Jiffy Lube Live

Jiffy Lube Live (formerly Nissan Pavilion at Stone Ridge or Nissan Pavilion) in Bristow, Virginia, is an outdoor live performance amphitheater in suburban Prince William County, about 35 miles west of Washington, DC. Owned and operated by Live Nation, the amphitheater can seat 25,000: 10,000 in reserved seats and 15,000 on the lawn.[1]

Development of the venue was a result of work by Cellar Door Productions, a prominent concert promoter in the area at the time. Two separate controversies led to the opening of the venue. The community had voiced complaints regarding the Grateful Dead shows at nearby RFK Stadium, a circumstance similar to the creation of Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California 9 years prior. Meanwhile, the Walt Disney corporation was in the planning stages of its proposed Disney's America theme park in the area. Locals were angered at the proposed theme park. As a result, authorities granted permits for the pavilion instead. The location was decided due to proximity to the interstate as well as the capacity of the proposed facility to handle large crowds over multiple days. The amphitheater opened in June 1995, with a show including KC and the Sunshine Band and The Village People. The Grateful Dead were scheduled to perform three shows at the venue in the fall of 1995 but the tour was cancelled due to the death of band member Jerry Garcia.[2]

In July 24, 2004, the American hard rock band Kiss recorded their concert here for the live album Rock the Nation Live! (DVD).

Former Senator Barack Obama held a rally for his 2008 presidential campaign at the venue on June 5, 2008.[3][4]

On January 8, 2010, the name of the venue was changed from “Nissan Pavilion” to “Jiffy Lube Live” as a result of a business agreement between Live Nation and Jiffy Lube Washington Area Co-op Inc.[5]

In February 2011 the venue posted to its website that it would strictly enforce its existing no-tailgating rule for its parking lots before and after concerts in conjunction with the Prince William County Police Department. Organizers cited safety concerns as reasons for the ban, though they planned to continue to sell alcohol inside the venue.[6] In January 2012 the venue posted that tailgating would be returning with a set of rules posted on their website.[7]

Since its opening, Jiffy Lube Live has hosted a variety of musicians and bands. Annual events include Jimmy Buffett, WMZQfest and the Mayhem Festival. 2008 featured LeRoi Moore's last performance with the Dave Matthews Band before his death later in the year; The concert was later released as Live Trax Vol. 14. Other events include a variety of festivals such as Farm Aid and Ozzfest, along with co-headliners and solo acts.[8] Other notable musical acts include Widespread Panic[9] and Phish. In addition, some high schools in Prince William County and Fauquier County hold their graduation ceremonies there each June. In August 2012, Linkin Park held a concert in the venue.

Depeche Mode performed at the amphitheatre three times: the first one was on May 21, 2006 during their Touring the Angel, in front of a crowd of 9,036 people. The second one was on July 28, 2009 during their Tour of the Universe, in front of a crowd of 13,667 people. The third one was on September 8, 2013 during their Delta Machine Tour, in front of a sold out crowd of 11,041 people. The 2006 and 2009 shows were recorded for the group's live albums projects Recording the Angel and Recording the Universe, respectively.
