The Tragically Hip play Edmonton July 28th and July 30th, with the final show of their Man Machine Poem tour in their hometown of Kingston, Ont, on Aug. 20th. CBC will broadcast that final show on all their platforms; tv, radio, and on their website and YouTube channels.
Fans across Canada had difficulty getting tickets to the tour when they sold out in minutes, only to reappear almost instantly on reselling websites for incredible markups. Lead singer Gord Downie announced in May that he suffers from terminal brain cancer, but has responded well enough to treatment to embark on one final eleven-date tour with the band beginning July 22nd.

The band will donate a portion of ticket sales to the Sunnybrook Foundation.
