Queen City Monday is a documentary film about the December 3rd, 1979 The Who concert tragedy in Cincinnati, Ohio where 11 fans died.
Lexington, KY – May 7, 2014 – The producer and director, Graeme Hart, is an actual survivor of The Who Concert Tragedy in 1979 and brings a unique perspective to what happened that night in a documentary film called Queen City Monday.
On Monday, December 3rd, 1979, 18,000 people left their homes to attend a concert by the legendary rock band The Who. Eleven of them would never return. They were destined to become a tragic footnote in American music history. Most were students, one was a housewife, one was a sculptor. Their stories, and the stories of those that survived that night in Cincinnati, reflect what is brightest and darkest about America's devotion to rock n roll.
In Graeme Hart's documentary, he combines archival audio and video with current interviews of survivors, first responders, city and arena officials, arena workers and family members of the victims. Queen City Monday takes an in depth look at the events of that evening, as well as the lives that were changed forever.
The documentary will visit the site of the tragedy, Riverfront Coliseum, now U.S. Bank Arena, and give a detailed timeline of the events as they happened that night. The film will also examine the ongoing efforts to erect a permanent monument honoring the 11 fans that died on the plaza that cold December evening 35 years ago.
In the documentary, current and classic stars in rock n roll are interviewed to find out how they reacted to the tragedy, and how they feel it may have changed rock concerts. Every attempt will also be made to interview the surviving members of The Who, Roger Daltry, Pete Townshend and Kenney Jones.
Queen City Monday will premiere in Cincinnati in November of 2014. All proceeds from the premiere will be donated to the Who Concert Memorial Fund, established to build a permanent memorial to the 11 victims of the tragedy. The release also coincides with the 35thanniversary of the concert.
