The ticket is a bit faded but the memory is still intact. Here’s an excerpt written by Steve Newton of the Georgia Straight reviewing the show from July 13, 1995 at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium: “It’s good to be on traditional Musqueam territory again,” announced Downie as the Hip rambled onstage, its arrival resulting in a swift surge toward the stage and the instant perching of multitudes of young women on male shoulders. The band launched right into its popular concert rave-up, “Blow at High Dough”, and continued bashing out its rough-hewn hits—plus new tunes such as “Springtime in Vienna” and “Gift Shop”—for the next 90 minutes.

As usual, concertmaster Downie held the Tragically Hip’s reins in a loose grip, mostly allowing the riff-driven beast to run wild, but reeling it in when the time came to lecture some goof on the hazards of tossing shoes at the stage. At one point, the charismatic crooner gestured at an airplane that was circling intrusively above, trailing a banner advertising a fast-food franchise. “Hey, look everybody,” he proclaimed, “Bruce Allen!”
