311: Summer Unity Tour 2010

Starting next week, Chad Sexton and 311 will embark on their 2010 Summer Unity Amphitheater Tour spanning across the US. The tour, which starts on June 18th and runs through the end of July, will also include special guests The Offspring and Pepper. Becoming a summer tradition, 311’s Summer Unity Tour guarantees to be one of the hottest concerts of the summer season, and 311 never fails in living up to their guarantee. Hot off their infamous 311 Day in Las Vegas, Chad and the guys return to the road to deliver the hit songs that have made them one of the biggest bands of today, while also mixing in some instant 311 classics from their 2009 studio release, “Uplifter”.

Pearl artist, Chad Sexton, has made a household name for himself throughout the drumming community. With his impeccable grove, beautiful use of ghost notes, and his unforgettable snare tone, Chad’s work with 311 has inspired thousands of drummers worldwide and he continues to leave crowds in awe night after night. For the Summer Unity Tour 2010, Chad will be out with his Reference Series kit in Purple Craze (#193). The blend of the wood and ply combinations in the Reference shells give Chad the perfect tones throughout his setup, pulling the highs of the birch/maple of his rack toms, down to the maple/mahogany of his floor toms, kick drum, and gong drum.
