I’ve been a fan of The Tragically Hip since I was a teenager. In highschool in the early 90s, I went to concerts, small venues, outdoor football stadiums, Fort Henry, etc. Being from Kingston, it wasn’t hard to see the Hip in concert, or see them around town. Once I started at Queen’s University, Bobby Baker even lived down the street from me and it wasn’t a rare thing to see him out in the neighbourhood.
Over 20 years later, there’s still the same magic about hearing those songs. I missed a couple concerts in recent years and I swore I wasn’t going to miss another one. When I found out they were touring again for their new album, I ended up getting some amazing tickets and it was worth every penny.
If you’re a Hip fan, enjoy the photos.
