If you’re a fan of the Hip and have seen them live, you know that Gord Downie is known for his white hanky. And Gord knows that he’s known for it, too. That’s why a woman named Melissa Violette had the brilliant idea of fans bringing white hankies with them to the Hamilton concert on Tuesday August 16. The idea is to create a sea of white for Gord to show him some love from Hamilton.
This came to us from Kelly Pascon who saw Melissa Violette’s comment on a post about the Hamilton Tragically Hip concert on the Core Entertainment Facebook page. Like Kelly, I think this is a great idea. If you’re attending the Hip concert on Tuesday, why not bring a white hanky to show Gord and the boys some love?
UPDATE: If you don’t have a white piece of cloth, there are people working hard to make up the deficit.
