Happy 3/11 Day! 311, Dirty Heads Take Co-Headline Dates Throughout North America

– 311 & Dirty Heads

March 11, or 3/11, is a special day of celebration for fans of the reggae-rock band 311, and today will see nationwide screenings of the band’s film and the announcement of a co-headline amphitheater tour with Dirty Heads.

311’s film “Enlarged to Show Detail 3 (ETSD 3)” will be screened around the world tonight. The 90-minute film largely focuses on the fan community. Tickets are available at 311inCinemas.com.

The shed tour will feature special guest The Interrupters and openers Dreamers and Bikini Trill.

Presales begin March 19 and the general onsale will be on March 22 at 10 a.m.

The tour is working with PLUS1 (whose Marika Anthony-Shaw recently spoke at Pollstar Live! 2019), meaning $1 of every ticket sale will go to charity.

Finally, in celebration of 311 day, the band opened up pre-orders for its next album.

311 just completed its sixth 311 Caribbean Cruise, which went from Tampa, Fla., to Belize and Mexico.

311 reports from its co-headline tour with The Offspring last year included grosses over $200,000 in Bristow, Va.; Wantagh, N.Y.; and Phoenix. The band also grossed more than $1 million over two nights at Park Theater At Park MGM Las Vegas March 10-11.

Dirty Heads did their own shed tour with Iration last year, which grossed more than $100,000 in Saint Augustine, Fla.; Chula Vista, Calif.; and Bonner, Mont.

Reggae-rock tours are big business and the summer amphitheater tours seem to be the preferred form.

Slightly Stoopid’s manager, Jon Phillips of Silverback Artist Management, previously spoke to Pollstar about the intersection of the band’s own reggae-rock tours and marijuana culture, which is also growing as it becomes legal across the U.S.

“It’s a lifestyle, a movement, and now it’s here,” Phillips told Pollstar. “The fact of the matter is it’s become more acceptable, the stigma is gone, and the bands that I’ve worked with have always professed their affinity for it and the freedom that comes along with it.”
