See the Tragically Hip and Feist performance at the 2021 Juno Awards
The Tragically Hip was joined by Feist tonight (June 6th) at the Juno Awards 2021. Feist fronted the band for a special performance of “It’s a Good Life If You Don’t Weaken,” introduced by Gordon Lightfoot. The band also received the Humanitarian Award 2021, presented by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson von Rush in honor of their philanthropic work. Watch it all happen below.
During the band’s acceptance speech for their humanitarian award, Paul Langlois highlighted Feist. “We’ve been friends with Leslie for 20 years and honestly we wouldn’t be playing here tonight if she wasn’t here,” he said.
Last month, The Tragically Hip Saskadelphia released a record of six unreleased tracks from 1990, five of which were recorded during the Road Apples sessions in New Orleans that year. The band’s founding singer, Gord Downie, died in 2017 after being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. He was 53 years old.
