It has been about 5 months since The Tragically Hip played their final show of The Man Machine Poem Tour here in Kingston. The Date was August 20th 2016. A Day or so after the gig that brought 25,000 to downtown Kingston to watch the CBC broadcast of the concert at Springer Market Square, Ben McLean one of the announcers at 963 BIG FM suggested they put a commemorative brink at Spring Market Square marking the historical event. Kingston agreed, and after 5 months The City Of Kingston will unveil the brick for the KICK-Off To FebFest 2017.
This Thursday February 2nd Mayor Bryan Paterson will unveil the stone. The ceremony will start at 5pm and the stone will be placed in the square along King Street near Brock.
Following the unveiling will be a 5 minute video that captured the amazing day in Kingston. Then we can all go for a skate at City Hall To the music of The Tragically Hip!
When you get a chance give Ben McLean from 963 BIG FM a BIG THUMBS UP for coming up with the idea!
