On This Date, August 8th in 1996: Kiss was performing at the Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati on their reunion tour when a fan threw a prosthetic leg onstage. The band signed the limb and handed it back to the fan. Rock & Roll!
On This Date, December 3rd, in 1979: At a concert by The Who held at Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati, eleven people were trampled to death after a stampede to claim general admission seats. It was the saddest day in rock, ever. The tragedy was later memorialized in a very sobering episode of the TV show WKRP in Cincinnati.
