Ten die-hard ‘Wholigans’ held onto their tickets for the December 17, 1979 cancelled show at the Dunkin’ Donuts Centre, Rhode Island.
That’s for well over 30 years!
Their tenacity was rewarded when The Who announced that fans with tickets to the show could trade them in for tickets to the band’s upcoming show February 26, 2013.
The original tickets were priced at $11.50. Current ticket prices range from $72 and $143 at the same venue.
The duo will embark on a 36-date North American concert tour where they will perform their seminal 1973 rock opera album Quadrophenia in its entirety.
