And the winner is Gore, no Bush - oh we can't decide. We read and we read and read some more. We received more than 2100 reasons why fans of The Hip should be our delegates at the upcoming "Evening With" shows.
Our editorial team -- Ross Walton, JAM! Online Editor John Williams and Executive Producer JAM!, John Sakamoto were continually amazed by the articulation, passion and the variety of responses to this contest.
This was hard! It's hard to pick just one person per show. We picked people who made us laugh, who needed a night out, who are self-proclaimed video experts, who are great writers or great beggars. We think we have a great crew of reporter/videographers who will deliver to the world, passionate and insightful reporting at every stop on The Tragically Hip tour.
So, congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who entered.
Below you'll find the names of the fans who have won backstage access and the opportunity to report on, photograph and video a Hip concert. If your name appears below, you will be contacted shortly with complete details on where to be the day of the show.
In the meantime, thanks again -- and make sure to check back here starting Wednesday, November 15 -- the date of the first show on The Hip's Fall/Winter tour -- when you'll be able to see video, photos and set lists, and read what each Hip Fan has to say about the show.
Also don't forget the transcript for the JAM! chat with The Tragically Hip on Monday, November 13 is right here.
