MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) _ The town has fined the Tweeter Center for the first time for shows going past the amphitheater's curfew.

The town fined the center about $5,300 because shows by Bob Dylan and Paul Simon ran up to 15 minutes beyond the 11 p.m. curfew. The July 22 and 23 concerts featured back-to-back performances by Simon and Dylan.

Under a 1998 agreement, the town can levy fines against the center if performances go past curfew.

Bruce Montgomery, the center's general manager, sent a letter of apology to Mansfield town selectmen on Wednesday, The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro reported Thursday.
