Way back in 1998 actor Jared Leto got together with a couple of friends in Los Angeles to form a rock band. Well, actually one of these friends was his brother Shannon. Despite all the grief and doubt we place upon actors who double as musicians, his band 30 Seconds to Mars has gone on to plenty of commercial success. That can be backed up by the fact that the first 30 Seconds to Mars show on May 3rd sold out quickly. There are a few tickets left for the second show, but you’ll have to be quick to grab one.
30 Seconds to Mars is made up of the aforementioned Jaret Leto (guitar/vocals), Shannon Leto (drums/percussion) and Tomo Milicevic (guitar/keyboards). The band has released three albums so far, including: 30 Seconds to Mars (2002), A Beautiful Lie (2005) and This is War (2009). They have been classified by critics as having a sound that belongs in the post-grunge, hard rock and alternative rock genres and cite bands like Alice in Chains, Deftones, David Bowie, and Jane’s Addiction as influences.
This general admission show is for all ages.
