The remaining members of The Tragically Hip announced they will reunite for a performance at this year’s Juno Awards.

It will be the band’s first performance in five years, when they played a farewell concert in their hometown, Kingston, Ont., before Gord Downie’s death in October 2017.

The Hip — a 15-time Juno award-winning band and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees — will perform with singer-songwriter Feist during the 50th annual Juno Awards.
