    The 2012 Labor Day Capitol Concert has been moved to the Kennedy Center from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol due to concerns over inclement weather in the area.

    U.S. Capitol Police announced the venue change shortly before noon Sunday.

    The popular annual event will take place in the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater at 8 p.m. Sunday, with the doors set to open at 7:30 p.m. The planned Open Rehearsal at 3:30 p.m. is no longer open to the public.

    The forecast for Sunday afternoon called for showers and thunderstorms lasting into Monday's holiday.

    The concert by the National Symphony Orchestra has been held annually since 1979.
