Late Nite Music Club With The Who

Tonight is a more sobering Late Nite Music Club, for it has been 30 years today since tragedy struck a Who concert in Cincinnati that claimed the lives of eleven young fans. The concert was utilitizing “stadium seating”, seating based upon first come/first serve. That coupled with a lack of crowd management lead to 11 of the 18,500 fans attending to be trampled to death once the doors open, and sparked a ban in Cincinnati on stadium seating that would span the next quarter of a century.

To remember this tragic event, The Cincinnati Enquirer has opened up a special blog section where readers can share their memories of that cold winter night. There will also be a candle light vigil in downtown Cincinnati tonight to remember those who died that night.

Here is what those of us in Cincinnati remember from that horrible night in 1979 when the news broke and told us what happened.

Hopefully it will never happen again.
