One band attributed to bringing mainstream popularity to reggae-fusion in America announced their annual Unity Tour.
311 has had a long and illustrious career, spanning over 25-years. Beginning with their full-length studio album debut in 1993, 311 has reached the ears of music lovers across the globe with 11 studio albums, two independent releases, two platinum albums and four gold albums to their credit.
One of the biggest and most notable tags 311 has attached to their career, happens to be spreading reggae music and the reggae-rock-rap fusion to the masses in their peak years in the 1990s. Other bands at that time that shared the spotlight in the reggae fusion were The Police, Sublime, No Doubt, and many others.
All these years later, and 311 is still releasing new studio albums and touring on their annual summer 311: Unity Tour throughout the United States. This year’s edition will feature special guest Matisyahu, and will span across the United States from June 29th to August 15th.
The band’s announcement came prior to their participation in the Rhythm, Wine & Brews Festival in Indio, California on March 5th, which also featured Matisyahu as a special guest, as well as a week before their biennial 311 Day concert, this time on 3/11 and 3/12 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Some of the tour stops already revealed include Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Florida, Maine, New Hampshire, and finishing up the tour in California at the Hollywood Palladium and The Masonic in San Francisco.
