Members of “The Hive” aka [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]311[/lastfm] fans – listen up! The band has just released more details about their annual celebration – 311 Day 2012 in Las Vegas! For many fans, 311 Day (March 11th, get it?) is a joyous occasion, creating the opportunity to meet tons of other fans and enjoy a weekend filled with great music! This years festivities includes TWO concerts at the MGM Grand, a private fan party, and more!
The first major celebration of 311 Day happened back in 2000 in New Orleans. The band played 47 songs, including rarities, special covers, and fan favorites. Check out the setlist HERE!
In 2002, 311 took to the New Orleans stage yet again, performing more songs than the previous year – a total of 59 songs! New to their live performances was the rare track, “Dancehall,” from their Enhanced to Show Detail EP. Check out the setlist HERE!
In 2004, 311 filmed their concert, once again in New Orleans, for their DVD (if you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest you do), and played a total of 68 songs! Check out the setlist HERE!
Due to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, 311 Day was moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 2006, where the band played for almost 5 hours! Included were some very rare songs, including “This Too Shall Pass,” from their rare online album, Omaha Sessions. Check out the setlist HERE!
In 2008, the band returned to New Orleans to a sold-out audience of over 14,000 fans and played 63 songs! Check out the setlist HERE!
In 2010, 311 Day moved to Sin City, at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, where fans were treated to 60 songs, which all were filmed in HD for a webcast on-demand showcase. Check out the setlist HERE!
311 Day 2012 will continue the tradition of an epic weekend! The Vegas festivities begin Friday, March 9th with an exclusive 311 Fan Party at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The weekend continues with not one, but TWO live concerts from the band, Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th at the MGM Grand, which are guaranteed to be absolutely amazing – an experience any 311 fan would not want to miss!
