The Who have extended their Moving On tour to include a show in Cincinnati, Ohio, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of a tragedy in the city where 11 of the band's fans died in a pre-show stampede.

Along with a series of rescheduled shows announced earlier this month, the band has expanded their 2020 itinerary to include shows on April 21 in Hollywood and on April 23 in Cincinnati as well as a series of six shows in Las Vegas from May 5-16.

It will be the first time the band will be performing in Cincinnati since the tragedy.

The historic show was announced Tuesday by local Cincinnati TV station WCPO after airing a documentary special - "The Who: The Night That Changed Rock" - commemorating the 40th anniversary of the tragedy.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band's lead singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend were interviewed for the program along with long-time manager Bill Curbishley.

The Who will make a donation from the Cincinnati concert to the P.E.M. Memorial, the organization that was founded to honor friends and classmates that lost their lives at the December 3, 1979 concert.

Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster.
