It’s in Dutch, but there are some cool photos of the band. Any Dutch fans out there want to translate the review for us?
Here’s what babelfish had to say:
On the street, for the entrance of Tivoli, groups people hang around. Many Canadians with the flag of their country around the shoulders. Compatriots of the rockband Tragically hip the that complete world travels around to see their heroes to the work in small European rooms, instead of the enormous our that link at home does fill up. It promises what kind of what will come. Taxi to the ocean open the show, just like a day rather in the Paradiso also sold off. Immediately strong and continues against go there in wide the twenty minutes speeltijd starts the link which they have. And also them are the group Canadians who range the first do not populate escape. Zanger Just Posthumus: “This one’s for you mounties!” The songs and the muzikanten stand if a house and to this is see that taxi to the ocean that a new cd brings out soon, clearly has grown with respect to a half year has been suffered at 3VOOR12/Utrecht the jubileumfeest in the slope. On the podium for sold off Tivoli the link is entirely in its element. mail humus: “we do simply net or you all for us come be.” The “mounties” shout with joy if their own heroes the podium rises. Although at zanger Gordon Downie already halfway the first number the sweat with straaltjes of its body flows, come the first two songs still what measure. When he afterwards however himself puts on an acoustic jet ear, the link really comes on pace. Behind on the podium drummer Johnny Fay entirely goes loose, beside front man Downie leaps bass player girds Sinclair and with its bass jet ear and on sides on the podium the gitaristen play Robby nurse and Paul Langlois hurry themselves motionless. That the songs are not complete particular and frequently what is possible too long spun out, nobody in Tivoli deren. These link live visit undergoing a special experience is and public, dertigers and veertigers from several parts of the country, do that willingly. Publicly characterises immediately how long the link goes along already; the link is already about twenty years busy and stood in 1994, on Pinkpop. Of a link which it applied earring earring-repertoire played the gezelschap developed into stadionband pur sang. That is see to the way plays on Downie publicly: he does that especially at people who cede to a couple meter of the podium, and hardly at the fans on the first range. podium animal Downie attracts not only the attention with its hypnotising voice, which most does think still of REM’s Michael Stipe, but also by its mimicry and movements. Dances which frequently what is houterig, but at music are appropriate and on a certain manner nevertheless (tragically) hip. the two gitaristen stand largely play an hour and a half nearly motionless, but sat there in the same an hour and a half a time beside. If the now hippe concerned headstock songs, long solos in the style of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, or harder rock with more electronic sounded. That testifies nevertheless of class. Also a quartet travelled with roadies is busy during the concert. Not only there a package snaren becomes doorheen nervous (particularly Downie break them always during playing), also the microphone of the zanger is from time to time replaced by a dry land. (If he bends forward itself, the sweat with three jets of its cap runs.) After an hour and a half the link disappears to behind, the meanwhile jumping public in the room chants hip! Hip! Hip! and rightly a toegift wants. Downie take the word: Thank you for calling US back. We appreciate it. And ‘ The hip ‘ play songs still two. Then it has been really done. The Canadian film plough of the supporter club is satisfied, Dutch fans turn homeward and the tourkaravaan can travel further. Tragically hip and taxi to the ocean seen: Tivoli, Wednesday 12 July 2006
