311 and New Orleans go way back, and today that history continues.The popular rap-rock band just announced a two day Mardi Gras run at the Filmore New Orleans.
Both shows are on the second weekend of Mardi Gras, Thursday, February 20 & Friday, February 21 of 2020. Mardi Gras day falls on Tuesday, February 25 this year.
NOLA & 311 have a history dating back as early as 2000. 311 celebrates their namesake on the 11th of the third month (March) each even-numbered year. ‘311 Day’ as it’s known to most 311 fans has long been celebrated all over the country, but New Orleans has been the unofficial home of this memorable day.
311 Day tradition launched at the State Palace Theatre on Canal Street in 2000. From there is moved to the Lakefront Arena and then finally the larger Smoothie King Center. For only the 4th time since 2000, 311 Day will not be held in NOLA, as the popular day is headed to Las Vegas for 2020. But not to worry, as 311 is still making a trip to NOLA to headline the beautiful new Filmore venue inside Harrah’s Casino.
