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.

    The comedian Dick Gregory rose to national prominence in the early 1960s as a black satirist whose audacious style of humor was biting, subversive and topical, mostly centered on current events, politics and above all, racial tensions. His trademark was the searing punchline.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
