It was a full house on Sunday night as fans of The Tragically Hip packed Rogers Arena to bid farewell to the iconic Canadian band.

The Hip have 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 are playing two sold out shows here in Vancouver.

If you weren’t able to make it last night, here are 14 photos of The Tragically Hip rocking out at Rogers Arena (and for those lucky enough to have tickets for Tuesday’s show, think of this as a preview).
