I hope everyone had a great Halloween! Sorry for the late post, but I just received a rare recording of the 1999 Halloween show at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA, that I am now ready to share. Many thanks to Terri Sapp for providing this extremely rare recording! It’s awesome to hear rarities like “Rollin’” and their cover of “Sweet Child of Mine” at such a historic show!
Below is a picture of the poster from this show:
I did a little research and compiled a list of all of 311′s past Halloween shows:
10/31/1995 – Georgia Theater, Athens, GA
10/31/1997 – The Greek Theatre, Berkeley, CA
10/31/1999 – The Tabernacle, Atlanta, GA
10/31/2000 – The Tabernacle, Atlanta, GA
10/31/2001 – Universal Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, CA
10/31/2003 – Sound Advice Amphitheatre, West Palm Beach, FL
10/31/2005 – Moore Theatre, Seattle, WA
10/31/2010 – Fox Theatre, Atlanta, GA
However, Nick shared an interesting tidbit of information on Twitter today. He said:
I wonder if there is a photo of me dressed up as Courtney Love in a baby doll dress for Halloween in ’95 in Baton Rouge. Opened w miss world
This is relevant because the first recorded 311 Halloween show in the setlist database is noted as having taken place in 1995.
Nick responded a little while later to someone saying that the show he was referencing must have been in 1994 or 1996 instead. I think it must have been 1994, since there is a pretty comprehensive list of shows in the setlist database for 1996.
