    Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the incident where 11 people were killed before a Who concert at the Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati- there were no reserved seats at this concert, and people panicked when they heard a sound check, and stormed the entrance doors. The Who are scheduled to play at BB&T arena across the river next Spring.

    I recall that incident vividly. Wonder how or if Roger/Pete will address it?

    The article I saw about their return is Pete will discuss it when the band comes to town. The article also said the band wasn’t aware of the deaths until they were deep into that show
    (the promoter didn’t want to postpone or cancel that show out of fear of the crowd’s reaction).

    I remember the WKRP in Cincinnati episode about it as vividly as the incident itself.
