    Edited to include link to the full show.




    Not sure how many people south of the border are aware of The Tragically Hip but tonight is their final concert in their current tour and possibly the last show ever. Lead singer Gord Downie has incurable brain cancer and is going out with an amazing tour of Canada. Tonight they play in Kingston, Ontario , their hometown. Any fans should watch the show. I've been a huge fan for a long time. Gonna be a mess watching this.

    Boomer tag your threads next time if you don't mind. Usually they get moved otherwise.

    Peace and love.

    Maybe brain cancer will become tragically hip after his death.

    On my way home now. We've decided to watch it in our living room rather than one of the public venues. I'm psyched but very sad about it too.

    Americans, this would be like if Springsteen was dying and playing his last concert ever, and doing it in Asbury Park.
