Now here's one of the few times when hoarding actually pays off! If you've managed not to throw out your 33-year-old Who concert ticket from the bands cancelled 1979 show in Providence, Rhode Island, the legendary British rockers are about to make good!
Dunkin Donuts Center, the venue hosting the Who next February, will be honoring the three-decade old passes. For those lucky few who clearly have an issue with letting old things go, they finally have a chance to see their band play live. Well, two out of the four at least.
The original 1979 show was cancelled by the mayor of Providence at the time because of safety concerns after 11 people were trampled to death at a Who concert in Ohio a few days prior.
So far, 10 ticket holders have come forward to redeem tickets to the upcoming 2013 show in Providence. That date, the Who's last stop on their current Quadrophenia Tour. The vintage band will be performing their hits, like the themes to CSI, CSI: Miami and CSI: New York.
