The countdown is on. Tragically Hip fans across Canada are prepping for the Man Machine Poem tour finale in the band's hometown of Kingston, Ont., on Saturday.

With Kingston's Rogers K-Rock Centre able to hold fewer than 6,000 people, most Hip fans plan to tune into the concert via CBC, which is broadcasting and streaming the show live and commercial free: online, and on television and radio.
As of 5 p.m. ET on Friday, 436 community viewing parties were scheduled. Parties were planned from Yukon's Marsh Lake Community Centre, to Victoria Park in Charlottetown — as well as internationally, with approved as well as fan-organized screenings in New York, London, Los Angeles and Mexico, and in Rio de Janeiro as the Brazilian city prepares to wrap up the Summer Olympics.
The Tragically Hip concert begins at 8:30 p.m. ET Saturday and will be broadcast nationally and streamed around the globe, in its entirety.
There will be no on-demand, nor online streaming playback, of the full event following the live show.
