The Pier’s 4th of July Weekend Show Locator!

The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator is back for the big 4th of July weekend with a whole mess of reggae fun for the next 3 days! Check out this edition for all this weekend’s shows including Damian Marley, John Butler Trio, Katchafire, House of Shem, and many more.

The summer is pumping along with festival season in mid-swing. But it’s more than just festival season; it’s also beach season and Vegas season! And this weekend is the perfect excuse to hit both at the same time with some classic reggae rock.

Red, White and BOOM! will take place Friday and Saturday nights at Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip. This 2-night event will be held at the Beach at Mandalay Bay as part of the ongoing Beach Concert Series and will feature none-other-than 311. 311 will perform exclusive sets each night on the beachfront stage rising over the surf of the wave pool. Friday’s set will include hits, classics, and rarities while Saturday’s set features 311 performing their 1995 self-titled album, aka the Blue Album (which includes well-known hits “Down” and “All Mixed Up”). And plan to stay out late after the show to catch the after-parties each night with Krooked Treez, Unity All Stars, J Randy, Los Stellarians and DJ Soulman.

Beyond the music, the show as a whole will be an experience. Throughout the 11 tropical acres, The Beach at Mandalay Bay has the previously mentioned Beach Stage as well as a lazy river, a sand-and-surf beach, and a wave pool producing up to 6-foot waves. General admission concert-goers have the option of lounging on the sand, wading in the wave pool, or upgrading to a VIP table, private cabana, or beachfront villa. And each night will conclude with a fireworks show over the Strip.

If that’s not enough reason to make the trip to Vegas this weekend, there’s one more thing to add. Many of us have been hearing about the 311 Amber Ale and anxiously awaiting it’s release. This weekend, fans will get the first taste of the band’s custom craft beer brewed in partnership with Rock Brothers Brewing (who is known for it’s many previous specialty craft brews including Umphrey’s McGee’s Nothing Fancy Everyday Ale in Chicago and Hootie The Blowfish’s Homegrown Ale in South Carolina). Rock Brothers co-founder Kevin Lilly had plenty to say about the new brew and 311’s heavy involvement in the entire process:

“Besides the obvious connection to the band’s hit song of the same name, 311 wanted a very drinkable amber ale with a craft beer twist. After several meetings and tasting sessions with 311, it became clear the band wanted great taste with a bit of complexity.”
– Kevin Lilly, Co-Founder of Rock Brothers Brewing

Twenty lucky fans were randomly selected for the first-taste contest and will be treated to the first, and FREE, cup of 311 Amber Ale before the Friday show. But don’t panic, everyone will get the chance to try the new brew as it will be served at both beach shows on Friday and Saturday, and at various establishments within the Mandalay Bay Resort Casino.

Remember to come by here every single Thursday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
