The Tragically Hip Reels Them In

Tragically Hip_309Greeting a sea of hipsters garbed in fedoras and assorted NHL hockey jerseys, The Tragically Hip brought their Fully and Completely Tour to House of Blues and fed fans an enormous helping of classic songs. Lead by the charismatic Gordon Downie (and his interpretive dancing), the band began the set with “Grace, Too” and “My Music at Work,” which Downie sang in his signature screeching falsetto while casually strolling across the stage to his own rhythm. After warming up the crowd with a few more fan favorites, the band played their classic 1993 Fully Completely album in its entirety. “Courage,” “Looking for a Place to Happen” and “At the Hundredth Meridian” sucked the crowd into a time machine. At one point, Downie sarcastically checked his watch before tossing an imaginary fishing rod into the audience, collectively reeling them in to an incredible performance. ★★★✩✩
