Downsview Park - July 1, 2011

Pin It Now!

The boys have announced that they will be playing Canada Day at Downsview Park in Toronto along with Weezer, Broken Social Scene, Hey Rosetta! and Buck 65. I'm going to copy/paste the information as it was given out by the band. This will save me some time to keep plugging away at my Lyric Art, plus it's a skill that I don't want to lose...practice makes perfect, right?

Hi Folks,

We are excited to announce that we will be spending Canada Day in Toronto! We’ll be bringing our friends Weezer, Broken Social Scene, Hey Rosetta! and Buck 65 to join in the festivities.

Starting Monday February 28th at NOON we will be offering you the chance to purchase VIP tickets to the show.

Only registered users of as of Sunday February 27 at 11:59pm EST. will have access to these tickets.

The VIP ticket will give you ‘Fast Pass‘ access into the venue, access to the VIP Area with its own cash bar, food vendors and washrooms. The VIP area is 19+ only. There are also a limited number of VIP parking passes available, that will give you access to a separate parking lot. Only one person per car will require a VIP parking pass. You will need to bring photo ID to gain access to the parking lot, as well as the ‘Fast Pass’ entrance.

We will also be offering you a GA pre-sale starting at 10:00am EST on Thursday. There will be a limited number of early bird GA tickets available that day.

That's right. You may be able to lay your eyes on actual VIPs!!!!!! You may even be able to mingle or use the same port-a-potty. Bring your camera phones. Tiered pricing and VIP seating works SO well at Leaf games, I'm glad to see it's filtered into Canadian rock and roll shows. Is MLSE involved in this??? Anyway, for twice the price you can avoid the Fans and make a quick get-a-way taboot! Woo-hoo! Just don't drink too many of them VIP cocktails.

The Early Bird tickets are where the value is. The $10 off alleviates the TicketBastard service charges a bit. Per-band, if you're a fan of them all, this a dream. Even if you're a fan of 2 or 3 of the acts, that's less than $20 a pop. Obviously The Hip are the Meat & Potatoes of this celebration dinner and most people are paying $50 straight-up for The Hip all day, even if it is just for 1 set. I would expect 18-20 songs with 2-3 debuts and nothing else too unexpected...Highway Girl will not be busted out. Greatest Hits for the Greatest Fans....and the VIPs of course.

Don't forget you can follow us and hang with the other HipHeads on both Facebook and Twitter.
