If you can’t beat the scalpers find away around them. Toronto City Councillor Josh Colle has a solution to the ticket shortage upsetting many Tragically Hip fans who couldn’t get tickets to their final tour…throw a free show at Downsview Park.
Colle, who considers himself a huge Hip fan, says the park, which has hosted as many as 450,000 for bands such as the Rolling Stones during Sars Stock would provide a perfect venue. He said he’s made some inroads with Live Nation and Eggplant Entertainment through his work on the city’s Music Advisory Council. He sent the band a note yesterday afternoon.
