The demand to see the Tragically Hip on what will probably be their last tour is not letting up. In fact, fans are asking even more of the group.
There’s a new petition–one of several Hip-related ideas that have generated petitions–can be found on Facebook: “Let’s Get the Hip on the Hill.” The goal is to get the band to play Parliament Hill on Canada Day, which is about three weeks before the Man Machine Poem tour is scheduled to begin in Victoria. The page quickly picked up a thousand signatories and continues to grow.
The Hip on Canada Day? Doesn’t get much more Canadian than that, does it?
