After doing a small club tour around the country, the country's biggest band are ready to rock the rest of the country.
This fall the Tragically Hip did an intimate club tour of Canada, hitting a mere four cities but playing several shows at each one. The venues they played were just about the size of venues they'd usually play south of the border, though the band is custom to selling out stadiums here at home.
Now the band plans to play a proper tour behind their upcoming release World Container that was released earlier this month.
Here's where they're headed:
