TOUR HISTORY: In the late 1980′s, before the formation of 311, various 311 band members began performing live in projects such as The Eds, The Westside High Jazz Band, Fish Hippos and Unity. 311′s first show under the name “311″ was on June 10, 1990 opening for the band Fugazi in Omaha, NE.
In the early 90’s, 311 essentially lived on the road, building their grassroots following city by city. In the summer of ’93, 311’s RV and trailer caught fire as the band was on a Missouri highway. Their RV, trailer, equipment and personal belongings burned to the ground. Nonetheless, the band persevered. With borrowed equipment, the band was back on stage the next night for a rockin’ show in Omaha! (article 1, article 2)
Over thirty five years, 311 has played thousands of shows. An amazing feat, but no more amazing than the incredible live show 311 puts on night after night! Along the way, 311 has chosen an impressive list of opening acts on their way up including – Korn, No Doubt, Deftones, Incubus, Sugar Ray, Dirty Heads, Alien Ant Farm, Hoobastank, The Roots and Matisyahu. Also supporting 311 on their summer Unity Tours has been Snoop Dogg, the Offspring, Sublime with Rome, Cypress Hill, and Slightly Stoopid.
