Saturday, August 20th, was a bittersweet day for fans of The Tragically Hip. The band performed for the last time in their hometown Kingston, Ontario, on their Man Machine Poem tour.
There was a very special guest in attendance at the show and that was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Well said, Justin, well said. The Prime Minister took his national pride to the next level by rocking an almost entirely denim outfit aka the Canadian tuxedo!
To say Canadians loved his look seems like a massive understatement!
Wearing denim, a Hip band tee AND eating poutine? I think Trudeau just proved he’s 100% Canadian to the core!
On behalf of Canadians, I thank Gord Downie and the Hip for their decades of service to Canadian music. Forever in our hearts and playlists.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) August 21, 2016
