311, Cypress Hill and G Love & Special Sauce will join forces for Unity Tour 2013. This marks the 11th consecutive summer that 311 has headlined amphitheatres with their summer Unity Tour. We will be covering the Cincinnati show and we couldn’t be more excited!
This year’s installment of the annual summertime trek hits amphitheaters nationwide from July 2nd to August 4th (itinerary below). Tickets for select shows go on sale starting April 12. On-sale dates listed at www.311.com/shows.
311 vocalist, Nick Hexum says:
“We’re super excited for Unity Tour 2013! We had a blast touring with Cypress Hill in ’96 and with G Love in ’03…and we’re really glad we can all hit the road together this summer. Will make for a killer show. Lots of sick hip-hop beats and summertime grooves. Gonna be fun!”
After years of incessant touring, 311 have developed a reputation as one of the most entertaining live bands in the U.S. Their celebratory live shows and hybrid sound have earned them a massive grassroots following and a catalog of modern rock hits, including “Down”, “All Mixed Up”, “Amber”, “Come Original” “Beautiful Disaster” and “Sunset in July”.
Cypress Hill have sold over 18 million albums worldwide. With hits such as “Insane in the Brain”, “(Rock) Superstar” and “Hits from the Bong,” they’ve been nominated for three Grammy awards and are heralded as one of the best known and most respected groups in all of Hip-Hop.
G Love & Special Sauce bring their alternative-blues-hip-hop sound back to the Unity Tour – after joining 311 for summer 2003. G Love’s unique sound has led the group to major festival appearances (Bonnaroo, Lolapalooza, etc) – and to collaborations with artists such as Jack Johnson and the Avett Brothers.
311’s Unity Tour has included Snoop Dogg, Sublime with Rome, The Offspring, Slightly Stoopid, Matisyahu, The Wailers, The Roots and Ziggy Marley. Unity Tour 2013 featuring 311, Cypress Hill and G Love & Special Sauce promises to hold tradition by being the concert party of the summer!
