Last summer, The Tragically Hip made history with an emotional Canadian tour, and now a documentary about the concerts and the lead-up to the shows is set to be released.
Titled Long Time Running, the documentary zooms in on the band’s emotional journey across the country and gets up close and personal with lead singer Gord Downie and the rest of the band. Released just in time for Canada Day, the first-ever trailer for Long Time Running somehow manages to capture the feeling of that iconic tour, once again, in a brief one-minute time span.
Aside from intimate interviews with the Hip, the documentary boasts testimonies from the band members’ close friends, behind-the-scenes and backstage footage and reactions from their die-hard fans throughout Canada.
The documentary will be released in select theatres in September 2017.
