The Country is expected to pause this evening as the Rock/Doc that premiered at the Toronto International Film Fest; and did a run in theaters, debuts tonight at 8 pm on TV.
“Long Time Running” documents the Tragically Hips legendary final tour of Canada.
Beyond the scenes footage and the bands best performances will garner a huge Canadian audience this evening.
Turn it up, sit back and enjoy the talented laureate/jester who became the conscience of nearly an entire Country.
He was the soundtrack to our lives.
The last time the Hip hit TV, 11.7 million Canadians tuned in, and there were many more than that considering all the parties and multiple gatherings that played the concert in Kingston on August 18th of 2016.
Even at that, the final show of the Tragically Hip’s Man Machine Poem tour was the 2nd highest rated live TV show in Canadian TV History, 2nd only to the Olympic Gold Metal Game in Vancouver where we saw Team Canada win a Gold against the USA in 2010 .
RIP Gordie Baby!
