Gord Downie to play Toronto show this fall

Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip embarked on the whirlwind Man, Machine, Poem tour this past summer, bringing the country together through music and raising more than $1 million for brain cancer research.

Downie also announced he'd release a graphic novel, an animated film and a solo album called The Secret Path, about an Indigenous 12-year-old boy named Chanie Wenjack who died fifty years ago while trying to run away from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School near Kenora, Ontario.

On Friday, October 21 - timed with the release of The Secret Path - Downie will perform live at Roy Thomson Hall. He'll also play a show at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa on October 18.

Tickets to the Toronto show go on sale on Friday, September 23. They'll go for $50. The pre-sale begins on Thursday.
