SONIC CONCERTS PRESENTS THE TRAGICALLY HIP
FULLY AND COMPLETELY TOUR IN HALIFAX, APRIL 11


Reissue of iconic 3rd album, Fully Completely, available Nov. 17 as 2-CD Deluxe, Digital Deluxe Version, Vinyl Edition and Super Deluxe Edition

To commemorate the re-issue of Fully Completely, The Tragically Hip have announced a North American ‘Fully And Completely’ tour. Commencing in January 2015, the tour will take in major venues across Canada and the United States where Fully Completely will be played in its entirety. The tour stops at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax on Saturday, April 11.
 Fully Completely, the third full-length album by The Tragically Hip, was originally released on October 6, 1992. Fully Completely reached #1 in Canada and went on to sell more than a million copies (certified Diamond by Music Canada in January 2007) while spawning hit singles “Locked in the Trunk of a Car”, “Courage” (For Hugh McLennan), “At the Hundredth Meridian” and “Fifty Mission Cap”, “Looking For A Place To Happen”, “Wheat Kings” and “Fully Completely”.

Critically acclaimed for more than two decades, The Tragically Hip has been at the heart of the Canadian musical zeitgeist, evoking a strong emotional connection between their music and their fans that remains unrivalled in this country.  A five-piece group of friends including Rob Baker (guitar), Gord Downie (vocals, guitar), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar) and Gord Sinclair (bass), who grew up in Kingston, Ontario, The Hip has achieved the enviable status of a band that enjoys both mass popularity with more than 8 million albums sold worldwide, as well as peer recognition through 14 Juno Awards from more than a dozen recordings.  Their studio catalogue includes their self-titled debut album The Tragically Hip (1987), Up To Here (1989), Road Apples (1991), Fully Completely (1992), Day For Night (1994), Trouble At The Henhouse (1996), Phantom Power (1998), Music @ Work (2000), In Violet Light (2002), In Between Evolution (2004), World Container (2006), We Are The Same (2009) and Now For Plan A (2012). The band is currently in the studio working on new material.
