Thanks for the download.
I've been a fan of The Tragically Hip forever. Their music has been a big part of the soundtrack of my life. My first date with my husband was a Hip show at UBC in Vancouver and we made sure there were Hip songs on the DJ's playlist at our wedding reception. Over our 25 years together, we have seen many Hip shows, and loved them all.
I was gutted when I learned of Gord Downie's awful cancer diagnosis. I love the guy. I love watching him perform. His stage antics are so wildly entertaining and exhilarating and crazy. Yet he's also this great poet - his lyrics are amazing.
My husband and I went to the show in Ottawa (where we live) and watched the final show in Kingston on TV at home. ("Grace,Too" was so raw and emotional.) The Tragically Hip gave their fans a tremendous gift with their final tour. I'm extremely grateful for that, but I'm sad for Gord and sad that I'll never see The Tragically Hip perform again (barring some miracle).
