How do you celebrate a "War" of sorts? Well, if you are the Jared Leto-fronted 30 Seconds to Mars, you do so with a show. Let us explain. The band will play its 300th show in support of its third studio album, This Is War, with a special Tribus Centum Numerarae concert at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on Dec. 7.
The band will also set a new Guinness World Record for the most shows played during a single album cycle. This Is War was released in December 2009 and the band has since circled the globe numerous times, playing over 300 shows in almost 60 cities in six continents! The math says it all: Thirty Seconds to Mars toured a lot!
Tickets for the Dec. 7 concert go on sale starting Saturday, Oct. 22, and the band is also planning a special week of unique shows celebrating the milestone, beginning on Dec. 5.
"We have been on the road for an incredible and insane two years and thought what better way to celebrate the end of this phenomenal journey than with a week of special shows in New York City," said frontman Jared Leto. "We thought documenting this for posterity with the Guinness Book of World Records would be fun especially as we aren't any good at growing our fingernails very long or cultivating the world's largest squash."
No long fingernails and no huge squash! Just rock.
