Living in Bristow, VA and working as a Realtor®, I get many chances to drive around the area and see what's happening. One well traveled road for me is Wellington Road, from Devlin Road to University. Along this stretch of Wellington Road a large music venue is located.
This venue, as long as it had been in existence, has been called the Nissan Pavillion. Not so anymore. I drove by a few weeks ago and noticed a new sign at the entrance to the music venue: Jiffy Lube Live. Sounds odd when you're used to something being branded with another name.
I just did a quick check of Jiffy Lube Live's events and it seems only the name has changed. The WMZQ fest will be happening in early June (that's a big Country ticket in our area, named for our major country music radio station), American Idol Live will be there in late July, and of course, the time tested favorite and most likely to bring Bristow-Gainesville traffic to a halt for early tailgating, Jimmy Buffet will be performing two dates in early September.
If you're into more of the classic rockers, you will be pleased to know that Styx and Foreigner are a doubleheader event this summer, Sting will be there with an orchestra, and one of the best musical acts I've ever seen perform, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, are coming to town.
There's a heck of a lot more than those highlights, so be sure to check Jiffy Lube Live's online calendar of events for the 2010 season.
