Recording event[edit]

The album and DVD were recorded in two sessions on May 5, 2007. Some fans were chosen to sit in on both recording sessions, for continuity purposes in the video. Not all aspects of the recording sessions made it to the CD/DVD – for example, the band performed the songs "Great Divide" (during both sessions) and "Something Going Round" (during the second session) off their 2007 album The Walk, but those songs were never released as a part of the Middle of Nowhere Acoustic collection. Bootleg audio recordings of these performances do exist.

After each recording session, the band took group photos with fans, and then merchandise tables were opened where fans could buy limited-edition anniversary T-shirts as well as regular Hanson merchcandise, to include shirts, posters, keychains, and more. The shirts were black, with an orange and yellow design reminiscent of the design and color scheme from the Middle of Nowhere album.

Middle of Nowhere omissions[edit]

The Middle of Nowhere tracks "Thinking Of You," "Speechless," and "With You In Your Dreams" were not performed.
