The Tragically Hip add another Toronto concert date

The Tragically Hip added four more dates to their Man Machine Poem summer tour, including an additional stop at Toronto's ACC on August 14.

Tickets for the first round of concerts sold out in minutes this morning, with many ending up on re-seller sites such as StubHub for up to $800.

If you weren't successful snagging tickets today, you can try again on Friday, June 3 at 10 a.m.

Last week, frontman Gord Downie went public with the fact that he'd been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Soon after, The Hip announced their summer tour. As Exclaim writes, a portion of all ticket proceeds will go towards the Sunnybrook Foundation.
