The Who to Honor Tickets for Canceled 1979 Concert

Time has reported fans still holding tickets for a canceled 1979 show in Rhode Island by British rock band The Who can finally use them.

The Who’s 1979 concert in Providence was canceled by then-Mayor Buddy Cianci, who cited safety concerns after a stampede before a show in Cincinnati, Ohio, killed 11 people. The band hasn’t been to Providence the 33 years since.

The highest price ticket at the 1979 show was $14, Lepore said. Tickets for February’s show range from $57.50 to $127.50.

Who General Manager Lawrence Lepore said 1979 ticketholders can call his office to make the exchange. Any 1979 tickets redeemed will be donated to help raise money for the Special Olympics of Rhode Island.
