The Hip Release Summer Tour Dates
There was a somber tone that shadowed over Canadians yesterday after learning that Gord Downie, lead singer of the Tragically Hip has terminal brain cancer.
The band, which formed in 1984 in Kingston, told us in a statment that they planed to launch another tour this summer and after a dozen albums and numerous tours, the band said they will try to make this tour their best ever.
On Tuesday afternoon, there was a live update on the status of Hip frontman Gord Downie from Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
Downie’s doctor Dr. James Perry spoke to his condition. The Tragically Hip’s managers followed with some details of a summer tour.
This morning tour dates were posted on the band’s website, with 11 concerts scheduled across Canada.
Tickets will go on sale Friday June 3, 2016
