311 bringing ‘Unity’ tour to Dallas with New Politics in August

Ska band 311 is headed back out on tour and the band will be hitting the DFW area for a concert this summer. The tour is the Unity tour and they will play at the South Side Ballroom on August 8 with opening act New Politics. The tickets went on sale on Friday, April 21, for this special concert appearance.

The 311 Unity tour will start off in June in Cleveland and will run through Sept. 1 at the Virginia Beach American Music Festival. The new album that 311 will tour in support of has not received a release date but the band promises that their new album will go on sale this summer in time for their tour dates to start.

According to drummer Chad Sexton, 311 wanted to come up with a name that included their fans in the concept of the album. While the tour is called the Unity tour to indicate the unity with their fans, Sexton said that the new album will be called MOSAIC, which is says means a “combination of diverse elements” that form a whole – representing the band’s relationship with their fans.

The 311 Dallas concert is one of three shows in the state of Texas for the Unity tour. They will also hit Houston on Aug. 7 and New Braunfels on Aug. 6 before making their way to the South Side Ballroom on Aug. 8.

Tickets for the 311 Dallas concert are on sale now here. Tickets for the concert are $39.75 for general admission and this is a standing room only show. New Politics will serve as the opening band and the concert will kick off at 8 p.m. CT.
