The Capitol Theatre To Celebrate Eighth Anniversary With Livestream Marathon

first_imgThe Capitol Theatre has announced a marathon livestream event in celebration of its eighth anniversary since reopening under Peter Shapiro. The day-long event will take place on September 12th, beginning at 1 pm ET.Originally opened on August 18th, 1926, The Capitol Theatre was a mecca for rock n’ roll in the 1970s, hosting everyone from The Rolling Stones to the Grateful Dead. In 1984 the venue changed ownership, was renovated, and the programming shifted to hosting plays and musicals, eventually seeing a brief resurgence of rock concerts in the early 1990s before once again abandoning the premise. That was until jam impresario Peter Shapiro bought The Cap in 2011, renovated it, and reopened once again on September 4th, 2012 with a concert by Bob Dylan.Related: Report: Brooklyn Bowl To Partner With Live Nation To Open Philadelphia Location In 2021Over the course of the day, fans will be treated to legendary archival sets, special live performances, greetings from venue staff, and words from the community. The free livestream will serve as a fundraiser for the National Independent Venues Association (NIVA), a non-profit organization comprised of thousands of venues in all 50 states who have banded together in support of the Save Our Stages Act.“It’s been eight amazing years,” Shapiro said. “Not quite sure if it has gone by really fast or really slow, but I am psyched to relive it again,”The Capitol Theatre eighth anniversary livestream will also see the venue partner with Conscious Alliance, whose style of fundraising at concerts and festivals has been severely stunted by the pandemic. Conscious Alliance will return with a virtual edition of its “Art That Feeds” food drive, offering a commemorative poster to fans that donate to Conscious Alliance during the stream.“We’re pleased and honored to offer this livestream to help celebrate The Cap’s 8th anniversary,” general manager Bruce Wheeler said. “Our patrons have always been so supportive, it feels good to be able to give back to them this way. It’s amazing how many great acts have graced the stage at The Cap, and we’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of them! Our preference would have been to celebrate together, in person, and we can’t wait for the day until we can all come together again.”A full lineup of performers will be available soon, according to a press release. Tune into the The Capitol Theatre eighth anniversary livestream on September 12th at 1 pm ET, streaming on FANS, Facebook, YouTube, and more.last_img read more

Fury, Joshua agree to two-fight deal

first_imgLONDON (AP):An all-British world heavyweight title showdown between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury in 2021 is a step closer.Fury said yesterday that an agreement has been reached with Joshua’s camp on a two-fight deal between the current holders of the heavyweight belts.“The biggest fight in British boxing history has just been agreed,” Fury said in a video message posted on Twitter. “Two-fight deal.”Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, earlier yesterday told British broadcaster Sky Sports that the camps had agreed to two fights.“We’re in a good place,” Hearn said. “It’s fair to say that, in principle, both guys have agreed to that fight. Two fights.”Specific dates and venues have not been finalised and contracts have not been signed, but Hearn said the sides have agreed on the financial terms.“The first fight could happen next summer,” Hearn said, although he acknowledged that “there is still a lot to overcome.”First, Fury plans to fight Deontay Wilder for a third time. Fury’s promoter, Bob Arum, told The Associated Press on Monday that Fury “owes” Wilder a third fight after claiming the WBC belt off the American with a seventh-round stoppage in February.On Wednesday, Fury described a third Wilder fight as a “hurdle.”“I’ve just got to smash Deontay Wilder’s face right in, in the next fight, and then we go into the Joshua fight next year,” Fury said. Arum, the CEO of Top Rank, said they’re shooting for November or December. Only then would Fury turn his attention to Joshua, who is the WBA, IBF and WBO titleholder, Arum said.Fury also has a mandatory title defence against Dillian Whyte. Joshua is also set to fight this year, against mandatory IBF challenger Kubrat Pulev.last_img read more
