SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The popular downtown Thursday concerts at Salt Lake City's Gallivan Center will likely have to find a temporary home while their normal venue undergoes a $6 million renovation.

The Gallivan Center is being redesigned in part to accommodate the large crowds at the weekly summertime Twilight Concert Series. Renovations start next spring.

Salt Lake City Arts Council Program Director Casey Jarman is now looking for a possible replacement site.

And Jarman won't commit to going back to Gallivan when it reopens for 2011, saying if another locale is working out great, he might do that instead.

City Redevelopment Agency Executive Director D.J. Baxter says he hopes the concerts will continue but says the plaza makeover was planned for large events, private parties and weddings, not just free concerts.
