311 has announced the location of their annual “311 Day”, appropriately planned for March 11, 2014 (3/11/14). This year’s event is special because 3/11 is also the set date for the release of their 11th studio album!
311 has been busy working on all of the aspects of planning two huge nights of fun, plus an entire album. On the first night of festivities, March 10, they’ll throw a 311 Fan Party, giving fans the opportunity to meet and share the 311 love in preparation for the following day. Although 311 will not beat the party, fans will get plenty of the band on March 11 with one killer music experience. The band will be returning to New Orleans to host the event, where they celebrated the day in 2008.
Last years two night extravaganza took place in Las Vegas and included a total of 79 different songs being performed. The event drew fans in from every single state, as well as 13 different countries. That being said, the tickets sell out quickly, urging fans to buy early. Stay tuned for ticket sale announcements in mid to late August.
Along with this recording, they’ve made the audio from over twenty other shows available for download including Pow Wow Festival, Red Rocks, and even a few international shows.
Currently, 311 is out on their Unity Tour going coast to coast. They’re joined by Cypress Hill and G Love & Special Sauce for a majority of the summer shows, and then Sublime with Rome and Pennywise will be joining the fun for a few shows also.
Over the course of July and August, the band will have played at 23 shows, this year being their 11th year headlining in amphitheaters.
For a taste of what songs 311 will be playing on the summer tour, their website has a great feature that lets you do just that. With an archive of set lists from shows going back for years, fans can see exactly which songs were played on specific nights. They’re also giving fans the opportunity to take part in the VIP Packages available at some of the concerts, giving them the chance to meet the band, get personal photos, autographs and merch, but tickets are selling fast.
