**** SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - Oct 8, 2019 ****

To all our friends and fans……
As most of you probably know, The Hip Show has been going for 11 years now. In that time, we have continued to expand and develop not only our song list, show, and fan base, but also put new pins in the map of this great country, of the gigs we have had the opportunity, and pleasure, to play.

Over the years we have enjoyed many great shows, and played for many thousands of Hip fans from Vancouver Island to Nova Scotia.
This past year alone we have played for over 50,000 people. No small feat, and one we take great pride in being able to say.

But, with all those great things having happened, we have also realized that this amount of travelling and performing has been taking us away from some of the other, more important things in our lives, family, health, home, and yes, even our jobs.

That is why we feel it is now time we take a break from The Hip Show. (no this not another April Fool’s joke)
Is there ever a right time to do something like this? Who knows but , after our Calgary show at the Grey Eagle casino on Nov 2nd, instead of our usual winter off and see you next spring routine, (as we have done so for many years) we will be taking an extended hiatus.

We want to be clear that we are not breaking up, (no need to go cueing up that Greg Kihn song) we will just not be actively seeking shows through 2020.

So from Joe, Matt, Dave, Brad, and Mike, we just want to say thank you for all the good times and memories you have helped us create by being a part of our journey to continue the legacy and the music of The Tragically Hip that we have always done our best to bring to you.

See you in 2021, (maybe sooner, because who knows, we might get bored, start missing each other, and have to play some music together, but for now…..)
