The Who fans to redeem 1979 tickets 33 years later
The Who fans disappointed by '79 show cancellation trade in tickets for concert 33 years later
By The Associated Press

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) ¯¯¯ A group of hardcore fans of British rock band The Who will finally redeem tickets for a canceled 1979 Rhode Island show.

The Who's 1979 concert in Providence was canceled by then-Mayor Buddy Cianci (see-AN'-see), who cited safety concerns after a stampede before a show in Cincinnati, Ohio, killed 11 people. The band hasn't been to Providence since.

Now, the band plans to end its Quadrophenia tour in February at the same venue where its show was canceled 33 years ago.



The Dunkin Donuts Center is honoring tickets for that canceled show. A handful of fans have come forward to trade in their old tickets. They'll make the trade Tuesday afternoon at the box office.

Any 1979 tickets redeemed will be donated to help raise money for the Special Olympics.
