Gord Downie

Photographer: Mike Sansano Location: First Ontario Centre, Hamilton, ON Date: August 16th, 2016 "Like many others in this country, the Hip and it’s music has been the soundtrack of my life. I have been to over 35 shows and shot them from the pit a couple times. This was not the case on this night. I wanted to enjoy every minute of the last time I would ever see the band perform live. It was my 3rd show of the farewell tour and I had watched Gord say goodbye in London & Toronto and wanted to capture that special moment. My ticket for the Hamilton show was literally the top row of First Ontario but I had made my way closer throughout the show and watched the final encore from right next to the stage. As the final sounds of Twist my arm finished the band left and Gord was on the stage by himself. Through tears I snapped my shot and said my goodbyes to the greatest rock and roll icon Canada has ever produced. RIP Gord. We are all richer for having met you." *A portion of all print sales will be donated to the Downie Wenjack Truth & Reconciliation Fund* Print Size: 16x20 Framed: Yes
