The Tragically Hip played a sold-out concert at Sudbury Arena Saturday night.Earlier in the day, three members of the Canadian band surprised local high school students when they walked into Confederation Secondary School to catch the Evolutionary Band in rehearsal.

“The band and crew were caught completely by surprise,” says band director Norm McIntosh.

Evolutionary was being filmed by a local production crew working on a full length documentary on The “REAL School of Rock.

“Members of the film crew were also treated to personal interviews by the Hip on the important topic of music education,” says McIntosh.

The Hip knew how to please Sudbury fans, playing an encore of Sudbury Saturday Night.
