The Who are playing a show at Providence, Rhode Island next February as part of their recently announced US tour and it's their first time back there since cancelling a date in 1979 following a stampede at a show in Cincinnati where eleven people died.
The band will allow anyone who still has a ticket from the original cancelled date to use it for this one. Fans were offered refunds in 1979, but a few might well have held onto their tickets and if you are one of those with such a ticket, then you have to call the venue – Dunkin Donuts Center – in advance, and arrange to swap it for a new one.

The Who play a 36-date tour of North America from November until February. They will play the classic 'Quadrophenia' in its entirety on the tour but before they head to the States they take to the stage at the Olympics closing ceremony in London next month.
Roger Daltrey could not be more excited about their upcoming gig and said: "We have recorded a piece of music that is a fabulous ending for the Olympics... and just shows the great music that has come out of this country.
Joining the group's two surviving members, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, will be Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar), Chris Stainton and Loren Gold (both keyboards).
