I love Gordon Dawnie so much!!! It was an unforgettable concert!
My husband and I saw the Hip at the Orpheum here in Vancouver after getting our tickets at ShowTime, and we had a blast! They played songs off their new album which I really enjoyed, and Gord had an amazing performance as always. The only problem I had was with the venue; it just isn't as well suited to a rock show as other places would be!
Just saw The Hip in Kingston the other day and it was a really good show. My only complaint is that the setlist was a little different than I was hoping for, but it was otherwise a great night! And thanks Showtime for getting me the tickets on such short notice!

The Tragically Hip are often viewed as the quintessential Canadian band. The tone and content of much of their music is a paean to the Canadian experience and touches on such themes as small-town life, geography, and hockey. In 2003, The Tragically Hip performed a cover of "Black Day in July" on Beautiful: A Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot, a song about the 1967 12th Street Riot in Detroit. At the Juno awards, they performed a cover of The Weakerthans' "Aside".
The Tragically Hip have a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame and also performed a three-song set at the Live 8 concert in Barrie, Ontario.
On November 1, 2005, they released a Juno Award winning double CD, double DVD box set, Hipeponymous, including all of their music videos to date, a backstage documentary called "Macroscopic", an animated Hip-scored short film entitled "The Right Whale", two brand new songs, a full length concert from November 2004, and a 2-CD greatest hits collection Yer Favourites (selected online by 150,000 fans).
The Tragically Hip's latest album, World Container, was released in 2006 and followed with a cross-Canada tour.
