Concert moves to outside of Capitol theatre
The Todd Rundgren concert tonight at the newly reopening Capitol Theatre is moving outside onto Cleveland Street downtown because a city inspection found mold in the building Thursday. "We decided to err on the side of caution and have it outside," said city spokeswoman Joelle Castelli. The 8 p.m. concert will be in front of the theater at 403 Cleveland St. Seats will be set up in the same configuration as inside the 450-seat theater. The tickets sold for individual seats will still be honored, according to Ruth Eckerd Hall, which operates the theater. Tickets cost $49.75.
