TOUR DATE: 2012-06-30 – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON


The Tragically Hip will be headlining a concert in Niagara-on-the-Lake Canada Day weekend.

Although town councillors are struggling with the logistics of up to 20,000 people arriving on the Commons and the impact on surrounding residents and businesses, the California concert production company planning the event has so far asked only for an extension to the noise bylaw. AEG Live is scheduling five bands beginning at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, June 30 at Butler’s Barracks on John Street, with the Tragically Hip performing, accompanied by a video and light show, at the end of the evening.

With council’s support of the noise bylaw extension Monday, the show will wrap up at 11 p.m.—no later, promised Vanessa Arscott, the local representative of the production company.
