311, Incubus To Hook Up On Joint Tour

The merry rock and rap funksters of 311 will team up with Incubus for an extensive tour of amphitheaters and arenas this summer, with the outing tentatively scheduled to begin on April 28 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

311, whose "Flowing" single from is currently number 17 on the Alternative radio charts, is in the waning days of a tour with Jimmie's Chicken Shack (see "311 Taps Jimmie's Chicken Shack For U.S. Tour, Signs On For Sega Games") and will take a few weeks off before offering a preview of its tour with Incubus during a three-date run in late April.

Incubus opened for 311 at a concert in Winston-Salem, North Carolina back in February, and 311 frontman Nick Hexum told the MTV Radio Network that he considered himself a big fan of Incubus' newest record, "Make Yourself."

"The new Incubus record is insane," Hexum explained.

The band recently celebrated its annual 3-11 Day in New Orleans, and Mayor Marc Morial officially proclaimed the day, March 11, as "311 Day" in the Big Easy. The group commemorated the occasion by playing a 47-song, 3-hour and 11-minute set at the State Palace Theater that same evening.

The 311-Jimmie's Chicken Shack outing will roll into Wings Stadium on Kalamazoo, Michigan on Wednesday night and is now scheduled to conclude on April 3 at the Hollywood Palladium in West Hollywood, California.
