The Tragically Hip are taking one last ride, and are embarking on a Canada-wide tour this summer.
This tour will mark their last tour ever, as lead singer, Gord Downie, has been diagnosed with brain cancer. Fans from far and wide will be grasping for tickets, but if the first round of sales is any indication of what is to be expected, there may not be many tickets up for sale.
During the pre-sale for the shows this summer, tickets sold-out in seconds, only to appear on sites like StubHub, and others, for thousands of dollars more than the original price. Tickets were already being re-sold on StubHub before many fans had realized that the tickets had already been sold-out/
Scalpers, it seems, have found yet another way to get around security features, and buy blocks of tickets at a time. StubHub took to their Twitter account to apologize to those who did not receive tickets, but will not apologize for their methods.
If you missed your chance to purchase tickets, the full sale takes place this Friday, June 3rd, at 10am EST. Make sure you have all your devices ready, and good luck!
