It was a pretty emotional summer for Tragically Hip fans across the country after we found out that Gord Downie was sick and that the summer tour would likely be their last. He’s been shepherding us along all of these years, narrating events around us that we might not have ever considered, or at least showing us a different perspective that somehow always makes sense.
Now that the tour is over, what’s to become of our beloved Tragically Hip? Is that it? Just gone from the cultural zeitgeist only to be pulled out on future camping trips and Canada Days?
Don’t count them out just yet. There’s a documentary in the works, and the guys are collaborating with the same guys who made a different doc about Canada’s other most beloved band. Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage. It looks like The Hip doc will be out sometime next year, take a look at some more details here.
