311 Announces Official Veeps Live Stream for 311 Day Concerts

This coming March 9-10, 311 will host its fan-favorite concert event, 311 Day, for two special concert events.

It’s at these shows that the band — vocalist/guitarist Nick Hexum, D.J./vocalist S.A. Martinez, guitarist Tim Mahoney, bassist Aaron “P-Nut” Wills and drummer Chad Sexton — bust out marathon sets, diving deep into their rich catalog of albums (which now numbers 13 so far) for fan favorites, album tracks, rarities and more, usually adding in special surprises and cover songs.

This year, these concerts arrive at a busy time for the group, which has expanded its touring plans to visit Japan, the U.K. and more — all while finishing up work on a new studio album, which will be the group’s 14th.

For those unable to be on hand at the venue at these 311 Day gigs, the band has revealed an official live stream partnership with Veeps, which will stream each concert live via its popular streaming platform.

Per a news release:

Fans worldwide will have the opportunity to experience 311 Day from the comfort of their homes via an exclusive livestream provided by VEEPS. Livestream passes are available for $16.99 for a single-day pass or $26.99 for a two-day pass. Livestream tickets are on-sale now at https://veeps.events/311-livestream

From our recap of the 2022 events in Las Vegas:

Since launching its 311 Day events with a show in New Orleans in 2000 with a 46-song performance, the band outdid itself in subsequent years, dusting off rarities, new cover songs, giving world premieres to new/forgotten material and leaving no stone unturned as far as set list surprises are concerned.

That 311 is even able to play gigs like this in 2022 is a testament to its fan base, which has stuck with the band through thick and thin, through the lean years and gaps between records. It’s that feverish commitment by its audience that lands most new 311 records on the charts, without scoring a “hit song” and being released in an era far removed from the alternative rock-forward world that boosted the group in the mid-1990s in the first place.

The band extended the love to these fans both nights of 311 Day 2022, coming together to celebrate each other in a way few musical acts do. Attending the shows, one is reminded of the communal nature of music and how it brings people of all walks of life together.
