(someone had to bring back the longest running non-PJ Thread on this Board)

Have at it...

All things "The Hip"... all the time..

"If from the outside there's no demand for what you do.. and inside there's an army waiting for its marching orders from you..."

"Sorry to interupt you caller but that"s a PHYSICAL IMPOSSIBILTY... ITS JUST A PHY-SI-CAL IMPOSSI-BILTY..!"

"One night in El Paso
The cops go into the crowd
Under a throbbing bladder of light
And the music is just so loud'"

    And what do we think of the new album (or, what we've heard from it)?
    If "Morning Moon" is an indication, I think it'll be interesting and cool. Laid back, organic, almost blissful.
    Looking forward to April 7th.

    I've only heard Morning Moon, obviously... But I'm digging it! :) As I said to a coworker today, though, I think at this point The Hip has done pretty much everything. :lol: They're like PJ in that they do what they want, and you never know what they might come out with!

    Looking forward to seeing my first Kingston proper show too! I went to Across the Causeway in 2004, but I missed out on the the K-Rock Centre opening last year. :x GD show sold out in what, 10-15 minutes? :evil: :lol:

    Awesome!!

    I did hear that they are playing the Moore in Seattle on June 17th so that means any Vancouver dates will be around then, if anyone cares to play the speculation game with me. :mrgreen:

    I would be happy with 3, apparently the ticket prices for the Calgary shows are 100+ so who knows even then how many I would go to at that price.

    I just kind of hope they dont play here after the Calgary shows in September, might be hard for me to do anything in September. You know .... :D

    AN EVENING WITH

    WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH, 2009

    SOUTHERN ALBERTA JUBILEE AUDITORIUM - CALGARY, AB

    Doors 6:30pm Show 7:30pm

    Canada’s band, The Tragically Hip, announce their Canadian tour dates hitting Banff's Eric Harvie Theatre on September 19th and Calgary’s Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on September 21st, 23rd & 24th! With the purchase of a ticket, The Hip are offering their fans the option to pre-order their highly anticipated 12th studio album, We Are The Same, due out April 7th, 2009. With the purchase of the album, Hip fanatics will also receive a bonus live album, Live From The Vault: Volume 4, that is not available in stores.

    The Tragically Hip, a dozen albums and 26 years in the making, shows us once again not only why they are but who they are, snowshoeing through new land while sowing seeds for all of us secret musicians and poets and citizens hungry for a chance and a change. We Are the Same, brings its listeners something beyond the unexpected: actual hope. Gord Downie’s lyrics-backed by a band ripe with confidence and skill-tackle what we might assume had passed far under the bridge. Bob Rock recorded and mixed We Are The Same at the band’s Bath House studio in Kingston, Vancouver and Maui.

    Critically acclaimed for over two decades, The Tragically Hip has been at the heart of the Canadian music scene for evoking a strong emotional connection between their music and their fans that remains unrivalled in this country. A five-piece group of friends including Robby Baker (guitar), Gordon Downie (vocals, guitar), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar) and Gord Sinclair (bass), who grew up in Kingston, Ontario, The Hip has achieved the enviable status of a band that enjoys both mass popularity with over 8 million albums sold worldwide, as well as peer recognition through 31 Juno Award Nominations and 11 wins.
