    Seeing Tragically Hip for the 1st time at Cleveland House of Blues May 31st. Can't wait!

    Whoever is seeing them at Massey Hall in Toronto - I'm green with envy! :mrgreen: That will be sick. Fantastic band in a fantastic venue
    ...And he who forgets will be destined to remember.

    ...I swear I never took it for granted. Just thought of it now.

    I've seen this group my share of times over the years starting with Another Roadside Attraction, Markham Fairgrounds in support of Day for Night.

    Actually had them filed under the "been there done that" file...that was until today.

    Tickets go onsale Friday for their show in my hometown, Wiarton ON on June 27th. Holy Shit. Who would have thought?

    A town of 2200 best known for our rodent Wiarton Willie will be hosting The Tragically Hip and of course I'm going! Just to have the tour shirt with this stop is reason enough for me to go. Other than Charlie Pride and good ol' Stompin Tom, this will be the biggest show Wiarton has ever seen.

    These guys continue to amaze me!
    The last PJ show I went to was the best PJ show ever, that is until they come around again of course

    usually 20-25 songs but this is a "two set affair" so I would expect 30-35 and maybe even a short acoustic set.

    I've seen them a lot over the yrs, big and tiny venues, always a great show. I've got my tix to see them in London this summer, happy about that even if it is a festival type thing.

    Its unreal, last year I saw Raconteurs, it was a 25 dollar ticket came to 37.50, doesn't sound like much but when you think about it a 12.50 service charge on a 25 dollar ticket is 50% of the fucking ticket price! What the fuck?!?!

    Seriously I don't mind shelling out for the Hip here because I know Canada is their bread and butter and you got to cash in where you can but 89.50? Come on guys!

    Please don't say Tragically Hip is equivalent to Pearl Jam! They are NOTHING live compared to Pearl Jam, and don't even come CLOSE to their studio works.

    Agreed. The opposite happened for me with the Hip as what happened with Pearl Jam: with PJ, I liked them at first, and seeing them live was a big time eye-opener, I LOVED the show. I saw the Hip last week at Massey Hall, with 7th row tickets, and was incredibly disappointed. I thought they were mediocre at best. And the crowd were a bunch of losers, no offense if there are any big Hip fans here :lol:

    The Hip are a GREAT live band. They aren't in the same category as Pearl Jam, but no one is :)

    Ya I heard those shows were shit. This may be the first time they've gotten bad reviews as far back as I can remember.
    I did see them at the Phoenix last year though and it was pretty darn good.

    Whoa - the hip certainly rivals PJ live. Gords improv far outdoes Eddie, and the band is tight. [PJ is still my favourite band, but for someone to say the Hip is boring - were you asleep? Gord and Bobby Baker are incredible.


    The Massey Hall setlists weren't as varied as they could have been but they did alright - Tuesday the 12th was the highlight.

    Well, I'm going to TWO hip shows here in Winnipeg. I love them almost as much as PJ! I'm hoping they will be better in a smaller venue like the concert hall.

    I found Gord's stage antics very strange... I'm sorry, but having a sweating problem does not justify using a rag as a prop, wiping your sweat constantly, and throwing it into the crowd. If Eddie threw a sweaty rag at me - I'd probably throw it back. That's just gross. Also, I did find the band's playing uninspired. I was off a bit to the side, so didn't see as much of the bassist, but the drums were very weak, and the guitar was soulless.

    I saw them twice in Kitchener at the end of April and both nights the crowd left me VERY disappointed. I was second row for one of the shows and the entire first two rows with the exception of maybe 5 or 6 people were SITTING DOWN for the entire show! Not even "Grace, too" got them out of their seats. It was pathetic, especially if you are used to Pearl Jam crowds! :)

    As for the comments about the Massey Hall shows ~ I read a statistic about how much they varied up the setlists and they varied them much more than even Pearl Jam do. That is what impressed me most about the 2 Kitchener shows I saw (and the setlist to the one I missed). Only 4 or 5 of the 24 or so songs the second show were repeats from the first.

    welcome to the boards. This really belongs in the other music board. But since you're a noob I guess you can have a free pass.

    Anyway I saw the hip at nokia theater and really liked them.
