    Saw the guy 5 times, including twice last year on the final tour.

    It will be weird without them, just kinda figured these guys would always be around...

    In my Early 20's I bought my Girlfriend at the time tickets for us to go see Her favorite band "The Hip" at GM place. By The time of the show 3 months later, we had broken up a day before the concert. Knowing this wasn't going to be one of those "On a break break ups" and desperate for a date to fill the other ticket on short notice I called my ex girlfriends best friend and Invited her. This was the same "best friend" who was the reason we broke up in the first place and i found my self in such a dilemma.

    Great concert and from what I recall 1/2 a dozen encores. Thanks Gord!

    RIP

    Always said I wanted to see The Hip and always put it off till next time when they came to town. Finally decided to go when they came on the last tour and wish I seen them more. Felt privileged to be at that show and to see that legend crush it.
