Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on September 19, 2011

 311 will play The Louisville Palace on December 5th.

All five members of 311 grew up in the 1970′s inOmaha,Nebraska.  In 1990 & 1991 the band released three independent records on their own label (What Have You Records). The records were called “Dammit,” “Hydroponic,” and “Unity.” With these records and their solid live show, the band quickly established a following in theMidwestand then set out for the West Coast.  In July ’95 they released their third cd “311″ and once again set out on tour. By ’96 the shows and the fanbase had grown considerably – and the media which had basically ignored 311 until then, began paying attention. In September of ’96 (14 months after the release of the “311″ album) the song “Down” hit the airwaves and became an across the board success at radio and MTV. “Down” went to #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart and the follow-up single “All Mixed Up” went to #2.  In 2010, 311 returned to the road for Spring, Summer and Fall Tours. Summer tour featured special guest The Offspring. Touring highlights that year included 311 Day inLas Vegas– a sold out show at theMandalayBayArtsCenter(14,000 tickets sold to fans in all 50 U.S. States and 13 countries), as well as first time shows in Guam andIndonesia. Plus first time shows inAlaska, which completed 311 playing all 50 states. Other highlights included Japan, Hawaii, and a special Halloween show in Atlanta.
