311 DAY HISTORY:
Since 2000, every other year on March 11th, 311 holds a very special concert event (“311 Day”), which attracts thousands of fans from around the world.
The event is typically held in New Orleans. As a result, the Mayor of New Orleans officially proclaimed March 11th as “311 Day” in New Orleans, even presenting the band with a plaque.
Two of the five 311 Day shows to date, however, had to be moved out of New Orleans. 311 Day 2006 was moved to Memphis, TN due to Hurricane Katrina. And 311 Day 2010 was moved to Las Vegas, NV, due to a massive medical convention overtaking downtown New Orleans.
Billed as “the ultimate 311 concert experience”, 311 Day is the premiere event for 311 fans to gather and celebrate their love of the band and to witness the most exciting 311 show to date. At 311 Day, the band has come to play an extended setlist (5 hours) of hits, rarities and covers; backed by a state-of-the-art light and special effects show. Past shows have also included appearances by circus performers, aerial acrobats, fire twirlers, stilt walkers, jugglers, costumed dancers, drumlines, and marching bands.
March 11th is considered a holiday to 311 fans around the globe – and 311’s dedicated following of fans travel to the 311 Day show from far and wide, with tickets sold to fans in all 50 US States and 10+ different countries.
It’s clear that 311 Day has become more than a concert. It’s a true happening. An event that began organically, has now taken on a life of it’s own. The event serves as a mecca for 311’s most dedicated fan community to unite and celebrate the music of 311.

On 311 Day 2000, 311 hosted a special in-store appearance (meet 311 on 3-11 at 3:11) at Tower Records in the French Quarter, where the Mayor of New Orleans gave the band a plaque proclaiming March 11th as 311 Day in New Orleans. The band met with fans for hours and signed copies of their new album Soundsystem.
For the first ever 311 Day show in 2000, 311 played a 3 hour and 11 minute show, 47 songs to a sold out crowd at State Palace Theatre in New Orleans. This was the longest setlist to date at the time.
The band played such rarities as Rollin’, Borders and debuted Bomb The Town. During Applied Science, several Mardi Gras Indians danced on stage in elaborate, colorful costumes. And other costumed Mardi Gras Big Head paraders (Alien, Jackrabbit, Alice in Wonderland) danced on stage during the song Random.
There was a fan appreciation party on the night before the concert, where fans gathered to meet each other the night before the show. Many of these fans, from all over the US, had met via the 311 website Bulletin Board, but never face to face. That Fan Party tradition, the night before the big show, has carried over every year.
On March 11, 2002…311 returned to New Orleans for a sold out show at UNO Lakefront Arena. 311 played 59 songs – all their classics plus rarities, including Soulsucker, Mindspin, Inner Light Spectrum, Today My Love and the debut of Dancehall.
The show also provided plenty of special surprises, including aerial acrobats suspended high above the stage, fire jugglers, Mardi Gras big head paraders (Puss ‘n Boots, Peter Pan, Tony Danza), confetti cannons, and a massive balloon drop of 2,000 colored balloons that filled the air during “Who’s Got the Herb”.
WORDS FROM P-NUT:
Damn what a show, what a great group of fans, I think that I am still sore…I can’t wait to do it again. It was kind of like all the shows that we’ve ever played wrapped into one…all the places that we’ve ever been, all the people that we’ve seen out on the road…pretty nuts. I love that after all these years, that we can still get people to go crazy and travel all over to see us play a marathon….there’s nothing like it….I love my damn life, thanks for everything that you fans do to help us live out our dreams….Be good. Take over the world, that’s what it’s there for.
New Orleans was a big 311 party in the French Quarter, Friday through Monday night. Fans decked out in 311 t-shirts filled Bourbon Street and sang 311 songs and chanted in the streets. Once again, the Mayor of New Orleans presented the band with a plaque proclaiming March 11th as 3-11 Day in New Orleans.
311 blew the roof off of UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans in celebration of 311 Day!! For a sold-out audience of 8,311 screaming fans, 311 played 68 songs for an astounding 5 hours!; the band’s longest show ever. This was truly a historical and magical night for the band.
The roar of the crowd was deafening as 311 took the stage to rock the band’s most die-hard fans from around the globe. Fans traveled to New Orleans from all 50 US States and 4 countries outside of North America for this spectacular night. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights, the streets of the New Orleans French Quarter were swarming with fans in 311 shirts greeting eachother and singing in the streets. On the day of the show, thousands filled the venue parking lots with coolers and bbq grills for a 311 Day pre-show tailgate party.
