The Tragically Hip reveal Canadian tour plans

- October 15th, 2012

Kingston, Ont’s finest musical exports The Tragically Hip are going to be busy guys over the next little while.

The group announced a 17-date Canadian tour, which starts in Cranbrook, BC at RecPlex on January 19, and ends in Toronto on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14 for all of you single folks out there) at the Air Canada Centre.

The Arkells will be opening the shows.

Tickets for all the shows go on sale to the general public on Oct. 19/Oct 20 at 10 a.m. (local time), and will set you back between $35.00 – $99.50, plus the usual service gouging.

If you want to beat the rush, a fan presale will start tomorrow (Oct. 16) at 10 a.m. (local time) for registered users of thehip.com.

The band are touring in support of their 13th studio album, “Now For Plan A,” which is out now.

    I wish they would retire to their nice SUV-lives and stop pretending to be Kingston’s finest band. Can we spell m-e-d-i-o-c-r-i-t-y, Tragic Flipsters? O, yes we can. Glad they will miss us. US don’t want this middle-class mundanity either, though. Lucky them.

    The Hip are far from mediocre, in my opinion. This string of shows will be enjoyed by many fans who would agree, they are the best thing to come out of Kingston, ON. I can’t wait to get my hands on some tickets; Toronto always appreciates them!
