The Who fans who still possess a ticket for their cancelled 1979 gig in Providence, Rhode Island can still use the brief for the band's show in the city in 2013.

The legendary group were due to perform in the city on December 1979, but authorities prevented the gig from going ahead as 11 fans had been trampled to death at a previous show in Ohio.

Now, The Who have announced that fans who still have the rare ticket will be able to swap it for a new brief, which will entitle the holder entry into band's gig at the Dunkin' Donuts Centre on February 26, 2013.

Lawrence Lepole, manager of the venue, told Rhode Island's WPRO-AM radio station: "If someone does have tickets from '79, we will honour them. If you've got a '79 ticket we will find a way for you to come and see the show."

He added:

Somewhere, someplace, someone's got it stashed. The question is, are they willing to give that up? If they're willing, we're willing to take it.

The Who will visit Providence, Rhode Island on their mammoth 2013 32-date tour of the US. The band will be playing their seminal album 'Quadrophenia' in its entirety, as well as other fan favourites.
