I concur, not a bad show, weak ass crowd. That's to be expected with so many people unfamiliar with their music showing up for a show, but whos idea was it to hand out glow sticks by the fistful at the door? I mean, come on, you're not allowed to have a bottle cap on your coke but they'll give you hand sized bits of hard plastic. They were being used as irradescent hand grenades for the majority of the evening and at one point people decided it was a good idea to barage the band. Gord shut them down ever so hilariously. "I know maybe in some cultures it's considered polite to throw your shit at performers but last time I checked, it wasn't in this one..." It mostly stopped after that. Anyways, good show definately not the greatest I've been to, but hell, for free I can't complain I had a good time. Got to meet Gibie as well. :music


Good to meet you!

Hey everyone! Havent posted here much (or lately lol).

I was at this show with my best friend, our original seats were infront of the stage but all the way across the floor (like 104) and we ran into a scalper and got sec 119 for 10 bucks...not a bad upgrade (so we like moved to gord's left).

I thought the band was great! Oddly probably one of the best shows (on band performance, they were so tight!) I've been to (Ive seen them about 20 times). We had like 10 seats to ourselves, I danced the whole show, it was great. The crowd on the other hand was lame. Most of the people around me sat for the entire show. My apologies to the older guy infront of me, I believe i accidently hit im in the head several times during Blow. The seats just dont have enough leg room...i wasnt even kicking!

And I wasnt even 'that drunk hipfan'...they closed all of the bars except for one once the band went on (I think, not sure of the timing, I went for a quick beer run after the 3rd or 4th song and had to walk halfway around the arena, got to the 'open' bar. Long lineup and everyone was herded into the section, resembled the front row of a wwe event, so i decided to get water and enjoy the show instead...ACC lost 30 bucks for that decision...

I have never seen a crowd move so much, and yet sit for most of the show. I mean even the floor to the left of the stage didnt even seem that excited when Gord waded into the right floor...Ive never seen someone go that far into the crowd...I was losing my shit in my seat, meanwhile the floor crowd is just standing there...so disappointing.

But the show was great, Im so glad they played love is a first, and Gord was amazing during Grace..I love the primate routine he does! Can't wait to the next show!

i'll never get why bands of the hip's stature ever even agree to do these kinds of things.

cash is king, i guess.

Have had this show in my rotation all year. I remember convincing my sister to go down to the ACC for Free Hip tickets, and she did. Her tickets were about 20 rows back on the floor.
Going to spin this again today before rotating it out of my bootleg playlist.
