Windsor, ON – When CBC released their overnight viewing numbers for the Tragically Hip’s final concert one number stood out. It appears only one person in Canada missed seeing the concert. James Kelly of Windsor, Ontario was the only person reported to have not seen the final show of one of Canada’s most beloved acts.
“I totally forgot it was on” said Kelly when confronted with the viewing statistics on Sunday morning “I meant to watch it, I really did but I forgot it was on and I watched a re-run of Criminal Minds instead and fell asleep on the couch”. Despite desperate attempts to reach Mr. Kelly by his friends who had gathered with a capacity crowd at the local pub Kelly did not respond to call or texts. “I was charging my phone and missed the calls” advised Kelly.
“Are they going to show it again?” Kelly asked “Maybe we could all go out and do it again next Saturday? I’d really like to be a part of it. It’s Canadian history after all”. Mr. Kelly’s friends have yet to break the news to him that the rest of the country is busy next Saturday and probably won’t be able to watch a replay of the concert with him.
