FINNEYTOWN MEMORIAL


A TRAGEDY FOUR DECADES AGO HAS FOREVER LINKED THE BRITISH ROCK BAND THE WHO TO A SMALL SUBURBAN CITY IN SOUTHWEST OHIO. 
IN RECENT YEARS, MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY AND THE BAND HAVE BONDED THROUGH A PROJECT TO MEMORIALIZE THE THREE TEENS FROM FINNEYTOWN WHO WERE AMONG 11 PEOPLE KILLED IN A FRANTIC STAMPEDE OF PEOPLE TRYING TO GET INTO THE WHO'S DEC. 3, 1979, CINCINNATI CONCERT. A MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND LAUNCHED IN 2010 HAS BENEFITED 27 FINNEYTOWN STUDENTS SO FAR, WITH HELP FROM THE WHO, HIGHLIGHTED LAST YEAR BY ROGER DALTREY'S VISIT TO THE MEMORIAL SITE.
