Spend the Fourth of July on a beach in Las Vegas with 311


All mixed up and don’t know what to do? Head to Mandalay Bay Beach for the Fourth of July when rock band 311 plays two shows on the sand surrounding the pools at the resort.

Fans can hear 311’s hits, classics and rarities July 3-4, and those who go to the second show will see the band play its self-titled Blue Album in its entirety. Both shows will be followed by fireworks over the Las Vegas Strip.

The band, named for the Omaha police code for indecent exposure, got its big break when songs such as “Down” and “All Mixed Up” came out in 1995. Their biggest hit, “Amber,” debuted in 2001 with a mix of surf guitar and reggae sounds.


The group has 11 studio albums, one live album, one greatest hits album and three DVDs that have sold more than nine million copies in the United States alone.

Tickets start at $55 and a two-show ticket package goes for $95.

Tickets: Mandalay Bay Beach box office, (702) 632-7777
