Tragically HipIt’s hard to believe it has already been a week since iconic band, The Tragically Hip, kicked off their Canadian tour at Cranbrook’s Western Financial Place. It was in October when The Tragically Hip first announced that they were going to start their tour off in the East Kootenays.  And saying the community was excited would be an understatement.  The show sold out almost instantly and soon the hotels and restaurants were booked full with reservations.

The show itself was electrifying for everyone in the crowd, sure it had a lot to do with The Tragically Hip, but it was also due to the venue.  There just isn’t a bad seat in Western Financial Place and it has become the perfect spot for artists like Nickleback, Bryan Adams, ZZ Top, Bob Dylan, Great Big Sea, George Jones, Terri Clark and George Canyon to put on top rate performances.

Congratulations to all the staff who put the show together, you worked very hard and it showed. Can’t wait to see what else you have up your sleeves!
