SOUTH PORTLAND – Folk icon Richard Thompson was bitten by a scorpion while on vacation in Mexico recently and, thus, was forced to reschedule his Friday, April 11, concert at South Portland Auditorium.

A new concert date will be announced as soon as possible. The April 11 show was close to a sell-out.

All tickets purchased will be honored for the new date. All refunds will be honored at the point of purchase.

Check out the Heptunes Web site,, or Thompson’s site for the rescheduled date.

The South Portland Auditorium is on the campus of South Portland High School located at 637 Highland Ave.
