Last night, The Tragically Hip performed “It’s a Good Life If You Don’t Weaken,” along with Feist for a special performance during the 2021 Juno Awards. The Canadian rock band was also being honored that night by receiving the 2021 Humanitarian Award, presented by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson of Rush. The award was given to this band for their consistent philanthropic work, especially in Indigenous communities. The Tragically Hip, often shortened to The Hip, excelled in this, especially with the help of frontman Gord Downie, who passed away in 2017 from brain cancer. The Hip recently released Saskadelphia, a six-song record filled with unreleased tracks from 1990. You can watch the videos below.
During the band’s acceptance speech, guitarist Paul Langlois singled out Feist. “We’ve been friends with Leslie for 20 years, and honestly, we wouldn’t be playing here tonight if she wasn’t here with us,” Langlois said.
