Tonight was The Tragically Hip’s final show from Kingston, Ontario…their hometown. The lovely people at the CBC were kind enough to stream it live, no charge, ad-free, globally…and it led to one of the most incredible nights ever – watching that show, hearing the soundtrack of my days, feeling the feels….it was magic. It was a glorious celebration of a band whose contribution to the national identity has been HUGE, but who have maintained a humble, Everyman quality about them for nearly 30 years…so.great.
I think most Canadians were watching – the Prime Minister was even there!
I hope that you will check out the replay when it’s posted on YouTube – it is SO worth your while. Three encores, friends. Three. Wowza! It’s always a great day to be Canadian, but some days – like today – are just a wee bit greater. 🙂
