Star-Spangled concert to honor America’s heroes

WASHINGTON — The red, white and blue stage is set for Sunday night’s National Memorial Day Concert on the west front of the Capitol. The public is welcome to visit the Capitol grounds for the 90-minute show, which is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.

Picnics are welcome, but no alcohol is allowed. Patrons are encouraged to bring their own water. No glass bottles are permitted on the grounds.

U.S. Capitol Police say security measures will include searches of bags, backpacks and coolers.  Also banned from the concert site are pets, bicycles and oversized umbrellas.
