Tragically Hip

For those of you not in Canada, many of us Canadians have this group that we grew up with, called the Tragically Hip. They wrote a lot of thought provoking songs and heralded the alternative music scene here in Canada.

This year, they announced a tour along with the upsetting news that their lead singer was diagnosed with terminal cancer and that this would be his last tour. Proceeds from the tickets were to go to cancer research.

As soon as the tickets were released, bots swarmed and snatched up most of the tickets. Meaning that most Canadians wouldn’t be able to see the concert unless they went to a scalper and paid exorbitant fees.

That’s when the Canadian Broadcast Channel (CBC) saved the day and announced that they would broadcast the concert so that all Canadians everywhere would be able to say good bye.

And so, we are.
