Jiffy Lube Live, as Nissan Pavilion is now known, was originally built to silence complaints from its Bristow, Virginia neighbors about rowdy fans spilling over into the neighborhood from outdoor concerts, especially Jerry Garcia’s “Deadheads,” at nearby RFK Stadium. The venue strictly enforces rules for “tailgating,” and the local populace seems satisfied.
Jiffy Lube Live fills its 35,000 seats (not counting the lawn) by bringing the most popular touring bands to the venue in Bristow, Virginia. Just 35 miles from Washington DC, this amphitheater is conveniently located for the residents of several different urban centers to see their favorite performers. From home-grown Top Forty artists (Bruno Mars) to still-got-it older bands (Styx, Foreigner) and classic solo acts (James Taylor) to Country Western stalwarts (Toby Keith) and international treasures (Avicii, Script), this exclusively concert venue, literally rocks. While tickets are not cheap, the wide choice of seating means an extensive range from the least to most expensive tickets.
