The Tragically Hip and Canada’s birthday have long been synonymous, and this week the tradition returns. This Tuesday, June 30th at 7 pm ET Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair, Paul Langlois and Johnny Fay join together for an exclusive SiriusXM Town Hall.
Hosted by SiriusXM’s Jeff Leake, the special will showcase Baker, Fay, Langlois and Sinclair live from their respective homes reminiscing about the band’s long history with frontman Gord Downie, past Canada Day shows, and what each is currently working on, including Baker’s new weekly show “Front of the Bus” on The Tragically Hip Radio.
The Tragically Hip Town Hall will be available live on SiriusXM Canada’s Facebook page and The Tragically Hip’s Facebook page at 7 pm ET on June 30, and will be later broadcast and available on demand on The Tragically Hip Radio, available to subscribers with SiriusXM Streaming. The Tragically Hip Radio will also be taking over SiriusXM’s ch. 173 from July 1 through July 5, providing everyone access to the channel via satellite.
The Tragically Hip Radio showcases curated music from across the band’s vast catalogue, including live recordings from the band’s personal vault; archived interviews and track-by-track sit-downs. Throughout the takeover, the dedicated channel will feature never-been-aired live recordings from New York’s legendary CBGB, Gino’s in Stockholm and Parkpop in The Hague, Holland.
