Local News: It's official! Nissan Pavilion is now Jiffy Lube Live


The venue formerly known as Nissan Pavilion: Jiffy Lube Live.

Over the weekend, we had a little fun with the advance buzz that Nissan Pavilion in Bristow would be changing its name to Jiffy Lube Live. We hope you like the name change as much as we do. It looks like we'll all be heading out to Jiffy Lube Live for at least seven summers to come.

Today, concert promoter Live Nation announced that they've signed on for a seven year partnership with Jiffy Lube. "We feel that this is a tremendous opportunity for us to reach out to music audiences as diverse as the vehicles we service," said Dale Smith, president of Jiffy Lube Washington Area Co-op, Inc. in a press release. "Jiffy Lube Live will allow us to keep our brand out in front of current as well as the next generation of drivers."

Ain't that the truth. Nothing to remind you that you're almost at 3,000 miles quite like sitting in the bumper-to-bumper purgatory that is I-66 en route to Nissan, err, Jiffy Lube Live.

I wonder if Jiffy Lube realives how awful this name is? Couldn't they have at leats called in "Jiffy Lube Pavillion"? "Jiff Lube Live" sounds like a bad experiment in reality tv or a dirty joke.

"Going to see Fiddy at The Lube?" No, it just doesn't work.

Maybe while we're stuck in the lot waiting to go out we can get our oil changed.

A name change won't alter the fact that the process of trying to drive to, and from, the venue is an abomination that no sane person should have to experience. I'd rather be strapped to a chair for 24 hours and forced to listen to Starship sing "We Built This City" than try to navigate a drive involving Nissan (er, Jiffy Lube).

This is, undoubtedly, the worst venue in all of North America. The location is atrocious and the staff/police are complete pricks. Seriously, worst venue in the history of history.

This article nails half the problem with "Nothing to remind you that you're almost at 3,000 miles quite like sitting in the bumper-to-bumper purgatory that is I-66 en route to Nissan, err, Jiffy Lube Live."
