If you were not one of the fortunate ones and you did not get a ticket to one of this summer’s Tragically Hip concerts there is still a chance you can see the iconic Canadian band through a number of outdoor live screenings.
The city of Burnaby is hosting a live screening of one of the most memorable concerts to happen in years: the CBC and the Tragically Hip presents ‘The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration.’
As The Tragically Hip’s tour crosses Canada, live screening opportunities have arisen for those who cannot view the concert first-hand. Burnaby residents will have the opportunity to come together and celebrate the musical magic at Civic Square with an open-air live screening of their own.
“The City of Burnaby is pleased to host a live public screening of the CBC and The Tragically Hip Presents: ‘The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration’,” says Mayor Derek Corrigan. “The Tragically Hip is an iconic Canadian rock band and these live screenings are another way to bring Canadians together.”
The live screening at Civic Square (next to the Bob Prittie Metrotown Library) is free to attend and open to everyone. The event starts at 4:30pm, with the live screening beginning at 5:30pm.
Donations will be accepted to the Canadian Cancer Society. Viewers are encouraged to arrive early and bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Food Services will be on-site with food and a beer garden.
To better serve all attendees, the City of Burnaby is requesting that those interested RSVP on the official Facebook event listing: www.burnaby.ca/outdoorscreening
