The Hip revisit Fully Completely with tour

The Tragically Hip are coming to Kelowna Feb. 7, with their Fully and Completely Tour.

  • Oct. 8, 2014 6:00 p.m.

To commemorate the re-issue of Fully Completely, The Tragically Hip have announced a North American Fully And Completely tour.

Commencing in January, 2015, the tour will take place in major venues across Canada and the U.S.,  where The Hip will perform Fully Completely in its entirety.

Tickets for the North American dates, including Kelowna’s Prospera Place Feb. 7,  go on sale Saturday, Oct. 18 at 10 a.m. local time.

The third full-length album by The Hip was originally released Oct. 6, 1992. Fully Completely reached #1 in Canada and went on to sell more than one million copies (certified diamond by Music Canada in January 2007) while spawning hit singles Locked in the Trunk of a Car, Courage (For Hugh McLennan), At the Hundredth Meridian and Fifty Mission Cap, Looking For A Place To Happen, Wheat Kings and Fully Completely.

Critically acclaimed for more than two decades, The Hip has been at the heart of the Canadian musical zeitgeist, evoking a strong emotional connection between their music and their fans that remains unrivalled in this country. A five-piece group of friends including Rob Baker (guitar), Gord Downie (vocals, guitar), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar) and Gord Sinclair (bass), who grew up in Kingston, Ont., The Hip has achieved the enviable status of a band that enjoys both mass popularity with more than eight million albums sold worldwide, as well as peer recognition through 14 Juno awards from more than a dozen recordings.

Their studio catalogue includes their self-titled debut album  (1987), Up To Here (1989), Road Apples (1991), Fully Completely (1992), Day For Night (1994), Trouble At The Henhouse (1996), Phantom Power (1998), Music @ Work (2000), In Violet Light (2002), In Between Evolution (2004), World Container (2006), We Are The Same (2009) and Now For Plan A (2012).
