Forecast forces Wednesday's Downtown Alive concert indoors

A Flock of Seagulls to perform at Santander PAC

READING, Pa. - The threat of wet weather has forced organizers of the Downtown Alive concert series to make some changes ahead of Wednesday's show.

The Reading Downtown Improvement District announced Tuesday that the free concert, featuring A Flock of Seagulls, will take place at the Santander Performing Arts Center in the 100 block of North Sixth Street.

That's a change from the concerts' usual venue, that being an outdoor stage in the 500 block of Penn Street.

Doors for the concert will open at 5 p.m. Parking will be free at the Poplar and Walnut streets garage, near the theater, between 4 p.m. and 1 a.m.

Those parking there are advised to take a ticket when entering the garage, but the exit gates will be up by the time the concert is over, officials said.

Concertgoers are advised not to park at the Fourth and Cherry streets garage, which normally offers free parking when the concerts are on Penn Street.

Wednesday's concert is the second in the series. Local H will headline the next show on July 17. That will be followed by The Revolution on August 14 and Southern Culture on the Skids on September 18.
