Published Oct 15, 2012Canuck rock heroes the Tragically Hip released their new album Now for Plan A earlier this month, and now the beloved group are preparing to promote it with a tour of their home and native land.
The national outing launches in British Columbia in January. From there, the band will head across the Prairies and travel east all the way to the Maritimes before heading back and wrapping up in Toronto on Valentine's Day. All told, they will play 17 Canadian shows in a little less than a month, and all of the dates are with Arkells.
