The remaining members of The Tragically Hip announced they will reunite for a performance at this year’s Juno Awards.

It will be the band’s first performance in five years, when they played a farewell concert in their hometown, Kingston, Ont., before Gord Downie’s death in October 2017.

The Hip — a 15-time Juno award-winning band and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees — will perform with singer-songwriter Feist during the 50th annual Juno Awards.

The band had Leslie Feist open for much of their 1999 tour.

In a statement sent out Thursday, the band said:  “We are all huge fans and Gord loved Feist…it’s an honour to be able to play one of our songs with her.”
