The people who publish these dates should really brush up on their geography.

Not exactly Washington D.C., even though it's nearby.

I agree.  Often, Seattle is listen when a band plays George, WA.  It's over 2 hours away!

it has already come and gone...that was th eworst experience I have had buying tickets in a long while....I got thru it an dended up with freat floor seats but that was thru a connection.  Ticketmaster is so awful- it os a horrible shame what a money hungry monster it is.

Hope I make it in time for the show, if at all....my flight is scheduled to land in DC at 3:30pm tomorrow

Overnight into Friday, look for heavy rain moving through the central Appalachians to the Eastern Seaboard. The corridor from Washington, D.C., to New York City will see heavy rain well into Friday.
