Here’s how you can watch CBC’s broadcast of final show of The Tragically Hip’s Man Machine Poem tour from Kingston, Ontario, on Saturday, August 20, 2016.

In May, The Hip announced that the Man Machine Poem tour would be their last as lead singer Gord Downie had been diagnosed with incurable brain cancer. Man Machine Poem, the band’s new album was released on June 17.

CBC’s broadcast, The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration, will begin promptly at 8:30 p.m. ET on CBC Television in Canada. Fans can watch globally on as well as the CBC Music apps (click for your version: iOS or Android). You’ll also be able to listen in on CBC Radio One and CBC Radio 2 across Canada as well as on SirusXM Radio in North America.

“The Tragically Hip’s enigmatic sound, their poignant and witty lyrics, and the unique, special relationship they have with their fans have helped define and influence our identity as Canadians,” said Heather Conway, executive vice-president of English Services at the CBC. “It’s hard to overstate the importance of this tour. CBC and The Hip are so happy to be able to share this event with all Canadians and bring audiences across the country and around the world together to celebrate the moment.”

The final stop on the sold-out tour will see Gord Downie, Paul Langlois, Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair and Johnny Fay perform at the Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston – where the band was formed in the mid-80s.
