Feist & The Tragically Hip Perform At Juno Awards 2021
Renowned Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip was joined by fellow Canadian musician Feist at last night’s Juno Awards 2021. The collaboration took place at Massey Hall in Toronto and featured a performance of The Hip’s “It’s A Good Life If You Don’t Weaken.”
The Tragically Hip were given the 2021 Humanitarian Award. The massively popular Canadian band dissolved in 2018 after the October 17, 2017 death of frontman Gord Downie at age 53 from brain cancer.
Members of the legendary Canadian rock band Rush — Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson — presented The Tragically Hip with the Humanitarian Award. Surviving members of The Tragically Hip, Rob Baker, Paul Langlois, Johnny Fay and Gord Sinclair accepted the award along with Gord Downie’s brother Patrick Downie.
Langlois, Baker, Sinclair and Fay were also on stage to accompany Feist on “It’s A Good Life If You Don’t Weaken,” which appeared on The Hip’s 2002 album, In Violet Light.
