Canadian rock icons The Tragically Hip have been strongly representing their beloved country for the past 28 years, and show no signs of slowing down. The Kingston, ON-based quintet will be hitting the road for an 11-date trek that sees them primarily in Canada for its duration. The tour’s initial stop is Watertown, NY on June 24th, the first of only two U.S. dates (the other is in Buffalo on July 30th). One week later, Gordon Downie and company will be tearing up the stage with an epic festival performance for Canada Day on July, alongside Weezer and fellow Canuck rockers Hey Rosetta!, Buck 65, and Broken Social Scene. The Hip have also scheduled appearances at Ottawa Bluesfest, and a number of other stops before winding down with a set at Osheaga Festival in Montreal on July 31st.
