Dick Clark

Candlelight Vigil

at American Bandstand Theater

4/18/2012 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dick Clark will be honored tonight with a candlelight vigil outside of the theater he founded in Branson, Missouri ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the theater tells us ... the staff, along with several D.C. fans, are planning to gather outside of the theater before tonight's performance to honor the entertainment legend.

We're told the people at the theater are also dedicating tonight's show to Dick's life and legacy.

FYI -- Dick opened the theater in 2006 ... and it contains the largest collection of D.C. memorabilia in the world.

Although it's sad...he was 82 years old and in bad health. People die every day, I just wish the media would honor falling soldiers the same way they honor celebrities.

I almost never saw his show, yet I was very conscious of him, sort of like one of those MC's of life, I guess. It's funny how certain celebs become part of my internal mental decor.
