The Hip on the hill in Kimberley

Catch the Tragically Hip's concert at the Kimberley Alpine Resort plaza

The Tragically Hip

Iconic Canadian band the Tragically Hip are winding up their Man, Machine, Poem tour this Saturday, August 20 at home in Kingston, Ontario.

While not billed as the last tour, Hip frontman Gord Downie’s recent diagnosis of an aggressive brain cancer, suggests that it may be.

CBC is live streaming the concert online and on the network, and viewing parties are planned across the country, including Kimberley.

Kimberley’s viewing party, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, at the Kimberley Alpine Resort, promises to be a great event.

RCR, the Kimberley Chamber and Ray’s Music have teamed up to bring you the concert, with  both indoors and outside viewing, along with a lot of other events, in a day long party.

Saturday is also the day of the Black Spur Ultra Marathon, with its start and finish at KAR, so you will have an opportunity to see some of the extreme marathoners arrive.

It all gets underway at 11 a.m. in the ski hill plaza with beer gardens and a barbecue. The concert starts at 6:30 p.m. Bring your own lawnchairs and enjoy. Also during the day you can take a helicopter tour with Eclipse Helicopters.
