So The Tragically Hip can finally claim they are as popular as Justin Bieber, Paul McCartney, and Monty Python.
Pretty much on par with sliced bread with how HUGE they are, if you ask me. Reports are coming in that the Tragically Hip tour across Canadian venues are selling out within seconds, and the Ottawa one varied in how long it took. If you went in person to go grab your tickets in person, the tickets were all gone in 30 minutes… And woe if you tried getting them online. They’re saying Ottawa tickets vanished within minutes of the website going live.
So how does this compare to J Biebs, McCartney, and Monty Python?
There aren’t EXACT numbers with how quickly the online ticket vendor sold out, but we’ll be finding out in time how fast they went in Ottawa. But in Vancouver? People had less than a minute. Who knows? Maybe they beat Bieber’s time over there.
