Jiffy Lube Live History
Jiffy Lube Live has been one of the biggest draws for big time concerts in the Washington,
D.C. metro area since first opening its doors in 1995. The venue, located in Bristow, Virginia, was originally named the Nissan
Pavilion at Stone Ridge before changing its name to Jiffy Lube Live in 2010. Plans to build Jiffy Lube Live came into place
after the community around RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. complained about the Grateful Dead playing shows there. A similar
controversy led to the creation of Shoreline Amphitheater in Norther California. Disney had been looking to build a theme
park where Jiffy Lube Live was eventually built and plans for the amphitheater moved forward. Fortunately for music lovers
in the area, Jiffy Lube Live was built and is now one of the most popular performance venues in the area.
