The Never-Ending Summer Tour featuring 311, The Offspring and Gym Class Heroes took over Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, CA on July 29, 2018. Gym Class Heroes kicked off the show with fan favorites "Cupid’s Chokehold" and "Stereo Heart". They were a lot of fun with a lot of fan interaction pumping up the crowd. The Offspring always puts on a fun show with a lot of energy. Fans always know all the words and there is something really special about hearing the words to “Bad Habit” screamed loudly by 10,000 fans! The ambience changed when a piano and candles rolled out for Dexter to play an emotional “Gone Away”. Everyone lit up the venue with their swaying cell phones. Closing out the show with “Self Esteem” got the pit jumping again though.

311 never has the exact same set list two shows in row; that is a real treat to keep fans guessing on which of their favorite 311 songs will they hear that tonight. At Mattress Firm, everyone did get to hear “Amber”, “Beautiful Disaster”, “All Mixed Up” and “I’m Down” closing out the amazing Never-Ending Summer night in San Diego.
