Published Nov 10, 2017After screening in theatres across the country and airing on television, the Tragically Hip's Long Time Running tour documentary and concert film of their final live performance have been given home release dates.
Long Time Running will arrive on DVD and Blu-ray on November 17 through UMC, with the digital edition arriving through Elevation Pictures. A 10-minute featurette will also be included in the retail version, collecting interviews excluded from the documentary's theatrical cut with Feist, Sarah Harmer and more.
The band's August 20 performance from Kingston will arrive as A National Celebration, receiving its own DVD, Blu-ray and digital release December 8. The concert film contains all 30 songs from the evening's setlist, mixed for Dolby 5.1 sound and "fully complete and true to how it was performed, with no post-production overdubs, drop-ins, or 'corrections' to the artists' in-the-moment expressions."
Additionally, a deluxe box set collects Long Time Running and A National Celebration on both DVD and Blu-ray, along with a 24-page booklet, collectors pin, replica VIP laminate, tour program and posters. The box set is due for release on December 1.
Long Time Running premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this past September, where we called it necessary viewing for people at any level of Hip fandom. The documentary will also come to Netflix outside of Canada on November 12.
