Fans unable to secure tickets to The Tragically Hip earlier this month might have better luck on Tuesday.

Additional tickets will be released at 10 a.m. local time for the band’s upcoming Man Machine Poem tour.

Demand for tickets has been overwhelming since news broke of lead singer Gord Downie’s terminal brain cancer.

Tickets sold out within seconds on June 3 after resellers used electronic bots to buy up much of Ticketmaster’s inventory. Tickets on the website StubHub appeared minutes later at inflated prices, causing many fans to cry foul.

A purchase limit of two tickets per person will be in place on Tuesday.

The Tragically Hip plays Winnipeg’s MTS Centre on August 5.
