Who fans can use 1979 gig ticket

American music fans still holding tickets for a cancelled 1979 show in Rhode Island by British rock band The Who can finally use them.

The Who's 1979 concert in Providence was cancelled by then mayor Buddy Cianci, who cited safety concerns after a stampede before a show in Cincinnati, Ohio, killed 11 people. The band has not returned to the city since.

The Who will end their latest tour in Providence on February 26 at the same venue where its show was cancelled 33 years ago, now called the Dunkin Donuts Centre.

General manager Lawrence Lepore said the venue will honour tickets from the cancelled 1979 show.

Mr Lepore said many ticket holders got refunds for the show in 1979, but others may have held on to their tickets as memorabilia.

"Somewhere, someplace, someone's got it stashed," he said. "The question is, are they willing to give that up? If they are, we're willing to take it."

He first made the offer on WPRO-AM, which then asked listeners to call if they still had a 1979 ticket. No one did.

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

Mr Lepore said any 1979 tickets redeemed will be used to help raise money for the Special Olympics of Rhode Island.
