Will be there! The venue is kind of tucked away, not really a bar across the street like in other places.

We have had a TRF tailgate the last 4 Nissan Pavillion/Jiffy Lube Live shows.  We all meet in the parking lot for the Giant grocery store about a mile from the venue.  We then caravan into the venue so we all park together.  You may wish to go the meetup archives for the other Nisssan Pavillion/Jiffy Lube Live in this subforum to see pics of our get-togethers.

I can't wait. (obviously)

Luckily this show will only be about 2 weeks after the opener.  Not too long to resist looking at setlists and thus keeping it a surprise.

Will be camping at Bull Run for the weekend.  Do that for all shows at Jiffy Lube.  10 minute drive to/from.  Makes for a great weekend!

I splurged for the VIP seats with VIP parking and VIP entrance and the VIP lounge.  Enjoyed that experience so much last time we had to do it again.

I'll be there with my 13 and 8 year old sons, and a fellow Rush maniac and his 13 year old son.  Missed the presales, with only 24 hours from announcement to sale, I was 8 hours late...  Got seats somewhere in the back ;^(  I did score good seats for Greensboro, and this will be an adults only show for me!

If anyone is interested, TRF member KennyLee's band kRUSH is playing a "warmup" gig the night before the Jiffy Lube Live show at Fish Head Cantina in Baltimore. It is about an hour north of JLL but they put on a great show and are worth the short drive if you are so inclined. I already know that at least 20-30 of us will be turning Fish Head's into a Rush pre-show party zone that night so it will be a blast… the more the merrier!

Thanks, EMS!   It will be a great time with some serious fans.  Come join the party!

Hello, I may be going to this show, I'm from Toronto and will be in town for work reasons so would love to see it. Whats the deal with this venue, I heard parking is crazy? Kind of random that a venue would be isolated in the middle of nowhere from the sounds of it. By any chance is there a way to get here by train/bus system? Again don't know the area so was just curious.

Anybody catching dave matthews the week before here?

This is just my opinion, but I think it's a pretty crappy venue. I saw the Time Machine tour there and I felt the acoustics were clearly the worst of the 4 venues I was able to hit on that tour. But what I really hated about the venue was trying to leave. They funneled everyone out of one single exit. I made it to my car pretty quickly after the show, but to no avail… took me over an hour and a half to get out of the parking lot. Needless to say, I'm still pretty bitter about that.

Having said all of that, I am still going to this show. What can I say… I just can't help myself. I live only two hours away, and it's a Saturday show… plus I've met a pack of great Rush fans over the past year many of whom are also headed to the gig, so I'll have some great peeps to hang out with afterwards during the painfully slow emptying of the parking lot.

My advice to you is go to the show if you can. Why not take advantage of being in town at the exact right time? If it turns out to be their last tour you will kick yourself later if you don't do it. Also I'm pretty sure the train is not an option, but not sure about the bus.

I have seen Rush at Jiffy Lube 8 times. I agree with EMS about the traffic getting out. It's horrible. I also live about 2 hours away and used to make the drive but now I camp for the weekend of the show (always seems to be a Saturday show here). This means I have a nice post-concert drink before worrying about getting out. The venue is in the middle of nowhere, so a taxi is probably your best option, depending on where you are staying. I will say that I think the sound at Jiffy Lube is great for an outdoor venue. It is a really nice place. Anyway, I say go for it if you are going to be in town. I am thinking this might be it so have tix to 4 shows including opening night.

Tickets in the mail.  Always feels good.

No train/bus/public transportation that I'm aware of.  It is pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

Like others, I have had struggles getting out of there.  Last several Rush shows, I have tailgated together with several other TRF'ers and we chill and hang out after the show until traffic dies down.  We have been proactive and given out free food and drinks (non alcoholic) to the workers around there before the show during our tailgate so they are cool to us after the show.

Rock on.

Well to me, these guys are Genius! But to a genius…. I think you know the rest! :P  I know the Rush show is in the DC area, but make no mistake, Fish Head Cantina in South Baltimore on Friday night will be THE PLACE to meet up before this show. Methinks they might need a new roof after all is said and done! kRush Friday followed by RUSH Saturday is about as good a weekend as a Rush fan could hope for! :haz:

Thank you.  I am one of those who appreciate this.  We need a boot from each and every venue they play.

It's a decent venue for sure... personally, I love the outdoor amphitheaters.

It would really be awesome if they were playing Wolf Trap just for the acoustics... but Wolf Trap has to abide by a noise ordinance and shuts off the stage at 10:00.

As long as one is aware going into it that leaving the Jiffy Lube Live is def. going to take awhile it's all good. Just enjoy a fatty while waiting it out. :smoke:

It truly is in the middle of nowhere, and I don't think busses stop there... certainly isn't a train station either.
