This is so beautiful, and yet absolutely heartbreaking in equal measure. What a guy.



I thought I did a pretty good job of holding it together last night. Then he said this and I became the human Niagara Falls.

You can turn it off. So be my guest! Lol


It was awesome and thanks! There was one moment when you panned right, maybe end of Courage, and a guy a few seats over was full out double fist pump. It was so cool. I also wondered if end of show lady in the row infront of you knew there were 300 or so watching.

Yet another great show from das hip! There is such great energy and emotion coming off that stage, it truly is surreal. Courage was the stand out for me last night, the crowd dialled it up more than a few decibels on that one! Now the Struggle has a name was sent out to all First Nations people in the crowd, that was nice to hear. Nice to meet a couple more hipbasers as well, cheers boys! Time to rest up for a 1100km round trip for Calgary #1 tomorrow!

Unfortunately I doubt many could afford the tickets due to some of the issues mentioned in the song

I think this set appeals to both the "Greatest hits" crowd and the deep cuts crowd as well. Lovely show.

Did anybody get a picture of the Canada Loves The Hip flag that was behind the stage.

Merry Christmas everyone! I finally figured out a half-assed way to convert my video recording of the second Edmonton show from July 30, 2016 to mp3, so here is the link, with art work care of David Bastedo. Not the best conversion, needs a little EQing, but its all there. Link good until Jan. 1, 2017

I will work to get the first Edmonton show up over the next few days.
