CINCINNATI — The Who has pushed back their much-anticipated return to Cincinnati, the band announced on their website late Friday.
The concert was set to take place at BB&T Arena at Northern Kentucky University on Thursday, April 23. A new date for the concert has not been set.
The band’s triumvirate – songwriter/guitarist Pete Townshend, lead singer Roger Daltrey and manager Bill Curbishley - committed to returning to Cincinnati during exclusive interviews with WCPO Anchor Tanya O’Rourke in October.
“It would be such a joyous occasion for us and such a healing thing, I think,” an enthusiastic Townshend told O’Rourke then.
It's been 40 years since The Who last performed for Cincinnati -- a night that resulted in the deaths of 11 young people outside the arena.
WCPO will continue to update this story.
