The Tragically Hip

Profile:

Canadian rock band from Kingston, Ontario, often referred to simply as The Hip, consisting of lead front man Gord Downie, guitarist Paul Langlois, guitarist Rob Baker (known as Bobby Baker until 1994), bassist Gord Sinclair, and drummer Johnny Fay.

Lead singer Gord Downie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2015, and the band undertook a tour of Canada in support of their thirteenth album Man Machine Poem. The tour's final concert, which would ultimately be the band's last show, was held at the Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston on August 20, 2016, and broadcast globally by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a cross-platform television, radio and internet streaming special. Downie died on October 17, 2017.

In July 2018 the band announced they were no longer active as a performing or recording entity.
