Tragically Hip lead singer Gord Downie says goodbye in his hometown

Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip played its last tour stop at the hometown of lead singer Gord Downie.

The band announced in May that Downie has terminal brain cancer and planned its summer tour as a "way of dealing with the news."

    "This feels like the right thing to do now, for Gord, and for all of us," the band said in a statement before the performance Saturday night.

    For 30 years, Tragically Hip has been one of Canada's most successful acts, racking up 14 Juno awards and nine No. 1s. And Downie, 52, is one of its most charismatic singers.

    The almost three-hour show in Kingston, Ontario, featured music from throughout the Tragically Hip music catalog -- including fan favorites like Nautical Disaster, Bobcaygeon and Ahead by a Century, CNN partner CBC News reported.
