It was a sad farewell for The Tragically Hip as they played their final concert at Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston, Ontario on Saturday night.

The Hip had embarked on their final tour following lead singer Gordon Downie’s terminal brain cancer diagnosis. The band kicked off their Man Machine Poem tour in Victoria and played sold out shows across Canada ending their farewell tour Saturday.

CBC announced their plans to broadcast The Hips final hometown concert across Canada and over 11.7 Canadians tuned in.
