Yes, I am still here…It’s just difficult to find motivation to blog when no one ever comments on my posts! I understand no one loves me. Anyways, I’ve put aside those feelings to come and tell everyone that the Capitol Theatre (yes we’re all British here) in Wheeling, WV is open again!
The Capitol first opened in 1928 and had the second-longest running radio station, following behind the Grand Ole Opry. Jamboree USA and Wheeling’s symphony was held in the theatre making it a cultural staple to Wheeling. Huge country artists, big name comedians and famous magicians and other performers have all graced the stage. Now…all you country fans don’t start
The only thing I would have liked improved about tonight would be if there were a bar or restaurant near the Theatre. A drink and bite to eat would be perfect after and/or before a show. This is a long process that involves a complete revival and renovation of the downtown infrastructure….I’ll get working on it.
So, hopefully there will be some more great performances in this amazing venue and who knows maybe DJ B-Net will perform there someday.
