11 people who died at The Who Concert Tragedy remembered on 37th anniversary

CINCINNATI (WKRC) – Saturday marked 37 years since The Who Concert Tragedy in Cincinnati.

The British rock band was in town to perform a concert at US Bank Arena — then known as Riverfront Coliseum — on the night of December 3rd in 1979.

11 people were killed before that concert even began when a stampede of people at the doors tried to get inside.

Now a permanent memorial for those who died is outside the arena.

Local 12’s Angela Ingram reports on how those victims were remembered on Saturday night.
