The cross-Canada Man Machine Poem tour’s 15 stops sold out immediately after becoming available, leaving many fans in limbo, but CBC came to the rescue. Demand for tickets surged when it was revealed band frontman Gord Downie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, back in May.
The CBC announced to iPhone in Canada there are 190 community viewing events confirmed nationwide.
