“311 Day” 2012 Coming to MGM Grand Garden Arena March 10-11

Every other year on March 11 (“311 Day”), the multi-platinum rock group 311 holds a special concert event that attracts thousands of fans from around the world. This year’s “311 Day” will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena with special performances Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11, 2012. Tickets are on sale now and the purchase of one ticket grants access to both performances.

Billed as “the ultimate 311 concert experience”, “311 Day” is the premier event for 311 fans to gather and celebrate their love of the band and to witness an extraordinary show. 311 plays an extended setlist of hits, rarities, covers and classics; 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, drumlines, and marching bands.

March 11 is considered a holiday to 311 fans around the globe and the band’s dedicated fans will travel to the “311 Day” show from far and wide. 311 Day was last in Las Vegas in 2010 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. The show sold out in advance and tickets were sold to fans in all 50 U.S. states and 13 different countries. The band played a five-hour show (60 songs) for the sold-out crowd. Due to the huge success and excitement surrounding the 2010 show, the band decided to return to Vegas for a two night celebration in 2012.

It’s clear that “311 Day” has become more than a concert. It’s a true happening; an event that began organically and has taken on a life of its own. On March 10 & 11, 2012, Las Vegas will be swarming with 311 fans from around the country & around the globe – meeting together to celebrate and experience the music of 311.
