Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre will reopen this weekend with a concert that's free for firefighters, policemen and other first responders and public servants. Most of the work has been completed on a $6 million renovation overseen by AEG Live, which now operates the venue. Changes include new buildings, widened pathways and dramatically improved sound.
