On the heels of their 30th Anniversary as a band, 311 is excited to announce their return to the road with their 36-date, coast-to-coast “Live From The Ride” Tour with special guests Iration and Iya Terra. Cincinnati fans will get to see them perform at The ICON Festival Stage at Smale Park on Sunday, September 19, 2021.
Named “Live From The Ride” (as a play on “Live From The Hive,” the online live-stream concert series that the band launched from their Hive Studio in 2020 when touring paused), the 2021 Tour marks the return of one of rock’s most entertaining and dynamic live bands, mixing rock, rap, reggae, and funk into their own unique, hybrid sound.
Select “Live From The Ride” performances will be available to stream on 311 Streamsystem (www.311streamsystem.com), the live-streaming platform that the band debuted in October 2020. Details will be announced in the coming weeks.
“We’re thrilled to get back on the road and feel that live-show energy that both the band and our fans have been craving,” said 311’s Nick Hexum. “The live streams have been great, but nothing compares to having our fans there in person rocking out with us. We know it’s going to feel electric when we take the stage each night and see everyone celebrating the live experience!”
The “Live From The Ride” tour announcement follows last week’s release of 311’s free mobile app; the new official home for the 311 Fan Club. The app features three subscription tiers that provide first access to tickets & VIP packages, plus additional content, message boards, merch exclusives, virtual meet & greets, and more.

When touring paused in 2020, 311 connected with fans online, performing their first 6 albums across 6 monthly live streams from their Hive Studio in Los Angeles on the newly launched 311streamsystem.com. The response to Streamsystem was so positive, 311 has decided to expand the experience to include select shows from the “Live From The Ride” Tour.
Formed in 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska, 311 is one of the longest running original lineups in rock, alongside legends like U2 and Radiohead. 311’s celebrated live shows and dedicated touring schedule have earned them a massive grassroots following, having played more than 2,000 performances across 27 countries. They have released thirteen studio albums, ten of which reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Sales Chart, and sold over 9 million copies in the U.S. Their list of Top 10 radio hits includes “Down,” “All Mixed Up,” “Amber,” “Love Song,” “Come Original,” “Beautiful Disaster,” “Don’t Tread on Me,” “Hey You” and “Sunset in July.”
311’s line-up includes Nick Hexum (vocals/guitar), Tim Mahoney (guitar), SA Martinez (singer, dj), Chad Sexton (drums), and P-Nut (bass).
