Perhaps the most tragic concert in the history of rock and roll.

The third night of The Who's Winter '79 tour is infamously known for the deaths of eleven fans outside the doors of the Riverfront Coliseum before the show. Wikipedia does a solid job of explaining the circumstances around what happened. They can be found here and we've included the text from that page in the torrent as well:

The Who themselves went on and played their set, blindly unaware of what had happened until after the show ended. As with the show the night before in Pittsburgh, there were several firecrackers going off in the crowd which was again addressed by Pete. Despite not knowing what had occurred before the show, Pete and Roger tried (unsuccessfully) several times to get the crowd on the main floor to stop pressing forward. It was an extremely volatile situation inside as it was out, which may explain why the show actually wasn't canceled on the spot for fear of what the crowd might do.

Despite the terrible circumstances, there's no getting around that the Who's performance this fateful night was great, building on and surpassing the previous two nights shows. In "My Generation," Pete played his bolero for the first time on this part of the tour. Earlier, when introducing the new/additional musicians on stage, PT referenced other horn-section rock bands Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears, then dubbing The Who "Blood, Sweat and Shit." Samples provided.

When the band left stage after the main set, they were told by their management to play a shorter encore; the first sign something was amiss. After the encore they were told what had happened before the show. These terrible circumstances, obviously, cast a shadow over the rest of the tour. We drove to Buffalo the next day, not entirely sure whether there would be a show or not. There was, and the band addressed what happened in Cincinnati from the stage. But that's the next installment of our Who '79 Revisited campaign. For now, you can listen to the bizarrely unaffected performance in Cincinnati by a band that had no idea what had happened to their fans before the lights went down.
