(hennemusic) Iconic Canadian rockers The Tragically Hip have announce dates for a farewell tour following news that frontman Gord Downie has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

The group revealed news of Downie's health issue on Tuesday, saying, "After 30-some years together as The Tragically Hip, thousands of shows, and hundreds of tours…we've decided to do another one. This feels like the right thing to do now, for Gord, and for all of us."

The month-long 11-date run across Canada in support of forthcoming June 17 album, "Man Machine Poem", will kick off in Victoria, BC on July 22 and wrap up in the band's hometown of Kingston, ON on August 20.

Tickets for the Man Machine Poem Tour will be available on Friday, June 3 at 10am local time. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Sunnybrook Foundation. Read more and see the dates here.
