Tickets are still available for The Hip

Comments

Tickets are still available for The Tragically Hip concert in Estevan on Monday, June 8 at Spectra Place.

Terry Massey from the Thirteenth Letter, who has acted as a consultant with the City of Estevan with their previous concerts, said that ticket sales have been steady, and there are still some great seats available.

He promised that the show would offer songs that fans have heard from the award-winning Canadian rock group during the last 20 years.

Massey recognizes that a lot of people have seen The Hip play elsewhere before, but the reason that the public keeps coming back to watch them is that each show is unique and entertaining.

The Hip has enjoyed great success during a recording career that has spanned nearly a quarter century, as many of their songs have been No. 1 hits on Canada's rock charts, starting with "Blow at High Dough" and "New Orleans is Sinking" in 1989. They have gained fame for such songs as "Fifty Mission Cap," "Bobcaygeon," "Courage," "Ahead by a Century," "Poets" and much more.

Many of their albums have attained No. 1 status for sales in Canada, too.

Their songs often celebrate Canadian culture and history.

They have been touring to promote their latest album, "Now for Plan A," which was released last fall. Their travels took them to Europe in June and early July, and now they're back in North America. 

The Rural Alberta Advantage (RAA) will serve as the concert's opening act. Massey said that the RAA has performed with The Hip previously, and they're an up-and-coming act.

They're the kind of group that will one day achieve big success, Massey said, and leave spectators saying "I remember those guys when they opened for the Hip in Estevan."
