There are still tickets for sale on 3/12 . I would hope that there are enough ABB fans in DC for a sold out show especially on a Friday night. I am making a 200 mile trip to see them and would like to see a full house and great vibes.

Couple of things to remember about DC and Constitution Hall. First of all, Constitution Hall isn't the best venue for a "rock concert". Not a lot of bars, resturants in the area, also parking can be a problem. Second thing to remember, in DC a lot of sales for concerts are "walk ups" the night of the show. Unless, an act is a "sure" sell-out, then many people opt to wait to last minute to buy tickets. Hopefully the Constitution Hall show sells well (I doubt there will be a "sell out" crowd) and a good time will be had by all that are there.

I wanted to go to the Boston run but I waited to late and all 3 dates were sold out. So I opted for 1 show in DC. Anyone know how many seats the DC venue has?
Also what is the venue like?

Thanks,

It is big U shaped hall with 12 orch sections, surrounded by box seats and then stadium sections above that.

http://www.ticketmaster.com/seatingchart/172054/5701

It seats from 3000 to 3700 depending on how far the stage is extended and which seats are obstructed.

They have improved the acoustics since the building also is the home of the Washington Opera. and extended
the stage to accommodate the theatrics of the Opera.

There is also a Museum http://www.dar.org/museum/ if you get there early enough to visit

Parking got much worse after 9/11, a lot of the streets you used to be able to park on, are now Barricaded.

Best bet is to walk from one of the Farragut Square metro stations; about a 15 minute walk. I usually
park in Silver Spring and take the Metro Red Line to Farragut Square and head south on 17th street.

Initially, I didn't think I could make this show, but now... Hmmm.
