The Hip To Play 2013 Salmonfest in Newfoundland

Pin It Now!

The Hip are coming to The Rock!

Word on the street is that The Tragically Hip will be a part of the July 13th concert line-up at the Exploits Valley Salmon Festival that also includes The Eagles as the head-liners. It will be a rare billing slot for Canada's favourite rock & roll band on their home turf, acting as an opener, and I'm sure they will give The Eagles a run for their money. The festival is located in Grand Falls.

The festival website is currently under construction and I don't have any ticket info for you at this time. When I get more confirmed details, I will pass them on. Until then, stockpile your Screech.

The tickets go on-sale on April 26, 2013.

Here's a few more details from the GFW Advertiser...

The Details
Tickets for the Salmon Festival Concert will go on sale Friday, April 26 and will be available to purchase by phone, online, and at Needs convenience stores across the province. A limited number of early bird tickets will be available for the price of $119.75 and after that tickets will cost $134.75.

There will also be a VIP section available with some minor changes from last year. This year, only concertgoers 19 and older will be permitted in the VIP section. VIP tickets are limited, and cost $221. All ticket prices are before taxes and surcharges. Booking information for campsites will come at a later date.

“We consider the price for this level of entertainment to be a bargain price really,” said Hawkins. “We believe we’ve done a great job in getting the level of entertainment we’re getting for the price.”

Hawkins said he expects the early bird and VIP tickets to sell fast, and suggested people get their tickets as soon as possible after they go on sale.

And now a word from our sponsor: Sarcasm >>>>

Thank gawd there's going to be a VIP section... I don't know how you could ever run a quality music festival without separating the herd? Can you believe in the olden days VIP fans and the regular fans actually had to co-mingle? It's true.

Oh, and enjoy this one...
