiona Apple.
