I'm royally pissed that I wasn't able to watch it last night, so I'm hoping that I can find the entire concert somewhere on the internet.
The Tragically Hip have always been one of my all-time favourite bands. I've seen them live four times over the years, the best one was at an outdoor
concert in the 90's... thousands of people dancing and singing to their music like there was no tomorrow.
The first time I saw the Hip was actually at a bar in Winnipeg way back in the 80's when they were still trying to make a name for themselves.
Gordie brought out onto the stage a small hibachi bbq, cooked up some hotdogs, and started tossing them at the audience... everyone loved it ! But
the bar manager got so pissed at them that they were banned from ever playing at that bar ever again.
They were crazy mothers back in those early days !
Stupid bar manager had no idea that he just threw away the chance to draw in mega future revenues for his bar...
