So, I’m sure many of my followers already know I’m from Canada. The Tragically Hip have been a band I have listened to and loved for years. I grew up listening to their music, but not at my own will… at first. Their music was forced on me at a very young age by my older sister. Every year I aged and every time they released a new album, I grew to love them more and more. Their songwriting and lyrics are some of the best I’ve personally heard. I think I was just too young to “fully completely” 😉 appreciate their talent at the time.
Over the years, I was lucky enough to get to see them play live 3 times. Each time they blew my mind. They give it their all when putting on a show and do it all for their fans that they truly adore.
Now the time has come where I will get to see them perform a live show again (streamig online). But this time it will be bittersweet, as it will be the last time. Singer/songwriter Gordon Downie came forward earlier this year stating he has stage 3 terminal brain cancer and tomorrow night (Aug 20th) the Hip will be saying goodbye to all their fans.
So, to let my followers know… Tomorrow night I will be live blogging during the concert as my farewell to The Tragically Hip and my goodbye to Gordon Downie… A man with tremendous “courage” 💖💖💖
