The Tragically Hip says lead singer Gord Downie has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.
Dr. James Perry of Sunnbrooke says its aggressive type.
The band management says there will be a tour this summer.
The announcement will come officially Wednesday morning but they know it will be in Canada only with selected stops.
Downie has gone through 6 rounds of radiation and chemo and his doctor says he’s doing well but the cancer and symptoms will return at some point.
