Teen trio Hanson will be joined on tour by Norwegian teen duo M2M, according to Atlantic Records.
M2M's stint on the tour will hit 21 cities, beginning September 14 in Washington, D.C., and will concentrate on East Coast and Midwest shows before concluding October 22 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Hanson is currently touring behind "This Time Around," the follow-up to 1997's "Middle Of Nowhere" (see "UPDATE: Hanson Lines Up U.S. Tour").
Just like the Hanson brothers, the members of M2M play their own instruments, with Marion Raven, 16, on keyboards and Marit Larsen, 17, on guitar (see "Teen-Pop Duo M2M Delivers 'Funky Beats' From Norway").
Two singles from the duo's debut, "Shades Of Purple," have cracked the Top 10 of "Billboard " magazine's Hot 100 singles chart -- "Mirror, Mirror" and "Don't
Say You Love Me" [RealVideo].
