A bomb threat at Glendale's historic Alex Theatre forced the evacuation of a concert on Saturday afternoon.

The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles had just started performing when everyone was ordered to leave the building.


Glendale Police Department officers conducted a sweep of the theater using a canine unit and nothing was found.

Jonathan Weedman, executive director of the chorus, called the threat "hugely upsetting."

A second performance slated for Saturday night took place as scheduled.
