(hennemusic) The Tragically Hip have expanded their farewell tour with the addition of four concert dates amid controversy over a first-day fan club presale on Monday.

The Kingston, Ontario band announced a third show in Toronto and second gigs in Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary "due to overwhelming demand" from fans following news that frontman Gord Downie has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

The summer tour in support of the band's forthcoming June 17 album, "Man Machine Poem", will begin in Victoria, BC on July 22 and wrap up in the band's hometown of Kingston, ON on August 20.

A fan club presale for the new dates starts May 31 at 10am EDT via Ticketmaster, with general public tickets for all shows available June 3 at 10am EDT.

The CBC reports a May 30 fan club pre-sale is causing controversy after tickets were snapped up via Ticketmaster within moments and then re-appeared minutes later at a massive markup on resale sites like StubHub. Read more here.
