Wow, great show. I'll leave all the details to others. Just a quick observation: Gordie was wound up really tight tonight and in fine form. He's gotta cool it a bit on his strumming - three broken strings! First one during Gus, then Nashville and finally NOIS. He was so frustrated that he even dropped his guitar intentionally as he grabbed his other one after the broken string during NOIS.

An amazing show, and an amazing setlist!!!

Firstly, very nice to meet mrlayance and princess (lynette). Both are very cool and nice people.

Now on with the show...

The boys were on fire tonight. Gord was jumping all over the stage, throwing his guitar, mic-stand, aqnd grooving throughout. Mel and I both noticed how energized Rob Baker was tonight aswell. I've seen the Hip a dozen times, and that's the most energized I have seen him. I enjoyed when he went right in front of Johnny and was giving'er during Nashville.

The new building was amazing, and the sound was great. People say the Hip have lost a step, which is completetly untrue. The Hip are in their prime and continue to rock from start to finish.

All in all, one of the best shows I've seen thus far.

Can't wait for the Juno's...

What a great time, and it was so nice to meet Ponch (Sean) and Melanie. They were sitting in the seats next to us!

Gord was a lot of fun, he was fighting with his mic, riding it,,, all the good stuff. Near the end he pushed his mic over and had his arms crossed cause he WON. It was super funny.

The crowd loved every minute of the show, everyone was so cool, no crazy pushing or shoving, just a bunch of Hip fans respecting each other and enjoying the show. I really like that!

Everytime I go to a concert, I love the Hip a little more! Lance will have to bring me more often!

Great Show! Gord was on fire, but his gear was not. He broke strings atleast 4 different times and his ear monitor was thrown to the ground. I love the screen setup, bring great emotion to the show.

Stand outs for me
Wheat Kings
Escape
Three Pistols
Boots!

The new MTS centre sounded great.

Nice to meet some more hipbasers, Ponch and Mel.

That was, hands down, the best version of 100th meridian I have ever heard.

A microphone and a mic stand, go. C'mon, here's your big chance.

Brilliant.

How does one obtain a copy of the show? There were so many excellent tangents and priceless moments. I'd pay top dollar!

Lance, those photos are great! Looks like you were able to move around pretty freely as your photos cover all the angles of the stage. It is good to see that there is enough lighting with the stage setup to get some good shots.

Can't wait 'til Friday!
