Well, it's a possibility... I'm not really sure how this Summer Unity Tour thing works, but it's like a tour in which every year this band 311 headlines at? Does anybody know if it's a big tour like Warped Tour?
Because if the headlining band really is 311, I don't think The Offspring would play in that tour... Pardon me for my lack of knowledge in this area, but 311 isn't a maisntream band like The Offspring, is it?

yeah 311 are pretty mainstream they play them on kroq and other radio stations here but i can't see offspring opening up for them either i think the last band they opened for was ac/dc

Yeah, that's what I thought, too. Last time they opened for someone was back in 2001 when they opened for Ac/Dc and Queens of The Stone Age in the Milton Keynes stadium in England, right?

Also, they'll be busy this year working on their new album, right? I do see them playing some concerts here and there, maybe doing a couple of festivals in Europe, but I don't see them playing such a big tour in the USA before they release their new album, and I don't think it's very likely that they'll release it before June.

311 doesn't have nearly as large of a fanbase as the Offspring. It seems kind of laughable that they're suggesting the Offspring will be opening: even a co-headlining tour would seem out of place.

Never could get into 311 myself: seems like typical radio jockrock.

Edit:

As for their summer touring plans: it seems they will be playing shows, but i'll bet it will be only mostly festivals.

311 touring with The Offspring? Some strange decision in my opinion.

Now both 311 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/311_(band)#Uplifter_.282009.E2.80.93present.29) and The Offspring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Offspring#Next_album_and_beyond_.28since_2009. 29) Wikipedia pages are apparently mentioning this rumor.

UPDATE: Just removed the the 311 and Offspring tour speculation from the Offspring's Wiki article.

It's an interesting match up. But I think it will be a good show.

you couldnt be more wrong about everything. 311 has a huge fanbase, its just mainly here in the US, not worldwide like the offspring. 311 is far from radio rockjock. in fact, they are hardly played on the radio at all unless you live in LA. and the shows on the tour will not be festivals. they will be regular shows

no offense to all who like 311, but i'm not a big fan.
Unity tour vs Shit is Fucked Up tour?

I loved both these bands since 6th grade. I dont know why so much hate on 311 on these boards and vica versa on 311 boards but if you dont like 311 leave after offspring and problem solved. Other then that this should be one epic show
