Jiffy Lube Live banned tailgating last spring over concern about endless tailgates and excessive drinking at its massive parking lot, Ambassadors. Fans were aghast, creating a handful of "Boycott Jiffy Lube" Facebook groups and online petitions. On Thursday, the venue, run by Live Nation, announced it would bring tailgating back starting with the new concert season under a new set of rules and increased supervision from police and staff. The Bristow, Va.-based venue describes the return of the tailgates not as a cave-in to fan demand, but a reconfiguration of a tradition the venue had been well known for. To keep the tailgating in check, the venue came up with a new set of guidelines in in cooperation with Prince William County Police; they are: -  "All parking is on a first come, first served basis and spaces cannot be reserved or held for other cars.  Each car must occupy only one space and all tailgating activities must occur directly in front, behind or inside the car.  Due to the space challenges and safety concerns, tents will not be allowed in order to keep all pedestrian and drive isles free from obstruction.

Michael Franti has recorded music for decades, and even had a Top 20 hit with the song "Say Hey (I Love You). " But Franti hadn't collaborated with writers from outside his band until he began working on his new album, "All People," which will be released July 30. Before his show Friday at Jiffy Lube Live, Franti talked about how current events influence his writing, and his household sayings. You're touring with Train this summer. How did that come about? I'm super excited traveling with them.

Kiss and Motley Crue performed at Jiffy Lube Live on Friday night. Midnight Sun contributor Jay Trucker was there. Thirty years after they first toured together, Kiss and Motley Crue are back out on the road, opening their 2012 summer tour on an intermittently stormy night in Bristow. But if Crue is officially the opening act on this tour, their bigger stage show, equal-lengthed setlist and more frenzied audience suggests otherwise.  Motley Crue's stage show is a spectacle.

For Tim McGraw, the process of selecting songs for an album and picking movie scripts is no different. He must respond to the material on a basic emotional level. "I have to take an intellectual cap off and wait to be hit viscerally," McGraw, the 46-year-old country star and actor, said from the road recently. "You have to be moved. Whether it's funny, sad, tragic or even mean - something's got to prickle the hairs on the back of your neck. " Although McGraw - who headlines Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Va., on Saturday - has sold more than 40 million albums and won three Grammy Awards, he says he's only now figuring out how to craft the music he wants to create.
