38 Years Old, Fort York Style


I still think about that June 24 Tragically Hip show at Fort York.  Here's the review I wrote the next morning.  Besides being a fantastic show with great audio and a perfect venue there was "38 Years Old".  My 13 for 38 entry sheds some light on why this was so special.  Prior to that pretty June night about six months ago the Hip hadn't played "38 Years Old" live since July 24, 1993.  That's thirteen years in the wilderness, thirteen years without playing a fan favourite and gem from their breakout album, Up To Here.

Someone at posted this performance on YouTube.  I really like this footage because it was taken from almost the exact spot I was standing.
