The Tragically Hip invited Justin Trudeau to Kingston concert: PMO
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was invited by The Tragically Hip to attend the final stop of the iconic Canadian band’s Man Machine Poem tour.
The band’s management offered Trudeau four tickets, the Prime Minister’s Office confirmed to Global News Tuesday. The other three tickets went to local MP Mark Gerretsen, Trudeau’s principal secretary Gerry Butts and chief of staff Katie Telford.
Two other Trudeau support staff were at the arena but did not have formal tickets.
Each seat cost $133.75 and Trudeau and co. paid for them out of pocket — no taxpayer money was in the mix.
Canadians from coast-to-coast (and beyond) tuned in Saturday night to watch The Hip’s performance from their hometown of Kingston, Ont.
