The Tragically Hip announced they would be touring Canada for the last time after lead singer Gordie Downie’s was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Partial proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Sunnybrook Foundation, a hospital specializing in cancer treatments in Toronto.
The latest ticket announcement comes after what the band described as “overwhelming demand,” which saw tickets for the Man Machine Poem Tour sell out within minutes of going on general sale last month. Since then tickets have sprung up on resale sites such as Stubuhub.com with prices quickly reaching $3,500 or more.
