Fans Cash in on The Who’s Offer to Honor Tickets From 1979
Recently, we reported that on February 26, 2013, The Who would perform in Rhode Island—the first show since their canceled 1979 gig in the state. In honor of the occasion, the band announced that they would honor tickets purchased for the canceled show.
We thought that it seemed unlikely anyone would take the band up on the offer. Surely those who didn’t seek a refund would have lost track of their tickets, or be hanging on to them as the ultimate souvenir. Right?
We were wrong.
Turns out that ten fans were eager to trade in their fourteen tickets to see vocalist Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend play the classic 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia in its entirety. Among them are Emery Lucier—who at 17 was so angry about the cancellation that he kicked over a chair, Sandy Ball, whose military enlisted older brother kept the tickets safe through 16 moves, and Barry Belotti—who has seen the band more than 100 times.
On behalf of everyone at Rock Square, enjoy the show!
