    7/23 Washington, DC Jiffy Lube Live 5/15 10am
    Jiffy Lube Live? What the hell is that? I had to look it up - the naming rights for the Nissan Pavillion in Virginia went to Jiffy Lube early this year. The good news (I hope) is that at 25,000 seats, it's got to be one of the largest venues for the tour. (As opposed to about 16,000 seats at the Verizon Center downtown where they usually appear.)

    The bad news is that those 25,000 people have to squeeze in through four lane country roads once they get off the freeway to approach the venue. It takes hours to get in and out, and there is no public transportation. Seriously, even though I live in downtown DC, it will be faster for me to drive to Baltimore for the concert than to fight the crowds at the "Jiffy Lube".

    10am? Have the shows always started this early? I've never seen the Idol tour before.

    I believe that is the time that tickets go on sale, not the time of the concert.

    Raaorback is correct. The 10 am time is for ticket sales, on May 15th. Don't know about a pre-sale, but I'm keeping my ears and eyes open.

    After an absence of at three years, the Idol tour is finally coming close to home for me. Southeastern VA was ignored since Chesapeake native Chris Richardson performed in nearby Hampton.

    I'm surprised that the show is at the United Center and not at the Rosemont venue as well, because of Lee's home town in Mount Prospect. Too bad.

    I'm surprised that they're delusional enough to book United Center with all its 23K seats.

    The last two tours have sold very well - and some cities sold out completely. Maybe they are basing their planning on that. If that is the case, then I think they will be disappointed. I went to the last two tours, but I do not really have any great desire to rush out and see these kids, especially since it will require more effort to get to a venue this year to do it.

    I found the reason for the many venue changes in this season's tour: It's being run by Live Nation, so they moved the tour to the venues that they own (where possible). Good luck with that. I'm not hauling my cookies an hour outside of town just to sit in traffic and park to see this lineup of performers. If they were back at the Verizon Center downtown with easy public transportation and surrounded by the best restaurants in the city, I would have considered it.

    Instead I'll save my pennies to see Kris and Adam this summer.
