The Ordway Center is saying goodbye to its 306-seat McKnight Theatre, which is being torn down to make way for an 1,100-seat concert hall, in grand style.

The St Paul venue has scheduled a blowout concert, called “The Night of a Million Stars,” for April 28. It will be the last public event there.
