Washington, DC date?

I've seen various reports that the DC info is this:

29 September 2009/FedEx Field, Washington, DC/Mon. 6 April (pre sale)

Can anyone confirm? I don't see this anywhere official. Thanks

Also some of the worst traffic in the country at a field that really isn't metro accessible.

It's not too bad - a 20 minute (or 1 mile) walk from the station. Driving isn't much better - they'll probably price gouge in the lots as usual. I usually park at a car dealership nearby for a lot less. But yeah- the rush hour traffic will be bad.

FedEx Field is in PG county

I heard on my local news tonight, that they could have played in Baltimore but opted for FedEx

The stadium the Ravens use probably woulda been better, but Landover is less of a city

More seats=more revenue. The band has also has lots of congressmen, etc. at the DC shows, so it makes sense. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama showed up either.

They are playing in Charlotteville, VA on October 1, which is only a couple hours from DC.

I'll be at Charlottesville (a curious choice) as well. Interestingly the entire population of Charlottesville could fit into some of the stadiums being played (like Fedex Field) with thousands of seats to spare.
