311 Parks in Las Vegas for 2010's '311 Day'

311 is capitializing on its namesake once again by featuring its once yearly special concert on 3/11. Recent years it has been in Memphis and New Orleans, but for 2010 the boys head west for Sin City. The Mandelay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas will play host for “the ultimate 311 experience” as its been dubbed.

In the past, these shows have featured 5-hour musical sets combined with special effects lights show. Don’t forget the occasional appearance by acrobats, marching bands, stilt walkers and other general elements of fun chaos. The 2008 version of 311 Day brought 14,000 devoted fans from all 50 states and imports from 13 countries. The event drew such acclaim that the mayor of New Orleans declared March 11 to be “311 Day” in New Orleans. I wonder if he’s feeling a bit slighted now that it’s picked up sticks to Vegas?

Tickets for the 2010 event will go onsale via Ticketmaster on October 31. Tickets will also be available for purchase through Mandalay Bay’s box office.
