CBC are teaming up with The Tragically Hip to broadcast the band’s August 20th concert, which is taking place at the Rogers K-Rock Centre in the Hip’s hometown of Kingston, Ontario. The show is the final stop on the band’s sold out, 15-date Man Machine Poem tour. CBC will be broadcasting and streaming the concert live at 8:30 p.m. ET across CBC Television, CBC Radio One, CBC Radio 2, CBC’s YouTube channels, and cbcmusic.ca.
“The Tragically Hip’s enigmatic sound, their poignant and witty lyrics, and the unique, special relationship they have with their fans have helped define and influence our identity as Canadians,” said Heather Conway, executive vice-president, English Services, CBC. “It’s hard to overstate the importance of this tour. CBC and The Hip are so happy to be able to share this event with all Canadians and bring audiences across the country and around the world together to celebrate the moment.”
The concert special is produced by Insight Productions in association with CBC and Man Machine Poem Touring Inc.
