Tragically Hip To Release Standalone Live Album Live At The Roxy

The Tragically Hip have announced plans to release a standalone live album, Live At The Roxy, which will drop on June 24 through Universal Music Canada.

The band also dropped the live version of “She Didn’t Know,” as a preview of the live album.

The May 3, 1991 live performance will be released as a stand-alone album on digital streaming platforms, vinyl and CD, after being remastered for the Hip’s 30th anniversary Road Apples box set last year.

Hip bassist Gord Sinclair said in a statement, “I remember the Roxy show like it was yesterday. We had spent a year on the road before recording Road Apples and got right back in the saddle when we finished. The new tunes worked great live and by the time we got to L.A. we were firing on all pistons.”

The album includes classic songs like “Little Bones,” “Cordelia,” “Three Pistols,” “Long Time Running,” “Blow at High Dough,” and a nine-minute version of “New Orleans Is Sinking” known as the “Killer Whale Tank” version, featuring a mid-song story about cleaning an aquarium.
