Three Days Of 311

Next year’s edition of 311 Day will be three times as fun because the band’s bi-annual celebration is expanding to a three-day event.

The 2012 event is scheduled for March 9-11 in Las Vegas because of course the festival had to include that special day that only comes once a year: 3/11.

The weekend kicks off March 9 with a fan party at The Joint @ Hard Rock Hotel/Casino followed by two unique shows March 10-11 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Fans can expect their favorite band to play an extended setlist of hits, rarities, covers and classics complete with a state-of-the-art light and special effects show.

311 will be sure to show off tunes from the band’s latest album, Universal Pulse. The group’s tenth studio album was released in July on 311 Records/ATO Records.

Billed as “the ultimate 311 concert experience,” past shows have included setlists that last up to five hours and appearances by circus performers, aerial acrobats, fire twirlers, stilt walkers, drumlines and marching bands.

Pre-sale tickets went on sale to 311 Hive members earlier this week. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday at 10 a.m. PST through No single-day tickets will be sold.
