In some ways, The Who
concert tragedy of Dec. 3, 1979 – in which 11 died and many were
injured during a crush of fans trying to get into Riverfront Coliseum
(now U.S. Bank Arena) for a “festival seating” show — seems like
ancient history. But in other ways it’s just like yesterday. The 30th
anniversary is Thursday.
A 30th Anniversary Vigil Walk starts Thursday starts at 6:30 p.m.
