311 Tickets Las Vegas
311 is an American rock band from Omaha, Nebraska, formed in 1988. Their musical structure incorporates a variety of musical styles including alternative rock, hip hop, reggae, and funk. Since their self-titled album in 1995, all but one of their albums (the exception being Live) have been in the top 15 of the Billboard Top 200. Eight of their songs have been top 5 hits on the Billboard Modern Rock Radio chart. They have sold 8.5 million units in the US.
Their first major record, Music was released in 1993. The single "Do You Right" received airplay on modern rock stations and reached #27 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart. However, the album failed to chart at the time.
Financing their own tour, the band drove around in an old RV borrowed from Chad's father, and towed a Volkswagen bus which held their equipment. After tackling a steep incline while en route to an Omaha show, the RV caught fire. The only door out of the vehicle was surrounded by flames so the band jumped through the fire. All of their equipment and possessions were lost, though no one was seriously injured. The band continued their tour, using borrowed equipment. The incident is referenced in various songs, including Omaha Stylee, with the lyrics:
When one girl dreamt a fire in hers and then it happened
To me and my family my bro's and I were driving
The RV bleeding flames us leaping through fire surviving
Zoned with no home there was fire all on it
Umm let me have my life I want it
Uplifter, 311's ninth studio album, was released on June 2, 2009. The album, produced by Bob Rock, debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, the band's highest chart position to date. The CD/DVD combo includes 14 songs (12 w/ the Standard edition plus two extra tracks)and an 83 min video of the "Road to 311 Day 2008," a behind-the-scenes look at the band's celebrated day: March 11. There are also two exclusive tracks from Amazon and iTunes, so 16 total new songs. The album was produced at the Hive Recording Studios in Los Angeles, CA, currently owned by 311. When asked how the new album fits in with the older releases, Nick Hexum (lead singer) said, 'It's a similar feeling among the band members to the one we had after recording Music and the Blue album.' And according to SA Martinez, the band's Vocalist/Turntablist 'We've just finished what is perhaps our finest album yet.'
