Pre-sale tickets for The Tragically Hip’s final tour sold out quickly in Ontario after they went on sale Monday for members of the band’s fan club.
The rock band announced its farewell tour last week, following the announcement of The Hip’s frontman Gord Downie’s diagnosis of terminal brain cancer.
Members of the band’s fan club were given exclusive access to an undisclosed amount of tickets, with a purchase limit of four tickets per credit card.
