The information online about this show is scarce, so I hope that by dropping this post, someone else who was at the show will help fill in the blanks. At this point, the Tragically Hip had gotten big enough in Canada that they were starting to play large impersonal venues. I heard that they were playing in an auditorium in Burlington, which would be an experience not to be missed. If I remember correctly, I drove down with my friend Avrum and we took in what was probably the best show of theirs I ever saw.
Memorial Auditorium, Burlington, VT