311’s musical journey included all the 311 classics (Down, Amber, Feels So Good, Come Original, etc) plus b-sides (Juan Bond, Let The Cards Fall, etc) and rarities (Right Now, Cali Soca, Lose, Summer of Love, Jupiter (last played in ’97), etc). The band also performed several covers; including, The Clash’s “White Man in Hammersmith Palais”, The Cure’s “Love Song”, and Led Zeppelin’s “D’yer M’aker”. Also for the first time ever, 311 debuted “Seems Uncertain” and “Sometimes Jacks Rule The Realm”. P-Nut played a stand-up bass during “Seems Uncertain”. The band also brought Zack Hexum on-stage to play saxophone during the song “Outside.” And Nick showed off some harmonica skills on “White Man in Hammersmith Palais.”
Joining the band onstage at several points in the show were costumed dancers, stilt-walkers, fire twirlers, jugglers, fire eaters and Mardi Gras Big Heads (Jester and Dracula). And at different points in the show, fans were showered with balloons, bubbles and confetti. A true circus of a night!
The entire show (and the week leading up to the show) were documented, recorded and released as a special 311 Day Concert DVD. The “Live From New Orleans” DVD was released in October 2004 and is now certified Platinum.
On March 11, 311 celebrated 311 Day with a huge show at the Mid South Coliseum in Memphis, TN. In front of a sold out crowd of 9,000 energized fans (who travelled from 48 states and at least five countries). 311 rocked 66 songs for a legendary 5 hour show!
This was the first 311 Day to take place outside of New Orleans, as the show had to be moved to an alternate location due to the wind and water damage the UNO Lakefront Arena sustained during Hurricane Katrina.
The band played three sets, covering all the 311 classics as well as covers (from the Clash to the Cure) and rarities, such as Inner Light Spectrum, Full Ride, This Too Shall Pass (first time played since 10/10/93) and Down South (first time played since 4/22/91).
311 had a huge light show, along with confetti cannons, streamer cannons, bubble machines, and cyro jet steam-blasts. In addition, a Moon Landscape backdrop was unveiled for Set 2 and a Mardi Gras backdrop for Set 3. The Mardi Gras backdrop was in honor of the beloved city of New Orleans. The Moon Landscape was the backdrop on the1996/1997 TransisTour (so 311 paid tribute by playing an eight song block from the Transistor album).
Along with a great night of music and special effects, the 311 Day show included stilt walkers, poi glow twirlers, burlesque dancers, an Elvis impersonator, a drumline and a marching band.
During Intermission 1, a 15 member Drumline performed a routine that included some of the same drum patterns as Applied Science. And during Intermission 2, the 15 member Drumline was joined by a 12 member Marching Band, making for a 27 person ensemble that performed elements of the songs Down and Six!
The players comprised an all-star performing group of musicians from around the country. Performers had marched and instructed various world champion drum and bugle corps including the Cavaliers, the Santa Clara Vanguard, the Blue Coats and the Blue Devils.
3-11 Day 2006 was filmed by HDNet and recorded in 5.1 surround sound for broadcast on HDNet.
14,000 fans from all 50 states and 13 countries rocked together and celebrated in unity during an amazing 5 hour epic show!
From the Fan Party at the Howlin’ Wolf (where 311 fans from around the world gathered the night before the concert to meet eachother), to the 311 Fans Care Project (where 311 fans volunteered to help rebuild houses damaged by Hurricane Katrina), to the Pre-Show Gathering at the Bridge (with music by the Soul Rebels Brass Band) to the spectacular 311 Show (where 311 played 63 songs…with fans on their feet and cheering for 5 hours straight) to the Afterparty on Bourbon Street (which lasted well into the wee hours of the morning)…the positive vibes and unity of the 311 Community was truly amazing! For three full days, the city of New Orleans was swarming with 311 fans proudly wearing their 311 shirts and chanting and singing in the streets, hotels, restaurants and bars at all hours of the day and night!
311 rocked 63 songs across three 21 song sets, covering 311 classics, rarities and a first time cover – The Joker by Steve Miller Band. Some of the more rare tunes included The Continuous Life (first time played), Seal the Deal (first time played), Bomb the Town (last played 2/26/02), Today My Love (last played 4/8/02), Right Now (last played 3/14/04), Juan Bond (last played 3/11/04), Livin and Rockin (last played 12/16/05), and Strangers (last played 3/11/06). The band ended their show with the song “Paradise”, as this tremendous show truly was paradise for the band and their fans!
