Bought tix in the Citi presale today. Got Section 101, Row C, Seats 16 & 17. They may be off to the side a ways, but seem decent. I omly hope I don't pull up something better later, but I doubt I will, and if I do, I can likely re-home these.

I'll be looking for a single in the MT pre-sale.
I wasnt really planning on this show but it kinda makes sense.


1. my return flight from Manchester is through BWI so I can easily extend 1 day
2. I've never been to Nissan Pavilion.
3. It's been a loooong time since I visited my sisters that live in the D.C. Metro area


Only real downside is that this adds 2 hotel nights to my trip but what the hell.. if something good pops up I'll take it.

I just realized this exact same thing today, my flight between Pittsburgh and Manchester goes thru BWI.. I think this is a sign from the Rock n Roll Gods that I should also go to this show..

Pittsburgh to Manchester
Manchester to BWI
BWI to Pittsburgh

That would be three shows in five days!

They sound good there but it is a hike from Bmore.
  I think it will be a good show.

9/18/10 'official' TRF tailgate - Nissan Pavillion/Jiffy Lube Live - we didn't have as many pictures of this one posted.  Of course, I am too lazy to take any myself and upload them.  I guess I was too busy drinking beer and playing some mean air guitar.

I agree. I saw Time Machine there and I'd say it was the worst venue I've ever seen them play. I sat dead center 50 rows back and I thought the sound was bad. Then it took me about 90minutes to get out of the parking lot afterward. Apparently they funnel everyone out of ONE exit. I was there very early (about 4:00 PM) and thought I had a good parking spot, but it's never taken me longer to start my ride home from any event than it took me to get out of Jiffy Lube Live.  new_thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Don't think the sound is that bad (wouldn't say that it good either).

I will agree with you on the traffic getting out.  I recall trying to leave an Allman Brothers show about 10 years ago and moved about 50 yards in an hour.

The last few Rush shows, I haven't been in a hurry to get out.  So, we have had post-show tailgate with the TRF bunch.  Only problem is that sometimes security will come by and 'strongly' encourage you to leave, even though cars aren't moving.  I haven't been harrassed to bad though after the show.  If the cars are to the point of moving steadily, I will abide by security suggestion and get going.

Back at the hotel, we partied with the Scotts until about 3.  When we crashed, it was apparent that they weren't going to be done anytime soon.  I'm guessing they were over their jet lag by this point.
