Toronto Proclaims August 10 As Tragically Hip Day!

Posted on August 10, 2016

Toronto, August 10 JUST became extra special: it’s now Tragically Hip day!

Mayor John Tory honoured the band with their own day in the city with this announcement:

Today makes perfect sense–The Tragically Hip is in town for their Man Machine Poem tour, playing the first of three sold-out nights in T.O.

The band have received word of the special occasion and thanked the city for a day that’s all their own:

It’s a bittersweet moment–The Tragically Hip has announced this would be the iconic Canadian group’s final tour, with the last show happening in their hometown of Kingston on August 20.

Can’t make it? Don’t worry–the performance will be broadcast across the country via CBC.

Are you heading to the show tonight, or any of the last tour dates? Let us know in the comments.
