Music/Events: The Who 30th Anniversary Vigil Walk

By Steve Rosen · December 3rd, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

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.

at U.S. Bank Arena’s plaza level, where 11 lanterns will be lit to commemorate those who died on Dec. 3, 1979, and ends two blocks away at Christ Church at 318 E. Fourth St., where a memorial service will be held.
