Is Marymoor Park the same location that The Hip played with the WOMAD Festival? That was a big place. If it is the same venue this will be their biggest show around here outside of festival appearances.

Hello:

I was at the WOMAD show.
Marymoore Park is a great locale for music. Not too big and they have a beer and wine garden.
I just purchased my tickets today. Can't believe they be back here so soon! The Moore show was great. I do hope they don't repeat the same set-list from the Moore. :wink:

Cheers,

Rob

Hey rsorbo, were you one of the other dozen fans at the Q+A with the Hip? I went from that to the discussion on Woody Guthry with Billy Bragg, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) under a giant old tree. That was a music geeks day in paradise. This next show should prove to be epic. The Hip always rip it up in Seattle.

P.S.
Don't worry about a repeat set list, lighting never strikes twice nor do The Tragically Hip.

Friends of Marymoor Park
http://www.marymoor.org/gettingthere.htm

Marymoor Park is 15 miles east of downtown Seattle and 5 miles east of Bellevue, Washington



From I-405 at SR-520 in Bellevue:

Take SR- 520 eastbound to West Lake Sammamish Pkwy NE in Redmond - 5 miles
Take the W. Lake Sammamish Pkwy Exit ("exit only" right lane – exit for Redmond Towne Center).
At the bottom of the off-ramp, turn right.
Go 1 block to the traffic light at Marymoor Way. This is the Marymoor Park west entrance.
Turn left into the park.

From Seattle:

Take SR-520 east from I-5 across the Evergreen Point floating bridge.
At I-405, follow directions above.
or:
Take I-90 east across floating bridge and across Mercer Island to I-405.
Head north on I-405.
At SR-520 eastbound, follow directions above.


Marymoor Park west entrance is served by King County Bus Routes 249 and 256
These routes also serve the Marymoor West entrance (Rowing Club)


Marymoor Park east entrance is served by King County Bus Routes 253, 266, 268, 269, and 922
(stop at 180th Ave. NE & NE 68th St., 0.5 miles from the park)

Gonna be an awesome show! Great weather, great location! Cannot wait!! For those of you out-of-towners, allow a little extra time for traffic...sometimes, travelling across the HWY 520 bridge can take a while from Seattle. Just a heads up. Travel safely and enjoy!!!
