The Who To Honor Tickets From Canceled 1979 Show On New Tour

(hennemusic) This week, The Who announced a major North American arena tour for this fall. The trip, which marks the band's first dates on the continent in four years, will see the group - featuring founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend - perform their iconic 1973 double album "Quadrophenia" in its entirety, along with a selection of Who classics.

The 36-date tour kicks off November 1 in Sunrise, FL and wraps up February 26 in Rhode Island. The Rhode Island date is making headlines because the last time the group was scheduled to perform there in 1979 - Mayor Buddy Cianci cancelled the show due to safety concerns following the December 3, 1979 tragedy when 11 fans were killed in a stampede prior to the bands' Cincinnati show.

630 WPRO reports the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence is offering fans who might still have tickets for the 1979 concert to use them for next February's tour finale. more on this story
