CBC to Reair The Tragically Hip’s Last Concert Next Month

National Broadcaster to air final show on June 24

The CBC originally said that their broadcast of The Tragically Hip’s final show from last summer’s Man Machine Poem was a one-time event, but Canada’s National Broadcaster has changed its mind.

The CBC announced earlier this week that they will re-air The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration on June 24, calling the decision “the perfect way to kick off the summer.”

The show ran nearly three hours, and featured the pride of Kingston performing their biggest hits to a sold-out hometown crowd. The original airing had nearly 12 million viewers tune in across Canada over the course of the broadcast.
