If you didn’t manage to get your hands on Tragically Hip tickets (or you don’t want to pay a ridiculous amount of $$ to get tix from scaplers aka: jerk faces), we feel your pain… but there may be hope for us all!!!
Many Hip fans have petitioned for the CBC to help make the band’s farewell tour a part of the public domain.
At this moment, CBC is in talks with the Tragically Hip with hopes of coming to an agreement for broadcast (and possibly live streaming?) rights to their final show.
A CBC communications big wig had the following to say:
“We are interested in airing the Tragically Hip’s final show and are having conversations with the band to see if we can make it happen.”
Fingers, toes and eyes crossed here.
