Eldest member of Hanson hospitalized
DALLAS (AP) — The eldest member of Hanson remained hospitalized Wednesday night after complaining of chest and shoulder pain following a performance the previous night.
Isaac Hanson, 26, was taken to Baylor University Medical Center on Tuesday night after a show at the House of Blues in Dallas. A nursing supervisor said Hanson was in stable condition Wednesday night.
Dallas-Fort Worth television station KDFW reported Hanson was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism, which occurs when a blood clot in the extremities breaks away and travels to the lungs.
Hanson's brother Taylor told the TV station that his brother was doing well.
"We appreciate thoughts and prayers that have been out there for him," he said by phone from Tulsa, the band's hometown. "We want the tour to go on, so you know we are working steadfastly to see how long he's going to need to rest."
OK, so the purpose of this post is to ask if anyone even knew Hanson is still a performing act? Like, do you know even one person who would buy a ticket to go see them or can even sing any of their songs? Well, I can sing one line from one song - I think it goes, "mmm bop". Of course, I'm not sure why Hanson still touring surprises me considering I read a headline about the Spice Girls selling out - as in, they are going to give a concert and the tickets were sold out in 18 minutes!
