Maybe this is better, I would have wanted to be at this one the least.

I think overall they are getting really tight. You sense mid season form or mid tour form is here.



Funny - and for me, this is the one I would have wanted to be at the most.

Great setlist.

I guess it's a setlist thing. On this tour it probably doesn't matter if you're there what they play.

Watching all the shows from my couch, I just enjoyed this one the least.

I think that just goes to show how deep their catalog is.

The have a wealth of goods for many different tastes.

Vancouver 2 is still the top dog I think or the We are the Same show. Edmonton 2?

Awesome to see that Thugs was back on the setlist. It seems to get played every time they are through Calgary (I know because I was chasing that song for a long time, and am no where near Calgary). Anyone know if there is a connection with that song to the city?

Great scope last night from the top of the rink. If you're on here, thanks.

That's pretty close to my perfect set list -- anything with Dire Wolf gets bumped up by me. Gord sounded great. There's been a lot of focus on him, obviously, but holy smokes the guys behind him sound amazing. I've seen a fair number shows, especially earlier in their career from Up to Here to Day for Night period, and what always struck me was how the band got better and better.

No different now, and amazing that 30 years in they still impress musically. That ABAC intro was fantastic. Courage had a really solid jam at the end -- not sure if it's online anywhere, but check out Gord S. in the last few minutes. I don't think I have ever seen him that animated on stage.

Here's a video of Gord's heartfelt speech to the crowd last night. Starts around the 1:55 mark. I can't watch even 10 seconds of it without tearing up. :(

A Hip set list is like a box of chocolates..you never know which one you're going to get.
