    thank you for the positivity response. god we need more of that, every day. more than ever before  :)
    i wasn't gonna wait in line to get in for this last show(saw all 5 in ontario on that last tour)
    so to get a reprint of the actual shirt of their last show is indeed awesome !! f'n priceless to me
    and man do i ever still miss gord

    Ha no problem, gotta stay positive in these strange days :)

    And me too. An outdoor Hip show next spring would be the perfect way to move forward once all this COVID stuff is over. The only Hip shirt I own was from my first Hip show back in 1995 in Red Deer, Alberta on the Day for Night tour. I wish I could buy a shirt from one of the shows I'd been to, it's an awesome idea!!

  • New Gord Downie solo recording was just announced. 

  • toolietoolie Posts: 348
    I just ordered the vinyl. Not what I expected to be issued, but it will be poignant. 
  • toolietoolie Posts: 348
    I’m so stoked for this. The 2 releases are awesome

    You get the feeling he really tried to do what he could what the time he had left.   2 solo albums and (from what I hear) about half a tragically hip album.  That's damned impressive.

    it really is.

  • What a pleasant surprise after the announcement about the movies. I know they've been teasing it but looking forward to checking this out.

    i honestly couldn't tell what they were teasing. looking at instagram on my phone, i couldn't read any of the lyric pages they posted, so I couldn't tell if it was new stuff or old

    2 songs are up on Apple Music now. Very impressive.

    Something about when I hear Gord sing these last few years. He sounds so damn alive, from the old songs to new.

    Heck yes. Can’t wait to see what’s on it. Would be cool if they released an old live show as well - one can hope!!!

    I didn’t look it up since I knew I couldn’t afford it, but out of curiosity how much is it selling for?

    hard pass. 

    as soon as jake gold came back to the fold as management, the gouging has increased like crazy. i hope we just get more music soon. enough of the ramped up merch stuff.

    I’d just be praying for a signed 2016 poster, all to be let down on Christmas morning 
    so I’ll have to pass too
  • HughFreakingDillonHughFreakingDillon HeadstoniaPosts: 27,574
    must be sold out. can't find it. will be interesting to see what people got. i already have something signed from the hip (hipeponymous box set pre-order on maplemusic.com came with a signed placard inserted), so i couldn't figure out what else might be worth that much beyond something authographed.

    Did anyone on here buy the gift crate? It would be cool to see what they get. Too pricey for me though.

    I did.  I’ll let you all know what I got once here. I was hesitant as I own a lot of HIP stuff so I’m sure I will get a few things I already own but it’s a chance you take. I love this band every bit as much as PJ so had to do it. Hell the crate it comes in is valued at $100 if you go by PJ pricing for their crate they sold a few years back 😀

    I wanted to get into this band due to their lofty reputation, but I recently caught a brief clip of a live show, like 10 seconds, and it was a total turn-off.
    Does the singer always sound like the guy from the B-52's or was that just an artefact of that particular song or show?
    It was VERY nasally and over-enunciated, is that just his style?

    I have no reliable internet connection so I have to be very judicious with my streaming time, that's why I asked rather than just pulling up YouTube and checking for myself.

    hard to say without knowing what 10 second clip you are referring to, but my guess is you've already made up your mind.
