DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - Western Connecticut State University in Danbury has sold out all 3,500 seats for a visit by the Dalia Lama this week, but alternatives are available to hear the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people.

The News-Times of Danbury reports (http://bit.ly/T7lUjW ) that a live feed will be broadcast off-site to accommodate more audience members. His two talks scheduled for Thursday and Friday also will be webcast.

WestConn will broadcast the live feed at Ives Concert Hall at the university's Midtown campus. It has 750 seats.

The webcast will be posted on YouTube after the talk.
