WE'LL MISS YOU GORDIE...!
30 July 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

A great doc on the last tour by the Canadian band The Tragically Hip. Gord Downie's diagnosis of a terminal brain tumor prompted the band to mount a farewell tour to celebrate his life, the band's life & their standing as the preeminent Canadian band of the last three decades. I've had exposure to the band since 1991 & have many of their releases but they've always been an oddity on our shores even though other Canadian artists have managed to crack the American consciousnesses like Rush & Sarah McLachlan, the Hip never quite got there here. The sheer love on display is inspiring since it's without any shame or artifice the Canadian populace embraces the Hip as a member of the family so being invited to this odyssey is an honor & a privilege.
