The Tragically Hip Show Rescheduled

The Tragically Hip Added to Flogging Molly Show


Friday, August 2

After a torrential downpour hit Buffalo during the Tragically Hip’s set last Friday, the band was forced to cancel the rest of their show after just five songs. The band and promoters promised to reschedule the show and now they’re delivering on that promise. The Tragically Hip will join Flogging Molly and Lowest of the Low at the Outer Harbor concert site on Friday, August 2nd.

Here is the official press release from the Buffalo Outer Harbor Concerts:

Flogging Molly
Lowest Of The Low

4:00pm lots open / 5:00pm gate / 6:45pm show

off Fuhrmann Boulevard 
Downtown Buffalo, NY 

On July 19, The Tragically Hip were forced to shorten their show due to thunderstorms and torrential rain but before even leaving the stage – something frontman Gord Downie was hesitant to do until safety of fans and crew were a potential concern – they immediately made the decision that they would make a quick return with a show for their dedicated fans in Western New York.

By changing their schedule and through the courtesy of Flogging Molly and Lowest of The Low, The Tragically Hip are able to join the show scheduled on Friday, August 2 for what is bound to be an epic festival-type show on downtown Buffalo’s waterfront!


Patrons who purchased tickets to the previous 7/19 Tragically Hip show will receive a FREE ticket to this show. Patrons that purchased tickets online or over the phone through Ticketmaster will automatically be issued a print at home ticket directly to the email account provided.

Starting Thursday, July 25 at noon, patrons that purchased tickets in person at any Ticketmaster outlet (i.e Walmart), the Town Ballroom box office or the After Dark office should bring either a receipt from that purchase or ticket stub from the 7/19 show to The Town Ballroom box office, the After Dark office at 630 Elmwood or to the box office tent the night to redeem it for your free ticket.

Patrons who purchased tickets from another ticket provider or reseller will need to contact that seller to receive their reissued tickets.

All tickets purchased for Flogging Molly/Lowest of the Low show will also be honored.”
