The Tragically Hip, Canadian national heroes, gave their last performance, a grand sendoff at Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston, in August of 2016. At the time, frontman Gord Downie had terminal brain cancer. Upon learning of Downie’s diagnosis, the Hip headed out on a farewell tour of Canada. Downie kept making music, both with his band and solo, after that tour, but the final show, by all accounts, was special. Downie died in 2017 at the age of 53. Last night, though, the Tragically Hip performed one song without him, with their friend and fellow Canadian Feist standing in.
