UPDATE: Hanson Lines Up U.S. Tour

Almost two months after delivering their latest album to stores, the brothers of Hanson have lined up a U.S. tour in support of it.

So far, the band has only played a string of radio shows and a few one-off dates to support "This Time Around," and now the group will take the road in earnest starting July 27 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The band has lined up a tentative schedule of dates through late October, when the group plans to return to its home turf of Oklahoma after touching down in just about every other corner of the U.S.

The band currently rules the "Total Request Live" roost with its single, "If Only," but Hanson turned to such classics as Steppenwolf's 1968 hit "Magic Carpet Ride" and Janis Joplin's 1969 chestnut "Piece Of My Heart" during a show at San Francisco's Fillmore Theater Tuesday night. About 900 fans jammed the concert, which was filmed for DirecTV.

If you'd rather catch Hanson in the flesh, here's the band's tentative tour schedule, with dates