311 had a huge light show, including state of the art lasers, versatube video screens, confetti cannons, streamer cannons, and cyro-jet co2 steam blasts. Also, Chad Sexton’s hydraulic drum-riser lifted him 15 feet off the stage during the drum solo of Applied Science!
During Intermission 1, New Orleans’ famous Rebirth Brass Band took the stage; a 9 member funky jazz band, who were joined by 4 Lady Buck Jumpers and 2 Mardi Gras Indians who danced in elaborate costumes. A classic taste of New Orleans!
During Intermission 2, special Unity Tour announcements were made on the jumbo screens and over the PA system. The arena buzzed with excitement when it was announced that 311 and Snoop Dogg would hit the road together for Unity Tour 2008.
Video footage from the 311 Day 2008 show appears on a bonus DVD included with the Deluxe Edition of the band’s album Uplifter. The DVD is an 80 minute documentary titled “The Road to 311 Day 2008”, directed by Wayne Price. The DVD includes a behind-the-scenes look at the band and their fans during the week leading up to 311 Day, as well as backstage footage, interviews, fan footage and 8 live songs from the 311 Day 2008 concert.from all
WORDS FROM ADAM RASPLER (311 management):
After three days in New Orleans, it’s truly evident that the 311 fanbase is a united community and a family more vibrant than ever! The love and excitement in the arena (and throughout the streets of New Orleans) was really incredible. It was truly inspiring to all of us. The band gave everything they had up there on stage (another amazing 5 hour show!). And as they took their final bow at the end of “Paradise”…we had our arms raised and tears of joy in our eyes… looking at the band and all the fans together celebrating such a triumphant moment. It was such a beautiful ending to a legendary show. It really was Paradise. Thank you all so much for being a part of it, for creating it, for celebrating it. We realize that 311 Day has become much more than just a concert. It’s a happening. An event. An unforgettable experience. Thank you.
The atmosphere in Vegas was off the hook!!! 12,000 fans, representing all 50 US States and 10 Countries, swarmed Vegas for a most special 3 day event. The energy from the fans was electric! And the band delivered big-time with a fantastic 60 song, 5 hour show!!
The band rocked such rarities as Slinky (last played 10/10/93), Color (last played 11/26/97), Brodels (last played 6/15/00), Solar Flare (last played 7/12/07), Still Dreaming (last played 8/12/07), Six (last played 8/15/07), and It’s Getting OK Now (last played 8/28/07). And for the first time live, the band played Sun Comes Through, Two Drops in the Ocean and Get Down. For the entire setlist, check out the 311 Day Setlist section of: http://setlist.com/311/
The 311 DAY show featured the band’s biggest stage, light & laser production ever! An intricate light and laser show was enhanced by circular video screens and an in-the-round stage, where the band played to fans in front, in back and to the sides of them. No matter where you were in the house, fans were on their feet for five hours, feeling the magic that is 311 Day!
During Applied Science, the drum platform raised 15 feet and rotated 360 degrees as Chad played his extended drum solo, only to have the other bandmembers also have their platforms raise into mid-air for the full band drum circle. During three Intermissions, Cirque-style performers entertained the crowd, including the Rolla Bolla balancing act, African Acrobats and a Hula Contortionist. Amazing routines from them all, adding to the uniqueness of the night. From the Fan Party, to the amazing Concert, to the Beach Party featuring the Wailers & DJ Soulman, to 311 fans swarming the casino floors and bars, it was an great adventure from start to finish!
Wow!!…What an amazing 311 DAY weekend in Las Vegas!
The celebration was kicked off by the Fan Party at the Joint @ Hard Rock Hotel and followed by two amazing three-hour 311 shows at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

311 also stepped into a time-machine that took them back to 1990…where they played four songs from their early demo days on a theatrical stage-set modeled after the basement in Nick Hexum’s family’s house in Omaha, Nebraska – where the band originally formed & rehearsed in the early 90’s.
The two shows were Webcast via Nugs.tv & Live311.com where thousands of fans tuned in to witness the magic of the two nights. Audio downloads of 311 DAY 2018 are available at Live311.com.
