Todd Rundgren's Capitol Theatre concert moves outdoors


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.
