"Thank you people, for keeping me pushing."
Those were the words that took Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip into their performance of "Fiddler's Green" at their Aug. 20 show in Kingston, Ont., last summer, which closed their sold-out — and tear-filled — 2016 tour. Now, below, you can replay that performance and get nice and teary-eyed any time.
You can also tune in to CBC-TV on Saturday, June 24, at 8 p.m. (9 p.m. AT, 9:30 p.m. NT) for a commercial-free airing of The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration and relive the band's final stop of that 2016 Man Machine Poem tour. You can also catch it online: Facebook.com/CBCMusic, YouTube.com/CBCMusic and CBCMusic.ca.
We'll see you there.
