One of Canada's most time-honored rock bands, The Tragically Hip, makes a return visit to Seneca Allegany Events Center in Salamanca as part of a just-announced tour in support of its soon-to-be-released 13th studio album, "Now for Plan A." Tickets for the 2,400-seat capacity show start at $55 and go on sale Friday, Sept. 21, at noon through Ticketmaster and all Seneca Casino box offices.

The Tragically Hip first formed in 1983 and have since earned 14 Juno Awards - Canada's highest honor for music. The band blends edgy rock with a twinge of blues and country, and lead singer Gordon Downie's vocals deliver a one-a-of-kind timbre. Some of the most popular hits throughout the years include "Courage," "New Orleans Is Sinking," "Poets," "Ahead by a Century," "Bobcaygeon" and "Grace, Too."

The Tragically Hip's first single released from "Now for Plan A," "At Transformation," premiered on "Hockey Night in Canada" back in May during the playoffs. "Streets Ahead" will be the next track released this fall.

The Tragically Hip last performed at Seneca Allegany Events Center in November 2009. Since then, Seneca Casinos added two jumbo-sized high-definition video screens on either side of the venue and sharpened its audio system.

Ticket prices for the show range from $55 to $95, and the furthest seat is 100 feet from the stage. In addition, Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel's expanded hotel tower will have a portion of its 201 new rooms open by Nov. 17, allowing more "Hip fans" the opportunity to stay overnight on property.
