Eldest Hanson Hospitalized

10/3/2007 7:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Isaac Hanson, 27, the eldest of the family trio of the band Hanson, has been hospitalized suffering from a pulmonary embolism, thus postponing their concert in Tulsa tonight.

As the Tulsa World first reported, tonight's show "is definitely canceled." The paper spoke with Ken Philips, the band's publicist, who said Isaac was admitted to the hospital earlier today with severe shoulder and chest pain. "This could be serious, but nobody knows just yet," and added, "We are hoping for the best."

A pulmonary embolism is a serious condition. Blood clots travel to the lungs and can result in death if not treated immediately. Isaac has been hospitalized for this condition before.

Hanson, the family band that drove the kids crazy with the hit "MMMBop," is from Tulsa.

Sorry to hear about this. Pls. be careful to be treated. It sounds like they should place a sieve in the pulmonary artery to prevent the clot from going to the heart and lodging somewhere. Pls. be certain the Drs. check that this is not Pulminary Hypertension - a rare but dangerous disease if not treated. It has the same symptoms Isaac displays.

I have always been a fan of these boys, well, young men now, I should say. They have set a good example for others. All the best to the family and their loved ones. Kathy

OMG!!!! I was just at their concert last night in Dallas and was talking to him and he seemed fine and played great. He did disappear after the walk that they held before the concert, but he played great later on.... I wish him and his entire family luck and love and many prayers for Ike to get well soon. This is crazy....I have a picture with him less than 24 hours old.....
